Working On My (Postpartum) Fitness: Nov/Dec

Jan 7, 2017


Leave it to me to time beginning a new fitness regime with the start of the holiday season. I'm happy to report I successfully completed round two {round one} of Tracy Anderson's Thirty Day Method, working out 17 of the 30 days which is a vast improvement to my workout efforts of late, as well as dropping 6.2lbs and down 5 inches all over.  Survived without coffee, but after a week stopped following the meal plan religiously. 

Little by little I'm navigating why way back to a consistent fitness schedule {goal: 5-6 days a week}, making slow but steady strides to re-strengthen my core and have less than five pounds to reach my pre-pregnancy weight(!). I'm slowly letting go of the mom guilt to workout -- for me, I feel like working full time already consumes so much time I just want to be 100% present when I'm home which I know is unrealistic and I need to make space for myself, but gosh it is difficult. Baby steps.

  1. Daaaaaang. Look at you go! Meanwhile, I'm over here looking at a half marathon training schedule thinking, "Meh, I have a few more weeks to start on that." (And eats the last of the Christmas candy...)
