Zumba Baby

Today is the day to start working out to get my body back. Above is a video of Bess getting in on the action as well. Just too cute!!
I have decided to be brave and show you all what I am working with.

Over all for 6 weeks post partum I don't think I am in bad shape (however ugly my tummy may be). I have now lost all the baby weight from both my children, but my body is no where where it was before I got pregnant. My stomach is pretty flabby. I also just want to loose the extra weight I am carrying around. I would like to fit back into my size 5 pants one day.

So here is my plan and goals:

Plan: To work out 5 days a week. Right now I am planning on alternating between Zumba and's post pregnancy work-out. Zumba is a fun cardio work out, while the RealAge work out should help with toning up my flabby muscles. In May, I might switch up gears and do the 30 day Shred with my husband. We had plans to do this after my first pregnancy, but I got pregnant right away so it never happened.

Goal: I would like to get my weight down to 125lbs (56kg) again and tone up in general. Right now I am 143lbs (65kg), so I have some work to do!

I have never done Zumba before, but I used to love dance and looks like a lot of fun. Do any of you have any experience with it? Leave me a comment and tell me about it! I am hoping that by posting my pictures on here and the promise to keep the blog updated about my progress, that I will remain motivated. 

In the past I have been very good at not keeping up with whatever fitness routine I have decided on. 

Wish me luck!! I'm gonna need it!


  1. Oh she is so cute. I am impressed, it took me so long to start getting back into shape after the babies. I had mine close together, but not as close together as yours. I really had no excuse. I am visiting from the Monday Mingle blog hop and I subscribed to your emails. I don't see anywhere else to follow.
    Keep up the good work.
    I invite you over to my main blog
    and to my weight loss blog
    If you have a chance with how busy I am sure the little ones keep you.

  2. Hi :)
    Thanks for the follow, and for pointing out that I didn't have the follower thing up on my blog. I now do if that is easier for you. I will head over to your blogs now and check them out :)
