Snow Shmo-workout completed
There was a strong moment right after I put Dutch down for his nap when I thought I might just sit down on the couch and watch Nip Tuck (pervy show, I know) and maybe eat some kale chips. I did not listen and popped in my yoga video asap.
I didn't even bring the baby monitor into my workout area with me. I knew Dutch was fine and he naps anywhere from 1 hr-3hrs. I wanted to really enjoy my 90 mins. and figured I could hear him if he was crying and if he woke up early, he could entertain himself. Mama needed her yoga. It was not an aggressive workout but it felt AWESOME! It was a great yoga sequence and I was sweating a bit but I felt really good the entire time. There was some burnage in the thighs but it still felt good. Yesterday's workout was intense and tomorrow's will be too (spin) so today was the perfect day for me to focus on breathing, movement and toning.
Bonus to at home workouts? You can exercise in your undies. Why create laundry? I am not kidding. Shorts are good for any photo ops, though.
Dutch was a stage 5 clinger from the time he woke up from his nap until right now. He was very high maintenance tonight and part of me thinks the yoga I did earlier probably helped me find some zen for this evening. It's not like he was tough but when he is yelling "mom" all day and wanting to be held, it can get a little like-AHHHHHHH CHILD!!!! (but I love you)
I would love to hear from anyone out there about anything fitness or mom related. Is anyone working out with me??? I loved that one of my sorority sisters reached out and asked for some exercises she can do quickly while the kids are watching tv. Hey-get it in where you can, girlfriend! I love it!
Party on mamsitas! Till the next sweat sesh......
