Making Exercise a Routine....again

Ever since I gave birth to Sophie in December, it has been incredibly challenging to get back into a regular exercise routine. I have worked out at home, but I have not gone for an actual run yet.

Yesterday, I put on my workout clothes and laced up my running shoes and went for a run. My goal was to complete two miles. I am very out of shape and had to alternate between running and walking. I was so excited that I did not pass out or give up.

It was hard and I am very sore, but it was worth it!!

I anticipate that it will continue to be challenging to make time for myself and exercise. I know that in the end, this will all be worth it!!

Here's a fun before and after picture below...

I will not be able to go for a run everyday. So on the days when Jon's gone, I will workout at home by using my exercise videos. I do not have very many exercise DVDs so I am currently rotating through "Jillian Michaels - 30 Day Shred", "Weight Watchers: Punch!", and ":08 min. Abs".

Anyone else struggling to get back into a good exercise routine? What is your favorite exercise routine right now?

Great before and after pics! I usually feel the opposite though so not excited to start but I feel great about it afterwards. I am slowly getting back into my own routine. LO2 wakes up at 5:30 so there is not much else I can do but go for a run. It's been hard but I'm getting better everyday! Good luck!

Way to go. I do 95% of my workouts in my living room, it can be a challenge but so worth it. If you're like me and need a lot of variety (cause I get so bored when working out, and then get lazy and don't try as hard) there are some awesome ones for FREE on youtube. My favorites are: Fitnessblender, JessicaSmithtv, and Lauren Fritz (lauren fritz is hip hop dancing, super fun even though I'm sure if people looked in my window they would find me looking crazy). Lots of variety and super fun to keep you going. Way to get back into it!
