Momma's Getting Her Groove Back!!

The Time Has Come!!

It is time for me to get back in shape and into all my clothes!

While I was pregnant with Harper I tried to eat healthy and monitor my weight gain with my widwife. In total I gained 43 pounds. 6 weeks after Harper arrived I had lost 26 of those pounds. Now 2 1/2 months later I am standing firm at the 26 pound weight lose and ready to lose the rest NOW!!! I was hoping that breastfeeding would help me lose the baby weight but unfortunately I am done nursing so I cant count on those extra calories being burnt that way so it is time for the old fashion plan to workout, and diet.

First up:
I am going to stay under 1200 calories a day! I am also doing a semi liquid diet this week to jump start my weight lose starting off with these green smoothies:

These might look gross but I made one this morning and it ROCKED!!
Here is the recipe
1/2 cup ice
2 handfuls of spinach
1 banana chopped up
1/2 cup mixed fruit
a splash of milk (i used skim)

I also am going to stick to meal planning. When you plan your meals out you stick to them rather than going from day to day.

Now for the workout. I plan to do a combination of:
HOT YOGA (once a week)

Jillan Michaels workout tapes at least 4 days a week

And then a abs, arm workout developed by a friend of mine!

Wish me luck I have exactly 75 days till I need to be in a bathing suit!
