Postpartum, I wanted nothing more than to lose the baby weight I gained since my new body was a horrible reminder of our tragedy (see post). I aggressively started taking SoulCycle classes just two weeks after I gave birth in hopes it will help me get back to my normal weight and it did, however, I learned that cardio like spinning and running only allows your body to burn calories during the exercise where as strength training on the other hand, keeps your body burning calories at a higher rate for hours post exercise. I spoke with my personal trainer and CEO of M.O.V.E FIT NJ, Jarrett Hahn for the 411.
The more I learn about nutrition and health, the more excited I am to be able to share it with you! I just finished my first quarter at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and was so happy to start off my second quarter with a lecture from NYC Nutritionist, Keri Glassman. Her eight pillars of a nutritious life are beyond empowering and I hope you find them helpful, too.
