2-3sets x 12-20reps
Lateral arm raises
Posterior leg raises
Slow walking Lunge to high knee
Calf raises to deep burn ..

My🌍 Snow Kenly❤️ Today is #5weeks for Snow & #5weekspostpartum for me! I have my #6week follow up appointment a week early today, hoping I am all good to go & have healed well. I think I have? Lol I feel great & my scar is closed & looks about as great as I think a #csection scar could look so hopefully my doctor gives me the okay to get active again. I'm dying to go sledding at my grandparents with my sisters (they have a gigantic hill in their backyard😍) Wish me luck! ☀️💪🏼#motherdaughterday #babygirl#newborn#postcsection#babysnuggles
Since Luna arrived a litto over a month ago, my back, hips, neck and hamstrings have been EXTREMELY tight. Like I can barely bend over or twist without having this aching pain. I know to some of you this is part of your everyday but I’ve been practicing yoga for some time and have never felt so tight and tense . I’ve been waiting to commit again to my practice but between work and duties I haven’t made the time. It’s only been 3 days since I’ve had this inversion table and my body is already starting to feel soooo much better, I feel lighter and less pressure on my hips and spine. I’m not where I want to be but I am patient and I am kind to myself and I will allow my body to heal gently with time and love. ❤️ #5weekspostpartum
A little over #38weeks progress. Weight gain is at 17 pounds but I’m feeling it. Overall, I’ve worked out less, eaten worse, and stressed less compared to the first pregnancy. Pregnancy #1 I did ALL THE RIGHT THINGS and ended in c-section because baby was #frankbreech. This time, obvi have been more lax and listened to my body which meant not doing as much in order to stress less. Definitely healthier mentally this time. And go figure, baby was frank breech again and flipped head down (🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽) AND I’ve gained almost 10 pounds LESS. Goes to show you we can’t take too much credit for our wrongs and our rights, we can only make the most of what is. I need that to be a t-shirt. .
Taking it day by day. Can’t wait to meet our little Noelle Dawn and to document my fitness progress. Scroll back in feed to see my start of BBG at #5weekspostpartum through BBG. Such a trip!
Today I cried because he had his first bottle and I felt like he didn’t need me anymore...this mothering/hormonal/sleep deprived/walking-around-with-your-heart-outside-your-body thing is NUTS 🤪💤❤️
Truth: I hate this photo (with a capital H). It’s one of those ones that I wish didn’t even exist. So why am I posting it on social media? There’s a point, I promise. A bit of back story to this shot: I was 5-weeks postpartum, with my second baby, at the time of this photo and my family surprised me with a trip to the #Bahamas. Trust me, when a woman has just had a baby (still wasn’t even cleared to exercise nor was my incision even healed), the last thing she wants to do is put on a bathing suit or frolic on a beach 😜. Then, try snapping a family picture in this renowned @atlantisbahamas chair & realize you sat in the totally wrong place and in the wrong position. Angles can make a world of a difference when taking a picture and this is proof. I look like a giant next to my son & hubby. So don’t be fooled by picture perfect appearances on social media. A lot of people have mastered how to stand, where to hold the camera, how to pose, what creams to run on their muscles to make them stand out etc. Remember how we were once taught to scrutinize advertisements in magazines? Now, we have to use that same discerning eye when looking at most social media accounts. It’s not saying that photo editing is a bad thing. For most people on here, their account is curated art to them. I just think it’s important that we’re all aware...especially new mothers, teenagers and those in a vulnerable place when it comes to body image. So cheers to a photo that Makes me cringe (everything about this trip was 😬). #wednesdaywisdom#overshare#newmombody#phototricks
Got our workouts in together. Today was my first day to workout postpartum. I had planned on starting yesterday, but after hours of packing and loading boxes I just didn't have it in me. Under normal circumstances I would not have used that as an excuse. But after 9 weeks of not working out, I wanted Day 1 to be a good workout and not forced. I did an all body weight Leg workout today and yoga for flexibility. I plan on easing my way back into a good routine over the next couple of weeks using mostly body weight exercises and working my way up to heavier weights. My body just went through a major trauma and I am still healing from it. Pregnancy and giving birth is a huge ordeal to your body and the body needs time to heal afterwards. I'm a big believer in letting your body heal properly after any trauma or injury. I'm not ready to rush back in to lifting heavy weights and doing hard core workouts just yet and risk injury. There will be plenty of time for that once I've regained some strength and given my body the proper amount of time to heal. #5weekspostpartum ..
W o r s h i p /noun/ the feeling or expression of reference and adoration to a deity.
I just spent 32 minutes choosing to express my love for Jesus using weights and some of my favorite songs that honor Him. My soul is wide awake with thanks and my body feels alive. Have you worshipped Him today? #fitHisway#soulstrength
