|Well, we're 5 months into the year, and I've been thinking about how I wanted to lose my baby weight. So I started thinking about exercise. When I was pregnant, I would walk EVERY day, usually in the morning. But when the baby arrived, it started being hard to exercise.
Now, I hear some of you thinking, "but Tarale, exercise itself won't help you lose weight!" and I know that, but it helps your body in so many other ways that have a knock-on effect.
There's a really good book called Spark that I read a few years ago that goes into some of it, for the brain in particular (if you don't have time for a book, this YouTube video sums some of it up). For example, it can help with anxiety, depression, ADHD, and more, through the ways it affects the brain's reward systems. And if your brain is functioning better, you're in a better position to resist those cookies…
So it got me thinking about exercise again. I probably can't do a lot, because the baby doesn't give me much free time, but I really need to start trying to fit more in. Probably trying to walk more, because I can do that with the baby in his pram looking at the world (he loves that… for a while, anyway…) Mum keeps offering for me to go swimming while she takes the baby to swimming lessons, and I'm tempted, but I also don't want to miss him exploring and enjoying the waterrrrrr
And I'm wondering… what exercise do you guys do?
