A little over month ago I wanted to make a stronger effort to get back into shape and tone my body. I used to work out periodically, but I didn't really have a distinct "routine". I would do a quick Youtube workout here and there, but I didn't really feel committed to challenge and push myself. At the end of April I was visiting one of my favourite workout sites (Blogilates) and I noticed that she had a beginners workout calendar.
Since having Calvin my abs were pretty much destroyed and I haven't been nearly as strong as I used to be. So one of my hesitations with following a workout calendar is that the moves aren't basic enough for me. I literally have had to go back to square one, and that is why I fell in love with this workout schedule! Now although this is a beginners workout calendar, the workouts are still pretty intense and challenging which I love!!
Over the past few short weeks I have felt my body get stronger, and most importantly feel like myself again. I feel like I have talked about this on my blog SO much, but I really struggled with my post part body. It was so weird to see myself in pictures and not recognize myself. I was loving everything about my life, and I genuinely was happy, I just hated the way I looked. Now after faithfully following this calendar I can finally say that I love how I feel. I've decided to not weigh myself, but base my improvement on my strength, and how my clothes fit. When I focus on numbers I get too caught up in unnecessary pressure and forget about the true reason why I am doing this: to feel good.
There is no greater feeling than rediscovering your confidence when you've been without it for so long!
