Sometimes, mama needs a break too! Whether you are shamelessly putting the kids to bed an hour early, or neglecting your chore list (guilty!) we want to hear from Y O U! C O M M E N T below what show you are currently binge watching?
I joined Stroller Strides at the end of July. I was 5 months postpartum and was at my heaviest weight. I was constantly feeling tired and had a lack of energy. My friend and I decided to check out the free class that is offered. My first class, I felt intimidated. I hadn't worked out in a year and here I was joining an exercise group when I wasnt feeling my best. I was out of my comfort zone. I tried my first class and even though I huffed and puffed through the workout, I loved it! The classes are geared towards the kids. Songs are sung, peek a boo games are played and if your baby is fussy you can stop and tend to him without anyone batting an eye. It's a 60 minute total body workout that can be adapted to any fitness level. I had to do modifications for some exercises, which embarrassed me in the beginning. But I quickly realized that the other moms were not judging me. They were too busy concentrating on their own workout and children. In just three short months I have built muscle, improved my endurance and am able to do more challenging exercises. What I have personally learned from Stroller Strides is to not have your insecurities hold you back. Stroller Strides is not only for "fit" moms or for "die hards." It is for the everyday mom. From the mom who has never worked out to the mom who has exercised her whole life. I am glad that I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried Stroller Strides. I am stronger, happier and healthier because of this group. And bonus, I am now able to fit into my jeans!
