My Weekly Workout Goals
I definitely wouldn’t say I am a workout guru by any means. It is still a practice that I struggle with as far as consistency goes. I only recently got into more of a ‘weekly routine’ as far as certain classes and types of exercise I try to do. The gym and I had almost zero relationship up until my pregnancy. I found myself horribly uncomfortable with difficulty sleeping which led to me trying out my first prenatal yoga class. I was hooked. During my second trimester is when I really started a (pregnancy safe) gym routine.
I figured out that if I was going to actually leave my house and go to the gym I needed some type of appointment or class that I had signed up for to get me there. I am not someone that wakes up on my own and wants to go to the gym. However, if I’m signed up for something (and there’e a cancellation fee lol 😝 ) I am going. The gym that I attended throughout my whole pregnancy, PreNatal Fit, was all classes. I loved this because like I said, it keeps me accountable. The other gym I attend, Webster Chicago Athletic Club, is where I have my trainer, Becky. I’m sure people have seen me mention her, or cursing her name, on my instagram before.
My weekly breakdown, or at least what I TRY to do is the following:
Tuesday and Thursday- weight training with Becky at CAC
Wednesday- Cardio Class
Some weeks I nail it and do all of these classes plus some add ons. Others, epic fail. Its a balance. My goal is to up my yoga! I feel like my back is still a hot mess from poor posture while breastfeeding. Moms, does it ever not hurt or do I now just move onto different aches and pains from carrying around a soon to be toddler?!?
My ‘cardio class’ for months while pregnant and after pregnancy was a step class at PreNatal fit on Wednesday mornings that had me hating/loving life! Since little man is turning one I have, temporarily, started venturing away from Prenatal Fit and am now doing Spin class at CAC Wednesday mornings.
There you have it, in a nutshell. My goals, in this area, are to look into more yoga and start working out on my own.. maybe even when we travel?!?! Holy cow… I’m getting crazy. 😝 Share some of your favorite places and/or classes! Also, if anyone would be interested in a peek of what Becky and I do let me know! Maybe I could start sharing some of our days together.
All outfit details for my workout clothing is shared below!
I tagged either the exact item or similar items below. Alo is a top favorite workout brand of mine. The yoga pants are VERY comfortable and durable so they last. I also really like fabletics for the cute patterns and price. The quality is great, slightly thinner material compared to Alo. For gym shoes I love Adidas and Nike also but there is something about the APL shoes. The slide on is amazing for me since I am always running late and the colors are gorgeous!
