|Ready to workout!|
But the workouts have changed. I don't generally even try for an hour long workout because I probably wouldn't get it done before Parker needed something. So my goal is to have short workouts as many times in the week as possible. For some people this maybe wouldn't be enough, but for me, anything is better than nothing.
|Just for fun, the same outfit when I was 28 weeks pregnant|
Some of the workouts that I do are:
- 30 day shred
- 30-40 minutes on the spin bike
- yoga - either at home or a local class
- Tabata workouts - I like this because it's done in 4 minute increments, so if I suddenly need to tend to Parker and I've only done 6 Tabatas, I still feel like I've gotten a complete workout done
- Mutu System - Mutu is a program that I purchased before I had Parker. It is a system to combat diastasis recti, which is when your abs separate during pregnancy. I was told at 18 weeks pregnant that I had 3 finger widths separation already, which then stressed me out for the rest of my pregnancy. Apparently regular crunches with diastasis recti do more harm than good and so the system gives you a food and exercise program to follow to help bring your abs back together. So then I had Parker and checked and my separation is one finger, which is basically nothing.... So all this to say, I use the exercises because they are good short workouts, but I'm not super committed to the entire system.
Speaking of which, Parker is napping so it's workout time!
