Keeping Fit with a Newborn Baby Around is Possible

It is tough to be a new parent. Babies all have strange sleeping schedules and need plenty of attention. This can cause a gigantic lack of sleep, as we all know. I read about a mom who is still keeping up with her workouts even though her baby is only 11 weeks old. Her and her husband have been working to get their daughter to sleep in a more regular fashion.

This post called, “Sleep, Workouts and More New Mom Things”, talks all about the author Nicole’s attempts to get her baby to sleep and also her new workouts. She has been doing 30 minute video workouts while her baby naps. I respect her work ethic so much, and I felt that sharing the link to her story might be able to motivate some moms and dads out there who have fallen out of their workout routine.

This is a societal norm that is slowly changing, and I think it is for the better.
