After pregnancy I decided to set a goal for myself. I wanted to get back to my previous fit state. Not where I was just before I got pregnant. I wanted to set the goal to where I was a few years before. I found a picture pre pregnancy where I was at my most fit. I was lean with muscle and felt my best. While I am fully aware of the toll pregnancy takes on your body, I don’t feel this goal is completely unattainable. It takes a LOT of hard work and dedication. Not only in the gym but in the kitchen as well!
I’m already 8 months post baby and my goal was to be as close to my previous size as can be by one year. I still have 4 months remaining and I’m pushing harder now that I’ve got my strength and energy fully back. It’s definitely an uphill battle. But if I can get myself to 80-85% of what I used to be I will be beyond happy. I feel I’m currently at about 60% so my goal isn’t too far off! These next few months will definitely be the hardest. I know I’ll need support from everyone around me to keep me going.
