Hold your breath people – I’m posting a workout today. Â I know it’s been like a year since I have posted such, but here we are.
The truth is since Aiden was born, I haven’t worked out as much as I would have liked. Â I have run a little bit in the past year, walked a ton and then battled some postpartum body pain and haven’t felt like pushing myself ultra hard until now! Â I feel like I’m on the upswing and ready to make a comeback. Â I definitely haven’t lifted weights with any consistency since before I was pregnant (which is embarrassing to admit). Â I feel much more soft and jiggly than I’m comfortable with, so here we go!
I love modeling the Fight Club workout for the upper body.
This will get your shoulders, chest, biceps and triceps burning.
I’ve been incorporating a variety of exercise in my life lately and it feels good. Â I am craving that endorphin high again, which was my therapy for at least the past 10 years. Â I have started walking/jogging interval training, cycle classes, elliptical workouts, lifting weights and doing core workouts consistently. Â Unfortunately, when I started running again, now my IT band is acting up, so hopefully that doesn’t last too long with stretching and foam rolling.
For my birthday, I also got the T25 workout program, which I am pumped about!!
I did the Insanity program two different times a couple years ago and I loved the results. Â You can read about my results here, here, and here. Â I’m excited to be able to fit these intense workouts in during nap time or even when Aiden is playing by himself. Â I think he’ll like watching me actually (maybe wishful thinking?). Â I’ll keep ya updated on how I like this one too!
I want to build up my strength with this program for a couple of weeks and then try running again and hopefully it’ll feel good. Â I would love to train for a 1/2 marathon this summer. Â I miss running oh so much!
What are you doing for exercise lately?
Have you tried a home workout program that you liked?
Aren’t injuries annoying?!
