Postpartum Workout: Day 1

February 04, 2014 2 min read

It's official! I am 6 weeks postpartum, and I have been released to work out. JEEZ am I excited! I couldn't wait to wake up this morning and get my workout on at bodyrock.tv.  I was so bummed that I couldn't start the 30 day challenge when everyone else did.

But now that I have been released, I started realizing that my body wasn't the same.  First, I woke up with a splitting headache. Something that has been extremely common the last 6 weeks. My doctor shared with me that it is due to my hormones changing. They make me just want to sleep all day long, but I mustered myself out of bed this morning.  (My daughter has been sleeping better, but those late night feedings will keep you exhausted.)

As I prepped to workout this morning I didn't just face the challenge of my headache, but realized that my body is not the same! I did a total body workout and then a cardio workout. I only did 20 minutes total. I didn't want to work my abs specifically, because it's like I NEVER had abs. I used to be hardcore into pilates/yoga. My core used to be strong.   I am sitting there looking at my abs wondering where they have gone.

HOLY MOLY it kicked my BUTTTTTTTT! The kind where your whole body is in a little bit of shock.  I was told by my doctor to take it easy on myself, and I didn't feel like at the time that I pushed too hard. But now my legs feel like jelly and my arms feel like you can't pick them up. I think I only did like 10 pushups although the video did more. (Please don't judge me too harshly, I did work out almost everyday of my pregnancy, but due to health issues most of it I was limited to walking.)

With that said, my headache is gone, and my body is back on route. I am extremely excited about this and getting my workout on through bodyrock.tv!

Shipping & Delivery
We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system
