And so my story begins of finding my way back to my fitness body...
This morning, it hit me that mini J came to this world 6 moths ago and I'm still not back in shape. I teach 2 classes at the gym at the moment, BodyPump and IndoorWalking, and I love it. But it's a pain to look myself in the mirror and not recognising who I have become. It's a lot softer and squishier Jax, both physically and mentally. And I miss the fresh-looking, bouncing of energy woman I once was. So I've had it! Although I'm exhausted from not being able to sleep through the night as the little mister wants to nurse about 3-5 times per night, and that's only between midnight to about 8 o'clock, I have decided to start working out at home to my favourite trainer, Jillian Michaels. And today was Day 1 of her Body Revolution program. I was already sore from my BodyPump class last night but now I'm even more sore. What's good is that the workouts are short. Only about 30 minutes, which is great for a mother like myself who is trying to squeeze in too much during the days at home with the baby. It felt so good after the workout and I really liked it. It wasn't too bouncy or jumpy which suits me good as I'm still a bit fragile when it comes to plyometric moves. I love working out in the mornings and hopefully this will be the start and come back of a great habit.
In the afternoon I took the dog and the baby in the pram for a long walk and ended up clocking 6,7 km. Yup, my legs are sore now. Haha! I'll see how sore I am tomorrow and if I'll be able to do workout 2 or not. I need to plan the workouts a bit since I have my own gym classes to be fit for as well.
All in all, a good first day of my own Body Revolution. :)
