We are well on our way heading into Week 3 of 12 in our “after baby #2” workout series.
.
How are you liking it so far?
.
As you will see below, my body is really shaping up. I recommend you doing weekly pictures as the scale sometimes does not give adequate information about what is really going on with fat loss.
.
Point in case; the first few days of lifting weights I was putting on weight. When you lift weights, water shifts into your muscles causing weight to increase. BUT, eventually you will lose the water and the scale will start to show that.
.
It helps if you increase your water intake these days to help you lose your water faster.
.
FINALLY after week 3 I am motivated by what I see and the scale keeps on dropping numbers; along with my dress size YAY!

Workout 4

Cardio — same as last week but add 5 extra minutes:

What I want you to do here is 20-25 minutes of moderate intensity on stairs, treadmill, run etc.

I did stairs again; 10 sets of 100 stairs (walking up)

    I LOVE that you’re doing this and posting your weekly photos! I’m curious to know what nutrition plan you’re following – I own most of your programs (skinnyliscious, muscleiscious, full-body-licious, etcetc) and would love to know which approach you’re using during these 12 weeks.
