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?
