Can I just tell you that I’m 9 weeks postpartum and it’s time to get into some kind of workout routine? Enter, postpartum workout inspiration: new workout clothes, a new workout program, and my three favorite fitness accounts on Instagram.
Lately, I just haven’t had the motivation. Before I became pregnant, I was seeing great results with the 21 Day Fix program and then, BOOM, I’m pregnant… See ya later workouts! I had no energy and wanted to spend as much time being lazy as I could because I knew my “me” time would be ending before too long. #selfish

New workout clothes always gives me that extra bit of inspiration I need to get a good workout in. There’s just something about putting them on and sweating in them. Please tell me I’m not the only one who gets inspiration from this?! I love this sports bra and top c/o the YogaOutlet.com. Both provide so much comfort and support. I love that the tank top has a built in bra and purple is one of my top colors!

I purchased the Piyo program from Beachbody before Cooper, but never tried it out. Laziness, see what I mean? Piyo is a combination of Pilates and Yoga and I’m pretty sure it’s going to be my favorite workout yet! Especially since I have a new Yoga mat and block to try out. I’ve only done the Yoga portion of the 21 Day Fix, so I’m excited to give this a try.
I follow some awesome fitness accounts on Instagram. These are my favorite three (click each picture to go to their account):
My plan is to start out slow. No need to burn myself out right as I’m getting back into working out.
Do you have any tips for a new mom getting back into a workout routine? I need all the help/inspiration I can get!
