Postpartum Workout Wishlist

Now that we're coming to the end of this pregnancy, I'm getting really excited to get back to pushing my body in new ways while working out.  I know it'll be a while (6+ weeks after Edie is born) before I'm cleared to attempt hand stands or start training for a race, but I'm already looking for ways to keep myself inspired when things get tough.  I'm sure they will after birthing a child and then resting my muscles for over a month!

New Yoga Mat: For Inside

How could you not be excited to roll out your mat every day if it looked like this?

New Running Shoes: For Outside

Daniel recently told me I "deserve new shoes" after how hard I've worked throughout this pregnancy--it was very sweet.  I've never had funky running shoes, but in the spirit of a new adventure (I'll be pushing a running stroller here soon!), I think it'd be kind of fun to go a little crazy :)

New Workout: For a Challenge

I've been hearing a lot about barre classes lately.  I'm always up for trying a new workout to challenge and change my muscles, and this style looks like it'd be an awesome one to explore! I came across this Fayetteville Barre Class Groupon a while back and have been thinking about going ahead and purchasing it so I'm forced to get out of my comfort zone a little once I'm cleared for exercise post-baby. I've read barre and yoga are great together for lean muscle toning, so I'm definitely interested.

I will say I'm very excited to work out in cooler temperatures after baby girl is born--fall weather, please come quickly!
