The Workout Hiatus Has Come To An End

I’m determined to get my sexy back. ‘Where had she gone to?’ you ask, well, I seem to have lost her somewhere between being pregnant and lactating. I’ve been pregnant twice in two years, my body has ballooned, carried life and found a new form. The thing that I have learned about my body is that it’ll never quite be the same. But that’s not an excuse to let it go.

The WorkoutHiatus HasCome To An End

The gym is not really for me. The last time I seriously decided to work out I ended up in an operating theater having my second laparoscopy to remove endometriosis adhesion and a burst appendix. After that surgery, I took the doctor’s advice seriously. For a long time, I made ‘take it easy’ a way of life, but I miss being fit. Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro and taking part in a triathlon are still on my bucket list.

After I had my first born, I was the heaviest I’ve ever been. I woke up one day and decided things had to change. I stopped taking sugar, dairy and reduced my wheat consumption. I worked out at home and I was able to lose the Lupride weight that I had been carrying around for years. Tiffany Rothe, God bless her, really helped me work out and I loved the results.

After the second baby, I’ve taken longer to start working out. There was so much going on and I wanted to make sure that the wound has healed. But I’m back! Yesterday was my first day and I felt great. I’m doing low impact workouts that won’t leave me feeling inflamed. I had a spring in my step yesterday, I was feeling on top of the world. Today, on the other hand, I’m feeling muscles that I didn’t know existed. Lactic acid is at work. But I know that my body will be grateful, well, eventually.

Before you begin a regime please consult your doctor. Go easy on your body and choose a workout that suits your needs. What works for one woman may not work for you. Listen to your body and enjoy your new regime.

Blessings,

Ess

I am a wife to be, a beautiful bride making my way to the aisle. I have less than 6 months to get there, a day at a time. He put the 3 diamonds on my finger 6 months ago and so far so GREAT!!It has been the most beautiful journey ever. 'Life is a journey' are the wise words a friend shared with me that have made practical sense to me. I live my life a day at a time, with the end goal in mind. My resolve is enough to carry me through the day as for tomorrow and the days to come....I hear that HIS mercies are new every morning and should be quite sufficient to cover me in the days to come. So, I do not lack foresight...OH NO..In fact it is the opposite, I have just learnt to manage my expectations and enjoy my sphere of control:) I double up as the bride of Christ...He is my lover, my friend, at the center of my very existence. He is the reason I smile, the reason I have the strength to go the extra mile. He is my X-Factor, the reason that I will succeed and shine:) This blog is about my journey in life as I figure out my path to the aisle, to the other side of the wedding and most importantly to the other side of this very temporary life. When life overwhelms me,I wait for my sunshine:) as [caption id="attachment_6" align="alignnone" width="300" caption="I smile and wave!!"][/caption] Enjoy the journey of an extraordinary lady following her Master, fulfilling His mission and loving her mate!
