Baby got Back... and Butt and Belly

My friend Eryka is awesome. We have been friends since high school, and I have loved watching her develop her passion for health, fitness, and green living. And cooking!

And recently, I decided to tap into that knowledge.

After birthing 2 babies in 13 months, my core was basically obliterated. I have chronic back pain from hauling my big guy around since I have no core strength to support him. And also, it's bathing suit season (at least it is in Mississippi.)

What I'm saying is it's not pretty over here. Nor is it functional. So something had to be done.

That's where Eryka lended her awesomesauce and developed a core workout plan that actually is working for me. You can read more about what I am calling the Baby Got Back and Butt and Belly plan over here. It's a simple, gradual plan. It can be done on my floor without any equipment. It only takes a few minutes.

And most importantly, it has allowed me to start where I am. Because y'all, I am lazy and easily discouraged and just plain tired. And anything that would have required much more effort than getting down onto the floor to start would not have worked at this point in time.

But so far, it's working. I have actually noticed some improvement already.

If you are looking for a simple core workout that is gentle enough that a post-partum momma can do it but effective enough that you will see results, seriously--- try this.

Then let Eryka and I know how it's going!

And just for laughs, here's a little something:)

Hey! That's incredible that you're already seeing results! I'll be sure to follow up the post with two more weeks of ab routine for the readers.
And I love the word "Awesomesauce".

Hey momma be careful - I was told that if you have the diastasis recti, then ab exercises will cause it to split even more -
