First postpartum workout

Yesterday I did my first postpartum workout.  I've climbed twice but hadn't ventured into the weight room.  I tried to keep it pretty simple and take it easy so I wouldn't hurt myself.  I did:

3 rounds of:

10 pull-ups
10 push-ups
10 kettlebell deadlifts 24 kg
10 each arm kettlebell strict press 8 kg

then

25 air squats

I didn't time it, just worked through it slowly.  I can't do pull-ups again yet, so I used bands, and the push-ups were not great.  But it felt good to get back to doing something. I've had about two months off, and I've lost a lot of strength, not to mention some weird things happened to my core muscles.  So it will take some time to get back to where I was.  Slow and steady, and I'll get there!  I'm sore today, but it feels good.
