I was in the best shape of my life before falling pregnant. I enjoyed going to the gym and living an active lifestyle. During my pregnancy, my activity levels reduced significantly. I didn’t feel like working out and thought I would give myself a nice little break. I have struggled to get back on board since having my baby girl 6 months ago. I have a wardrobe of clothes that do not fit and I wondered where i would easily find time to commit to exercise. I find 15-20 minutes is about max for a dedicated amount of ‘exercise time’. I have started 1000 skips a day! I do it in the privacy of my garage when my baby takes her first nap for the day. I put my gym gear on, and grab my skipping rope. It is currently taking the full 20 minutes to complete and I am taking a lot of rest intervals but I know my cardio fitness is improving each time I commit myself to this activity. I feel proud of myself every time i finish, no matter how many times i trip up or how many rest breaks i need to take. Sometimes I do it twice per day…. 500 skips each time to equal my 1000 skips a day! It’s an activity giving me great results and something that is easy to find the time to do.
