HOW I DID IT

She Picked Up Pace, Worked Off Pounds

October 05, 1998

Exercise has always been a part of my daily routine, and remained so when I became pregnant. I believe exercise made for an easier pregnancy physically and emotionally, a smoother labor and delivery, and a quicker return to my pre-pregnancy body.

It took three months for me to fit into all of my pre-pregnancy clothing. A few days after Jane was born, I carried her in a front pack and walked slowly as far as my body allowed. When my body was recovered from delivery, I gradually added jogging (with Jane in a stroller), hiking and mountain biking to my week.
