As I look at these two weeks of workouts written out, I’m realizing it doesn’t look like much of anything. But really that’s just because I’m comparing it to pre-pregnancy days, which is unfair and unreasonable to do. Honestly, I’m happy with where I’m at 2 months postpartum. Physically I’m feeling really good (though I could use about 100 extra hours of sleep).
We’ve hardly had a “normal” week around here yet since Roen was born and we’re just kind of getting to the point of finding any sort of schedule. Even the days when I don’t get a set workout in, I’m running errands, cleaning, moving all around the house, etc. so it’s not like I’m only sitting on the couch or something. I’m proud of myself for not getting wrapped up in that “get your body back” postpartum crap I see all over the media. I’m just doing my best each day to enjoy my growing baby and my new role as his momma, which is pretty darn easy to do. The movement comes in some form each day and my health is certainly still a priority for me, it’s just not an idol.

Tuesday, September 29th
15 minute Walk
5 times through, no rest:
10 tricep dips
10 alternating lunges
10 jumping jacks
(this was the first time doing a jumping move since pregnancy/childbirth – I could clearly tell my core is “soft” and not in shape for this, but I felt find doing the moves and it gave me some confidence that I can continue doing so)
Wednesday, September 30th
I was sick with a bad head cold so there was just no workout – rest was much more important
Thursday, October 1st
Friday, October 2nd
again, no set workout – that cold was still lingering and I spent all of my “free time” running errands and cleaning the apartment for company that was coming.
Saturday, October 3rd
just a bunch of walking around San Francisco
