Exercise Routine for Beginners
I’ve let my workout routine slide this past school year. I have been really busy and I couldn’t keep it up. I still manage a tap dance class once a week, but that’s all I did all school year and now that’s ended. I’ve decided to start back up and been making good progress over the last few weeks. Here’s my personal program.
Walking My preschooler is out of school so she’s riding her bike with me every morning. I’ve already told my 2 boys they will be going with me. They can ride their bike or walk. I have a 5K trainer app on my phone and I will be starting that soon too. I’ve done it before so I know I can do it again. I think I can talk at least one of boys to do it with me. This has been my view every morning.
Yoga I have a membership at a yoga studio and I have gone twice this year. It’s pathetic. I love going and it’s really good to get those muscles going. If there is not a yoga studio near you, you can get some great DVDs or find a YouTube channel to get you started. My kids love yoga too and my studio offers “kid” yoga in the summer. Some people don’t think yoga is really a workout, but my shoulders end up killing me from all the downward facing dog.
I’ve been doing these for about a week and I am so sore. My body is definitely showing my age. I can handle the walking, but my hips and shoulders are killing me from all the yoga stretches. I went to bed the other night and I could not get comfortable. I kept looking at the clock and I knew if I didn’t get some sleep I was going to be in a really bad mood the next day. Just ask my husband and he’ll confirm that a bad night’s sleep makes for a cranky, nasty mamma! Sleep is probably, at least for me, the most critical component in muscle repair. I found some Advil®PM in my cabinet and it worked perfectly. It helped my sore muscles and I got some much needed rest.
