Since I gave a birth to my boy, I was thinking how to force myself to start workout my body again. I used to be so active before I got pregnant, everyday cycling on my one speed bike, going to the gym and training Capoeira were my favorite activities and I could not imagine my life without it!
A woman is often measured by the things she cannot control. She is measured by the way her body curves or doesn’t curve, by where she is flat or straight or round. She is measured by 36-24-36 and inches and ages and numbers. By all the outside things that don’t ever add up to who she is on the inside. And so if a woman is to be measured, let her be measured by the things she can control, by who she is and who she is trying to become. Because as every woman knows, measurements are only statistics and statistics lie.
But now, look at me, the lazy cow… too tired after just a short walk to the shop. So where to get the inspiration to start my routine again? I did some research on internet and I found Zuzana – by the way she is Czech too! And I believe, we Czech girls can do it! Although, like any other girl out there with a little bit of motivation.
What is better motivation than having a chance of Sexy Mummy’s body? The guys at BodyRock are really great. It is the whole community, everyone is passionate about what they do and you can find lots of motivation there! Plus they all do it for free! Of course you might say: “There is no time, I am so busy everyday with my child, or anything else. ” The good news? You only need less than 15 minutes, 5 days a week (for the best results). And now do not try to tell me you can’t find 10 minutes to make you look and feel amazing, now you are being lazy!
I started my first workout yesterday. My first after being pregnant for 40 weeks and 3 months and giving a natural birth to my son. I can’t tell you enough how did that feel! Amazing! It was so simple, I just logged in to www.bodyrock.tv and decided to start their February 30 Day Challenge. You don’t need to be advanced, it is for beginners too, everything is explained to details.
You even don’t need all the equipment, just use what you already have at home (flour, rice instead of weights). The only thing really needed is the Interval Timer. I got mine sorted – I am using HTC Android mobile phone, and it will work on any touch screen phone or even on your computer or iPad. Just download any application which has Interval Timer from the market for free!
I set up my Interval Timer following the instructions to complete the Fit Test to 50/10 with 8 repeating. Meaning there is 8 sets of workouts to complete each in 50 seconds with 10 seconds break. Just do as many repeating as you can in 50 seconds and write down the results. You will be surprised how your score is getting better each day!
In these 8 minutes of hardcore workout Fit Test, I am not lying, you will be sweating!!! And that really made me feel great. I am going to update my results each workout on a separate category I called BodyRock, where I will post each week also my pictures of how I’m progressing.
There is also a Diet Challenge which is again completely free, however I am going to try that one a bit later.
My Goal is to not to loose weight, but work with what I already have (since I had lots of compliments on that after my pregnancy). All I need to be happy with myself is to have toned muscles, improve my posture and nice round butt. I am a woman!
