My Postpartum Diet & Fitness Plan - Phase 2

So far I think my postpartum diet & fitness plan has been going well. I've made a few small changes to reduce my sugar intake and up the amount of protein in my diet.

I have however, gone a little overboard with treat meals with my birthday celebrations and other social events this month so I haven't actually lost much weight (only 0.2kg/0.4lbs)..but hey it's better than a weight gain I suppose!

So here are the changes I've made to my eating/exercise plan since last month..

Poached Egg on Wholemeal Toast with Avocado
Instead of Rice Bubbles or Nutrigrain

Hot Lemon Water
Instead of a Cup of Decaf Tea with 2x Arnotts Biscuits and 1x Paleo Nut Ball 

Morning Tea
Cup of Decaf Tea with 1x Double Choc Protein Cookie
Instead of Green Smoothie (I have it with lunch now)

Toasted Sandwiches on Multigrain Bread
(Ham/Tuna, Corn & Cheese)
No Change

Green Smoothie

Afternoon Tea
Low-fat Yoghurt
Instead of Yoghurt + Tea & Biscuits

Healthy Home Cooked Meals (At least 5 per week) including Salmon & Veggies.
Instead of Healthy Home Cooked Meal (At least 3 per week)

Cup of Decaf Tea with 1x Double Choc Protein Cookie
Instead of a Cup of Decaf Tea with 2x Arnotts Biscuits and 1x Paleo Nut Ball 

2 Litres of Water

2x 30 minute walk/runs (with the couch to 5k app)
2x Blogilates workouts
2x 30 minute walks with James

I don't always get time for morning and afternoon tea so I try to have a filling breakfast and lunch to keep me going. I've loved going back to the gym and sweating it out too, I just wish I had the time to go more often.. it's a lot harder when you have a little bub with you. I can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can start working-out outside!



  1. I admire your efforts toward health. We should all be doing this.

  2. You're doing really well, you should be proud! :)

    Does James sleep really well in the evenings? I'm so jealous you can have healthy home-cooked meals each day! It's a battle to find time to eat, never mind cook at the moment, haha! I try have healthy cooked lunches instead to make up for it, as baby usually naps better then. Early evening he just gets overtired and needs to be held and settled often, not ideal when we want dinner!

  3. You are doing so well and you look amazing. I need to be doing what your doing, I just have no motivation at the moment. Im blaming it on the weather, I so sounded like my Mother then she blames everything on the weather.

  4. well done you for sticking to it, I am desperate at dieting, might nick the recipes though :) x Marina

  5. Good luck! I finally hit the gym (6 months post-partum!) I'd been trying to do some small 10-minute workouts to keep me going though. I tried watching what I was eating, but it started messing with my milk supply (and while Ollie was going through a growth spurt!) so I had to nip that in the bud (oh darn!)


I ♥ reading all of your sweet comments, thanks so much!
