I am so excited to share with you that Boden has recently added a new activewear line! This was perfect timing for me as I just had my first little baby 3 weeks ago (check out instagram for pictures.) I gained 38lbs during my pregnancy, which was much more than I had wanted to gain. I was a little nervous as to how hard it would be to lose it, but the main thing I wanted to try to focus on was being healthy. And I was also very motivated to lose the weight, and honestly really missed running and hitting the gym! The day I had Leighton, I started eating paleo again. I think this has played a big part in me quickly shedding the pounds – that, breastfeeding and working out. I started working out a couple of weeks ago, and it felt great! I took it slow though and ran only a quarter of a mile and then walked the other 3/4. I also have been lifting free weights at the gym and mainly just focusing on upper body right now since I wanted to take it easy as I still recover. So far I have lost 32lbs and only have 6 more to go, woohoo!
With a new fitness goal to get in shape post-baby, it was so nice to have some new workout gear (especially since my old workout clothing is still just a little too tight.) = ) Boden sent me a workout fitted tee, cropped leggings and a zip-up hooded jacket. I love the quality of the material of each piece. They are very thick and stretchy so I feel like they really hold me in and won’t show any “dimples” here and there. Nobody wants to see that! I also love that the print comes in a dark blue – slimming! The print is fun and modern and exactly what I would want to wear to go for a run in this fall and winter. Make sure you check out Boden’s new activewear line, and as a special treat, Boden is offering 20% off all activewear items plus free shipping with code YOGA today only! What do you think about their new activewear line? How did you shed the pounds after baby?
