I love seeing posts about how some of you are remaining active through pregnancy! If you have a healthy pregnancy, maintaining your routine is no only "ok", it is recommended. Even running! : ) This is the time for maintenance so stay active. Stroller Strides classes are great for this as the trainers are all pre and postnatal certified. It's super for your kiddos in the strollers to meet new friends, just like you will!
A quick note to both encourage and celebrate you all...this has been an amazing process for all of you! As moms, we all have different stories; some of injury, some of illness, some of elation and bliss, some of bewilderment and all of fatigue! : ) As we get closer to Mother's Day and closer to your events remember this:
There is nobody doing it better than you are right now!
*YOU are true athletes who manage stress and chaos and physical challenges like a pro! *Honor your body and acknowledge both what it has endured through in pregnancy and now taking care of another human being. You are phenomenal and so is your strength!
Go get um, ladies and Happy Mother's Day to ALL of you!
Since you all are moms, you are either marinating in the land of "Sesame Street" or you will be soon! This classic show always has a letter of the day and number of the day for the kiddos. I am proposing that we adopt a Word of the Day for this team.
Today's word (and everyday forward) is UNCOMFORTABLE!
"Why" you ask? Because if you stay comfortable throughout your workout/day you will not see the changes you want to see or get to the goals to want to achieve. We must consistently get a little uncomfortable to make these changes.
There's your directive...go get UNCOMFORTABLE Ladies!
What a phenomenal picture of you and your little bundle! I applaud your resolve to not open emails or get "dialed in" for a little while. It is true that we all want to jump back into life and get our bodies back (so to speak) after we deliver, however, that time in those first few weeks are so special and multi-tasking is just not what you or your baby needs. Your bodies will get back...maybe even better than before, but coming back in a smart way is the key to getting results, changing life styles and staying committed.
