Because all of you are new to my blog, I’d like to share a few words about two wonderful programs for which I am proud to be an affiliate.
Several years ago, a Health & Nutrition Coach named Michelle Moss developed two fantastic exercise and food programs designed specifically for pregnant women and new (or not so new) moms who desire to lose the baby weight and/or keep off extra weight when pregnant. Because of these ventures, she is now the leading online expert in post-pregnancy fitness!
Her programs, Pregnancy Without Pounds and Mommy Without Pounds, are designed to be lifestyle changes, not diets. They include specific information tailored to each woman’s body type, exercise level, and stage of pregnancy or post-pregnancy. Also included are specific exercise plans, several charts and graphs for use with the program, and meal plans designed for pregnant and post-pregnant moms. Plus, Michelle doesn’t leave you alone to figure out the proper way to perform her exercises–detailed photos give directions for the strength-training and stretching portions of the program.
To me, the greatest part of this program is that you don’t even have to go to a gym–all of the toning and strength training can be done at home with an exercise ball, a few free weights (or soup cans) and a mat, and the cardio portion can be accomplished in a number of ways, even if you don’t have a treadmill. Her products are available both in e-book format and CD format. A very affordable alternative to a gym membership!
You can visit her websites here and here (but don’t order until you read the rest of my post!) to learn more about Mommy Without Pounds and Pregnancy Without Pounds. Several other products are available as well, including Core Secrets and a special line of pre-natal vitamins. You can also sign up for FREE tips via e-mail, but that’s only a small sampling of what’s in her books! From time to time she also has special sales on her products, which she advertises through her free e-mails. Twice a year, she will e-mail you free 30 day Mommy or Pregnancy challenges, with a personal training program you can use along with the books. And best of all, there is a 30 day money back guarantee!
I have used both of these programs and they are sensational! Here is a before and after photo of myself (I’m being really brave here!) using the Mommy Without Pounds program with my first child. Please, do not look too closely at the first picture. I didn’t discover this product until AFTER I was pregnant with my son. :)
Here’s the “what’s in it for me” statement: If and when you decide you’d like to order her awesome e-book or CD (and believe me, it’s worth it!), come back to my blog and click on the icon for your chosen product either on the right column of my blog or the bottom of the page, which will take you to the purchasing site of all the products. For this, I will receive a portion of the sale. This bonus helps me continue to be a stay-at-home-mom to my two awesome kids!
If you’ve got questions, feel free to ask me or visit Michelle’s websites! But don’t forget to return to my blog and click on my affiliate link before ordering! Have a blessed day.
