Immediately after the birth of Eowyn I worked at repairing my diastasis recti. I had done my research ahead of time and landed on this article that gives some great ways to begin. I followed her advice and any time I thought of it during the days after delivery I'd do the exercises.
As time went on and my diastasis recti healed I started to add more core strengthening sets as well as lunges, squats, and a few others hoping to lose weight and gain strength.
To be honest once I hit my goal weight I have become pretty lazy about it, I know that just because I'm as small as I intend to be doesn't mean I shouldn't still be working at getting in shape but it has given me less drive to make time for it, unfortunately.
Plus, Eowyn has gotten really heavy and my muscle building didn't keep up with her weight gaining ;P
Here are a few pictures of my exercising and a brief explanation of the process.
And of course Jerusha would need a turn. I usually aimed for twenty lunges per side and did them in two sets. So counting to twenty twice.
We could usually handle about four sets of five. Sometimes more. Sometimes less.
And up.. I would try and get thirty in before the babies got bored and wanted to move on to their most favorite of all..
This was by far the exercise the girls enjoyed the most and nearly always morphed into an air plane ride for Jerusha which can also be a great leg work out!
We would do this until she got wiggly and bored. Probably only fifteen or so.
And there you have it. My attempts at balancing working out with mommy-ing. Hopefully posting this will inspire me to get back at it!
