Today is such an exciting day! Not only is it the day after New Years (so we’ve all shaken that slow post-champagne feeling), but I feel like it’s the day when many of us really start to take action towards our New Years goals. Whether you’re purging and cleaning the house, setting up a new healthy eating strategy, or brainstorming goals for work, I feel like it’s such a fresh and exciting time.
Aaaaand to help with your fitness and healthy eating goals, I have a few amazing things on the way: the revamped 12-week post baby bod plan, the post baby bod ADVANCED plan, and our first exclusive online accountability group (for PBB friends + fitness friends who may or may not have had kiddos. Everyone is invited to join the online accountability party!)
First, let’s talk about PBB. This is the same effective and safe 12-week postpartum fitness plan, but we tweaked it to make it easier to navigate (each day is one page, with photos of many of the moves + meal ideas on that same page), and also included the meal ideas and recipes from the bonus meal plan.
Each module includes one full week of sample meals, plus bonus recipes and a full exercise glossary with form cues. It includes tips on pelvic floor healing, safe core exercises, and what you should and should not do post-baby. This is the same plan that has helped hundreds of women all over the world get back in shape safely after baby. On these pages you will not find info about getting back to your “pre-baby” anything. Post baby bod can be SO MUCH BETTER. You can be leaner, stronger, more fit, and feel amazing after baby (or babies!).
My 9-month progress:
If you purchase the original plan, you will be getting updated original plan + the PBB Advanced plan for FREE when it launches on the 16th. If you’re just interested in the advanced plan, you can pre-order here for $39 (price goes up to $49 on the 10th). Already purchased the original plan? I’m hooking you up. Both versions will appear in your inbox on the 16th.
Here’s what the PBB ADVANCED plan is all about:
-It’s 12 weeks of workouts for mamas who have already built back their fitness levels and want to kick things up to the next level. (So if you recently gave birth and were cleared to resume exercise, do the original plan, then when you feel strong and back in the game, head into the advanced plan.)
– Core SAFE exercises mixed with intense strength training and cardio.
– Nutrition Focus: I also included the same type of carb cycling plan that I like to follow. No math projects involved, and it simplifies carb cycling so you can fuel yourself to match your goals. (<– Approved by Registered Dietitian Kim McDevitt.
The difference between the advanced and original plans:
-The original plan is all about building back your strength and cardio endurance the smart way. This is not a crazy “balls to the wall” plan, but it’s not a “gently whisper to your body” plan that I found to be very common. This is designed to create habits, get back into a solid fitness routine, and do it in a way that facilitates healing. The core and cardio moves were all strategically-designed, and progress according to what’s safe following each stage of birth.
-The original plan contains a thorough exercise glossary and tips of form cues, plus lots of info on pelvic floor healing and safe core work.
-The advanced plan is for those who already built back their fitness levels after baby (like original PBB plan graduates), and want to take it to the next level. It includes an entire carb cycling component with bonus meal suggestions and recipe ideas, plus how to carb cycle in your own routine. It does include tips for smart core work and healing, but more limited photos of each exercise. (If you’re working on the advanced version, you already know how to do a biceps curl, etc.) The advanced plan is intense, and geared to encourage awesome results.
Now, let’s talk about motivation:
Our online accountability group! This is for those who are working on the post baby bod and advanced plans, but also those who are just looking for support and motivation with their goals.
DAILY SUPPORT: Each day I’ll pop into the group to answer questions and will be available for email support. This accountability group is JUST for PBB participants and those who want an extra push of a certified personal trainer. If you need an accountability source, want to ask specific questions or need modifications, this is for you. I’ll also be doing LIVE video to answer your questions! Sign up here.
This is perfect for those who:
-are lacking consistency and motivation with their workouts. I can look at your plan, see what you’re doing, and adjust or tweak anything that’s not working in your favor.
-are trying to find the right balance and routine. This is perfect for those who are trying to figure out how to add interval and strength training into their schedule without overdoing it.
-are in a rut. If you’re looking for something different or someone to cheer you on, this is it.
Why are we waiting to start until the 16th? Many of you have specific New Years’ health and fitness goals. You can get started, and by the 16th, you’ll know what is and isn’t working, and where you can use some extra help and guidance. Instead of hitting the mid-month slump, this can help power you through any potential ruts or obstacles.
I’m SO excited about this group as a way to offer some virtual training tips and motivation. I’ve never offered online training services through the blog, so this is pretty special. For less than the cost of 2 personal training sessions, you have access to one for 4 weeks. Sign up here! Spots are limited.
This is where I throw a bunch of confetti in the air, followed by celebration burpees.
Please let me know if you have any questions about any of these, and thank you so much to those of you who have already joined in. Thank you also for helping me spread the word about these plans I worked so hard to create, and for being here, and for being so awesome. I’m lucky to *know* you all.
Happy New Year and I’ll see you soon!
