Real Life: 3 months goes by way too fast! I can't believe its already 2019 and I have a 3 month old to experience life with this year :)
As I sit here with little Emma sleeping in one arm, typing with the other, and Boozer trying to steal a shoe off of my foot...I'm so excited I'm finally finding the time to write this update :)
I feel like we are slowly getting our groove back (or I am) haha. Emma is getting more fun by the day and we love our new adventures as a little family of 3 + Boozy!
Since the New Year is finally here I feel like it's time to get myself together and set some goals for 2019...YAY! This update has all the things mom life, coaching, and my postpartum diet plan for this year!
Mom life is getting better every day - even though every day is different :) We're loving our snuggles, laughs, and she literally just rolled over 30 minutes ago...nothing is safe anymore! lol Today we ventured to the gym for an hour and Emma enjoyed watching me try and get fit again. Lately I've been doing the Street Parking workouts (if you don't know what that is...I'm gonna link it for you cause you should!) It's an online community that posts daily workouts that take 45 mins to an hour. They are seriously awesome and fun and I don't think I'll ever go back to anything else lol #momlife
As for coaching - I'm slowly getting back into it! It's been tough to find the time and while I'm still breastfeeding Emma it's hard to get away for more than 2 hours. But it's worth it :) Once I'm back into my new routine you'll be able to find me with my CrossFit Bound fam and my new gym CrossFit 11:24!! Super excited to be a part of these 2 amazing communities - If you haven't checked them out, please do! If you're in need of a personal trainer in Kennesaw/Marietta just shoot me an email and we can get you started! Or come check out one of my classes when i'm coaching! I'd love to have you :)
Now for the fun part....The RP Strength Transformation Challenge! This is the start of my New Year goals and I hope this can give some motivation to new moms or anyone out there looking to make a lasting change in their diet - so if you know someone who needs some extra motivation...share this little blog with them :)
As the New Year approached and I got closer to 3 months PP I knew it was time to get my nutrition back in check. I'm feeling good in the gym, movements and strength are coming back, but I know my diet has been lacking. I honestly didn't do much working out until a few weeks ago - Emma was born in Oct. and I started consistently working out in Dec. - I really gave my body time to recover until I felt good and less sleep deprived. Now I'm squeezing in 5ish workouts a week and I feel ready to start cleaning up my nutrition.
Anyone that knows me KNOWS that I love me some RP Strength (diet templates). I've had great success with RP in the past - You can read about my first cut I did HERE - I did the 1:1 coaching and I was able to lose 10lbs during the cut and that was 20lbs down from my highest weight ever. After having Emma - I am back to the exact starting weight I was before my first cut (funny I know) and I hope that I will have the same success as my last cut. This time I am following the templates on my own and I am also currently breastfeeding so I may have to tweak some things as I go - but we shall see! I think these next 12 weeks will be more exciting than my last cut and I can't wait to see my postpartum results.
I decided to join the 2019 RP Transformation Challenge to keep me motivated. The extra accountability will be nice since I will be coaching myself this time. Below is my before picture. I can't wait to see the changes that happen and how much Emma grows during that time too :) These will be such fun before and after pictures!
I plan on making 3 blog posts during this diet phase. I'll post at the end of each month to update and keep track of where I'm at. I will be starting at #159 and hope to get back to #148ish (Just like last time)
