We just got back home a few weeks ago and it’s been crazy busy ever since we got home. We were gone for 3 weeks and boy, we are so happy to be back home in warm weather! Traveling with a toddler for that long, living out of a suit case is tough. Kaia is such a great traveler, so it really helped when we traveled to 3 different cities. We started our first leg of the trip in Seattle to see my dad, then went to San Francisco to see my best friend and then finished our trip in Park City for a little ski and spa time. Kaia was over the cold and snow, all she kept wanting to do was take a bath. Haha! She didn’t like the snow flurries hitting her face and getting all bundled up. She is a true island baby for sure.
As a first time mother, getting my body back has been a challenge. I was able to lose the majority of the baby weight after giving birth; it was just now finding the motivation and time to actually tone it all up, like my tummy. I’ve always had a pretty flat and toned stomach, but noticed that my body definitely changed after having a baby. My tummy wasn’t as firm and sculpted as it used to be. With a few things that I have incorporated into my every day fitness and health, I wanted to share 5 tips that I’ve been doing that have helped me banish some of that baby belly for more of a toned, sculpted abdomen.
Now that I’m 6 months pregnant, I’ve had to size up my clothing to comfortably dress for my growing bump. Every morning I wake up and look at my tummy to see how much it’s grown overnight. Ha! It’s so exciting to see and feeling her move is pretty amazing. (As she’s kicking me now!) I’ve really been trying to stay fit and healthy during my pregnancy with lots of swimming and yoga.
