I'm still awaiting the arrival of my little darling, although we are in the final count down with less than a month until she makes her debut into the world... I guess you could say I'm a bit of a planner though, because I'm already starting to figure out how I'm going to adjust into a healthier lifestyle once she arrives.

While I don't plan on heavy work outs or dieting by it's definition, I do want to work towards my pre-pregnancy body as quickly as possible so I'm starting to work out my nutrition plans, take into consideration which work outs are plausible, and I'm hoping that I'll be able to make a few minor adjustments to my schedule to ensure both her and I are getting everything we need out of life. If you're a new mama or expecting any day now as well, today's post is for you... we're going to be in the same new baby situation soon and I'm hoping we both are able to achieve our goals quickly!

It's true, all of the steps that lead to a healthier life are fairly important, we all know a healthy lifestyle begins with nutrition so I'm taking the time to plan this part of my life out first and I suggest you do the same!

I'm a bit of a sugar addict and I love snacking but instead of grabbing for "the bad stuff", I've replaced my snack options with Weight Watchers healthier snacks! It's great because I'm still able to indulge in chocolate and ice cream but I don't have to worry about the calories with the WW versions!

The best part is, I can pick up all my favorites any time I'm grocery shopping at Publix! If you're a mama like me trying to get your body back, I highly suggest you check out all the delicious options they have in stores. They literally have a little bit of everything from Double Caramel Swirl Ice Cream cones to a "turtle-esque" Caramel with Crispies candy and even sweet baked goods like Red Velvet Snack cakes and dairy products like Light String Cheese, now you can enjoy all your favorites without feeling guilty thanks to Weight Watchers!

It's so easy limiting my snacks to the healthy Weight Watcher options, that I'm also going to start meal planning and measuring my food out in advance. Portion sizes and the quality of the food we eat plays an important part in weight loss! If you are striving for a healthier version of you, I highly suggest you start meal prepping in advance! It'll make the new mama life easier and it'll make you healthier!

The last item on my list of ways to adjust your nutrition to get your pre-pregnancy body back is to try and intake more water. I've always aimed for half of my body weight in water and after Delainey arrives I plan to drink even more! Our bodies are made up of H2O so be sure to drink plenty of water to supply your body with the nutrition it needs to function properly.

As I mentioned, nutrition is always the first step when working towards a healthier version of you,  but we can't forget fitness when we're talking about getting healthy! I'm fully aware that I'm going to have to limit myself at first when Delainey is born and that's okay... but once I get the go ahead I'm ready for some real fun!

Speaking of fun, that's my first fitness tip... Stop taking it so seriously! Spend a few minutes at the beach chasing after a ball while playing a game with a friend or take a couple seconds and practice yoga before you head out for the day. Either way, your body will feel revitalized and your health goals will be achieved a lot quicker!

Another way to make sure you keep your fitness on track as a new mama is to use a heart rate monitor to make sure you are working towards your full potential! HRM are easy to operate, most are super stylish now-a-days and they keep track of all kinds of different stats, from the amount of steps you walk in one day to the hours you rest, all without you having to press a button.

As I mentioned, I don't plan on jumping in head first to working out again, so instead of jumping into a work out routine that could cause some serious stress on my body I'm going to start out nice and easy. Walks around the block with a friend will be my first "work out", then I'll work my way up to practicing yoga, and lastly, I'll head back into the gym to get some weight training done... but it all needs to happen in "baby steps", after all Rome wasn't built in a day!



The last few items I want to address regarding your healthier lifestyle are actually all about your daily routine. While some of these things may be a given to a select number of people, it seems as though a majority of people don't take these things into consideration while trying to lose the baby weight!

We'll start with making sure you are getting enough rest... and with a baby we all know this is easier said than done. I suggest what everyone else says and that's to "sleep when the baby is sleeping". This may not always be ideal, but it'll help your body do what it needs to do in order to heal properly and ultimately, lose the baby weight!

Another adjustment to your routine you should consider is allowing yourself to set realistic goals. I mean we all have aspirations to look like a famous celebrity or even just a better version of ourselves, but let's start small. Grab a dress that you used to love to wear and your favorite pair of heels and place them in plain sight... that way when you are tempted to overindulge you can see your weight loss goal directly in front of you and choose healthier options instead!

The last tip I have for new mamas to help get their pre-baby body back is to breastfeed. I know this isn't always a possibility and I'm not insulting you if that's the case for you... but if possible, breastfeeding is a great way to shed extra calories and of course, feed your baby!

It's easy to say I'm going to do all of these things, so I'm wanting to hold each other accountable instead of just sharing this post. So tell me, are you a new mama hoping to lose weight or a seasoned mom that has already whipped her body back into gear? Either way, tell me all about your healthy lifestyle adjustments and how they benefited you in the long run, especially as a mama! I'd love to find some work out buddies and maybe some women that have more advice to share!

I'm hoping with our nutrition adjusted, our fitness plans altered, and a few lifestyle adjustments, you and I should be ready to lose our baby weight in no time flat! Now I just can't wait to bring Delainey into this world so I can join you on the adventure back to our pre-pregnancy bodies!
