The miracle of birth is quite possibly the single most beautiful and magical thing the universe has to offer. It’s also a body wrecking suffrage. There’s no denying that parenthood is a beautiful thing and you love your children more than anything, but there’s also no denying that pregnancy will do horrible (beautiful) things to your body. It can be difficult to pick up where you left off after having a child, but all is not lost, it’s not as hard as you might think to get your body back to its former glory.
It all comes down to developing and sticking to a workout routine. What kind of routine you need varies from person to person, as we all have different ideas of what we want from our bodies, but there are some universal truths to consider, of course. There endless articles, videos, and more that can point you in the right direction. Once you find a routine that works for you, you have to stick with it.
It can be difficult to stick to your routine. After all, working out is the hardest thing most of us do from day to day. It’s worth trying to reward yourself for adhering to your regimen. In the case of dieting, there’s the time honored “cheat day” where in you can eat whatever you want without worrying about your dietary restrictions. For working out, however, a suitable reward is less obvious, but you just have to get creative and really reinforce your newly developed habit.
Remember to set smaller goals on the path to your primary goal. For example, when it comes to weight loss, you can set the goal of losing 10 pounds by the end of the month. When it comes to working out, your goal can simply be doing more each day than you did the day before. Remember, of course, to dress for your workout. Wearing the right clothes makes all the difference in the world, and Athleta can provide great clothing for all your athletic needs, and then some.
