There are supposed to be new mothers who simply lose weight through breastfeeding and have their old figure back after only a few weeks. Unfortunately, I am not one of them. My way to the after-baby-body, so to my personal wellbeing weight, will be a little more exhausting. But I want to lose weight healthy and take the time that my body needs.
Healthy weight loss after birth
But first of all the facts. In the pregnancy, I have gained a total of 13 pounds. Nurtured I have a very balanced and healthy, even if I have discovered in the last weeks of pregnancy then but my love for sweets :) And even if a few kilos have already said goodbye, still missing 8 kilos to my feel-good weight, my after-baby -Body. And exactly the 8 kilos I pack now! Because when I look around my closet, it does not really fit much anymore.
Lightning diets and power sports are not allowed for the moment. During breastfeeding, care should be taken to maintain a balanced diet so that the baby, through breast milk, gets all the essential nutrients such as fiber, magnesium, zinc, vitamins B6 and folic acid. Even at the training you should first rantasten slowly. It is important to visit a recovery course after 8 - 12 weeks and strengthen the pelvic floor.
I want to lose weight healthily, so my plan for the next few weeks is a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables and much more Exercise.
I took some pictures of my training. You can do all the exercises in your daily walks. And the fitness exercises for mothers are still fun:)
Sportive Walks - Fitness for Mothers
At motherhood I love the vi Long strolls with prams, especially in bright sunshine. On the way I'm with Tom between two and five hours a day.Tom loves walks just like me and always looks fascinated from his stroller. In between, I change from a leisurely walk to a somewhat firmer walk. As I walk, I do simple sports such as squats or lunges, or use benches or railings as exercise equipment.
Wednesday's buggy fitness for us. When buggy-fit we walk with the stroller through the park, train with dumbbells, run up and down stairs or do abdominal-leg-butt exercises on the mat. The whole thing with a group of about 10 mothers and their babies. There is always something going on and you get a good sweat;) And sports in the group is just a lot more fun than alone. By the way: Buggy-Fit is a certified health course and is funded by health insurances with up to 80%.
What me too Kanga training is a try. Kanga is a fitness program during which the baby is carried in the baby carrier. Tom loves to be carried! Kanga training would therefore be a great occupation for us.
Gymnastics & Yoga
Since my regression course is now over unfortunately, I keep myself at home with my fitness DVDs in Shape. On 3 days a week I train with the DVD Shred: Slim in 30 days by Jillian Michaels . I've always had great success with him and now Jillian is supposed to help me get back to the after-baby body :) I'm curious and looking forward to the workout.
In addition to the sweaty training I love Yoga. Yoga is good for my back and gently brings me back into shape.He is doing gymnastics next to me under his play bow or is sitting in his Babybjörn seesaw and watching his mom training. The Babybjörn Balance Soft seesaw is really worth the gold for us, and Tom always squeals and beaming how much he likes her. Meanwhile, he has got the hang of it and can rock back and forth on his own. Thanks to Babybjörn, Mum can exercise, cook or take a shower in peace - without a bad conscience or a crying baby :) My absolute must-have for expectant mothers and fathers!
- Natural rocking and fun - no batteries needed
- 3 different heights for play, rest and sleep
- Exceptionally breathable - airy, quick-drying mesh
