For almost six weeks, I counted down the days until I was able to start working out. As soon as the day arrived and my alarm went off at 5am, I immediately regretted setting it. I did make it to the gym but after being up with our 2 month old Mia a couple times that night, I quickly realized that this wasn’t going to work. First and foremost, I think it’s important to get adequate rest. If you aren’t getting enough sleep, your body won’t function properly and you won’t get the most out of your workout anyway.
I think being realistic and setting small goals is what is going to work for me. My plan is to workout at the gym when I feel up to it and that doesn’t mean not being able to burn calories. As you can see from the pictures, I’m dancing around the porch with my little babe which is still exercise in my books! We play follow the leader and when the weather permits, I’m chasing her around on the playground. I don’t want to feel bad about not feeling up to working out while I continue to recover from my pregnancy and sleepless nights -and you shouldn’t either! Baby steps everyone!! 🙂
