I have not done a good job blogging my activities each week like I promised. I set out with the ambitious goal of blogging twice a week. This soon dropped to once a week, and then I skipped two weeks. But, I have kept on working out, and I realize that this blog is not about being perfect. It’s not about always exercising every day or making the perfect dessert or having the most Pinterest-worthy photographs. It’s about real life. So, real life happens! Your 7 month old discovers scooting, which soon evolves into crawling, and then progresses to trying to climb stuff! You just thought you had your home baby-proofed! You soon realize that your little smarty pants has a dangerous item detector, and whatever she should not play with she goes after! At least all this happens at MY house. Also spring colds or as we like to call them “allergies” strike. Someone has been sick in my house for the last two weeks which really puts blogging on the back burner. Needless to say, I have been chasing my little Haddie all over the apartment, so by the time she is napping, I feel like I have already worked out. But, I did fit in a little bit of a work out the last two weeks. And I do feel that my poor, postpartum abs are stronger despite my failings at consistency.
Monday: I actually did the Wake-up Workout in the morning yay!! And I did the Plank Challenge.
Tuesday: How to Rebuild Your Core Post-Pregnancy, and The Best Butt Workout, (which works your abs, and arms a little bit as well)
Wednesday: All I had time for was a quick Wake-Up Workout in the morning, before dashing off to do errands.
Thursday: Was one of those days that I was so tired I didn’t exercise.
Friday: I went to a Fiesta event with some friends and did a lot of walking, so I will count that. ( I probably ate enough Mexican food to counteract the exercise, though.)
Saturday: I went walking along my in-laws’ neighborhood
Sunday: We did even more walking to get bluebonnet pictures
( I count every little bit I can get as exercise)
I pretty much dropped the ball. I did not exercise at all Monday or Tuesday.
But on Wednesday I really pushed it and did a long exercise routine. I warmed up with the Wake-Up Workout, and then I moved on to the No Crunch Ab Workout, and finished with the Best Butt Workout.
Thursday: I did Yoga Buddies with Haddie because, well let’s face it, naps are sometimes prime time to get something else done (like nap), and she is crawling, so I needed to occupy her.
Friday, unless you want to count massive house-cleaning and sewing projects, I did not work out, but I did break a sweat, and my closet flooded so I had to do heavy lifting.
Saturday: I did more Fiesta walking and visited Market Square in downtown San Antonio.
It’s been a wonderful 30 days and I’m hoping to keep up with exercising daily throughout the summer. Check out my pinterest Fitness Challenge board and see what new exercises I pin this summer.
