Fit after Baby


I am so excited to share with you that Boden has recently added a new activewear line!  This was perfect timing for me as I just had my first little baby 3 weeks ago (check out instagram for pictures.)  I gained 38lbs during my pregnancy, which was much more than I had wanted to gain.  I was a little nervous as to how hard it would be to lose it, but the main thing I wanted to try to focus on was being healthy.  And I was also very motivated to lose the weight, and honestly really missed running and hitting the gym!  The day I had Leighton, I started eating paleo again.  I think this has played a big part in me quickly shedding the pounds - that, breastfeeding and working out.  I started working out a couple of weeks ago, and it felt great!  I took it slow though and ran only a quarter of a mile and then walked the other 3/4.  I also have been lifting free weights at the gym and mainly just focusing on upper body right now since I wanted to take it easy as I still recover.  So far I have lost 32lbs and only have 6 more to go, woohoo!

With a new fitness goal to get in shape post-baby, it was so nice to have some new workout gear (especially since my old workout clothing is still just a little too tight.)  = )  Boden sent me a workout fitted tee, cropped leggings and a zip-up hooded jacket.  I love the quality of the material of each piece.  They are very thick and stretchy so I feel like they really hold me in and won't show any "dimples" here and there.  Nobody wants to see that!  I also love that the print comes in a dark blue - slimming!  The print is fun and modern and exactly what I would want to wear to go for a run in this fall and winter.  Make sure you check out Boden's new activewear line, and as a special treat, Boden is offering 20% off all activewear items plus free shipping with code YOGA today only!  What do you think about their new activewear line?  How did you shed the pounds after baby?

  2. You look great! If you haven't already, can you do a 'day in the life' of a paleo eater? I've been researching a bit but was just curious what your daily meals look like, how you can stick to paleo when going out to eat, etc. :)
