Since having my son every one that meets me says one thing, "You look great! What do you do?" And I answer with honesty, I actually worked really hard to fit back into my clothes.
But I didn't just exercise the weight off. I am a firm believer that abs are made in the kitchen. I eat a high protein diet in order to build my muscles and only eat carbs and sugar from fruits and vegetables. Since becoming a mother though I found my self starting to snack on things that my son eats. Bananas or crackers were our go-to snack in the afternoons and I realized it was a problem when I had finished his box of organic cheese crackers while he napped.
Now I keep on hand Lorissa's Kitchen Meat Snacks. They are delicious savory meat snacks that are 100% grassfed beef, which is very important if you are practicing a true paleo diet! NO GRAINS ANYWHERE! Lorissa's snacks are free of nitrates, added growth hormones and gluten. And the best part is that they have 11 grams of protein in them! Lorissa's snacks do not require refrigeration which makes for the perfect snack after I have lifted at the gym or done a long run!
But let's be honest the best part is that Lorissa's snacks taste good. My favorite flavors are the Korean barbecue and ginger teriyaki! Way better than bland baked chicken I was packing around.
Head over to amazon and try them out for yourself here.
Now don't get me wrong. I didn't just eat high protein foods and got back in shape. Though it did help! But I worked out...a lot. Below is my weekly workout routine that I followed after I had my son. It required no gym membership or equipment which was perfect for us and I chose to sprint because it was quicker and built more muscles but feel free to do your mile at your own pace.
