This morning I met a 2 of my clients for coffee at Starbucks so they could see the baby! It was so nice to catch up and I know they enjoyed meeting and hanging out with Ava.
I got a pumpkin spice latte.. with skim milk. Somehow it was TOO sweet for me and I had maybe 10 sips total.
So onto the blog topic of regaining strength…. This week I really jumped back into my fitness routine. My body was ready and I was mentally ready to get back to it. With 2 Boot camp classes this week, I was super sore but it felt good. I didn’t go 100% because i didn’t want to pull a muscle or injure myself by working too hard, but I got in some great workouts.
I was surprised at the strength I had to complete the workouts considering I was only 6 weeks postpartum and hadn’t seriously worked out in a while. I took for granted how strong I was during my pregnancy and I am super thankful that I exercised my entire pregnancy.
Last night’s workout seemed so much easier compared to Tuesday night. I felt stronger with my planks and I was able to do the cardio at a little faster pace. My pushups got a little lower to the floor and my squats were a little deeper.
Although regaining strength takes time, I can already see progress and that is so motivating for me. I can’t wait to get my stomach back in shape. A strong CORE makes exercise so much easier. Bathing suit season is right around the corner and who doesn’t want to feel good in a bikini????
Today is my off day.. my body is telling me to rest and relax! I am all for it Tomorrow I will be focusing on learning the Group Power workout and I hoping Sunday will just be some walking cardio outside with the Baby and Cooper!
