You love being a mother; we all do but the truth is it becomes hard to take care of yourself once you become a mother – you don’t work out like you used to, you don’t pamper yourself like you used to and you certainly have a hard time achieving back and maintaining the perfect figure you once used to have.
Especially, after you give birth, it becomes really difficult to lose that fat you gained during your pregnancy period and to monitor your child 24/7 along with it as well. We recommend that once your baby has grown up a little bit, you should get back to exercising and working out to try and achieve a fitter and slimmer body. Of course, the time management will not be as easy as it used to be but here are some things you can do to make the best of it.
- Find A Routine That Suits You
Getting back to that workout routine after a long, long time can indeed be a difficult task. Here’s what you need to do: You need to figure out a workout routine for yourself. Talk to your husband about when he can take care of the baby for you, find that time, and get out of the bed and EXERCISE! If you have understood the sleeping patterns of your baby, you may be able to manage a few slots of workouts in between while your baby is asleep.
- Walk Walk and Walk…
Going from nothing to hardcore workouts seems to be nearly impossible. What you need to do at this point is to take it slow. Take one step at a time, so start from walking. Take an early morning walk or a 30 minute walk daily. The best part about taking a walk is that you can include your baby in it. Find the best lightweight stroller you can, buckle up your baby in it and go off for a mommy-baby walk.
- Grab Some Weights and A Yoga Mat
Never underestimate the power of a few weights and a yoga mat. This is one of those workouts that you can do in the TV lounge or the kitchen (if you have some space) and easily shed a few pounds out of it. This way, you get to work out and be around your baby all at the same time.
- Eat Healthy
You no longer have the ‘cravings excuse’ you had in your pregnancy period. You are now in charge of your own body and it’s very essential that you feed your body with good and healthy food full of essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients. You may try some fat blaster remedies along with it, like lemon water early in the morning. Click here to find out how to make it easily in a few steps.
