Nine kids and four , living and learning all the time
Wife to Phil, Mom to Saoirse (3/09), and Niamh (1/12) .
i've tried to walk with the girls but the weather has not been very cooperative around here however it is taking a turn for the better and we've been out a couple of times now. dh was out of the country for the past 2 weeks so it was difficult to do much other than get out for walks but now i'm looking to get back into shape. the summer ultimate frisbee season is just around the corner :and i can't wait to play !!!!
When I was pregnant I would have dreams about exercising, riding a bike, running really fast. I had one about taking off and running with abandon last night. Ah, can't wait until I am at that point.
I have been advised to take it easy for at least 6 weeks before really returning to exercise, although I have been doing some yoga and workouts on my birth ball. I also went hiking a few times.
Maybe an exercise support group would help everyone. I have 50 pounds to loose and a lot of body fat...I lost so much muscle during my pregnancy.
When I can I plan to do pilates, yoga, and bike riding for cardio. I would love to get back to my gym, but I have moved away from it and I doubt I could do it with breastfeeding the baby and all.
