Life with a small human is wild! The day to day: cooking, cleaning, feeding, playing, mommy meet-ups, shopping, laundry (omg the laundry) is never ending. And when you’re on a health and wellness journey where things like daily workouts and walks, eating healthy and getting proper sleep are non-negotiable, there leaves very little time for anything else.
As you can see from the title there’s a new baby in the mix. I’ve been away for some time because, well, I had the absolute worst pregnancy (more on that later) which left me depressed, bed bound and zero desire to write about health and wellness — because my personal experience was anything but. Now that my daughter is here and I’m feeling a bit more like myself, I’m excited to jump back in and explore health and wellness postpartum (because I’m living it and it’s wild).
I used to be the type of person who only worked out at the gym or fancy and expensive workout studios. Then COVID-19 happened, and well, we were all forced to adjust our workout routine. I remember researching online for possible solutions when I saw an ad for Beachbody on Demand. Full disclosure: I had serious reservations. I didn’t think it was possible to get in a decent workout from my living room with a few dumbbells. Now almost a full year of exclusively doing at home workouts (aside from running or cycling outside), I can confidently say I won’t ever go back to the gym full-time. This new way of working out has completely changed my mindset around what I can achieve fitness-wise from the comfort of my own home.
