Pretzle is back!
Pretzle posted a topic in Rebel Introductions and the Respawn PointHi NF! So, I was a regular way back in 2012-2013 but have since moved on to other fitness paths. But then I got an email about this great deal for the academy and guess what, I'm back! I'm now 29 (almost 30) and mom to a GREAT 17 month old boy (whom we named after a character from the Dune series. Talk about nerdy!). Unfortunately, I now have diastasis recti (BOO!!!) which means my core strength is not what it used to be AND I have to be really careful about certain exercises (no more crunches ever, but not sad about that Anything front loading that puts too much pressure on my stomach has to be built towards very, very slowly. Which is frustrating! I want to do my planks and push-ups again!). As a mom I'm way more tired, have less time to exercise (yay for 20 minute strength workouts!) and oh, I'm also still breastfeeding my son (go super mom!) and I can't really keep up with my calorie needs. I'm still pretty active in general, too - cycle to and from work 20-minutes each way twice a week, and lots more cycling as we don't have a car (or license). Lots of walking and chores etc. In any case, I'm looking forward to jumping back in, both here and with the academy materials. I still love being fit and nerdy things, so I have a feeling I'll fit right (back) in. Any familiar faces around?
