Getting Fit – Good For You & Baby!

Getting Fit – Good For You & Baby!

While I was pregnant, I walked nearly every day after dinner. It was a great way for me to get exercise even as Rissa developed in the womb, making my belly expand. After having her at the end of October, it didn't take long before we were pretty much holed up in the house due to winter. Now that it's nice again, we are enjoying walks. It's not easy to get in shape after baby comes. Sure, you are busy, but it's not the same as a cardio workout. It can be difficult to schedule that kind of time in. Cryo-Cell knows that it is hard for moms to find time to exercise after baby's arrival.
