Take Time for You Mom
I am a mom of a 12 year and 9 month old. I understand how it feels to have a baby at 26 and 37! I also understand how easy it is to make having a baby an excuse not to exercise. Sure you're sleep and energy deprived. Your breastfeeding baby is taking all of your body's nutrients. Your extra pregnancy fat is unmotivating. Your body has seemed to lose all ability to exercise. Your baby needs you so you don't have time to exercise. All of these are valid complaints, but not excuses! I have dealt with all of these myself, but with support from my husband, I started corrective exercise 4 days after my baby was born, even after having a c-section. And just because I am a personal trainer doesn't mean that I don't have struggles too ladies! Getting back to exercise post pregnancy will give you more energy, help you sleep better, burn the baby fat, help you fight stress, boost your immune system, and allow you to be more focused on your baby because of the focus on yourself. There are even classes and facilities catering to moms. Here at my studio, we have a room where baby can sleep or play safely in your sight or you can have baby right by your side if needed. If going to a studio or gym is not your thing, then exercise at home. Whatever works best for your family is important. So take time for you mom!
