Post Partum Push-Up Part 1
Now that I am done having children, it is time to get into the best shape of my life!
Thankfully, I have always done well getting my figure and strength back after pregnancy, so my body isn't too far out of whack, but this time, I really want to go for it! Health, strength, well-being....being able to chase after 4 young children!!!
So, here is my before report. I haven't weighed myself yet or taken any measurements. I don't usually do that until 6 weeks post partum (or when I feel recovered enough to resume a regular exercise routine). The top picture is my final pregnancy picture. My water had broken and I had just rolled out of bed. The bottom picture is 24 hours after delivery.
What I am doing now:
1. Lots of breast feeding.
2. Wearing a belly band to push my guts back into place.
What I plan to do next week:
1. Begin posture exercises to align my spine and hips after being curved and loosened from pregnancy and delivery.
2. Continue breast feeding.
3. Improve diet.
