Libby Wilson I Got My Body Back After Having Quadruplets

Libby Wilson, stay-at-home mom, Memphis, Tennessee

Pregnancy Action Plan
"I've always loved exercise. When I got the amazing news that I was pregnant with quadruplets, I vowed to be in the best shape possible for a healthy delivery."

Squeezing In a Workout
"After I had my babies, I started exercising once my doctor said I could. Before the kids wake up or when I can find time in the afternoon, I fit in Bikram yoga, Spinning, running, or strength training."

Mommy and Me
"I want my kids to see that being healthy can be fun. On Saturday mornings I bring my 3-year-old daughter into the kitchen to help make whole wheat pancakes for the family. We toss in ground flaxseed and use applesauce as a substitute for the oil."
