{Mommy On A Mission} Operation Get My Pre-Baby Body Back!

It's been two weeks since having our precious baby Brock and I've been so excited to get back in shape! It's hard to believe, and even harder to admit, but 9 months of not being able to workout made for a 70lb pregnancy weight gain...yikes! I knew the minute I got home from the hospital I was going to get back in the swing of things and stop at nothing to get my pre-baby body back. I'm still not able to work out (other than walking and stairs), but thanks to clean eating and AdvoCare supplements, I've already lost over 25lbs!

I've decided to start documenting my journey and I would love for anyone who's interested to join me! Whether you're a new mom, have a little weight to lose, or just want to get healthy, follow along and feel free to share your weight loss journey, tips, & recipes. Here's a summary of my program and links to the products I use. I hope you'll join me in the journey!

A typical day for me includes 5-6 meals and tons of water! I've committed to eating clean and removing all processed foods from my diet.
