2017 was my best fitness year to date! After receiving my personal training certification I took on a challenge many women shy away from in fear of “gaining too much muscle”. I entered a National Physique Committee fitness competition. To be honest, I didn’t want to gain “too” much muscle either, but I also knew going into it that if the body is capable of gaining muscle it is also capable of losing it. So I dove right in by giving myself 12 weeks to transform my body. I didn’t hire a coach (because they are pretty pricey) but if this is a route you want to take I would highly recommend hiring someone to help you. Why?…well that will be a separate blog post =)
The competition wasn’t my only major body transformation in the past year. I also had a baby! I know right!? What the heck…I’m all over the place! So for all of you moms out there wondering how to get back in shape after carrying a human inside you for nine months I’m right there with you! You can follow me on my own journey to get back to my goal weight!
This page will give you all the tips and tricks I used to go from 155 pounds and 28% body fat to 130 pounds and 12% body fat, but I also hope it gives those of you simply wanting some new workout ideas or motivation a place to check out on a weekly basis. Not to mention…I LOVE looking cute when I work out so I’ll definitely fill you in on where I get my stuff;) Like this outfit here!…not going to lie Maristella Citelli is one of my go-to’s because no one has her stuff AND it’s so comfortable and slimming. I always get so many compliments when I wear her leggings and tops.
Okay that’s it! NOW LET’S GET STARTED ON THAT POST PREGNANCY BODY! (my upcoming routine will also help those of you non-preggos out there looking to drop some pounds before summer!)
