Belly shot after last nights walk. I want to take advantage of the little time I have left with her in my belly.
It has been three months since I have last hit the gym. I am finally feeling up to exercising or so I think I am. I know how important exercise is during pregnancy but I found it impossible up until now. I could barely keep a cracker down much less drop a squat. Now that I am starting to feel pretty good during the evenings (mornings and early afternoons are still dealt with battling morning sickness) I decided that I would use this time to exercise. There are loads of benefits to staying active such as a faster and easier delivery (no guarantees, though), healthier baby, more energy, and your body will bounce back faster after childbirth. I don't know about you, but I am pretty fond of my pre-pregnancy pants. Plus, it keeps the weight gain to a minimum so you feel less like a beached whale. I plan on working out daily (although that might be an aggressive statement right now) and will post my routines.
I wanted to ease into it last night since it has been a while so it's a pretty simple workout mostly focused on cardio.
Always consult with your doc before starting any exercise program. You never want to put you or the babe at risk.
