I hesitated to share workouts during and after my first pregnancy because I didn’t know what I was doing with so much conflicting information out there. I needed to go through it from start to finish to feel confident in sharing my favorite routines. That being said, here is my second workout video featuring a […]

They say the first 12-13 weeks after a baby is born is called the 4th trimester. The baby is still an extension of you as they adjust to the world outside of the womb. There is a lot of change and development going on here for both mom and baby. More importantly though, if you […]

10 minute Postpartum Abs Workout – Diastasis Recti Friendly

www.youtube.com/watch?v=efRIomiKWBU

This workout for the most part is safe to do if you have a diastasis recti! I would modify the plank and do one from your knees or simply do a reverse plank which essentially is like bridge with hands underneath shoulders and your body is parallel to the floor from your shoulders to your […]

Connor, Two Month Newborn Update

I’m sharing a two month update for Connor partially for myself and for others who might have a baby younger and wondering, what’s next? Maybe you have a baby the same age and curious if you’re getting more sleep than I am! While every child is different and there is no normal, I love being able […]

How Much Exercise Do You Really Need?

As a former gym rat who thought I’d get “so skinny” if I ever ran a marathon, I can tell you that the more time you workout does not directly impact how much you weigh or how strong you get. It’s about training smart. This should come as a relief if you are reading this postpartum or […]

How much weight I have to lose isn’t weighing me down

It’s funny how things change in ways you never expected. I fully expected to be overwhelmed with two children but I’m shocked to feel rather stress free. Everything is a phase, I know that now. While both kids may be crying at times, Connor won’t remember and Tommy likely won’t either. One way I usually […]

10 Things I Did Not Expect To Happen With Baby #2

I had a lot of anxiety before giving birth to Connor. I expected a rough recovery, painful nursing sessions and the baby blues. I however did not expect these 10 things to happen… #1. A long labor. Every one told me the second child comes FAST. People warned me about staying on Cape Cod until […]

Postpartum Update: Nursing, Hormones, Tommy, & more

It’s been over a week since we became a family of four. I loved writing my birth story so I can remember it when Connor is older. I wanted to share a little today in regards to my own postpartum recovery, how Tommy is doing as a big brother and how we’re adjusting. Postpartum Life […]

My Postpartum Fitness Plan – My Time To Fly Again Is Coming

Sponsored by Zappos. I miss running. When I found out I was pregnant in October, I chose to stop because I didn’t enjoy feeling like I had to pee every 5 minutes. I was also pretty into the Peloton bike at the time. Fast forward to my third trimester when the warm weather arrived and […]

When you have the same sex child for number two, you do not get another shower or a sprinkle. You do however get the chance to buy the things yourself that you wish you had registered for the first time. For me, this meant placing a focus on convenience and sleep. Before Tommy, we were […]
