Weekly Fitness Check In

I survived.  The first week back to work I managed to only cry on Monday from leaving my kiddos and heading back into my normal routine.  I was successful with pumping enough milk for the next day.  I was successful with being ready to get out the door on time.  I was successful with eating much healthier than I had been in the weeks prior.  Most importantly, I was successful with only pulling out the bank card to purchase gas.  My bank account is going to love me going back to work!

Now, the one goal I was not successful with was the work outs.  I was able to get two days of workouts in and they were only about 22 minutes long.  I had said I wanted to get 3- 30 minute workouts in during the week.  I am still just trying to come up with a schedule that allows that time to sweat it up.  It would be a lot easier if the toddler would go to sleep right when we put her to bed, but alas she takes about 2 hours to finally shut her eyes.  She must really think we party it up after she goes to bed because she fights sleep really well.

The workouts that I was able to complete were based on a fellow mommy’s recommendation.  The Nike+ Training App is perfect for a mom with a newborn.  I was able to chose a workout based on my current fitness and skill level or if I wanted to use weights or bands.  I completed two body weight only training sessions that were under 22 minutes.  But, being a mom with a newborn I had to pause during a few reps to comfort the babe and not interfere with the workout.  I just jumped right back into the reps I was working on before the cute interruption.

This weeks goals: work out 4 days this week.  I am not going to add a time element to this week because I just want to start to develop a routine.  Continue working on healthy eating habits and cutting back on sugar.  What are your goals this week?  If you’ve tried the Nike+ Training app, what is your favorite workout?

Be confident, be fit, be you!
