A lot of you that know my husband and I are ready to have a baby. Recently I went to a doctor to get some tests done and he told me that I am the perfect age and appear to be very healthy. That all sounds great right? Well he also told me I need to start exercising 5-7 days a week to make sure my eggs are the healthiest they can be! I thought I was doing well when I went to the gym 2-3 days a week (which let me tell you RARELY happens) but now I really have to step up my game.
I recently joined spotify and started creating some pretty awesome playlists. I decided to sign up for the free trial of the premium membership so I could listen to my playlists on my iPhone. This has been absolutely awesome for me because I am motivated to push harder when I excercise by the music I’m listening too.
I have always wanted to enjoy running more and at times I absolutely despised it; I think mainly because it wasn’t fun for me. Well…I started seeing an AMAZING chiropractor, Dr. Heise, who discovered that I have one leg that is slightly shorter than the other (I know, I’m all kinds of cray cray). Because of this my whole spine was twisted and I was getting a lot of migraines. Over the last eight months or so Dr. Heise has been correcting this with adjustments and a heel lift. So I decided to try running again a few weeks ago and it was amazing! The combination of a good playlist and two equally long legs makes for running FUN!
I’m not sure what working out 5-7 days a week will look like, especially this time of year when things are so crazy-busy, but I am determined to put in a good effort. Does anyone have some tips or successes that have worked for you in the past to fit exercise into a busy schedule? Please share your stories! 🙂
