3 Tips for Starting Postpartum Workouts

 | April 29, 2019 | Posted by:

Now that your baby is two or three months old, maybe you’re thinking about easing back into your workout routine. But where to start?

Here are some pointers for safely easing back into a workout routine.

  1. Start by walking. Take your baby outside and walk around your neighborhood or park. After a few days add in 10-20 lunges every two or three minutes. After a few weeks maybe try a minute or two of light jogging while you push the stroller, then walk for 5 minutes, then do some lunges. Thirty minutes of light cardio is all you might need to focus on.
  2. Add some weights. Once you feel like your body has adjusted to movement again try adding some weights. You can do lunges, squats, shoulder presses, bicep curls, tricep dips, and so many other great moves without even having to go to a gym.
  3. Be careful of crunches. Make sure that you are working your abdominals correctly. There is lots of information on how to safely heal your diastasic recti. You can always talk to your health care provider and they’ll point you to some great resources.

Do you have a post-pregnancy workout routine that you follow after your babies? We’d love to hear about it! Drop us a comment and let us know.

4 Ways to be a Part of Your Neighborhood

 

I don’t often like to look back and see the past as the “golden years,” but there is a lot to be said for how our grandparents/great-grandparents integrated into their neighborhoods. My grandmother talks fondly about her good friend that lived across the street with whom she would share a cup of coffee each morning after their children ran off to school. 

How sweet is that? Am I the only one whose heart squeezes at the thought of having a neighbor with whom I can share moments on a porch swing or under trees on a blanket in the yard?

This has been on my mind a lot lately, and have I’ve been wrestling with how to be more a part of my neighborhood.
