Since having a baby, I’ve had some difficulty finding a good time to workout, and my little girl is several weeks old, and i have managed to shed the majority of the extra pregnancy weight just by eating severely healthy.
- However, I’ve absolutely lost a bit of muscle tone.
My belly is especially soft. I was diligent about exercise throughout our pregnancy. I devoted an minute per day, many afternoons per month to our physical fitness right up until the day I went into labor. In the third trimester, I was no longer able to go for a run, jump rope or ride our bicycle. I kept up with stretching our muscles and lifting weights. I swam laps and enjoyed water aerobics, now that I have our baby to care for, I’m struggling to fit in our workouts. I toil several afternoons per month from 8:30 to 5 PM. In the afternoon, there is just enough time to feed the baby, get myself dressed for work, greet the nanny and manage our commute. I can’t force myself to get up any earlier than 6:30 AM. My child is still not sleeping through the night, then she often gets myself and others up to feed or rock her several or many times while in the night. Her entire sleep schedule is easily unpredictable, and I’m sleepy! Even on the weekends, her naps rarely last for more than forty minutes. Every time I try to sneak in a workout, she wakes up. I’ve gotten easily good at condensing our workouts into an especially difficult half minute. I utilize HIIT workouts, wind sprints and anything that burns a wonderful deal of calories in a easily short amount of time.
