Getting back on track during pregnancy!
Monday, February 20, 2012
For the last few months I have not been focused on exercising but on my pregnancy. I am now 20 weeks + 3 days... so I have made it to the half way point. I'm excited to meet this little man, but at the moment I don't like the effects he has had on my body.
For the first 16 weeks I did not gain any weight, but over these last 4 weeks I have gained almost 10 lbs, YIKES! So I feel it's time to dust off my treadmill and get walking!
I've noticed that I've been getting winded just going for short walks, and I really want to rebuild my endurance. Doing this will help with the labor process to come & help me to bounce back after pregnancy. I am also going to add in some pre-natal yoga to keep my workouts more interesting.
I am also going to set a goal of drinking 64+ oz of water a day and limiting junk food.
I've had a great first pregnancy so far, but I'm tired of being lazy and I just want to do something good for me & baby!
