F is for Fit

Hello! Welcome to my seventh attempt at the April AtoZ blogging challenge. My theme this year is Experiences of a first time grandmother! Some sweet some not so sweet moments and learnings! My posts are totally based on what I felt (may even border on rants) and are not meant to be a guide. 

 am sure my thoughts may cause a deja vu to some of you especially someone who has hosted a newborn! I would love to hear from you!

Is that a surprising topic from me? 
Well, grandmom has to be fit to look after her babies right? She is also managing her own household and job (if she is working), so staying fit is of utmost importance.

Its important to have strong, fully mobile and painfree knees.. As also to have a strong back and shoulders. Bending and straightening and lifting happens all the time and a catch or stiffness can really make things difficult. 

With a newborn infant at home, time is at a premium. I cashed in on fitness acquired by a regular regimen over several months.  Whenever I could, I did Yoga and Suryanamaskar (Sun Salutations). 

What has been your experience? 
See you tomorrow folks!

  1. Fully agree with kid around – Fitness of elders is prime. Being a mother of 2.5 year old toddler- I experience it each day. There are no Slow days -when infant/ toddlers around.

    Happy Grandparenting. Love- Blessings to your Grandchild 🙂

  2. Not a grandparent yet, but yes, totally agree. Painfree knees are number one priority with infants and toddlers around. My preferred method is walking – with the kid when he was in the stroller, and solo now that he's outgrown it. Great F word! 🙂

  3. Fitness is important for everyone, especially with babies to manage. Stay safe. Stay fit. Take care. 🙂
