Inspire me: Healthy

I’m not sure if it’s the heat and we are all forced into our skivvies or what but blog land has been booming with healthy inspiration for weeks now and I am loving it!!! I have been eating healthier and working out on my own but now Kristen and Raven have started a link up, the perfect way to help keep us all on track.


Height: 5’5’’

starting weight before I was pregnant: 135-140


Final weight during pregnancy: 166

baby pics 015

Current Weight: 144


Goal Weight: 130-135


Workout 4-5 times a week

Cook 4 times a week

Drink 8 glasses (64 oz) of water daily

I have been told that while I am still breastfeeding my body will hold onto some of the fat that it needs. So while I am not going to dwell on the POUNDS at this point (my baby is #1)  I want to feel better and get back in shape so I am going to track progress, workouts, water intake and weekly meals just to keep myself accountable! Even if you aren’t shedding pounds, guaranteed if you are working out, and eating better you will start to feel better and that is great motivation right there! Here’s to getting healthy and feeling great! Hope you will join!


  1. This link up is so awesome! I love women banding together for positive change!

    For the record, you are gorgeous! I always held onto the last 10 pounds until I was done breastfeeding, but then the poundage literally fell off afterwards.

  2. I think you look GREAT!! And I think you have a perfect plan to get you where you want to be!!

    Thanks for linking up!! Look forward to seeing your updates!!


  3. I can't believe you got back to within 10 pounds of your pre-preg weight so fast!! You look awesome!! I gained close to 50 pounds and it certainly does take a while, and in my case, it's especially slower while breastfeeding. You can't really diet in the traditional sense because you will kill your milk supply and it's important to eat when you're hungry (even if it seems off because the baby could be going through a growth spurt). It is weird to think that way but if you are always putting good things into your body, you're doing the right thing. I finally got down to the +10 pound mark about 6 months pp. I am probably going to hold onto these last pounds, just like you said. But that doesn't stop me from eating healthy and going to the gym!

    Again, you look awesome and I know you can do it, girl! I know how frustrating it is (believe me, when the scale didn't budge an entire month I about lost it) so feel free to complain with me any time!!!

  4. You look great!!!! We can do this!!!!!!!!!

  5. I'm in about the same boat as you!! My goal weight is 130-135, and I'm in the 140s too. Let's get there together :)

  6. You look awesome! And you can definitely do this!


Your comments truly bring me BLISS! Thank you!!
