Protein Smoothie Challenge For Breastfeeding Moms To Increase Milk Supply + Lose Weight

Breastfeeding and losing weight is a difficult task for almost every mama. The goal is to keep up your milk supply, while also losing the extra baby weight gained during pregnancy. This is exactly what your body is supposed to do after having a baby: use stored fat to help produce a healthy supply of breast milk. But, with all the processed and yummy treats available today, it is so easy to survive off a less-than-nutritious diet. We fill our plates with foods and dishes that are created for flavor and comfort, rather than nourishment. This is where breastfeeding mamas can have some issues because if your body is in a nutrient-deprived state, it won’t want to let go of fat as easily. You can force it to do so by eating too few calories, so it has to burn fat cells, but you can also make your body feel…

The Truth on Exercise and Milk Supply for Breastfeeding Mamas

Exercise can affect your milk supply as a breastfeeding mama, but not with the gravity you might expect. Many breastfeeding mamas worry that exercising postpartum will negatively affect milk supply, and cause a drop that will affect their babies. This isn’t entirely true, and it is definitely not a main cause for milk supply to drop. The truth is, many mamas start dieting while they are exercising, so there is a nutrition factor going on at the same time as the exercise. Your milk supply could appear to be dropping, but exercising isn’t the cause. If a mama reduces calories, but does not maintain a highly nutritious diet, then we have a recipe for your body to struggle making enough milk. Lose the Baby Weight While Breastfeeding with this FREE 5-Day Jump Start! In reality, most postpartum mamas entering into a fitness plan aren’t burning as many calories as they…

Fit Mommy + Toddler Workout for A Fast Calorie Burn + The Best Yoga Mat Review

Working out with a toddler is interesting, but you can still get in an effective calorie burn if you do the right moves and make it fun. PLUS, toddlers act as a nice weight, and they seem to like being lifted and thrown around!

My 5 Steps to Staying Fit With Kids + How I Stay Fit With Three Kids At Home

Losing the baby weight is a difficult task, especially when you have multiple children. Even once the baby weight is gone, maintaining and staying fit with kids is also difficult. I have managed to lose the baby weight three times now, in addition to staying fit with three kids at home. I don’t have a gym membership, so there isn’t a time for me to workout with no interruptions. Unless I want to workout in the middle of the night after I get all my blogging-related/momlife things done. But that just doesn’t work for me. I also attempt to sleep more than 6 hours, so getting up before the kids doesn’t work well either. I’ve managed to get up and go for a run maybe three times in my life before the kids. It actually felt amazing, but it wasn’t realistic. So, how do I stay fit with three kids…
