Fitness After Baby - The "Bounce Back" isn't my jam.

It took me three pregnancies and three years to come to the realization that the "bounce back" just isn't for me. I follow some incredible mommies on instagram, women who practically give birth then go run a 5k to celebrate. These women are beautiful, inspiring and give me a hope that some day I'll be able to run without feeling like my who body is going to fall apart.

After baby # 1, I needed to get right have into running because I was training for the Goofy Challenge at Walt Disney, and I needed to get ready. I never imagined I'd end up running 39.3 miles through WDW at 5 months pregnant, but I did.

Then, right after baby # 2, and a move across the state... I tried to "bounce back" into running again.

So, here we are. 6.5 weeks after baby # 3 and I've decided not to lace up my sneakers and run. For the first time, I was not back comfortably in my jeans and under my pre-pregnancy at my 6 week appointment, and for the first time I'm totally okay with that. I'm still rockin' my maternity clothes, eating like a teenage boy and figuring out life with 3 girls under the age of 3 years old.

This does not mean I'm going to just continue to sit on the couch all day, unfortunately those lazy days need to start coming to a close and I need to start getting back into a fitness routine. So, that's why I am excited to join my dear friend Meagan with her 7 day to a flatter belly challenge. (Join the fun, here).


2 out of three of my girls were sleeping this morning, so I took advantage of the "free" time and did 1 rep. My goal is to do at least 1 rep 2x a day for the 7 days. I'll be posting proof pictures over on Instagram, so be sure to join in on the fun! 

Let's work on our tummies together, thanks MegForIt.com for the challenge!
