Post Baby Body...Planning Ahead

   I'm over half way to meeting our new little princess! At this stage in the pregnancy I'm also thinking about anything and everything having to do with a 3rd child and all the changes that will be happening in my house. Quite honestly, I'm freaking out a little. Of course I'm doing all the typical things parents do when prepping for a new arrival, but I've also decided to take the time to focus on myself while I still can. 

   27 weeks pregnant, which means in 13 weeks or less I will be meeting our new tiny princess. One of the things women typically worry about with pregnancy is the ever so dreaded weight gain that comes with the territory. I can happily say that I've done extremely well with this pregnancy and so far only had a 12 pound gain. But as we all know, the 3rd trimester tends to have the largest weight gain. Since I probably won't have a ton of extra down time once the baby arrives, I've decided to go ahead and start planning to lose the baby weight and get my body back. 

   I've decided that I'll be following the 21 Day Fix nutrition plan at first but won't be doing the workouts until after my 6 week postpartum appointment. It's quite possible that I won't be doing the exact workout routine for this program either, but a mix of P90X and my own stuff. I will be sharing this journey on my blog, along with my workout routines and some recipes. 

   I'm super excited to share this experience with my readers so definitely be on the look out for that to start in a couple of months.
