2016 was a very good year – it was the year we had a son, became a family of four and actually survived to tell the tale! We even took a week-long vacation which was great. I had some fears about handling two kids but so far they’ve all been pretty unfounded!
I’m really looking forward to the new year – watching my kids learn new things each day is so exciting. But of course, I’m also looking forward to making strides for myself too. This year I would like to focus more on wellness through eating right, exercising, clearing my mind daily and also coming up with a better skincare routine.
I know it’s easier to say these things than to actually do them but I am really going to make a conscious effort this year because if not now, when? Here’s to a happy and healthy 2017. Hoping the new year brings you joy and peace. Just remember while you’re doing so much for others, to take a little time to do something special for yourself too.
Now that I’m over 7 weeks from giving birth, it’s time to get serious about working out. I have to say, I did luck out a bit and I’m just about at my pre-pregnancy weight…but not quite. I still would like to lose about 10 pounds and my main focus is to tone my thighs and backside as my jeans are not quite fitting as well as I’d like.
I joined a new gym by me but since it’s so new, it’s not open yet. So right now the On Demand channel is my friend and I’m doing different workouts each day – yoga, pilates, strength and core work, etc. I got Tracy Anderson’s Post-Pregnancy DVD from the library the other day and it’s pretty good too.
There’s more focus on ab work than anything else, but I do like it and will keep at it throughout the week.
I’m trying not to obsess, I just want my jeans to fit better! 🙂 Do you have any favorite workouts that you recommend?
