I’m no personal trainer or fitness guru, but I’m one to vow that working out enables you to feel so much more energised, refreshed and confident. I never worked out prior to having my LO and I can honestly say I never had the intention of ever doing so until – well until I looked down at the scale.
I get it we have a 24/7 job , whether it’s being a mother or wife, it takes a lot of energy and time. The key to achieving a successful workout is routine.. For example what works for me is in the evenings for two days of the week.. My LO is in bed by 8pm no later leaving me a 1 hour break before hubby gets home. First half an hour consists of tidying up, placing a load of clothes in the wash and emptying my LO’s backpack.. Then it’s running shoes on, yoga mat out, earphones in and I begin !
Start by taking baby steps.. You may only do a mini workout maybe in the mornings ? Just for 10 minutes.. Start by doing 10 squats in front the mirror (YouTube is a great tool to learn how to do it correctly) , and then ten before bed.. Lay down on your carpet with your legs up, and try to touch your toes.. Try doing it 10 times (killer exercise but so effective to tone your tummy).. Try planking ! I promise you I couldn’t do it for longer than 15 seconds when I first tried, (YouTube for correct posture and breathing) .. You will notice, gradually day by day your body will push for more automatically, you’ll jump from 10 to 30 squats a day, from a 20 second to a two minute plank. You’ll feel much better if you take before and after shots.. Especially with squats, you’ll notice a difference within a couple of weeks and this will surely keep you motivated !
I’m one to raise my hand and say that I’ve given every excuse in the world.. But if you want it that bad you’ll make it happen no matter what… Your goal isn’t to be a body builder, your goal is to be fit and healthy 😊 And one hell of a sexy mama ! 💃
