Let’s preface this post by saying, I’m by no means a symbol of workout perfection. The title may be somewhat misleading, because I wouldn’t consider what I’m doing a routine. So if you came here for a legitimate routine, sorry you’ve got the wrong pregnant gal. I wish I was into more of a workout routine, but that’s just life right now, and I’m doing what I can. That being said, staying healthy, eating good food, and remaining active during pregnancy are always a priority on my list.
Today I’m excited to partner with Maidenform to share my pregnancy “workout routine” & chat about their amazing bras with you guys. First of all we all know that “the ladies” grow quite a bit during pregnancy, so they need extra support. It can be super hard to find a supportive bra that you can wear while working out, and I hate feeling “smashed” lol, so the style I’m featuring today is perfect. It provides shape, support, and is super comfy. I actually wear it when I’m not working out too.
If I’m having a good day, and I have the time, I’ll sneak in a quick little work out at home. Usually that involves Noah’s nap time, a Youtube video (I’m a big fan of prenatal yoga & all of the Tone It Up workout videos), and some free weights. I keep it pretty simple, but I like to get a sweat in when I can. When I have to get work done during Noah’s nap time, I make sure to get in a walk after he wakes up. I’ll take Noah to the park, and bring the stroller for walking around my neighborhood afterwards.
I walked so much more during my first pregnancy, because we lived downtown. Now that we live further out I’ve been forcing myself to get out for a neighborhood walk when I can. Unfortunately I’m a lot busier this pregnancy than I was during my last pregnancy, so it can fall to the back burner. Let’s all just take a moment and be thankful for breastfeeding. Totally the fastest way to lose baby weight, lol.
A big part of staying healthy for me during pregnancy is the foods I eat. When at home I generally eat pretty healthy. My husband is a health nut, so this helps keep me in check. If you guys would be interested in learning more about the recipes I’ve been making, or what a typical meal plan looks like for me during the day let me know. I’m not super restrictive, and there’s nothing in general that I just won’t allow myself, but I’m continuously trying to make healthier decisions when it comes to food, even though I totally made pancakes for dinner last night. It’s all about moderation my friends!
