I apologize for the late Workout of the Week post. Yesterday, we switched hosts in preparation for a new blog design coming in November- exciting! Unfortunately when we did this, we lost the format we had previously. Unfortunately, the blog design will change again in the next couple of days and then once again in November when the awesome Heather at Mortiz Fine Designs finishes up the final design. What an exciting time for Muscles & Munchkins!
This week’s workout is a short, simple one that can be done anywhere: home, office, in between dinner prep, or even waiting for your children to get off of the bus. At just one-week postpartum, this body strength workout will be one I keep coming back to to try and improve. You can do all four rounds at once, or split them up throughout your day. Do what you can, but keep track and come back to this one and see who you improve in a few weeks.
A little update…
And for a little personal update around here. This guy was one week old yesterday! I can’t say, “I can’t believe how time flies,” this time around because I know it does. We are adjusting to life as a family of four: some moments are tough and some seem to be a breeze, but each day gets better.
As for me, 1 week postpartum and I went on my first, slow jog yesterday. I was able to get in about 2.25 miles yesterday and felt great! I also tested myself on push-ups- 16 on my toes. I know working out right after a baby isn’t for everyone, in fact, I don’t recommend it to everyone- you must know and listen to your body and to your doctor. I am fortunate that I have a doctor who trusts me and tells me, “Whenever I feel up to it,” that I may start, but to just take it one day at a time and listen to how I feel.
