5 reasons I went back to the gym!

Another part of pregnancy as we all know is gaining weight. It’s completely normal and healthy to put on up to 2 stone during these 9 months. I was careful to not over indulge, I definitely didn’t believe in the phrase “eating for two”, thats a cop out! I worked hard beforehand to get the shape I had, I was no skinny minnie but a nice size 12. I knew this whole gaining weight thing wouldn’t be on my side, in the end i gained around 18lbs. 

10 weeks on and I’ve only  lost a few pounds. So sorting out my wardrobe recently (getting ready for Summer) I came across some of my fav pieces from the past few years that won’t go next or near me. So of course I need a little help to shift the pounds! I went back to the gym 3 weeks ago, (7 weeks after giving birth) I was still quite tender but i’d got the all clear from my doctor and was keen to not wait any longer, I eased myself back in with a workout put together by the lovely instructor and I was good for the first 2 weeks but for some reason I didn’t go once last week.

Thats the problem you see, trying to get back in “the zone”. I did my first circuit class this morning and felt ill but all I kept thinking about were my lovely clothes waiting to be worn. My five outfits are below. Thats my incentive, whats yours?
