weekly weigh in

136.7 lbs

Slowly but surely I am getting back to my pre-babies weight. The belly toning...well that's another story and will likely require thousands of crunches and hours of cardio. 8 weeks post delivery and I feel fantastic and my clothes fit (minus the boobies)....that's all I can ask for at this point.

I joined Goodlife fitness. I have a great home gym but I like the outing. 3 times a week I head there for resistance training and some time on this beast..

My ass thanks me for it.

I've also pulled out my crazy dance cardio DVD...

if you are/were a dancer and you want a challenge, get this's fun to learn the 8 routines. It took me about 2 weeks to master the routines and be able to dance the entire 40 minutes.

My heart thanks me for it...and so do my calves.

My meal plan is clean and stacked with protein and fibre....I made some great coconut chicken fingers (thanks to Rachel Ray) last night for the fam....they were a hit! Simply cut up your chicken into fingers, and dip into beated egg, then panko crumbs and finally into unsweetened coconut. Bake at 350 for 20min or pan fry in some EVOO.

Stay fit and healthy this weekend!


  1. Kudos to you for getting into the exercise already -- but then you were already so physically fit before your pregnancy, and I swear the only way to survive parenthood is with regular exercise!

    I love Goodlife - I've been a member for over 4 years now, and I do mostly the classes (occasional weights) but the childminding is what kept me on track. Working out with no worries about the kiddies. Perfect combination.

    Now I just need to focus on the healthy meal stuff...

  2. Oh, and i'll have to find that video - my fave class at goodlife is bodyjam!!!

  3. I have to pull out that DVD again, after seeing her on Regis and Kelly I am inspired.

    Great job on your fitness! I knwe you would be in fighting form fast. Don't worry about you tummy, it will come back!

  4. UGH, that tummy thang, I know it! Mine is still slowly returing back to normal. I had stretch marks so that doesn't help the overall look!
    Those chicken fingers sound great. I'm gonna make them soon!
