ann go lean
3 months after giving birth to my daughter. During those 3 months, I could not exercise, I was depressed (which continued on til the following year), and unhappy with my body. Exercise was not an excuse in this case. From the week after I had given birth, I got an infection on my c-section scar. I had two different holes leaking fluid from my csection incision, for three months. I could not take a full shower since I was all bandaged up around my stomach area. I always had to saran wrap myself or find a different way to cover up the area when I did take a shower. Not taking a nice shower was the worst! There were many things I could not do as well, like fully take care of my daughter. I had to rely on many people, especially my husband to help care for her (and me of course!). I was at the nurses' station everyday for 3 MONTHS getting cleaned up, packed, and bandaged. After getting healed, I was too scared to move and exercise for the fear of something popping open again. Finally in July of 2013, I started my journey in becoming a fit mama!
