Baby girl is 1 month old today – we celebrated with a pink, frilly, Hello Kitty party for her and all her little friends. Gluten, dairy and nut free of course.
HA! Her 1 month old birthday gift (as is every gift from hereon in) is having such awesome parents/ older brother…. And we celebrated by doing a workout – together!
First of all… Yesterday – first run since delivery. 4km, reasonable pace. The only thing that hurt were my burning lungs, so I guess we’re good to step it up.
Today – zero motivation. Sadly cannot sit on the sofa and gorge on cheese as baby girl doesn’t like it… (read: screams and doesn’t sleep… not worth it, the opposite of L’Oréal). So I have been just sitting on the sofa considering chocolate instead.
So we did a workout at home (something I have previously scoffed at – sorry to all you home-worker-outers)
Body weight squats (not strictly body weight – with baby in carrier and 5kg weight vest)
Push ups (hands on 2 separate chairs to allow gap in between for baby)
Body weight sneaky lunges (with baby, weights vest, ‘sneaky’ being 100% on toes)
Bicep curls with resistance band (nearly broke out my G-string leotard and leg warmers for this one)
Overall felt OK. Certainly better than my earlier sofa workout.
