Many mums I talk to seem to have the opinion that it’s selfish or they need to dedicate hours at a time, but I think it can work if you want it to.
Take this morning for example, husband went for a run and I was itching to workout. Once Miss Zoey was fed, I got on my yoga mat to complete a BBG workout. What I love so much about Kayla’s approach is that you can complete the 7 minute circuits all at once or in blocks. Today I was fortunate enough to do the entire 28 minutes followed by a strength session in the garage. Other times, I have to break it up throughout the day.
I’ve talked before of how my self esteem is pretty much directly linked to how I look. Wish it wasn’t the case, but I’m working on all of that. So for me, eating right and sweating out that post-Bub weight is the best approach.
I actually think it’s healthy for kids to see mum work out. For me, it’s setting them both a good example. Harrison often joins in with a mini WoD – its great bonding time for us!
I also don’t think that workouts have to be done in a gym. I’m lucky enough to have a garage set up which I use regularly. But if you don’t have this, a yoga mat is a great start. Thirty minutes a day is all you really need to build up a sweat and feel better.
