Avocadoshake and Bananasmoothie are working out!

Post by Bananasmoothie on Tue Mar 12, 2013 6:07 am

Hi,

so, I will introduce myself. Where to begin... I am 38 years old, mother of two, and married to avocadoshake :)

I did a bit of endurance sports (running, swimming, biking) some years ago, but since being a mom and the sole breadwinner, well - there is never enough time and energy left. But I am not happy with the situation. Fortunately, there is no weight to lose, and none to gain (1.68 m / about 57 kg), but a transformation of non-defined, rather slobby tissues into muscle would be very appreciated. My husband is very eager to show me the necessary exercises, but, well - I tend to simply forget the moves and then again, I am simply too tired from working and breastfeeding.
But spring is coming, and I will try to incorporate some exercises into my daily routines, tricking me into exercising without really needing time every day. Five minutes here, five minutes there, that should be possible. For the start, at least. In the long run, I would really like to be able to do long runs again (though I always hated hated hated running), go hours and hours on the mountainbike, and so on. But small steps first, and so I am here to trick myself into working out.
Have a nice day!
Isa

Isa, welcome! Married to Dominik, eh? Sounds like you have your work cut out for you! (just kidding!)

It shouldn't take too much for you to get in shape, just a little daily consistency doing a few of the right things, and there's no better role model for you when it comes to consistency than our beloved Avo. :)

Welcome to the forum. Why run if you hate running? You'll be more consistent and get better results if you stick with activities that you enjoy.
Banana Smoothie is a way cooler name than Cottage Cheese :D

Welcome Isa! I hope you learn to enjoy BWE. Only good can come from it!

My wife joined the old site and made one post. I hope you're not like her!
To be honest though, she doesn't do much posting on any sites.

I think it's neat to have a couple here!

(Love your name!)

Thank you all for the nice welcome! I will start a training log; just introducing myself to you all on this board has helped in getting me more focused on working out. It is not much, but as I said, small steps first.
And I have to ask Dominik how to quote - I am more of a lurker in forums, so have no idea how to do this.
Someone asked why I want to run if I hated running - well, it is some sort of love-hate thing. I did it to balance the biking, and it made me very proud to be able to run for an hour. As I said, love-hate thingie ;)
But to be able to run again, first I have to stop breastfeeding. Even with a good sports bra, running is very uncomfortable for me. Furthermore, I need new shoes for my large feet (not big, but large. Think of ducks. Well, yes, this is the form of my feet. Fortunately not webbed). Dominik has tried many different brands of shoes, so he will be able to help me choose.
For the moment, I will continue to work out in the apartment. Training log will start soon!

Hi - this is Isa speaking.
Still here, Dominik just mentioned that you asked, so I took his computer. Still trying to find the courage to start the thread, as I do not workout as much as wanted. hmmm... perhaps later this evening? Perhaps if the baby sleeps early tonight (ok, joking... our children NEVER go to bed early. Must be genetics or something :)
have to go, baby cries, hooray. :crybaby:

Haha, well start when you can. Even if you only train a little bit each day, it goes a long way to have others encouraging you in your successes, not matter how small they are at the start. :)

Actually I have to credit my wife for being the mastermind behind all our geocaching ventures. She does the planning and logging!

Excellent to hear. Yes Babies and the rest of life happen.
Dance parties are always a great way to get in some moving around - the boys and I do it often.
Good luck and Avo get to mentoring already!
