Chasing My Fit: Balancing Act

20131116-085954.jpgChasing fitness postpartum is not by any means easy. Being a nursing mom, I have to watch that my calories do not fall below a certain point BUT being a woman trying to get back on the road to finding my fit I need to watch that I don't go above a certain point either. It's been a serious balancing act. I am happy to report though...I have not moved much in weight BUT I'm down 2% body fat in 4 weeks!
