Fitness Check In {2 months}

It’s hard to believe 8 weeks have passed since B was born. Then again, it feels like forever ago I was walking around with my pregnant belly! Since my last fitness check in I have started back to work. That has made it a challenge to get my workouts in during the week. When I come home all I want to do is cuddle my baby, hang out with my husband, eat dinner, and go to bed early. I have 4 days off in a row so I am trying to make the most of that time. I’m slowing figuring out a schedule that works.

I went to a dance class at the yoga/barre studio that I am using a Groupon for, but it turns out that class isn’t included in the deal, darn! I really enjoyed the one class I attended. The energy was high, the people were nice, and I was doing my favorite thing-dancing! I’m going to keep my eyes open for a deal for that class, {or ask for gift cards for Christmas!} because I had so much fun!

I am slowing getting back into running. My first run was 2 miles at a 10:53 pace. I didn’t care though, I was running finally! Running has became easier each time I have gone out. I have been running once every weekend and am back up to 3.5 miles. I even saw a mile at 8:30-something I haven’t seen since before I was pregnant! I signed up for my second race of the year, the Thanksgiving Day 10k. My brother has signed up too! I love that I’ve passed the running bug onto him!

I’ve also been going to barre class when I can find the time. I’ve also been trying to do some ab work on the days I am home. As time goes on, and I get more sleep, I think I will have more energy to workout after work. For now I am enjoying Breck at this age. He is growing each day and his personality is starting to show! I will have his 2 month update later this week after we go for his appointment!

I am pleased with my progress in the past 4 weeks! I am 3 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight and I am starting to fit back into my old clothes (which is like having a whole new wardrobe!). I feel good and that is what’s most important!
