Now that I am a mother, I would like to focus on pre & post natal stages for today. I think it is safe to say that winning back your pre-pregnancy body is one of the top lists of the mothers. The key to it is to prepare WHILE you are pregnant! Yes, you need extra 300kcal-ish per day while you are pregnant, but it is not much, it is about 3 cups of 1% cow milk! For that extra allowance, increasing good proteins such as tofu and beans as well as whole grains are always great ideas. AND, walk whenever you get a chance! Walking is one of the best and easiest ways for pregnant women to stay healthy. I walked for at least 1 hour in total per day up until I went into a labor room and was able to maintain a healthy pregnancy weight on top of the healthy delivery. It also helped me to come back to pre pregnancy weight after a few weeks of delivery. I started walking from the 2nd day I gave a birth (for the first few days were very gentle walk) and have ketp walking up until now. I am all over in Victoria and Sidney with this bright red stroller…if you see me and my son, Ryo, please say “hello” and join us for a walk, perhaps!
