Fit Mom Progress Photos (Weeks 1-4)

If you told me a few months ago that I would be working out six days a week, I would have laughed out loud. But, here I am! Going strong on Kayla Itsine's Bikini Body Guide and already seeing noticeable changes!

Here are my progress photos so far. I completely forgot to take my measurements the first week, and the last time I checked my weight was at the doctor. I don't own a scale and I am basing my fitness off of how I feel and look. Even though I don't have the exact marking to tell how much has in fact been lost, I know I have lost at least half an inch off of my belly. It is flatter and the wrinkling and cellulite-looking junk are beginning to melt away.

I would like to add that these photos have made me notice how crooked my shoulders are. I swear I am not leaning to the side. I am just a gimp—my left leg is about half an inch shorter than my right. Are there ways to fix my posture? I feel really awkward when I stand with my shoulders even. Anyway...


These back photos are my favorite for noticing significant changes. (Although, sorry for the colossal wedgie! Ha!) My hips are slimmer and my quads and hamstrings are getting nice and tight. The cellulite on my thighs is decreasing. (Hooray!) Also, my back and arms are toning up and shedding the excess flab and skin.



To take us on out, the side shot! I am not sucking in for these photos, so my belly still sticks out a little, but it is definitely smaller. Also, my hamstrings, butt and triceps are getting more muscle tone.

Overall, I feel amazing. I've had a lot of people ask me if this program is worth it, and I 100% say yes to that. I cannot stand the gym and love the convenience of being able to roll out my yoga mat and do the circuits in 30 minutes. There have been a few days where I thought to myself, I'm tired, I will just do it tomorrow! But that is the path to losing the motivation for working out, and I am so happy I have pushed myself every day.

As for the diet and eating side of things, I am loosely counting my calories and following the basic guidelines of portion control, eating lots of fruits, veggies and whole grains, drinking the recommended 64 oz of water per day, and cutting out excessive sugar in my diet. Here are some simple and healthy meals I have been eating, and here are some yummy detox water recipes!

I am feeling good, and encourage you to start your own fitness journey. Like I said, if I can do it, YOU can do it! Cheers to being healthy and strong!

I have heard great things about this program. I am definitely going to check it out once I give birth. Thanks for sharing!

Congrats on keeping this up! It's incredible to see how much your body has changed in such short time (though I'm sure it didn't feel short).

You look great! It's amazing how much change you can make in just a few weeks. And it's always nice when you can feel the changes in your clothes/the mirror too! Keep up the awesome work!

Keep on going sister! You are so brave posting pictures of yourself online!!! I don't know if I would be able to do that... But you know this is so encouraging especially going through my second pregnancy. I'm looking forward to loosing all my baby weight and getting back some muscle tone

Happy Medley

I follow her on instagram and the before and afters are so inspiring! You look great! How does it work...is it a DVD you follow along with?

You look AMAZING!!!! These progress shots are always so much better for me, and more realistic x

you look great!! i have been looking at this program (the insta before/afters are hard to dismiss!) do you find it hard to do the exercises without a video prompt? i am wary to buy it wondering if reading them off a paper will be enough for me!

It is wonderful! Best of luck with your pregnancy and birth! xo

Thanks, Natalie! It has actually gone by pretty quickly, and I am so excited to see the change in another few weeks!

 
At May 6, 2015 at 7:49 PM , Blogger Abbey Rodriguez said...

Yes, that is the best part when those changes come. Thanks for the support! xo

 
At May 6, 2015 at 7:50 PM , Blogger Abbey Rodriguez said...

Exactly. Even if I weren't losing any weight, I would still do it for how much more balanced I feel. Emotionally, mentally, physically... it impacts all of it! xo

Thanks, Kerry! :)

Haha, it was a little intimidating, but I am a fan of transparency and showing how it really is. Hopefully it is an inspiration for other moms! I am excited for you to have the new baby and get fit, too! xo

The transformations were the thing that made me bite the bullet! They are INSANE. It is just a PDF of exercises you do each week, but she writes out exactly what you do every single day. You can print it out and get it bound in a book or just pull it up on your phone or tablet. Super user-friendly :)

Thanks, Caley-Jade! It's nice being able to see the changes even when I feel like there aren't any. :)

Thanks! Yes, those before and afters are a game changer for sure. And no, I actually like it being in a written form. I just pull them up on my iPad, sit it next to my mat, and blast my music. It's actually really fun, which I NEVER thought I'd say about working out. I totally recommend it! xo
