I know that all of you have scoured the internet – blogs, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, and everywhere in between – in search of the secret trick to being “healthy.” Now here’s the truth that no one wants to hear: being healthy means living a healthy lifestyle. It takes work, time, and making changes in every aspect of your life.
When I got pregnant, I was a 24-year-old fitness junky. I was spending at least 4-7 hours per week doing Pilates, yoga, kickboxing, the rowing machine, ballet class, and whatever other activities kept me moving. Like most new moms, I wondered how my fitness routine would change while I was pregnant and how much I would be able to handle after baby was born.
As a new mom, it can be hard to find time to take care of your home and family, let alone take care of yourself. When you have limited time to spend with your baby, the last thing that you want to do is ignore him or her so that you have time to exercise.
