Happy Monday everyone! Hope ya’ll had a great weekend. We had a busy weekend over here – on Saturday we watched one of Ava’s friends for the day and yesterday we had Ava’s regularly-scheduled swim class in the late-morning, followed by two birthday parties. 🙂
Today I thought it would be fun to check-in to see how I’m doing with my exercise goal/intention I set for myself back in January.
Get back to pre-pregnancy health, by getting back into my yoga practice (hit 2 yoga classes a week), working out 3 times a week at least, (this includes yoga, running, barre, boot camp), and running another half-marathon.
I think I’m staying the course for getting back into pre-pregnancy health. I am hitting yoga twice a week, (one is a hot yoga class again!) and I always feel so good after every class. It really does feel good to stretch and flow on my mat and find some calm and peace outside of my crazy, amazing house. 🙂 I checked back on this post from 2016 where I laid out several yoga poses I hoped to be able to do at some point. I still haven’t mastered the crow pose, shoulder stand, headstand, or wheel pose. I am able to do the dancer pose and reverse prayer pose, but they could always use some tweaking. 🙂
On a good week, I will work out 5 times a day and other weeks, I will work out at least 3 times a week which is awesome. I’ll either run (outside or on our brand new beautiful Peloton – below), go to a barre class, or go to a yoga class. It’s really nice that I have three different types of exercise that I like to do so it never gets boring. Stay tuned for another post on how Tommy and I are liking our new treadmill!
I’m still trying to find a half marathon that I can run – namely, finding one that works with planning ahead for all the training runs and workout sessions I need to do so I can ensure myself that I can finish the race, lol. If you know of any good upcoming, local half marathons I can run in the fall or winter, please send them my way!
Have a great day!
