During my second and third trimesters I was active most days of the week either heading out to yoga, walking, swimming or doing a prenatal workout video at home. Since giving birth I have gotten out for a few walks each week but have been focusing more on healing and relaxing. Now that I am three weeks postpartum I am finally feeling ready to get back to more regular workouts. I am still starting off slow but am looking forward to getting back up and running.
- Leg Lifts
Plans for the next three weeks (continue with the above plus below):
- Yoga-at home
- Skinny Bitch workout videos- I love that they have quick 5 minute workouts that I can do fit in between nursing, diaper changes, nursing, working, nursing, playing with baby, nursing, cooking, ect.
- Increase walking times/distance- currently I am doing between 25-35 minutes and ranging between 1-1.5 miles
Plans starting in four weeks (continue above):
- Start going to postnatal yoga once per week
- Start C25K
- Add in more intense home workouts
I am looking forward to finding a balance between everything I need to do at home and workouts because workouts are important for me to get my body back in shape and for my sanity.
New moms: how do you find the balance?
