Training post pregnancy

During my pregnancy I have been missing my body pretty much. The freedom to be able to do what I want and to be filled with energy was what I missed the most.
Don´t know what´s normal but maybe it´s because of my history from being a top athlete. Always super fit and having 100% control over my body contra not even being comfortable to tie my shoes nor to shave my own legs…

I was looking forward to post pregnancy and that freedom again. To fit into normal clothes, not carry any extra kilos anymore and to be able to excercise like normal.

Some parts are going to plan, like the fact that I can see my own toes again and to tie my shoes without problem. And my weight is going steady down. To peak above 70kg at the end was weird and I´m happy to see those kilos dissapearing. That I dropped 10kg since his birth helps a bit atleast 🙂
Because Morris came to the world through c. section I´m still wearing “prego”pants to protect the scar that needs to grow. And for training I have very hard restrictions and I´m not allowed to carry any heavier then the babys weight. I can push the boogie but not in any hills, which makes it a bit complicated since we live on the top of a hill…
I need to be extra careful for atleast 2-3 more weeks and with lifting heavier weights they do say up to 12 weeks…

Poor Martin! This is what it looks like when we are on the go these days.
As long as I don´t do the hills 🙂

12 weeks seems like a long time. Not that I´m very keen on getting back into the gym but it´s more that someones tells you what you can´t do instead of what you can!

I have been through operations before but never such serious one as this. They have been through 5 layers to get him out and I do realize that I need to be extra careful.
Before I have just listened to my body and to push it a littlebit hasn´t been a risk. But when my midwife came for a home visit the other day and I told her I had been out with my boogie she looked seriously at me and told me off…

That´s how I am and how I always been, so guess it´s good that someone is telling me off! To push boundurys is just normal for me…

 

Summer is on it´s way and luckily they haven´t said anything about riding my bike… Maybe I won´t even ask 🙂

My road back to a becoming a fit mum will probably take some time but that doesn´t matter.
If there´s something we have me & Morris, it´s time <3

Think I will use this wrap alot these next weeks. Atleast til I´m allowed to push the boogie in the hills! Very cozy and easy way to carry your baby 🙂
