So you’ve just had a baby – congratulations! While the new bundle of joy is certainly something to celebrate and enjoy, the bump caused by the little one’s growth is still sitting there. So why do all those Hollywood celebs suddenly reappear as their old size 2? The fact is that those women have an arsenal of tips, tricks and professionals watching their every move and preparing every piece of their diet. They have the time and job necessity to hit the gym for hours at a time, and they have the staff to watch the infant while they are running the treadmill. But the very basis of their postpartum lives, under all the glitz and glam, is as common as the rest of us who watch them – and is perfectly achievable for any woman with a baby on their hip. Adapting a healthy, nourishing diet and moving a little more can even be done with your newborn, which is a great way to give them the “ground-up” love of being healthy. The harder part will be remembering to take time away from it all for you – but it won’t be as hard as their first day of school will be!
