Leg Work

leg work out, work out, I can’t believe it’s been fourteen weeks since we welcomed our little bundle of joy into this world! Time has flown by and I’m happy I’m finally back to blogging. Sorry to go all MIA on you, but I seriously needed some time to bond with the baby and get my life together.

I can’t tell you how happy I was to get the okay from my doctor to resume my normal routine. I think that happened around six weeks postpartum and I may have waited a week more to go on my first run wanting to take my time and ease back into it. I’ll tell you what, for someone that has pretty much had physical activity as part of my normal routine for the majority of my life, it was like I had NEVER worked out before.

I’ve taken my time with getting back into shape and promised myself not to get discouraged. I canceled my gym membership in the first few months of pregnancy, not only to save money but also because I was scared to work out. I’ve started with the basics and am totally enjoying working out from home.

It’s funny how life comes full circle. I remember watching my mom do these leg workouts at home when I was little, and thinking how funny she looked and now here I am, doing the same damn movements, looking like a dog lifting his leg to pee BUT they actually work! So I will continue to lift and squat.

They’re easy to do from the comfort of your home. I complete the below circuit 3 times with 1 minute of rest between each along with a series of abs. I try to do this 1-2 times a week.
