Yoga and Chutes & Ladders

Yesterday, (Monday)consisted of a 45 min yoga workout from Comcast’s On Demand Elise Gulan Yoga Fitness Plus  http://www.exercisetv.tv/workout-videos/body-sculpting/yoga-fitness-plus-5448 I love this yoga workout, very effective and it’s somewhat free! How does this get combined with the Chutes & Ladders game? Well with 10mins left to go, Ethaniel wants to feed and Alexandra (2yr old) wants to play a game. So there I sit on my yoga mat with the workout on pause, breastfeeding and playing a game of Chutes & Ladders. After completion of both, I finished my last 10mins, a very determined mom with happy little ones.

Weight:
Ethaniel was born on June 29th, Monday, so I weigh myself every Monday. I lost 17 lbs within the first 3-4 weeks (including the actual birth weight).  I have not lost weight in the last 4 wks or so. Yes, this is very frustrating. However, I am losing measurements so this keeps me motivated. I have been doing monthly body measurments for the last six years. So I can compare last postpartum pregnancy to this one and I can compare how I am doing from birth until now. Next measurements will take place next Monday. So we’ll see how it’s going then and I will explain how my weight finally dropped in my first postpartum experience. Will the same happen this time around?

What are the benefits to singing in a Mom & Baby Pilates/Yoga Class?

Singing to your baby:

  • Expands tonal and word vocabulary
  • Teaches facial expressions
  • Helps your baby feel safe, relaxed, and calm
  • Increases positive fun energy
  • Offers another way to show love and to give attention to your baby
  • Strengthens your baby’s immune system, and mom’s too
  • Improves baby’s and mom’s mood

Also, research shows that repeating the same songs on a regular basis builds baby’s confidence level and builds her vocabulary level at a faster pace.

Don’t worry about how your voice sounds, just sing! 🙂
