Mommy & Baby Moves: The Basics (part 2)

Ahh Motivation Monday is upon us again! 3 loads of laundry, 2 cups of coffee, and 1 clean, organized closet all by 1pm…not bad huh!

As promised, some more Mommy & Baby Moves! These 2 exercises are just your basic moves and are very easy to perform with a baby who doesn’t move much…aka…the newborn phase up until they can’t sit still. I was lucky that little bug stayed still this long. (See The Basics Part 1)

Wait a minute, that’s not very good form…

Ahh, now that’s more like it…omit the head turn!

After you have a baby, don’t get too excited about doing a plank, it’s going to take a while to build back up to them.

Yet another excuse to smother my little bug with kisses. The poor thing…it’s good I don’t wear lipstick or she’d be permanently stained! I barely got this pic in before the camera battery went dead, so that’s why this Mommy & Baby Moves is a bit short today. Sorry, I’ll do more next week or later this week perhaps. If you are into yoga, I also like doing a downward facing dog and then go into a plank and then into a pushup!

Here are my workout goals for this week:

It doesn’t look like much but I’d rather do the smart thing and ease back into my running frequency, otherwise I’m terrified I’ll get a knee injury! Eeeekkk. I only had a few shooting pains yesterday so it seems to be getting better. I also plan to be doing my bikini butt & legs 5 minute workout a few times along with creating a 5 minute cardio blast (which I hope to post this week ). I feel so inspired by the weather that all I want to do is be outside all day!

Happy Monday and have a great week!
