Getting out of bed this morning was a struggle, but I managed to get up, pump some breast milk, shower and get dressed before the baby woke up. I am an assistant volleyball coach, so during the summer the girls come for volleyball workouts and conditioning/weights. I usually feed MNM before we go and then she sleeps the entire time we are there usually which is very nice.
Today I had the girls do a HIIT workout and for some crazy reason I decided to do it with them. Now normally this workout would be a piece of cake for me, but 9 months of being pregnant and 2 months with baby so far has made me one lazy momma. I am in the process of getting myself back and so today I though “What they heck, why not?”. This was very tiring for me but I got through it and I had an amazing burst of energy for a good 3 hours afterward.
Ladder HIIT workout :
60 seconds flutter kicks with a squat
60 seconds high knees
60 seconds burpees
60 seconds jumping jacks
1 min break
Continue with the same exercises for 50 seconds each, and then 40, 30, 20, 10 with a minute break in between. I am always dripping sweat when I get done and it is so quick and easy to do at home or anywhere since you don’t need any equipment.
Now I am going to contemplate whether or not I should go on a run later (I need to practice before my 100 miles in July!)
In the time that I’ve been gone I have had a baby, graduated college, and gotten a teaching job. Things got very busy and I lost track of my goals and such. I am now in the process of getting myself back in all aspects. Also, I am learning how to be a mommy in the process and it seems to be slowing everything down.
My MNM is 2 months old now and I am feeling much more motivated to get my body back, so here is to a new start.
Sunday we spent a few hours meal prepping for the first time. This was for Russell and I. A couple of his meals will be sandwiches so they aren’t in the picture.
It’s Thursday. We started softball back up yesterday with two a days till next Wednesday. With two practices and work outs I am pretty tired. I am excited for My rest day this week (Sunday) although I still have practice that day.
Ran 1 mile
Biked 3 miles
Leg Press 2×10
Tricep dips 2×15
Tricep extension 2×15
DB bench press 3×10,8,6
Plank with weighted row 2×16
Wall balls 2×15
Wall touch sit ups
I am excited for Sunday because I am starting meal prepping for the first time! I am excited about the time it will save at lunch and dinner everyday, and also that I can just grab it and go and still eat healthy.
I took a few months off from blogging. Oh goodness things have gotten crazy lately.
But I am back to it. I’m glad to be back!!!
