Everyone knows that the decree is difficult to lose weight. Many believe that it is almost impossible. Especially if you are breastfeeding. Here and hormonal background is important, and the fear of eating less than you need (and this means eating more than you need) and the lack of physical exertion (after all, taking care of a child does not apply to physical exertion). And even more, I’m talking about pregnancy after forty …
When I became pregnant, my task was not only to bear and give birth to a healthy baby. I also tried very hard not to get fat. I coped with both tasks, and I am very pleased. Now my task was not to get better, sitting on maternity leave.
I remember my sad experience after the first birth. Then I recovered for fear that I would have little milk. This time I did not eat for seven. Of course, I didn’t get better, but my stomach and sides do not want to leave.
From about February, I cut my diet. Already a little thinner (2 kg gone). But I want to be fit and slim. Without sport can not do. I will say right away that I don’t have the opportunity to attend the fitness club regularly – my husband works in shifts, grandmothers live far away, his daughter is studying in another city. So I decided to do it on my own. Up to this point I tried to study, but it was one-time. From time to time. And here constancy is required.
How to make yourself?
I looked at myself at the next photo and was horrified … That seems to be only about two kilograms extra. But when they form a lifeline … And I am also terribly uncomfortable physically with them.
Immediately I wanted to load my press and sides. Since the gym is not available to me, I do the exercises at home. Moreover, my favorite set of exercises is always with me, and I can find a room not cluttered with furniture.
Clearly outlined for themselves the task: to do every day. Twice a week I do a full forty-minute complex, the other days are short exercises. Not to miss classes, I hope, the method of my familiar girl who practices yoga will help me. She notes in the calendar every day when she was engaged. Unmarked days spoil the picture, and she tries to avoid them.
Since I try to work at a computer in the daytime sleep of a child, I will study with him. Fortunately, he likes his aunt, moving to the music on the screen. I made him dumbbells from two yogurt bottles. My dumbbells of the same plan, only more (I am economical and with fantasy :-)). The son periodically joins me, looks at the screen and repeats the movements. Of course, it happens, it distracts me, sometimes it interferes. It does not always work out to the maximum. But, you see, this is better than doing nothing.
Walking on the street
During the walk I always try to run and jump with my son. What do you think, nothing that an adult aunt jumps on the sidewalk, portraying a frog at the request of the child? 🙂
Today I went for a run for the first time after winter. In winter and when it is damp, I don’t run, because I don’t want to run on asphalt: the spine does not approve. And now, when the earth is dry, you can start. A runner from me, of course, is awful: for 15 minutes I’ll go back and forth along the alley, and that’s enough. But even such runs on my figure and state of health affect well.
The son has already grown up and this year I plan to buy a child seat on the bike. When it is warm enough for the child, we will ride around. Fortunately, we live on the very edge of the city, and nature with clean air next to it.
It turns out, during the decree, it is quite possible to play sports. If you do not look for excuses. I hope that everything will work out for me, and I will put my figure in order. After all, I have a very serious incentive – my younger son.
