C-sections reek havoc on the abdominal muscles; that's no secret. Two and a half years later, and I still have a lot of numbness in my mid-section as well as the occasional pain around my incision. But, it's tolerable and something I'll probably have to deal with forever. No biggy. However, when I do an ab workout, I feel like my abs are being ripped to shreds. Honestly, it's a very strange sensation and I've yet to figure out how to put it into words. If you're a c-section mama, maybe you can relate and know what I'm talking about. Or, maybe I'm just a giant sissy.
Anyways, I dread working them. Who wants to do something, knowing about 2 seconds in you're going to feel like you're being ripped apart? Definitely not this girl. I avoided ab workouts until recently for this reason. But, like my mama taught me, "it's a part of life... deal with it." No pain, no gain, right? They aren't going to heal themselves. Nor am I going to wake up tomorrow and they will magically be just like they were.
So, now that I've whined and cried about it, I'm going to share one of my
Toe touches are the devil himself, in my opinion. I'm still trying to work up to being able to do 25 in a row without having to stretch out. I'll get there eventually! Practice makes perfect. (something else my mama taught me.)
I did my starting fit test Monday night. I was dripping sweat by the end, so I take that as a good workout! I'll be sharing my results on Friday for "Fit Test Friday." If you try it out, let me know how it goes! I've made a tracking sheet if anyone is interested in joining me.
