Fitness Update


As promised, I have a little fitness update for you.

I do have some good news on the #losethebabyweight2015 front. I am down 4 pounds from my last post, which means I have 11 pounds to go to hit my goal weight! This means I have been averaging about a pound a week and I hope I can keep up this pace.

I've started to go back to my gym and have slowly gotten back into running and weight lifting. I try to get to the gym at least twice a week with a goal of 3 times per week this month. The days I can't make it to the gym, I try to fit in a YouTube Tone It Up work out when I can. 

This one being my current favorite:

I've been focusing on toning my arms and legs since my middle section is still a little tender from my c section. I tried to do some sit ups the other day and it felt like there were 50 lb weights on my stomach. I am trying to ease my way into the core toning work outs, although that is the main area I would like to tone the most. 

As far as the dieting is going, I don't have any strict regimen. Just trying to focus on eating healthy and stay under 1500 calories a day. I am still pumping/breastfeeding so I am burning about 500 calories a day just doing that (according to this website). I try to make sure I have some type of protein, veggie/fruit and light carb for each meal. I try to keep my snacking to a minimum around 100 calories.

I have also just started using the app MyFitnessPal (find me at LindsayRumple) and have a few friends that use it as well. It's great because I can keep track of all my daily calories and work outs to make sure I am staying on track with my weight loss goals.

One area I would like to work on is planning my meals in advance. This is something I struggle with constantly. I typically get in a rut of eating the same things everyday and I eventually get bored and eat bad food. I think meal prep and planning at the beginning of the week needs to start happening.

I have started a pin board with healthy recipes and work outs to try. Here are a few healthy recipes I'd like to try:

Honey Glazed Salmon

BBQ Chicken Salad

Spicy Cashew Chicken

Keilbasa and Cabbage Skillet

What are some of your favorite healthy recipes?

That's all I have for this fitness update!
I'll plan on posting another update early next month to see if I've made more progress.


  1. way to go lady!! you are doing great! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  2. Congrats on your progress girl!! I love the TIU girls videos!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  3. You're doing so well!! I've heard good things about MyFitnessPal, I'll have to join you once I get the okay to work out after baby! Before my chicken aversion I would make a bunch of plain chicken in the crock pot and shred it, then it was really easy to add to a salad or other meals throughout the week so I definitely suggest that for healthy and quick options!

  4. I'm right there with you girl! I just had my 2nd child, Jax. He is just a few weeks older than Camden. I love following along with your blog especially since our babes are so close in age!

  5. way to go gal!! 4 lbs is great progress especially when you are doing it all the right way with healthy eating and exercise!!

  6. Girl, don't sweat that extra weight too much! It's a big adjustment being a mommy! Enjoy your time with your little guy. I know when my little one was 3-4 months, I was just too exhausted to work out. Don't push yourself too much!


I love hearing your thoughts! It makes my day!
