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!
