I got the "all clear" yesterday from my doctor to exercise. In fact, she said I had no restrictions and I can "do anything" including "pilates, yoga, running, weight lifting". Sheesh. She just started listing things I could be doing. I was hoping to hear something more like "having a fussy baby is really hard and you should take it easy". My brother-in-law said I should have requested 3 weeks of bed rest :) It was too late though ... I was already home from the dr and had the ok to go on with my life.
After Brooke was born I thought I would never feel good again. In fact, I felt horrible for the first 2 weeks and pretty lousy the 3rd. But, since then I feel better each day and was sure I was going to get the a-ok from the doctor yesterday. (Though I certainly don't have my body back, I am mentally and physically doing great). I also was pretty sure I was going to feel anxious about returning to any sort of exercise routine and more likely to continue doing nothing ... so I booked a free Stroller Strides class before I even went to the doctor. Now I have already committed Brooke & I to attending a class on Monday at 11. I talked to someone and they are expecting me, so unless Brooke is uncooperative we are going to do our first workout on Monday!
