When I was finally cleared by my doctor, I started working out again. I had a pretty good routine going while I was home on maternity leave. Even the first month or so back at work, I would be fairly consistent on working out. Eventually, my healthy self and my tired momma self got into it. My healthy self knew that waking up a little early to workout was good for me, while my tired momma self thought that a little extra sleep was what I needed.
My tired momma self won!
As the days in April came and went without me being able to mark a completed workout on my calendar, I knew I needed to do something about it. I knew that I had to take care of myself before I could truly be able to take care of DD and DH. How was I going to find the motivation though?
As the end of April approached, I told myself that I would start again on a workout routine in May. So imagine my surprise and delight when I learned that this month’s habit was Moving in May. I’ve created myself a workout plan for May, and I haven’t missed a day yet. I had to realize that exercising didn’t have to be p******.
I could do a little in the morning, some after work, and some more after DD went to sleep. The one thing I always do after work though is pushups. I lay my DD on the floor under me…every time I reach the bottom of the pushup, I’m rewarded with a kiss. My DD also loves when I do my squats with her in the baby carrier. Who knew that pushups and squats were so enjoyable!
Happily Moving in May,
Fly(Momma with a)Baby
