Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie & Postpartum Workout Ideas

Postpartum exercise. Something I dread but also something that can make you feel so great about yourself. Getting back into the groove after being laid up on a couch recovering for 6+ weeks can be so tough. I wanted to provide you all with some great postpartum exercise resources that I found helpful along the way. I will also give you one of my favorite post-exercise smoothie recipes – a strawberry blueberry smoothie!

Before I introduce you to some of my favorite resources, I want to tell you a little bit about one of my favorite post workout smoothies – the power strawberry blueberry smoothie! Well, to be honest, I drink it ALL the time. Not just after workouts! It’s healthy and delicious and also has AppeFIT from the Vitamin Shoppe added in. If you don’t know what that is… I am about to tell you! 🙂

  • Join Kayla Itsines Workout Program // I joined this after baby Ellie and I have been using it for about 7 weeks. I find that it’s extremely motivating and it’s great to have someone else choosing your workout for the day. It includes resistance training and cardio training and it tells you how much to do for each day. It’s also immensely helpful to see how much you have accomplished on the calendar!
  • Postnatal Core Workout // This workout is great because it includes modifications for diastasis recti as well!
  • Workout Plan // Fit to be Pregnant and Beyond has a great postpartum diet and exercise plan that you can take a peek at here! It’s a great workout that won’t affect your milk supply, since that is always a huge concern postpartum!
  • Personal Trainer ONLINE! // You can hire a trainer online that will be able to answer all of your questions and create the perfect workout routine for you. My favorite is Fit For Birth!

    What a good looking smoothie! It looks so smooth and flavorful. I usually blend chia seeds in to the smoothie, I’ll have to try leaving them on top.
