13 Tips For Getting Back in the Exercise Game After Baby
Getting back in shape after having a baby is no small feat, and as the mom of a 3-month-old, I can certainly attest to that! It's recommended that women gain between 25 to 35 pounds during pregnancy, and while it's hard to imagine how your body will ever look and feel the same, it's also amazing how quickly our bodies can heal. That being said, losing weight is usually not the highest priority after giving birth, as you adjust to life with a helpless, around-the-clock feeding machine that relies on you for everything. Getting through the day may feel like a workout in itself!
When you do start thinking about shedding some of that baby weight, there are some things you can do to make the transition a little easier on your body and mind. If you were active during pregnancy and maintained some type of exercise routine, way to go! You're one step ahead already. But if you weren't able to exercise during pregnancy, don't worry, we've got some great tips to help you get back in shape and feeling great. Regardless of your experience level, check with your doctor before jumping back into any fitness routine.
