Yesterday saw the first 10 minute workout session in I don’t know how long. At least a year I think.
I started off with a 3 minute warm-up on the stationary bike stashed in the bedroom. Then dear daughter and husband gave me some exercises to do; they had chosen 8 execises and wrote them down numbered 1-8 and then daughter randomly shouted out a number. No jumping involved not sure if the pelvic floor is up to that yet!
Brief outline of workout.
1) Bike 3 minutes
2) Plank 15 seconds
3) 10 press-ups
4) The cat round the bedroom (see exercise page for more details)
5) 8 Lunges
6) 8 squats
7) Overhead press using the old dell laptop as it weighs a ton!
Repeat x 3
Whilst I was tired I wasn’t exhausted, but it was a good start. As the night wore on I started to feel a bit stiff. Especially the legs!
Woke up this morning feeling motivated so fed the baby and went for a quick run with the dog in the rain. Went slightly further than I have been doing. Now sitting on the sofa watching a film with the daughter, super stiff legs and have just had a large piece of cheesecake! Breast feeding and exercise mean a very hungry lady!
