My new little boy is just about to hit seven months old, and I’m finally (sort of) settling into a groove. Translation: I’m starting to want to get back to a little bit of myself (whatever that means . . .) And while it may be a teensy bit difficult to take care of yourself when having a barely mobile little one requires you to become adept at doing things with one hand, one thing I’m really beginning to miss is having some semblance of physical fitness.
While I did try to keep up a workout routine while I was pregnant, those pesky pregnancy hormones (coupled with carrying an extra 20 pounds or so all in the front), made working out difficult (to say the least). And then when baby came along, well, let’s just say mommy was lucky if she found the time to shower . . .
In my pre-pregnancy days, I enjoyed doing triathlon and strength training, and I am definitely starting to miss the feeling of living in a body that is fit and somewhat agile. Particularly as baby gets heavier and more mobile, it’s becoming ever clearer that mommy really needs to hit the gym. Faster than I can blink, I’m sure the kiddo will be running all over the place, and I definitely want to make sure I can keep up with his busy toddler legs!
Anyhow, whether you’re a new mom like me, or just your average geek girl wanting to get her fitness on, check out this round-up of geeky fitness wear I’ve discovered around the web. You never know, perhaps donning the logo of your favorite character might inspire you to train like an Amazon or become the next Triwizard Champion. (And if not, at least you’ll look awesome doing it!)
