Post Partum Workouts, Currently

I have been back on the workout track since last Wednesday. Nothing super intense yet, because I did need to get a good number of internal (and a few external) stitches. So we don't want to aggravate things that have not healed all the way yet. So I have been walking with Addie (and sometimes J, sometimes Karen... whomever wants to come and walk with us!), I did Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred twice (and being back able to do the abs as prescribed felt pretty great!) and on Tuesday, I did an at home strength routine that I came up with off the top of my head, hoping that I would feel good for doing it.
It was not the hardest routine. I am still using only 5 lb hand weights because my elbow is still pretty stiff and stuff. Doing a plank was particularly difficult. My arm CAN support me, which was much more than it could do, so that is good, but it was tough.

I have also been doing a ton of walking. 2-3 miles pretty frequently. It is not the same as it was when I was pregnant, when I was speeding through the miles, now I am pushing my stroller. (Hooray for the BOB Revolution!) and I am definitely moving more slowly. Regardless, I LOVE getting out with her and walking. I hope to get her adjusted to the stroller now, so we can run soon.
