Hello my friends,
Can you believe we are in the last trimester for this pregnancy? I’m not sure where the time went, but it went!
So, let’s recap my trimester 2 fitness!
In trimester 1 I was much more scheduled with my workouts. However, when trimester 2 rolled around we were in the midst of working towards finalizing the purchase of our condo and the final preparations for our week volunteering at a children’s camp for a week. So, my fitness routine slipped away.
I did keep up with exercise a few times a week and did activities such as:
– chasing my two girls ( 2 & 1)
– going to the zoo
– going to Disney
Although I have gained the most during this pregnancy, I’ve still only gained 8 pounds total and am well within the weight gain goals my doctor and I discussed at the beginning of this pregnancy.
It’s hard for me to see the scale numbers rise, mostly because from 2012 – 2013 (pre-pregnancy with baby number 1) I worked so hard to get my health in order and lost around 70 pounds!
Each pregnancy is a journey, and I’m thankful for the gift of life growing inside my belly and little girl, YOU are worth every ounce of weight, every swollen ankle, every discomfort because YOU are a treasure!
Question of the day: what are your favorite ways to sneak exercise into a busy day?
