The year I graduated from college, I dragged my ass to the gym every morning at 6:30am to run on the treadmill for 30 min and then lift for 45 minutes.
I gained 30 pounds that year.
Most women think that burning as many calories as possible, regardless of how torturous and boring the activity, is the best way to lose weight. But the reality is that long, unpleasurable, stressful workouts will cause nothing but weight gain.
I cancelled my gym membership and started doing independent programs I actually enjoyed like hip hop, running, pilates and Liz DiAlto’s first program, Tighter in Ten, which helped me get super sleek and sexy before my honeymoon.
You may have heard me talk about my good friend, fitness expert and female powerhouse Liz DiAlto before. As you know, I have a very specific attitude about physical activity and how it relates to weight loss, and Liz is one of the only people I trust when it comes to working out.
So when it was time to start getting back to my body after baby I called Liz right away. She told me about this amazing program that she was releasing and let me sample before the doors opened this week. I love all of the perks I get from my friends:). I’ve been doing Wild Soul Movement at home a few mornings a week while Marshall is napping and I have seriously never experienced anything like it. Not only do I get a great workout but the program is truly awakening my femininity, sensuality and soul again — god knows we all need that!
As you know, I only tell you guys about things I truly love and have experienced and I feel really passionate about this one. You see, so many women work out to change their bodies but Liz and I believe that we should work out because we love our bodies. Tweet it. So many workouts take us outside of ourselves and make us feel rigid and robot like, but Wild Soul Movement brings us back to our bodies and our wild side;). I can’t recommend it enough, you can check it out and enroll in her program here.
I’m in Mexico with Jonathan and Marshall this week doing yoga, lying on the beach and continuing to discover the “new me” post baby. I can’t wait to connect with you when I get back.
