I began going to the gym a 2-3 times a week starting in January 2015 and continued to do so throughout the year. I would say that 2015 was a gentle ease into a lifestyle of routine fitness.
In 2016, I had decided that I really wanted to put more effort into my workouts and focus on toning and losing about 10 lbs. As I was getting older, eating just about what I wished and however much of it I wante; my metabolism had begun to slow. I had hit 132 lbs and that had (at that time) been my highest lifetime weight. So, in January 2016, I really dedicated myself to working out 3-5 times per week (an average of 4 times a week) and began to lose the weight by incorporating cardio and weight lifting. By May of 2016, I had lost 15 lbs, enhanced the 4 pack I had previously had and felt a lot stronger. I was happy with my results at 117 lbs, felt great in my body and was healthy.
Long behold, in June 2016 I found out I was pregnant and due March 1, 2017.
