How I have NOT Lost Any Baby Belly Fat

It’s been eight months since THE BIRTH and I have gone to three spinning classes and I have done one run (aka jogging at a leisurely pace). I literally have one hour a day where I could either GYM IT or do other things like….blog, catch up on social media, whatsapp my friends, take a poo, finish…
