Finding time to workout can be a challenge.
I have a gym membership which I use to attend. However with such a young baby, and breast feeding I haven’t been going. Kinda a sad excuse but I feel more comfortable not thinking that I might bleed through my nursing pad at the gym. Additionally, I just haven’t been able to get away from my beautiful baby boy. Additionally, not as important but still a factor, I have in terrible shape. It is crazy how your abs seem to disappear during pregnancy and my cardiovascular health was in the pits.
So for cardiovascular health I am walking. I walk 2 miles or I walk 1 mile with weights on my legs (just depends on the amount of time I have). These workouts have been good. I feel tired and like I am actually burning calories. Soon enough I will be back running. More on that down the road.
More importantly, for strength training, I found a great video with a terrific routine I would like to share:

It is a good all around workout. I feel that it hits total body, easy to find time for, and a “get back into some kind of shape” workout.
Let me know what you use for at-home workouts. I would love to know what other people are doing!
