If you're anything like me you want to get in shape but don't have the time, energy, resources, et cetera, et cetera. These are nothing but excuses! If you "like" us on Facebook you may have noticed that I've even been procrastinating this review because it actually requires me to work out!
Lean Mommy is written by Lisa Druxman, the founder of Stroller Strides. The Lean Mommy program is a combination of L.E.A.N. (a program Lisa created before getting pregnant that stands for Learn Eating Awareness and Nutrition) and the Stroller Strides program. It's a new (or not so new) mom's guide to working out with your baby and without a gym or any equipment other than your stroller, exercise tubing and a baby carrier.
However Lean Mommy is about more than just getting in physical shape. It's a full mind and body rehab to help you beat all the postpartum issues. The "What You Eat/How You Eat" section is tailored to give you more energy and help combat mood swings. There are also "Mommy Meditations" throughout the book to help you relax and de-stress. The main goal of the program is to become happy, healthy and comfortable with your body during the weight-loss process.
I just started the Lean Mommy program a couple weeks ago and also started attending Stroller Strides classes. The exercises in the book are the same as what's done in the classes so while you don't have to attend classes to follow the program it gives me a sense of accountablility. Which is exactly what I was missing when I was procrastinating starting the program. It's impossible to fully review a program like this after just a couple weeks but so far I'm loving it! I can't wait to be a Lean Mommy!
