It’s been a good while since I’ve put on my workout clothes and worked out. During my pregnancy I worked out two or three times. Other than that I’ve just looked after what I ate. Staying hydrated and eating healthy, moderate meals. Now that my pregnancy is over I want to start my fitness journey again.
I was a big fan of fitness centers and trained several times a week. Now that I have a baby I want to incorporate my workout routine into my stay at home mum life. Already two weeks after my delivery I felt ready to start working out gain. But all the doctors , midwifes and other mums suggested to wait at least six weeks. In the mean time you should go for long walks. So I did, but yesterday, after five weeks and one day I couldn’t wait any longer. So I browsed through my workout playlist on YouTube and did a twenty minute post natal fitness routine. This was so tough though and I could feel my body was out of shape.
Now I’m sitting on my couch struggling every time I have to get up because I’m so sore. I know tomorrow will probably be worse, but I can’t wait for my second workout. The key for me is to stay motivated and change up my workouts so that I won’t get bored and quit. After all this is a life style and not a diet.
After countless promises to myself that today, the last days in 2014, will be the right time for a change. A change for my bad eating habits after the holidays, a chance for a workout again after 3 weeks, a change to feel better, feel like my old self.
Like that ever happened.. hah. Now I’m battling with my mind if I should finish these potato chips or if I should just throw them away.It’s not like I enjoy eating junk food. I actually feel so guilty and crappy because I’ve put poison into my body. So yep, think I know the answer, they are going into the trash.
It’s time for a change, and there is no better time then tomorrow. Yup, tomorrow it will change. We still have time, 2014!
Wish me luck ♣
This is how my workout looks today. An easy workout you can do inside on the treadmill or outdoors.
The day started off with way too little sleep and a lot of back and forth cause I needed a bike. At last after being to a family friend to fix a pump then to two sport stores just to find the first one closed we finally found a bike. And not just any bike but a electronic one. It helps you to cycle Eco friendly, standard or high which is most suited for hills. If you don’t like any of these settings you just go to no assistants. It was so much fun though and when we finally were on the way the sun was shinning and I got my workout and tan all in one. My mum and I went to Hohenpeissenberg, had a good talk and something to cool us down with.
