My Post Partum Fitness Journey Week 4

It’s a funny mental game when you think about getting your “pre-baby” body back. I mean, I already had a baby so I’ve technically already been rockin a mom bod right? Sure, sure it’s been almost a decade, but as I’ve aged (and become oh-so wise in the process) I’ve realized it’s more about feeling a good and taking care of your body because you love it, not because you hate it.

Say that again.


So I’m really just working on my new, post two-baby body to see what it can accomplish for me in this life. Not getting back to where I was, but seeing and accepting what the new me will unfold. This last week baby girl hit a growth spurt so we spent a lot of sleepless nights and days together. You know how when you get over-tired you just mindlessly snack and crave carbs and junk almost like a hangover? That was me. I think it’s your body’s way of saying hey, bazinga, give me something that’ll keep me going. With the patience of a toddler it wants something that’s a quick fix instead of a long lasting energy boost. So the lack of good nutrition on top of little sleep I was feeling pretty sluggish.

That will be the hardest part for me getting back to workouts is the lack of energy. Until babe and I can start sleeping more at night, it’ll be difficult to wake up in the morning ready to break a sweat. So we will see how these next two weeks go in the sleep routine department before trying to figure out a workout schedule. My best bet might just be to get it in at some point in the day when I can, it’ll just be up to me to make sure that happens.

My first workout program I’ll be doing (starting March 3rd) is called T-30, a 30 minute, 30 day boot camp style workout with added in run training 3x per week as well. I’ll need to start out modified of course, but I’m excited to have a program that I can grow and improve with.

That’s all for now.

Can’t believe baby girl is 1 month old!

Where does the time go?!

Crying a little bit today.
