A pregnancy leads always extra pounds.
Here are some practical tips to lose weight and rebuild muscle tone.
- Download an application that counts calories and marks the percentage of food that you have eaten. I use FatSecret. It is very useful because you got an overview of the foods that eat in your daily diet. For example in my case I realized I was eating too many carbohydrates and few fruits and vegetables.
- Go running together with your child. Take advantage of the nice days and run with the stroller with your child. I love run in front of my house along the river. Antonio is very happy, he likes watching the trees, watching the ducks that swim along the river. Run for five minutes more than in your limit. Bring with you: water for you and for your child, cookies, a jacket for you just in case your child wants to go out from his stellar. you will not take the risk of catching cold.
- Search a sport close to your home. Here in Nuremberg for example there is an association of Sport Post Sv. It is possible to subscribe the whole family. There are many points in Nuremberg where you can pratics sport. One course is 45 minutes and I find it very practical for mothers because it is easy to find 45 minutes in one week. Moreover in this association there is the possibility to apply for one place for your children during the slot of time where you are doing sport. (The child must be at least 18 months).
- Weigh and measure yourself. Make a realistic estimate of how much weight do you want to lose. Repeats the same operation one month later.
