What, if anything, are you doing, or do you plan to do, to get back in shape post baby?

I've been walking since getting home. Started ab centered workouts last week and started running yesterday! It feels amazing to get out and be active again

I thought about how I am not losing the weight like I did last time.

Then I got a Boston Kreme donut this morning.

I was planning to start doing yoga and Pilates this week, but then I got sick and decided to put it off until I fully recovered (including my milk supply). I will definitely not do anything to compromise my supply. I found last time that losing weight too quickly or cutting back on calories too much would affect my supply. So...my plan for now is to start with core strengthening/yoga, then after 6 weeks, add some light cardio and see how it goes. I didn't REALLY focus on losing weight last time until after 12 months (after Grace was eating more solids and I wasn't pumping anymore). It'll probably be the same this time. I have much less to lose this time.

I am using MyFitnessPal to keep track of calories and nutrients...mostly to help me make sure I'm eating enough calories, protein & fiber. MFP really helped me get & stay on track with losing all my extra weight after last pregnancy.

I would love to redo Couch to 5k. I love it, but I'm afraid running with these boobs might be dangerous! I wore 2 bras when running before, so I don't know what I'll do now.

Im not doing jack. I belong to our local Y and my friend is a pilates instructor and I love her class but I'm not ready to put baby in their babysitting room yet and I'm not sure my doc would be thrilled if I started working out prior to my 6 week check. It's getting warmer though, I'll be walking more. I had weight to loose prior to getting pregnant so I've got about 25 pounds I want GONE

I am not doing anything yet because walking around the house is still a challenge for me. I am still really sore down there! Once I am healed I will start getting active again. I miss it! I would love to do couch to 5k once I feel more recovered. I will start out with walking the dog and then the elliptical and then try some jogging. I would love to run a 5k and see both my girls waiting for me at the finish line!
