Shoes: Harolds (OLD!)
I cannot tell you how happy I am to not be wearing anything elastic waist or full-paneled. Bye-bye maternity clothes, hello new spring wardrobe!

At 5 weeks post partum, I am back in my regular clothes with only 3 pounds to go. I am shocked, honestly…this is not normal, right? With my son it took me a very long time to get my body back. With my first pregnancy I gained almost 40 pounds and it probably took a year to feel normal again.

Getting back into my skinny jeans is no miracle; I have to give credit where credit is due. The Bar Method is THE miracle worker.  I started taking the classes before I got pregnant and then 3-4 days a week throughout my entire pregnancy. I even happened to take class the day before I went into labor!… Continue Reading

My sister and law and I were sitting at the pool yesterday and she started telling me about this fitness blog she has been following. I was totally intrigued from the beginning…first off she told me that the girl (Zuzana) has an incredible body. In fact, I think the words out of my SIL’s mouth were “don’t let your husband see the site”. And when I saw it today, I knew what she was talking about! whoa. No wonder it’s called Body Rock?

That Tracy Anderson’s first book, The 30 Day Method, hits bookstores today?! I am kind of excited to see what it is all about, considering I am so obsessed with her DVD workouts. I am thinking this diet/workout plan in her book would be a good kick start (if you need it) or even a good way to get your body back after a baby. I might go to the bookstore tomorrow to check it out and report back. Any loyal followers who pre-ordered it already?

PS-our trip to Napa was a DREAM! A post with pictures is to come…… Continue Reading
