This is a fitness blog, but lately getting off the couch is plenty hard enough, so needless to say it has been months since I have done any workouts beyond a leisurely walk. So, during this down time I have been planning for post baby workouts.
The first part of my plan for when the baby comes is to do more aerobic cross training (walking), so, to that end we just purchased the bob sport utility stroller (easy to push and holds a lot of stuff, but with big tires and full suspension to keep my husband interested!). So far it seems great pushing it across the living room, but a review will have to wait since people may look at me funny if I strap Steve into it for a trial run. Picture a rolling, black and white version of a “grumpy cat” demotivational poster, complete with with a rude and unprintable caption. To read more about my workout buddy, Steve, click here
The second fitness plan I am really excited about is P90X3, which is just like the original P90X, but only takes 30 min. This is exciting because each workout only takes 30 min, so it will be easy to fit in while she is napping!
Five great reasons I’m looking forward to doing P90X3:
1). It’s only 30 minutes long and perfect for me when I’m taking care of a baby because my life will be a time crunch.
2). Is not a graduate program, therefore, I should be able to pick it up quickly even if I am a bit rusty from my layoff. Also, I don’t have a P90X2 diploma.
3). I have all the required equipment – just a pull up bar and weights.
4). There is a modifier in each workout for people like me who are getting back into shape.
5). There is a separate DVD for the warm up and I can throw it in if i have the extra time.
