Today is February 27th, 2014. Which means, little Miss Monroe Eve is officially ONE MONTH OLD!! She’s already getting so big – growing up before my very eyes – it’s going by too fast! Man, I love her…
Anyways, onto the Fitness! Today makes 1 month since I gave birth to Monroe. From the 2.5 week postpartum mark, I’ve been slowly testing my feet in the exercise world (with the prior approval of my midwife since I had an uncomplicated delivery). I started with a couple T25 workouts alongside my husband but quickly determined that those were a bit too hardcore for my post baby “intro” workout. I therefore transitioned into the Brazil Butt Lift workout with trainer Leandro Carvalho. Now, this guy knows his butt exercises, lol. He trains supermodels like Alessandra Ambrosio, so I TRUST his moves!
I’ve been on this workout program now for about 1.5 weeks and so far am loving it! My core feels tighter, my thighs feel less “jiggly”, and I feel my tush is firming up. (jeans are fitting more comfortably!) Now, I fully know it’s only been 1.5 weeks, but I am definitely starting to feel a change! Watch my video below for more of my Post Baby Fitness story firsthand 🙂
Now, as far as how my workout time management is coming – I’ve determined that late night workout sessions work best for me. So far, I’ve done one early morning workout (when I woke up at 3:55am to nurse Monroe and couldn’t fall back asleep…) but I was so paranoid that one of the kids would wake up while I was in the garage working out – even though I had the baby monitor with me – that I found myself constantly looking at the clock and the baby video monitor. I couldn’t “enjoy” my workout :o/ Therefore, I usually resort to late night (9-10pm) workouts while my husband is also home. Once the kids are all in bed, they usually stay put so I can get my workout and shower in without worrying. It’s what works for me so far 🙂
2.5 more weeks of the Brazil Butt Lift workout left to go – can’t wait to see/feel my results!
