How I got my pre-baby body back | Lintgen, Luxembourg

After putting on 17kg (nearly 40lbs) during my pregnancy I was scared that getting it all off would be a huge challenge. I have always been lucky to be naturally slim, so I knew that getting into an exercise routine would be something difficult and new for me.

6 weeks after Emma was born I started my workout journey by taking long walks with the baby in her stroller. After a few weeks of building up some stamina and being able to walk for at least 1 hour I decided to add some extra cardio into my routine. That´s where The Bowflex Max Trainer came in! I knew I needed something compact enough to fit nicely into my home, but also something that would be efficient and not need a ton of time to get a good workout. The Bowflex Max Trainer was just that! 

The Bowflex Max Trainer (I have the M7i) is designed to give you an amazing full-body and cardio workout in just 14 minutes. It´s perfect for new moms as many of us don´t have enough time to go to a gym or even get a complete at-home workout done. I can easily find 14 minutes a day to hop on the machine and get a great workout in! Most of the time I workout when Emma is napping, but sometimes I have her on her play mat next to me. It´s so convenient to be able to exercise at home with the baby. No need for a sitter!

The Bowflex Max Trainer has it´s own free app which is compatible with Google Fit, Apple Health and My Fitness Tracker so you can easily track your progress.

Apart from using the Max Trainer I have also been having taking classes with #bodybyfleur once a week to help me tone up, stay lean and work with flexibility! You´ve probably seen our fun classes on Instagram. She is AMAZING! If you live in Luxembourg I absolutely recommend her.

I am also exclusively breastfeeding which means I have to be careful not to lose too much weight too fast and I cannot diet. I try not to eat sugar, so when I am craving something sweet I eat either fruit or low-fat greek yogurt with chia seeds, goji berries and honey. So yummy!

I have lost almost all my baby weight already. Just 3kg (6.5lbs) to go!
