4 Month Postpartum Update

Exercise: For the past 4 weeks I have been doing a combo of 21 Day Fix and 21 Day fix Extreme. I started adding Extreme in half way through the month. I have been using my Beachbody On Demand. Feeling so accomplished that I get to move on to the extreme workouts. Schedule I have been following is:  

Recovery: Good. I haven't had any bleeding since the end of November. Which I thought I was back on a regular cycle but I guess I'm not. Way not! 
Weight: Pre-pregnancy weight:237.7. Weight morning of birth: 264.8. Current weight February 1: 243.9. I lost a total of 1.6 pounds. I was aiming for min of 2 pounds lost, max of 4. I did lose a lot of inches though, so I am quite pleased with that. Adding in the strength training. I already am feeling much stronger. 

Next Months Goals: I am still aiming to lose .5-1 pound a week since I am breastfeeding. I think that that is a safe amount to lose without sacrificing my supply but also making sure I am eating enough "good stuff". Goal for eating is to follow the meal plan 90% of the time, allowing our Valentine's Dinner to be my only "off meal". In all honestly, the accountability from sharing my journey and in my groups is what is keeping me going everyday. I have a natural drive to exercise and eat right, but I have even more of a kick to just KICK BUTT and show everyone that it is possible to lose weight while breastfeeding.
