y'all, we have a lil' girl!!! i'm still not big on pink though and plan to keep the yellow/gray/white color combo going for Kosi's nursery. speaking of yellow, thanks to my girl Dami for hooking us up with this beautiful Solly Baby Wrap!
as parents know, newborns change daily. that's exactly why i'm soaking up these precious moments with each of my babies cause time just continues to fly on by. things won't always be this way. people still ask me if i'll return to the IT field (lol) and i still don't know! God knows i'm right where i desire and need to be right now, though, that's for sure.
only perform this workout if you have been cleared to do so by your doc, mamas! as of this past friday, Dec. 16th, i was given the green light to lift again. however, i'll be on lock down/house arrest for a while cause of breastfeeding (i don't lug my pump around with me if i don't have to) and Kosi can't join me at the gym until she is 3 months old. soooo, home workouts, GO! i'll be filming the entire workout soon and posting to my YT channel, but here's a collage/snippet of our very first one together (even though she slept the entire time ;) ).
1st combo: 3 x's through
sumo squats (turn feet and knees out to side) - 25 reps
fast arm circles forward + calve raises - 1 min
knee ups + overhead press - 1 min
2nd combo: 3x's through
side step squats (R & L) - 12 reps on each side, 24 total
good mornings - 20 reps
outside foot taps (engage your obliques) - 25 reps on ea side
wall pushups - 12 reps
3rd combo: 3 x's through
chair squat - 25 reps
reverse fast arm circles + calve raises - 1 min
side leg lifts - 15 reps
runners lunges - 12 on ea side
just one round might be enough for you. listen very carefully to your body and let it guide you! don't overwhelm yourself and do too much too soon. most importantly, enjoy this time with your new little one!
