That doesn’t mean I haven’t been doing anything though, instead of running I’ve finally been able to start my online fitness class from Dr. Joanna Helcke. Originally I was meant to start this whilst I was still pregnant but I went and had baby boy the day before my membership was validated. Still that means my entire membership will be focussed on the post natal program.

My Postnatal Body
I thought I would be brave enough to share my postnatal body with you all for comparison.
I will do regular updates as I progress with the program.
I debated about adding my weight or not. For me it has never been about the number on the scales but the number on my clothes. I ummed and ahhed and then did it a little more until I reached this decision:
The Program is pregnancy and post natal friendly Pilates which doesn’t rush you at any stage. In fact the first 3 weeks are videos that are getting you used to the idea of exercising and talking you through what your body has just been through with pregnancy and labour.
The video in week 3 has an easy to follow guide and demonstration on how to check if you have an abdominal separation, which I never knew. I do as it happens, a very very small one. But one I’d never have known about without being shown how to check.
And from week 4 the exercise has started, nothing too daunting, each video is between 17-18 minutes long with a lot of focus on your pelvic floor.
