My Fitness Journey
My fitness journey first began after my son Reed was born four years ago. I’d put on weight before my pregnancy and was on a mission to lose those extra kilos plus the baby weight I’d gained. I changed up my diet eating mostly healthy foods, started exercising more plus was running around looking after Reed and breast feeding which helped me burn those extra calories. Slowly but surely I managed to lose the weight.
But as it always does, life got busy again, I started studying full time again at uni and my healthy eating and exercise routine took a bit of back seat to everything else. I got into some bad habits and was trying to juggle everything at once, I finally said to myself- enough is enough!
So here I am, and my fitness journey starts over, but this time I’m more determined than ever. Time to change my lifestyle up and get in a routine that I can stick to once and for all.
I tried out a waist trainer for the first time, never having used one I didn’t know what to expect but I thought I’d give it a go. When I first put it on I instantly noticed how supported I felt in my lower back. I’ve had lower back pain for the past decade which was even worse during my pregnancy, so I was thrilled to feel some relief from using the waist trainer. I’ve been wearing it for a few hours every day around the house when I’m at the park with Reed. The best thing so far is that I can put it on whenever I need to which is just so so helpful when things are busy at home and uni.
I’ve started focusing on my diet by eating more healthy foods and controlling my portions so I’m not eating too much. Using the waist trainer has made this easier as well as I’m conscious of how much I eat when I wear it. I’ve also made it my goal to exercise more by spending time outside with Reed and going for regular walks.
So far, I’ve noticed a difference in my tummy which is slimmer and I’m happy with the progress I’ve made. I’m determined to continue this journey and will keep waist training, exercising and eating well.
