I woke up today and did my AM work out, a 2 mile run and 45 minutes of pilates and everything was fine. My hubby and I got in a tiff but cleared it up pretty quickly. Even though I am not mad at him now I still feel frustrated and I dont want it to effect my PM workout because that is the important one (boxing). Even though I have been doing this for years I still get off track easily if I get upset. I realize that I am overly emotional due to being postpartum but knowing doesn't help. I will NOT let this derail the good day I was having. I need to just get out of my funk!

You're going to be boxing! A little anger I would think would help <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Take out your frustrations on the punching bag or whatever you box at! Sounds like a lot of working out. How are you not exhausted especially since it sounds like you have a new baby!

I WISH anger had a use in boxing. It just makes you distracted, drop your hands and get tired faster <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> Sucks. The best boxers are the calmest. I need a shot of calm lol.<br>
I DO have a new baby, he is going to be 13 weeks on Monday <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I kept up with my workouts up until 6 hours before I gave birth, I am mentally exhausted from the postpartum depression (very very minor) and anxiety but other than that I already have two tots so a third isnt a big deal since all he does is eat and sleep LOL. I go to bed early every night and follow a really strict eating plan, I do housework inbetween workouts.....<br>
Of course my husband had to just go back and reopen the tiff so now I am even more bent out of shape. I just have to keep telling myself I am not going to let his piss poor attitude get me off my game. No one can control my emotions but me and I am doing a bang up job!!!

I don't mean this in a bad way at all but you are CRAZYYYY!!! What workouts did you do when you were pregnant? And what guidelines do you follow for eating? I'm ready for some tips because I'll take your kind of energy and motivation! I suck at getting into a workout routine. I have always been naturally thin so as bad as it is I don't stress to much on working out. I do some walking everyday but on a consistent basis that's about it. I love the feeling I get when I work out but I just can't get into a routine. I like my sleep way to much and so waking up earlier than I need to doesn't work so well for me and by the end of the day I just want to relax. Basically, I'm lazy and I haven't gotten unlazy yet haha!

thank you! lol being fit during pregnancy makes people call you crazy ALL the time. I dont mind at all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I am naturally small. I'm short and I have a tiny build. In HS I was almost 170lbs (i am good around 108-114) and it was all from bad eating and no exercise. When I was 15ish I became and instant vegan after doing a research paper on factory farming ( I am about to turn 27) and the weight FELL off. I went to college and I maintained through diet and minimal exercise. After college I got married and had 3 kids. In between my 2 sons I lost over 80lbs I had gained during my first pregnancy. I changed my whole lifestyle and really focused on fitness. I love working out, I didn't at first. I had to force myself.<br>
When I was pregnant I did prenatal pilates and yoga, boxed 3 days a week and ran. I did all of this up until I gave birth. I just modified my boxing routine as I got bigger LOL.<br>
My eating guidelines are pretty simple.<br>
I stay as far away from processed foods as I can<br>
I eat 5-6 times a day or whenever I am hungry<br>
I eat 45-55% carbs, 30-40% protein, and the rest healthy fats<br>
I take a multivitamin and B-12<br>
I dont keep junk in the house but I have a weekly cheat meal which includes a glass or two of wine <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> (gotta live!!!)<br>
Oh and I drink a gallon or more of water a day, I dont drink anything else<br>
Working out for me now is really about improving my cardiovascular health, lower my stress levels, improving strength and flexibility. I am studying for the ACSM (American college of sports med) certified PT test because its the hardest one out there. I want to start my own business eventually <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Wow good for you! I've always been relatively thin as well but when I went vegan in February (from vegetarian) I instantly dropped 5 lbs. (I'm 5'8, and around 125 now. For a while I hovered around 130. It's not overweight by any means but I know that's not where my body wanted to be. I just felt bloaty and gross.) When I did a detox not long ago I dropped to almost 120 and I even thought I looked a little too thin. I have a really weird little margin that I feel like makes a big difference on how I feel and look. Since I stay at that point with no extra effort from exercising it's hard to get myself to do it. I need a routine. I'm also kind of an all or nothing person so that makes its kinda hard sometimes haha.<br><br>
Good for you to be taking your health and life into your hands so much! What kind of business do you want to open?

I hear ya, I used to be an all or nothing person and you just cant be if you want to make healthy lifestyle changes (when I say "you" I am speaking in generalities). Exercise lifts my mood, helps with stress, strengthens my cardiovascular system, increases bone density, and about a million other GOOD things so its not hard for me to stick with it.<br>
I would like to open my own personal training business, especially for mothers and pregnant women.
