Postpartum with Advocare
Shocked! I am days away from having a 6 month old. Compared to my first baby, little Miss Eva has been a challenge. As difficult as some days and nights have been. They seem to have flown by!
Long story short…
This is my second baby, and my second fitness journey! I started working out when my son was just over 1 year old. I had tons and tons of trail and error. Too much cardio, or not enough food, not enough cardio, not enough carbs, to many carbs and and not enough protein etc…When I finally found what works best for me, I was reaching my goals a lot faster. THEN, I decided it was time for baby number 2.
My FIRST PREGNANCY, I was lazy! Slept and ate. Not to mention, my nutrition was HORRIBLE . The most activity I got was going grocery shopping and walking up the stairs to the apartment we use to live in.
My SECOND PREGNANCY I was soo much more active. I even continued with weightlifting and cardio. My nutrition was so much better than my first pregnant but not as good as I was planning. Eh, Pregnancy cravings. What cha gonna do. Its not always easy passing up Pizza when your emotional from just picking out Paint at Home Depot for the Nursery!
I continued taking Advocare while pregnant for the extra calories intake that I was losing while working out. My Goal, obviously was not to lose weight, but stay active and also make sure my calories were high enough for Me and Baby!
Then After having the baby I started the 24 Day Challenge right away.

So this post I want to update on my almost 6 months postpartum progress with Advocare and of course in addition to working out and nutrition.
I started working out in the beginning of January but I wasn’t getting enough sleep to start a consistent workout regimen with little to no sleep. Little Miss Eva had her challenges the first few months, but my tough little girl(and Mommy/Daddy) are just about over that bump in the road… Or giant hill, mountain, whatever.
I bought myself a new workout machine, which I have to add, I felt horrible, because When This Momma makes Money, Its like pulling teeth to buy myself a shirt, let alone a huge workout machine, But us Moms deserve stuff too right? lol Continuing on, I got that in the middle or end of March! So I would say that’s when I started a actual workout schedule of 4 to 5 days a week and I’m slowly finding a good routine being a busy Mom of 2.
The picture below is about 5 1/2 months postpartum and in the middle you’ll see a picture of me 38 weeks pregnant. Same shirt.
That’s the girl I’m competing with, This was right before my second pregnancy! My goal that I am desperately trying to get back to and also Beat. Patience crystal, patience!
