Ok, so I know that some of you mamas live on farms and have probably been very active from relatively early on. But what about dedicated exercise for the sake of exercising? What are you all doing? I'm just 6 weeks now, and feeling twitchy to get moving again! At the same time, recovery has been much rougher this time around and with the mild prolapse issues that I've been having, I don't want to overdo it and find myself back at square one, unable to exercise. Luckily I'm not having any prolapse symptoms and my cervix feels relatively high. So part of me wants to jump right back into my #1 go-to activity which is running. It's taking everything I have to hold myself back!
My plan for this week is to start doing the Hab-it video at least 3 times (pelvic floor exercises, does that count? it's a 20 minute block that I'll have to dedicate to "exercises" so I count it!) I'm also planning to check out a Mommy and Me yoga class on Wednesday afternoon. I'm not sure how much of a workout it's going to be, but the yoga studio is half a mile away and I'll be walking there and back with an almost 14 lb (!!) baby tied to me.
I think that long walks wearing baby should probably be my first step back into activity. I've been fairly inactive over the past 6 weeks, so easing into it seems wise. But I really really just wanna lace up my trainers and go for a run. Sigh.
So how about the rest of you? What are you all doing for exercise?
