When I think of how fit I used to be honestly I can’t even comprehend it. After I finished my radio shift PB (not personal best, pre baby) I used to pop off for a 10-14KM run BEFORE Crossfit and sometimes get a yoga session in later that day. Keep in mind I worked on a Radio breakfast show in the morning then was ‘on-email’ through the day but life now does not mirror that in the slightest.
Now my children 1 and 3 and my several jobs take up the lion’s share of everyday. Even though I’m a yoga teacher and have been doing that for 15 or so years (don’t count) I still need to remind myself to breathe. I refuse to use any Strava or running apps because I’m pretty sure Ants on the App would have times that bettered mine. I run slower, less and less often, I only get to yoga a couple of times a week and I do so much less than I used to. The moral of the story is however, it’s ok. You are a mum, honestly I don’t know how you do it, it is in fact the toughest and most gruelling job ever, harder than any work out! So be patient with yourself as I have been with myself, don’t get to judgey and ease back into what you can do when you can do it. You’re a loving mother who cares for little humans daily and that makes you more beautiful and ANYONE on instagram.
