    HOW TO SAFELY DRY YOUR MILK SUPPLY

    Hunter and I went on an all-inclusive trip this past week. When we started planning on this trip I knew I wanted to continue feeding Declan with breastmilk after we came back. I planned on what I was going to do there to keep my milk supply up but also be able to enjoy my time over there.

Even though I was frustrated I realized that I was either going to have…

    The day (s) I cheated on my diet

    Have you ever started a diet and you quit on the first day?? So this is my story… If you have read my first blog post on how I am planning on getting healthy you probably already know that I gained 10lb when I first got to the USA. Since then my husband and I started to try to lose weight. We would start a diet and in less than a week, we would quit. I remember that before I was married I was very active, so I could eat pretty much anything and not gain weight. Well once I got married things changed I wasn’t active anymore and I…

    How to lose weight while breastfeeding

    If you haven’t read my weight loss journey click here, I go in full detail how I gained weight after moving to the US and when I got pregnant. So I finally got down to my pre-baby weight. However, honestly, I am very proud of myself. It took me five long months to get to this point. However, I have been able to breastfeed my baby through this whole process and for me that is the most important.  I heard so many people tell me that when you breastfeed, you can lose weight faster. I don’t know who came up with this, but I am pretty sure it was not a…

    My weight loss journey

    Today I am going to be writing about a forbidden topic. Weight loss. I haven’t lost the weight yet. In fact, you are going to walk with me as I am losing weight. But before that happens, I am going to tell you how I got here. Before I got married, I weighed anywhere from 110lb to 120lb. I think that was a good weight for me, even tho at that moment I thought I was huge. I know, now I look back, and I think how stupid I was for thinking that. But anyways… When I first got married, I thought I wasn’t going to gain any weight. I…

    Water! Water! Water!

    This is going to be a fast and easy post, and I hope it will be super helpful too. When trying to get healthy one of the first things, I hear is: DRINK MORE WATER. That is because water is extremely important and beneficial for your health and weight loss. However, for a long time, I was struggling with drinking my water goal. I bought a 24 oz purple with a straw bottle of water to help me stay hydrated, but for some reason, I was still not meeting my goal (my goal is five bottles a day). What I did to help keep myself accountable was: I have to…
