I have spoken a few times about my pregnancy weight and post pregnancy body. I didn’t add on too much weight whilst pregnant with my twins, but I wanted to get rid of the extra pounds. It was not difficult to lose the weight. It just fell off after some months but I needed to tone my body back to shape, especially my tummy. A question I always asked myself is “how many pushups should I be able to do?”

I needed to get my body back into shape quick and I was not sure how to go about it.

The toning bit was hard and it took ages. I tried all sorts to get my tummy and body back to what it was pre pregnancy. It is not quite where it used to be but it is almost there. I feel I can (kind of) say I got my pre pregnancy body back. You never really get your body back after having a baby. It is one of those things that I don’t see ever really get back to normal. Not the inside or the outside. Bringing life to the world takes a lot out of us mothers, whether we see it or not. Forget the good jokes about how easy celebrities snap back into their pre baby body, with their abs and all weeks after delivery, that is not the reality for majority of us.

So how did I do it? Here are some changes I made in the pursuit of my pre pregnancy body.

I must confess, this was easily done with twins. I had no choice but to stay active. Being alone with the twins for majority of the day meant I had to be up and about, which left me feeling drained but helped to drop the extra pounds. Fitness workout videos on YouTube was my friend. All I had to do was pop a sports bra and some shorts and trainers, and I was ready to exercise from the comfort of my home.
