Hey there! As I embark on my postpartum fitness journey, I’m realizing just how important the phrase, “It’s the little things”, really is each day. As a mama, I’ve learned that time is precious! Most importantly, time with my little guy/family is my number one priority. I can’t believe K will soon be two months old. I don’t want to miss out on a second with him. Each milestone is just so fun! However, I also know that to be the best wife, mama, employee, friend that I can be, I have to take time for myself by working out and eating healthy. I used to be all or nothing with this. I’d go to the extreme of working out six days a week for hours at a time while eating “clean” 99% of the time. Then, a vacation, holiday or life event would cause me to swing to the other side of the spectrum and lose sight of a fit lifestyle. I’m now at the point where living in the middle is not only something I desire, but frankly the only way to be! A fifteen minute daily burn workout is something I now find great satisfaction in. My old self would have said that fifteen minutes is not good enough. As a mama, I want to teach my son that the little things you do each day ultimately add up to something amazing! Every healthy choice I make, whether with food or exercise, will lead to more healthy choices. Those healthy choices will get me to my goals. I don’t have to be all or nothing. I don’t have to sacrifice pizza on a Friday night (when I can eat dairy again ha), or birthday cake or a drink now and then. The little choices I make are so worth it!
That’s my two cents for a day!
