Give It BACK!!!

Give it BACK! I yell each day at my two little boys.

What do I want back you ask...well that would be my body.

Almost four years ago I was so excited to find out I was pregnant with E, then after eating everything in sight (french toast combos from Village Inn, Pop Tarts, Chips Ahoy! cookies, etc.) and gaining a whooping 70 pounds I decided next time I'd do it differently.

Post E, I lost some of the weight and even did a triathlon, but was NEVER where I used to be weight-wise or athletic-wise. So, when I was preggers with G, I thought this is my chance I'll eat healthy do prental yoga, try to keep walking, but extreme nausea and a placenta tear at 22 weeks made me be on unofficial bedrest.

So, now I am DONE! I love you both, but I'm DONE with getting pregnant and watching my body billow out to no man's land, and breastfeeding with ginormous boobs. I'M GETTING MY BODY BACK!

How you ask...

Well, I mentioned here that I was going to start Farrell's. For those of you that don't know about Farrell's let me fill you in.

Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping (FXB) is a 10 week extreme training program. Basically, you workout six days a week alternating kickboxing days with resistance bands. The biggest difference between FXB and other programs is the focus on nutrition (which I REALLY need help with).

My idea of nutrition is to just not eat, which is TERRIBLE, so now it's all about eating six times a day. Small meals with an emphasis on protein. 

More of this ....

Less of this.....

It's pretty intense, but it's exactly the swift kick in the ass that I needed.

After the first couple of days I REALLY went balls out in kickboxing class. The funniest thing is I can't seem to kick or hit the bag without grunting and gritting my teeth. I look and sound like a wild animal, but oh well what can I say I'm into it.

The coolest part is I've made some workout buddies. We bond over the fact that we all despise push-ups, the fact that if they make us do one more jumping jacks we will pee our pants and comparing protein bars and shakes (Yum?).

While it is hard to drag myself to the gym each night and not get done until it's pitch dark outside. I'm bound and determined to take back my body that was hijacked by two little boys.

On our first week my coach asked me to write down my goals and here are mine...I'd love to hear yours and what you are doing to RECLAIM YOURSELF FROM MOMMYHOOD!

My goals:

1. Have a better relationship with I HATE IT!!! I am a recovering anorexic and thinking about it, planning meals, etc. FREAKS me out. My biggest issue isn't eating too much on my free day as it would be eating too little...

2. Do another triathlon and get a better time...I did the QC Tri two years ago and ended in 2 and a half hours (pitiful), so REALLY want to improve that.

3. Lose the baby weight (20 pounds)!

Three weeks down only seven more to go...stay tuned!

I reached my heaviest weight ever while pregnant with my 2nd baby. So after I was given the go-ahead to work out, I started doing some light cardio and weights at the Y. Even though I was going to the gym regularly, I wasn't seeing the results I wanted. So I started doing some research about what kind of workout classes the Y had to offer, I figured I could acheive better results if I was actually working with an instructor that knew a thing or two about getting in shape. I stumbled acrossed Body Pump and gave it a shot. I've been doing the class 2-3 times a week for over a year and a half and have never been in better shape! I, too, have made some class friends and have even got my sister addicted to the class. Doing classes/group exercises are so good for everyone's morale. Keep up the good fight, Red! ;)

As a fellow "mom of two little boys" I hear you all the way. I've decided that with I won't ever have more TIME for workouts so I need to amp up the intensity. Although I loathe running with every fiber of my being, I'm determined to move from my walking workouts (fast paced--4mph) to running using one of the couch-to-5K plans. First step--get the treadmill working again (late fall break down) because I'm not gonna get started only to get derailed by ice!

It sounds like a great program. I struggle every single day with food issues. Every single day. So stressful!
I hope you are wonderfully successful with your program! It seems like you will be!
