Today is a special day, Makenna is now 8 months! I can’t even believe how quickly she seems to be growing up. I swear it seems like just yesterday that I was complaining about how badly I wanted to have her already. She is starting to develop her own little personality and she’s just so much fun. Daddy captured a few pics of us today in the garage gym.
Before my workout today I was thinking about how I’m finally starting to look forward to exercising again. For a long time I wasn’t really enjoying working out because it was SO hard. I went through the motions and got it done, but I hated it. Completing a workout when you’re overweight and out of shape is no joy ride. Working out after taking care of kids all day, nursing, cooking, cleaning, etc. is even harder. I’m glad I’ve stuck with it this long and I look forward to feeling even better in a few months when I’ve lost another 10 pounds. If you’re struggling because of these same reasons, don’t give up!
4 Rounds of:
- 50 Crunches
- 10 Push-ups
- 1 Minute Plank
- 1 Minute Side Planks (30 sec. each side)
- Keep track of your time using a watch or a Timer. (We frequently use the MYWOD app and recommend it to our readers. You can keep track of your workouts, they’ve got How To videos, and of course the app has great timers.)
- Be sure to modify this at home workout to your ability level. Do modified push-ups if necessary and hold your planks as long as possible each minute.
