First of all, if you’re reading this and you have just become a Mummy, congratulations! I’m sure you’re pretty drained at the moment, but don’t worry - it’s going to be an amazing time in your life. How do I know? Because, I’m here to help you and I’ve helped many new mums find that much-needed boost!
When I say boost, I’m talking about getting back into the swing of things. Yes, it was all great eating for two for 9 months, but let’s face it, we all want to get our pre-pregnancy body back!
But, I also understand that this time of your life is one of the most demanding. Late night feeds paired with early morning baby-sounding alarms can overwhelm the body and the mind. So, how do we do it? How do you get motivated after having a baby?
I’ll tell you...
Breaking up your routine in small digestible chunks.
I’m going to start with the most important in my opinion - which is time. Having a baby is a 24-hour job. Being a new mummy makes gym attending quite tough. Plus, the majority of most gym classes are at least an hour and that doesn’t even include getting changed, taking a shower and everything else!
The main solution here is to break your routine into sizeable chunks. If you want to work out for an hour a day, then maybe break it into 15 minute slots, while your baby sleeps.
There is also the added bonus of our buggyfit classes, meaning you can workout while your baby snoozes in the pram!
Don’t priortise your chores over exercising. Your chores can wait until the evening or can be passed onto the other half in your life. It’s important for your well-being to have some time for yourself and fit in exercise, so make this priority.
Seek out a trainer who will help you exercise safely.
Giving birth is quite a demanding task to say the least! It can also take it’s toll on your body. In this case, you may be concerned about what exercises you can do and what you can’t do.
Firstly, if this is the case with you, I’d avoid going to a generic gym class, as it may not be suitable for your body right now. I’d recommend seeking out a trainer, who has expertise in post natal fitness.
If you wish, you can contact me and we can discuss your needs and any questions you may have in discretion.
