Baby weight can be hard and challenging to get off.
After having my 3rd baby last October (2019), I struggled to get the weight off.
I don’t think hunkering down through Covid 19 helped much with my baby weight either!
It was time whether I wanted to or not, and I needed to start taking the pounds off.
So far I am 5 weeks into my fitness and nutrition plan and I wanted to highlight the items that have helped me the most with taking down some weight.
Note-I am currently down 9 lbs., I would love to get another 9-10 lbs. off in the next month, that’s my goal!
The process I have used to help me lose the baby weight has been a circuit training workout program along with tracking my calories and macros.
Here are the wonderful items I have used in my weight loss thus far, I am excited to share these items with you and if you have any more items you would add, please comment below!
In no particular order:
#1: MyFitnessPal App-
This App is great for tracking calories and macros. I just use the free version, and its very simple to use. You can even scan the barcode on foods and it enters the calorie information for you, which is wonderful!
#2: Renpho Scale:
I have loved using the renpho scale. It not only tracks weight, it also tracks, body fat, BMI, muscle mass, provides a chart of your weight loss etc.
The scale connects via bluetooth to a free app you download on your phone.
There’s something about seeing all the statistics of your weight that makes this scale different. I actually enjoy hopping on the scale to track my progress!
#3: Pro 6+ from Elevated Sports Nutrition
I love my Pro 6+ protein drink. I always drink this protein drink before, during and after my workout.
I feel that Pro 6+ gives me that added boost I need when working out. Even better, Pro 6+ DOES NOT have caffeine. This protein drink tastes great, aids in building lean muscle AND it hydrates well.
#4: Fairlife Protein Shakes:
I have LOVED these Fairlife Protein Shakes as a meal replacement. The chocolate and vanilla flavors both taste great AND they have 30 grams of protein which is PERFECT for counting macros.
#5: Fitbit Versa:
The fitbit versa has been a lifesaver when it comes to tracking steps. My goal is to get between 7,000-10,000 steps every single day. The fitbit versa has been my favorite watch to track steps, let me know when I hit goals, and many other features.
If you don’t have a watch that is tracking your steps, I highly suggest the fitbit versa, I think you’ll enjoy it too!
Hopefully these 5 items can be beneficial to you.
I might add, that it’s very important when you are losing weight, to go about the process slow and steady.
I have learned that it’s amazing what your body is capable of when you push yourself physically. Even more, it’s important that you AREN’T “dieting” in a way that you are messing up the body’s metabolism. Do your best, and you will slowly but surely see the results!
