    Running and Breastfeeding: Breastfeeding Facts

    Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, midwife or nurse. The information expressed in the series “Running and Breastfeeding – By JBRobinBog.com” should not be taken as medical advice. Please consult your doctor before running during postpartum. I’ve stopped using the term “Breast is best” and now rather refer to “ Fed is best” The reason for this is because I am grateful to be able to breastfeed my Baby as there are mothers out there that don’t have the opportunity to do the same for whatever reason. It can turn out to be a big disappointment for a mother when she is not able to breastfeed.

    Buying a Bikini 

    So we arrived at our holiday destination this year, and I must say, I’ve been working hard and running and skipping on eating and drinking somethings so that I would feel happy and impressed with my body by the time I have to go onto the beach. I’m not where I want to be yet, but I am impressed with the results. Looking back I do wish I worked a little harder with regards to toning. I’m a little more flabby than I would like to be,  and alas I don’t have my six pack that I wanted – but I’m pretty dam close. We went for a walk on the…
