Since I gave birth to my bundle of Joy in July, it was hard to stick to a workout routine at first. I would start, but then give up after a week. I did walks with the stroller and the carrier, but then it started getting a bit too cold, so I just gave up exercising.
I always used to judge women who would let themselves go after having kids, but now I actually understand how that happens.
Let’s face it.
Motherhood is the most rewarding thing, but at the same time, it is very challenging. You have to take care of the baby, the house, your husband, and keep up with yourself. It is difficult. For a couple of months, I just decided to give up on trying to get fit again. But then I hit the point where I didn’t like looking at myself in the mirror anymore. So I decided to make a change.
I picked up my Rockin Body dvd by Shaun T ( beach body ) and have been working out 6 days a week for almost a month now.
It’s so easy to quit, and it can be difficult to exercise when you become a mom, but it’s doable! There’s nothing like feeling great about yourself.
So I encourage you all to stick to your goals mo matter how difficult they seem. I’m glad that I am going into the new year already in a regular work out routine. I feel much better, and sleep much better.
