I’m back to report on the progress of healing my diastasis recti. (In case you missed it, here’s part one.) What I am discovering is this is a slow, slow process, that doesn’t just involve doing some special exercises. I’m pretty frustrated that I’m not seeing more progress (progress photos are at the bottom of the post), but I also don’t think I’m working as hard as I could be.
The other day, I saw a photo of myself that someone else had snapped during one of my fitness classes. I barely recognized myself. The woman I saw in the photo looked like she was about 3 months pregnant! Say WHAT?! Let me be clear…I am NOT pregnant. No way. I am very much enjoying calling my body my own right at the moment. And, I definitely don’t feel pregnant – I really don’t want to look it.
One of the most difficult things I found when I became a SAHM was finding time to workout. It became something I really felt like I needed – there was a noticeable difference in my demeanor on days when I was able to workout versus days when I couldn’t find the time. With this in mind, I put together this 5-minute-a-day workout program. Don’t get too excited…5 minutes a day will NOT get you ripped. But, if you’re struggling with finding time or motivation to exercise, working in a little bit of physical activity everyday just may be enough to get your body revved up and ready to tackle an even bigger workout regimen.
