How Working Out makes Me a Better Mom

With a two-year-old and a three-month-old, this Momma is tired! My first two months after having Justin was rough. I was emotional. I mean emotional. I’m normally emotional, but this was bad. I would cry uncontrollably for no reason whatsoever.

Once Justin started sleeping more in the night, I began to start working out again. I gained a lot of weight this pregnancy and haven’t lost much of it. I’ve had body issues, sometimes sabotaging myself with cookies and ice cream.

Working out makes me feel stronger, healthier, and more beautiful.

Working out makes me feel stronger, healthier, and more beautiful. With my late sleepers that my husband and I have created, I can sometimes sneak in an early morning workout after pumping. After pumping, I usually can’t go back to sleep anyway, so might as well make the most of my time. My time is much better spent working out than cleaning the kitchen that is so desperate to be cleaned.

Many workouts will do the job. Currently, I’m doing Bikini Body Mommy. The workouts are short and beneficial. Of course, pairing workouts with a healthy, balanced diet, will make losing weight and getting strong even easier.

Working out starts my day right. Even if I wake up tired, once I get a workout done, it resets the day for me.

Carrier my two-year old is easier. Putting on clothes feels better. I feel stronger. Healthier. Prettier.

It seems so simple. Try to fit in a workout. Some days I work out with my two-year-old climbing all over me. Other days I half workout while wearing my three-month-old. Either way, I get it done. Day after day. I just hope I can continue this.
