Before pregnancy as most of your know I was actively competing in NPC Bikini competitions. Over a 17 week period I transformed my body into that of a national competitor. See my transformation stage pics below.
HOW DID I MAKE THIS TRANSFORMATION?
I get this question a lot and of course no one likes the answer. Its not magic. Clean eating, regular workouts and supplementation. There is a science to making your body into a machine! That being said ANYONE CAN DO IT. Anyone that can stick to a plan that is:-) For more information on my daily workouts see my bodybuilding.com article.
It was a couple of weeks after nationals that I found out I was pregnant. My husband and I were thrilled. However, once the initial excitement
wore off, I thought to myself how am I going to stay in shape during my pregnancy? Well, it was a challenge. I gradually had to cut back on my
lifting. However I was able to continue my advocare supplements and TRX workouts throughout my pregnancy.
I attribute my Spark and TRX workouts to allowing me to have enough energy to teach TRX even at 9 months pregnant!! In addition, I did my best
to eat clean and avoid excessive weight gain. However, my baby was two weeks late. So, what does that mean? She weighed in at 9 pounds. Yes,
that is not a typo. lol
Anyway, what that mean for me was more weight gain than I had hoped. In the end I put on 37 pounds. Checkout my pre-pregnancy to 9 months
preggers transformation photos below.
ONE MONTH POST-PREGNANCY
After gaining 37 pounds and weighing in at a enormous 192, I am determined to drop the weight. I am currently one month post pregnancy and have
dropped 29 pounds now weighing in at 163.
I still have 8 pounds of fat to lose and I am working everyday to accomplish this. I plan to drop the remaining 8 pounds over the next 8 weeks and here is how..
How am I do I plan to acheive these results? I am glad you asked. Ready for the answer?
Clean eating, regular workouts and supplementation. LOL No one likes that answer. Let me elaborate. I am following the 24_day_challenge_for_nursing_and_pregnant_moms. This includes all of your meals and supplement plans. In addition, I am working out for 1 hour 5 days a week.
