Getting Back on the Mat

I just finished my Tuesday workout – yoga.  This was the first full yoga routine that I have done in a very long time and it felt so good.

I mentioned in my last post that I had a tough pregnancy.  Back in May 2016 I, and my whole family, got really sick. I got the stomach bug, followed by a cold, followed by a horrible sinus infection.   Then just as I was feeling better, I started to experience morning (more like all day) sickness.  That lasted for months.  I also experienced a lot of physical discomfort this pregnancy – a lot of pain in my back and hips and I found the more I moved the worse it got.

All that to say, it’s pretty much been a year since I’ve done any kind of physical activity, including yoga.

Today’s Progress Report

The yoga routine that I chose to do today was one designed for postpartum – this is it here.  I have some separation in my abs so I need to be careful not to do crunches or anything that could strain those muscles.

I did the routine right after I put Isabel down for her first nap of the day.  I think this will be the time that I do all of my exercises.  She only napped for 45 minutes but it gave me enough time to do the 30 minute routine.

I have to be honest, I got a little bored half way through.  It was a really slow practice and I’m a little rusty so I’m not going to read too much into this.  I checked to see how much time was left on the video at 27 minutes, so not bad, and I did make it all the way through to the end.

Plan for Tomorrow

Tomorrow Danny has me doing:


We were going to buy some bands last weekend but we never got around to it so I’ll be doing the squats and lunges with weights.  As for the ‘ab thingie’ – well, you’ll just have to wait and see what that means 😉

So until tomorrow..
