I am now 10 days postpartum. I took a picture of my stomach because it came as a surprise to me how it is looking.
I already can’t wait to work out again, but it seems like working out with weights and doing cardio the whole pregnancy has seemed to have paid off so far. I feel like compared to the other two pregnancies that this is the best and fastest that my physique somewhat came back. I’m hoping that this means that when I can start working out again that I can get back to where I was faster before I was pregnant. Although I really want to, I know I need to hold myself back from jumping back into the fitness train just yet. My insides still hurt and sleep is coming next to none with the newborn, so I need to make sure I take my time to heal and get into a decent routine so I don’t hurt myself physically prolonging my comeback and don’t give myself too much stress mentally on such a lack of sleep. Got to remember to be patient and take care of ourselves mentally and physically, so when we are able to come back to our old routine we can come back full force and better than ever. Although I know that it will be a slow progress to the top again and getting to be able to do what I was able to do before at such high levels, it is good to remember that we need to be forgiving to ourselves and to be patient because healing takes time especially after having a baby.
