Kerri posted an update 5 months, 1 week ago
ok- weekly update here… I am 1.5lbs down from my last update 6 days ago. Slow progress but happy to be finally fitting into my pre-pregnancy jeans again ; ) Each day I am aiming for 3 miles or 30 minutes of exercise. Between swimming, running, barre, and my own PP workouts, I am feeling stronger every day. Today I did the following workout:
15 minutes on treadmill, alternating sprint/ jog each minute
bicep curls with forward lunge
overhead press with side squats
heel slides (for ab separation)
wall sit (1 minute with arm circles)
ab contractions (focusing on transverse abdominus to close Diastasis Recti)
15 minutes stairclimber, alternating side steps with forward steps every 30 seconds
repeating strength session above
10 minutes deep stretching/ yoga/ breathing/ abdominal contractions
1 liter of lemon water
Tomorrow, I’m breaking out my band and doing the Feel Good Workout right here on Postparty.
Food- wise- I am prepping once/ week. The fridge is always stocked with cut veggies, hummus, fruit, frozen fruit. I am making a smoothie for the whole family in the Vitamix, packed with spinach, kale, celery, carrots, avocado, frozen bananas, cocoa powder, Vega protein powder, and coconut milk. It makes crazy mornings a little less crazy. The kids drink their smoothies in the car on the way to school, and Tess drinks hers while getting dressed/ ready at home.
Throughout the day I am slicing hard boiled eggs, avocados, and munching on chopped veggie salads with tuna, quinoa, and pumpkin muffins. I have a big jug of lemon water prepared for all day drinking and a big stash of green tea (I love Yogi brand). Dinner is super simple: crockpot soups, roasted root vegetables, lean protein (salmon with sea salt and lemon can’t be beat), and a little hot cocoa for dessert (cocoa powder mixed with vanilla almond milk and stevia, steeped with hot water).
Happy even with my slow progress, as 4 little kids are eating up an awful lot of my time!
How are you all faring?
