Finally Back in the Gym!


Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Monday marked my first day back at the gym. This is a big deal for me as I was a big time gym rat prior to being told to stop working out while I was pregnant (mid-October). I have been dying to get back to the gym, but hadn't found the time to do so at lunch time. Sometimes it was, I would rather see my babies than hit the gym. Other times it was, Sutton got pink eye and this momma had to make her time up which meant short lunches and no gym time. I know....all excuses.

But I am back and it feels good. I am taking it really easy as I have a lot of catching up to do. But I am really looking forward to the day when I can go running again. Then I can compete in Reno Tahoe Odyssey and Tough Mudder (next year). In the meantime, its light weights and elliptical for this momma. Now I just need to buy some new cute gym clothes (all are stretched out from pregnancy) and get back at it. Though I did buy some new ear buds (mine broke around September). Baby steps.

Anyone out there have some workouts that are lighter and can help put my abs back together? They separated a bit from pregnancy.

Also, I tried fruit bars from Trader Joes on recommendation from someone at Trader Joes and I am in love. Have you tried these? What is your favorite flavor? I love coconut so these are right up my alley. But I do wish they had strawberry and coconut or mango and coconut.

    1. It really does, but I am super sore today. Went hard yesterday on weights.

  2. Oh I remember the pain of doing a sit-up after a c-section! My advice is consistency. I don't think it matters so much which workout you do as long as you do it a few times a week.

    1. I would agree. I went to the gym twice this week and hopefully three times next week. I was pretty sore yesterday from arms and chest workout, but it felt amazing.
