Clearly if you gain less weight during pregnancy you have less to lose later so reducing the gain is important. But, did you know that LESS THAN HALF of doctors talk to their pregnant patients about weight gain? Crazy right?? With so many women dealing with obesity and weight only a minority of docs bring it up. Why this is even more alarming is that pregnant patients who have more conversations with their doctors about weight gain end up gaining less weight!!
he basic idea is to use an interval running strategy that alternates short bursts of high cardio running (tough pace, incline) with slower periods (slower pace, no incline). Studies have shown interval training can boost your metabolism and cardiovascular capacity, AND this has the added benefit of allowing greater efficiency (workout is shorter, but you’re burning more energy then if you were running a steady pace).

A Beautiful Baby Boy Arrives…weight still here
As I mentioned in my earlier update, we welcomed a new baby boy in March. Sure, I might be a little biased but he is pretty much perfect. Already full of smiles and playing games…I think he’s going to be a runner. One thing that has also stuck around (after 6 weeks) is some of the pregnancy weight. That doesn’t mean I’m going to stop trying to shed it.
After a pseudo-false alarm and a second fast drive to the hospital, we made it to the delivery room just in time to welcome our third child (a BOY) into the world! His big sisters are incredibly proud of their new baby brother and excited to teach him all about ballet, princesses and Disney shows….and I’m sure he’ll be excited to learn. As we’re all settling in and getting adjusted to each other posts will be a little more sporadic in the following weeks, but can’t wait to share our adventures as I resume my quest to regain that pre-pregnancy body and lose my pregnancy weight from the third pregnancy!
Make it a great day!!
Ten Things to Do BEFORE You Try to Lose Pregnancy Weight – Part 1
Mid-week Post, Sports Authority Coupons and Updates…oh my!
Happy Hump Day to all!! If you’re like me, you’ve started to make a dent in that holiday shopping but nothing meaningful yet. No worries yet, right? It’s only December 5th. Of course, that leaves us with 20 days but who’s counting. While procrastinating is kind of a specialty for me, I’m more interested in getting things done sooner rather than later this year. So, if you’re planning on shopping for the running mom in your life this weekend feel free to use this link to get 20% off a SportsAuthority item over $99.99. This is only good through Sunday, 12/9 so no more procrastinating. Discount is good either online OR in the store.
Thanks to all those who have supported me by voting on TopMommyBloggers (see the link on the right) and feel free to vote again if the mood is striking you.
I’m working on a refining my post-pregnancy goals in a little more cohesive state and formulating a new post-partum fitness guide that I think will be useful to many new moms out there. If you have any questions about how to start running after your next baby be sure to drop us a note or comment – we’d love to hear how it’s going (good and bad). WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST SURPRISE OR CHALLENGE FOR YOU WHEN RUNNING AFTER PREGNANCY?
Make it a great week!
