Tamar did it. Tamera did it. Now, you can do it too! If you’re a new mom, get your post-baby body back with these fun, fat-burning fitness tips.
1. Make It a Family Activity
If your bundle of joy is at least 6 months old, you can work to get your pre-baby body back with your tot in hand. “After I had my daughter, I wasn’t in the best shape,” fitness expert Tiffany Rothe shares. “You know us new moms tend to have no time for ourselves and we feel guilty of we’re not with our babies. So, I created a workout we could do together.
2. Drink Plenty of Water
Be sure to stay hydrated, especially if you're breastfeeding! Nursing will also help you shed the baby weight.
3. Eat Superfoods
Focus on your nutrition during this time. One of the easiest ways to make sure you’re managing your portions and eating healthy food options is to meal prep.
4. Listen to Your Body
If you are in pain or feel any discomfort, listen to your body and take the necessary time to recover. Remember, your baby needs a healthy mom so take your time and don’t over do it too soon… no matter how bad you want to squeeze back into your pre-pregnancy skinny jeans.
5. Have Fun!
It’s not a race, so celebrate your small victories and take it a day at a time.
