So week three is complete. I continue to make progress each week. See highlights from this week below!
My energy level has really improved. I am getting plenty of sleep. However, on those extra long days I drink my spark and I have plenty of energy to make it through.
I continue to lift for an hour or more a day. I am also doing cardio following my lift. I have been able to up the weight each. So I feel like my lifts are really improving.
The soreness has gotten much better. I feel like I am getting back to a normal sore after lifting. This has really been helpful in adding additional weight and reps.
I am now taking the following products which are breastfeeding safe and seem to be really helping with the weight-loss, energy and soreness.
-OmegaPlex (Omega 3’s)
-Catalyst (Amino Acids)
-Coreplex (Multi Vitamin)
-Spark (B-12 Energy Drink)

BREAST FEEDING (MILK SUPPLY)
Even while losing weight I am able to keep up my milk supply. It seems that as long as your nutrition is in check, you can continue to produce milk without any issue.That being said, having a large milk supply while doing plyo or push presses at the gym makes for any excellent show for all. LOL Even with a good sports bra.
This week I lost another pound (ONLY 5 MORE POUNDS OF FAT TO GO). Once I reach my goal I will share my progress photos from beginning to end!! Watch out for future posts! Only 9 weeks of prep left:-)

Wow, way to go! Curious to know how much weight you gained during your pregnancy?
Thanks! I gained a total of 37 pounds:)
Wow, that’s impressive!
And how wonderful that your milk supply hasn’t been affected.
You give me new hope! I gained 38 pounds and am down 28 right now at 7-weeks. I obviously need to step up the weight training through because despite only being 10 pounds from my goal, I feel flabby.
Thanks. Yes, weight training helps a lot! Even if your weight stays the same, if your body fat drops and muscle increases you will look more tone:) keep up the good work.
This makes me super excited! Curious to know what your diet/ meal prep consists of! I have a 5 month old andni want to start training for a show soon! But worried about what to eat that will accomidate my diet and my nursing!
