It's been a year since I had my son, Jackson, and I wanted to do a post on how I got back to my pre-pregnancy body. It wasn't easy, I wanted to give up, but I kept going. Having a great support system also helps - A LOT.

My pregnancy with Jackson was a lot easier than my pregnancy with Charlotte. I gained 40 pounds instead of 63. I stayed as active as I could - lots of walking, some yoga, and light weights. My diet was 80/20 Paleo - sometimes you need pizza. Getting back into the workout routine was a little tough. Having two C-sections, and getting back into the workout routine wasn't easy.
After having Jackson, I did a few Whole30's, I eat a mostly Paleo diet, and worked my ass off. Running, yoga, lifting weights. I was never big on lifting weights - that area of the gym scared me. Now, I have no problem doing the leg press, or working my arms. I used to just do cardio, and leave.
Don't mind my super red makeup less face!! I had a killer arm workout at the gym, and my arms were shaking trying to take my arm picture!! AND WHO WEARS MAKEUP TO THE GYM. HAHA!!
We should all inspire other people to be better, and work hard. Not compete with each other, and make someone feel bad for not looking a certain way. I have struggled with my weight after having my daughter in 2010 - it's not easy. Now I know what works for me, and what foods don't. Don't let anyone tell you that you cannot do something. KEEP GOING!
