Wendy Kravjansky recovers from two C-Sections and is back in Top Form
Being pregnant and having a C-section which meant no gym for 3 months. We also started our family off with twins so adjusting to a first-time parent was twice as hard. Now fitting in gym or even me time was extremely hard. It took almost 5 months to get back to a regular routine at the gym.
Shortly after getting back into routine and getting my body back to what it was, we were pregnant again only a year and a half after the twins. Another C-section with another 3 months recovery that was more like 6 months because the twins made it hard to recover. It was hard getting to the gym before, now it is almost impossible some days.
I began feeling non-energetic, tired, and that was no time for me. I also was losing my physique that I had worked so hard for in past years. I was losing weight, and more importantly, I was losing my hard-earned muscle tone. This was my wake-up call.
I needed to get back into pre pregnancy state. Life was definitely much easier before having children. You can pick up and go as you please, but now having 3 little one’s ages 3 years old and under was getting a bit tougher to get to the gym, let alone time for me or for my own personal goals.
As blessed as I am and happy for these beautiful little babies I have, I was feeling a bit down at times as fitness was always a part of my life.
Bodies by Design is a positive family atmosphere, where I have always felt comfortable for the past 12 year, so I made my way back to the place I knew I would be able to get back to my old self. Over the course of a year back at the gym, I got some much needed me time back as well as energy, muscle gains, stress relief, happy, positive, confident. Inspired by my children, a mom of 3 can still do it.
With my energy back, I’m able to spend more quality time with my 4-year-old twin boys and 15-month-old baby girl. I feel like I can do anything, striving to do my best and not giving up and to inspiring my kids.
I have started caring about myself again and I want to live a well-balanced lifestyle. I feel it’s even more important to have a proper balance of nutrition and exercise. The goal is to remain focus and keep on track at the gym.
My advice for anyone else that shares a story like mine; I would say don’t give up. You may not be able to do the same as before like 5 days at the gym but maybe 3 and that is better than nothing. It’s all about managing your time as adjusting to a new schedule that best fits your new life. Strive always for your best and not anyone else’s. You will feel better about yourself, inside and out.
Thank you, Bodies, By Design for creating an atmosphere where I can reach my true potential, for my children, and most of all, myself.
