Holiday dinner was great but I over ate. Lots of veggies. Lots. And a few bites too many of dessert. But I’m starting my day light with a smoothie
I have no idea when this happened. And I have no idea WHY I had no idea because my condo is like directly across from the office….but my condo association finally took out the models and put in a sufficient gym:
Given that my condo has been taken over with baby stuff and I can’t exercise let alone walk without tripping over or knocking into a pack n’ play, bouncy seat, or teething toys and rattles….all while strategically maneuvering all of our stuff we had BEFORE Ella arrived.
The cardio equipment is meh but will do.
I actually just prefer to go into the open room with hardwood floors and do my thang. My gym got rid of my stretching area where I did a lot of my body weight bosu workouts. Now everyone is on top of everyone and it’s jam packed with machines<—hate.
If they had my smith machine and Bosu at the condo I would be almost complete
I still need my gym but it changed my life to know that I can walk across the way to go workout and Michael can’t cry about me going to the gym (on nights I can’t get there during the day) and watching the baby because I will cut out travel time and be right there if needed 🙂 I can now workout more…well..if only Ella could be entertained easily and I could bring her. That would be fab.
Yesterday…I decided to walk over to the condo gym to reunite with an old friend.
^ I looooved these workouts before I was pregnant. It was my go-to aside from Body Rock when I wanted to “be trained” and not have to do the training. Tough workouts. And my abs were taken to the next level after incorporating some of these workouts into my routine.
don’t get me wrong…it’s a TOUGH workout. But I was craving something that was going to get me moving more. Something hype not zen.
So I did this one instead…
working on it with chaturanga:
Including these roll up sit up squat thingys I was doing at the gym the other day that happened to be in my DVD again yesterday.
Gotta say my favorite move ever is the banana roll. I used to master those. And a bunch of other stuff. Still can’t get over the significant loss in strength I’ve had post baby. You would think I would be even stronger…giving birth…carrying around a constantly growing baby. Nope.
My thighs are screaming today. I also noticed it’s MUCH harder to engage my abs when doing intense exercise. Something that was so easy to do before.
