Bringing it

Well, Friday marked the six week since Little Sister was born. Not only does it mean she's close to two months old now, but I'm also cleared for pretty much any type of physical activity.

Wohoo!! (ehh, kind of woohoo with a little boo mixed in)

So, now it's once again time to get back into shape and lose these lingering baby poundages. Yes, I said poundages and I may have just made that word up but it's early, I got up at 5:30 and have already worked out and ate breakfast - so we're going with it.

Anyway, I have seen a lot about this whole crossfit thing and know several people that are now crossfit junkies so I kind of wanted to give it a try. Going from not doing intense workouts for over 10 months to something like crossfit, um, I decided to try a little at home version.

I googled "crossfit exercises to do at home" and found this guys 16 day beginner workout.

I just started yesterday and have only completed two days, but man, I am so sore already. It feels SO good to be sore. It's not such a great feeling when the alarm goes off but I guess I'll take the trade.

So, my goals are to get up early, work out every weekday, 5 days a week doing these crossfit excercies, and eat healthy again and see where that gets me.

Well, that's all for today. Not that you care about my get-back-in-shape stuff, but there you have it. And since this is a pretty lame-o post, I'll leave you with a picture of my little monkey.

  1. I had a baby 7.5 months ago so I know how ya feel. I was so excited when I was able to start working out! I had baby weight to loose from 3 pregnancies! YIKES! My husband and I did the insanity workout. Tough! But I'm almost there. Good luck with your workouts! Keeping up with 2 littles will help melt those pounds away ;)

    1. Christy, congrats on your new little one! I did a little bit of the insanity workout after Paisley was born and it was brutal! Good but brutal.

  4. Good for you! Way to go! I just started doing the couch to 5k (c25k). I hate running but it's actually not bad because they really work you into it. I just downloaded the app on my phone, play my music, and it tells me when to jog and when to walk without interrupting my songs and without having to look at my phone. Pretty cool!
