Extreme “snapback” photos may be all the rage on social media, but one group of women is showing the real-life hard work that goes into post-baby bodies. These fitness moms are your everyday mothers who are documenting their individual pregnancy and post-baby health journeys on Instagram. From nutritious food choices to exercising, these moms are showing that holistic health during (or even before) pregnancy is where it all begins.
She’s a mommy of two who has put her time in the gym before, during, and after pregnancy.
2 babies…4 months postpartum and 100% happy with my physique. I workout consistently, eat a balanced diet without restricting myself and I have no concern with the numbers on the scale. My goal is to maintain a healthy lifestyle without feeling like I am bound by restrictions.
She is a mother of three who is all about the healthy lifestyle.
It’s so important to try to maintain a fit and healthy pregnancy. Not just for you, but for your baby .Don’t fall too hard for the “eating for two”? . Emphasis on “too hard”, trust me, I had days when I indulged in the tub of ice cream ,or craved a bakers dozen donuts. But, I was still mindful to keep a consistent healthy pregnancy. During all my pregnancies I stayed fit by keeping up with good protein( salmon, chicken,) lots of vegetables for good vitamins , lots of water( gotta stay hydrated).
Two boys and a girl later, and she is still working out.
the grind… pays back?! snapping back is a pretty amazing benefit but it has always been the extra icing on the cake to me after 3 pregnancies. exercising while preggo kept my body FEELING strong, energetic, and capable of managing all the curve balls pregnancy can throw while growing another human being. that is so much more important to me than just looking the part.

I’m tired of hearing negative people say “your body is never going to be the same!” to women wanting children. And they’re right– with discipline, consistency and the right plan you will look and feel even MORE amazing after kids! ?.
She is a mom of one plus another on the way.
I took my time and decided to research eating clean and focusing on making this a lifestyle NOT a diet. It took me about a year to lose over 70 pounds, got pregnant and gained 40 and lost it again. Take time and focus on lifestyle changes not dieting.
This mommy is all about being active!
