post-partum fitness

Well, I have my six week check up  and despite the stress, sleep deprivation, and joys of motherhood, I’m starting to get excited about exercising again.  I’ve already pored over the Couch to 5k training plan and will use that as a guide to help me ease back into running.  It is probably too conservative with my running background but I would rather be safe than risk an injury by starting to exercise too soon.  So, for this week I am going to try and do the following:

Cardio:

30 minutes 3x per week. Warmup 5 minutes and run 60 seconds, walk 90 seconds.  On the other days I can just walk 3o minutes with Olivia.

Strength:

  • 3 set of 10 modified pushups
  • Pelvic Tilts
  • Basic Breath
  • Head/Shoulder Raises

Finally, I’ve got to start working on eating healthily.  Next week my goal will be to start tracking my food intake by keeping a food journal.
