GT Get Fit Tip: How Do I Lose This Baby Weight?

After 9 months of carrying a baby things will take time to get back to normal.  It takes about 4 weeks for the uterus to shrink back to normal size while losing 8-20lbs of extra fluid.  Once the fluid is gone, whats left is the extra FAT gained during pregnancy.

Trying to get back to the gym can sound like a good idea but things are hectic with newborns; time constraints, crazy schedule, guilt and mood swings can all make it difficult to make workouts.

Don’t sweat it, keep it simple and  focus on what’s important like nutrition, your baby, and rest.  Find a support group of like-minded people (neighbors, church, friends) to get ideas and help from, you’ll be surprised how creative other moms can become with little children.  If you can’t dedicate a trip to the gym, think about splitting workouts up into small segments of time, 10mins is better than a big O!!

Don’t get overwhelmed and worried about a few extra pounds of fat, keep things simple and relax, you have just brought a new living being into this world and now is the time to enjoy what you have created.

If you do need extra support or workout ideas please let me know, I have an infant/crawler workout for moms called BABY WEIGHTS I would love for you to join us.

Pregnant with TWINS? 5 things you must do!

The number of twins born in the United States has more than doubled since 1980 with about 140,000 sets of twins born in 2008, its becoming more common.

Personal trainers have to take special considerations with pregnant females when administering exercises and when you deal with twins you have double the pleasure.

5 things you must do when pregnant with TWINS:

  1. Stay HYDRATED – consume 100+ ounces of water a day.  When dehydration occurs your blood can become thick and harder to pump which can induce contractions and the onset of preterm labor
  2. Increase Calories during the day – don’t starve yourself you are eating for 3 now – increase your calorie intake around 400-600 calories.  Eat up but make healthy choices bc you don’t want to add extra processed foods or chemicals
  3. Not Exercise TOO MUCH – a little exercise is good, but a lot is not better!!  Get with a certified personal trainer to construct a personal workout you can do – 15-30mins activity is best but not too strenuous, you want to strengthen your joints, not over work them bc extra bodyweight will come
  4. NOT Party Hard – be a tiny dancer.  Don’t jump shake your booty and slam beers down at the club – Alcohol is not good for a developing fetus – violators should be SHOT
  5. Stay away from the litter boxcats can carry a disease called toxoplasmosis that can cause birth defects.  Get the babies daddy for this one
