Do you remember the highest of highs and lowest of lows I was talking about previously? Well, here is one of them. I started Pinterest gold in the form of being lazy and getting some form of workout in along the way, it was titled Lazy Girl Fitness. My favorite is Microwave Abs and Brush Calf Raise Brush, which seems to be your favorite as well because they have been pinned over 100k times. Yes 100,000 plus times, omg that blows my mind still. For a girl who just doesn’t have the time to get to the gym, I only shared my everyday occurrence and it was received so well. I was so excited to see that others were in the same boat and wanted to take a glimpse into more of the lazy girl fitness activities that I do. I also had just found out I was expecting.
I was at the highest of highs, I had just connected with readers, they were talking about their concerns about staying healthy and how I was helping them make the most out of their day. I also just found out that I was pregnant, and I was thrilled about that as well. And then I started experiencing a roller coaster that took me to a low point. I was extremely sick; I vomited over three times a day, but I was still not considered to have Hyperemesis. My fitness activity halted; I ate high carb foods to try and get relief and keep calories. Readers would email me asking for more ideas and I’d let them know I was pregnant and experiencing serious symptoms. A lot of people were supportive and nice and others were hurtful (telling me that I should not start something and then stop it). Remember, Lazy Girl Fitness is not a workout program, it is the way I make time to workout.
Then once I had Logan and 12 weeks later, I started to create more Lazy Girl Fitness ideas and routines, things were going great. But life reminded me of life and in minutes my baby boy was fighting for his life in the PICU. He recovered; I didn’t…I was a nervous wreck. I did not want to be away from him; I wanted to hold him forever. Then, time past and things got a better, but I still wasn’t ready to begin putting Lazy Girl posts up again, because they would have been forced. Blogging has to be real; it has to be raw and I did not want to post something just because it would be pinned.
After a talk with my husband, actually a few. I started to realize the clarity of things and that I can post one here and one there, I do not have to make it a series that people come to expect. I can post Lazy Girl Fitness just as I post anything else.
Be me, Be true to myself.
Now with all that being said… Welcome back Lazy Girl Fitness.
Step One: Find a long hallway (or go outside)
Step Two: Grab your buddy…or put your cutie at the end of the hallway (Logan used to laugh so hard when I did this before he was mobile)
Step Three: Start in a frog style squat (keep your back straight) and jump up to the sky reaching your hands overhead and land back into a frog style squat.
Step Four: Add a ribbit sound if you would like giggling to begin
Step Five: Repeat as many times as you can
p.s. Feel free to pin 😉
