Body After Baby: Four Months Later

Time is just flying by and I can’t believe it’s been four months since I had little Mateo! I’m really proud of my postpartum progress, not only physically but mentally as well. I have made some great nutritional changes that are making it easier to lead a healthy lifestyle.

When I reached my goal weight about two months ago, I stopped tracking my calories on MyFitnessPal. Now I just stick to a sensible diet of mostly protein and fiber rich foods. I have lost a few more pounds through weight-training, breast-feeding and eating sensibly. I believe that it’s necessary to track your foods and calories while you’re in weight loss mode. Now that I am just maintaining, I definitely get to enjoy eating out more, and let’s not forget my summer favorite…ice cream cones! However, I cook my own foods and eat clean and healthy 90% of the time. I wrote all the details on how I lost the bulk of the weight here and here. You can also scroll through the “Nutrition” link on my blog to see all my healthy food posts and updates.

My new fitness goal is to build more muscle all around and especially my lower body. Pablo (my hubby who moonlights as my trainer) has got me doing weighted squats and lunges and some serious ab workouts. I am in pain after our workouts, but I’m loving it! It’s exciting to know that I can change and improve my body, even after having three kids.

UPDATE 1/16/2015: I took a break but I am back on MyFitnessPal as MakeupbyAnaB. I am also active on Instagram at @Love_AnaB where I share more inspiration on food, family, and fitness. My beauty and fashion Instagram is @MakeupbyAnaB.  <3 Thanks for stopping by!

Love,

Ana B

  1. This is so motivating!!! I'm 22 weeks along right now, and have been worried of not getting my figure back. I'm also curious — you only lost 1 pound right after delivering your baby??

    • Yes, I was surprised to find that I had only lost one pound after the baby was born. Could have been extra fluids or swelling. I’m not sure…the point was to show that your body doesn’t immediately shrink after having children and that you could still look pregnant for a few days/week even though you aren’t.
