Now almost 4 months into this pregnancy, I am SO excited and enjoying every moment of it. As many know my last pregnancy resulted in a bed rest prescription only a few months in. This time I have been taking full advantage of being healthy and able to workout, and move around a kitchen to create yummy clean meals for the whole family to enjoy!
A few things I have been doing this pregnancy is:
Train with FRIENDS: when you are tired, or nauseous, working out is usually the last thing on your mind. The one thing I have found helped so far is scheduling work outs with my girl friends. I still get out a good sweat session, and have some fun one on one chat time, which helps the day go by!
Eat Clean, but don't focus on lean: I am still a huge advocate of eating clean meals and cooking all our families foods, however with a baby in my belly I ensure that I am not reverting to dieting habits of large portions of proteins. I enjoy a variety of fruits and veggies and snacks. I add in fresh squeezed juices and stay far away from any thing which could harm the bubba
Sharing everything with our toddler: My son is a little man of wisdom and wonder, and asks why everything is, the way it is in the world. So I am just ensuring to enjoy and revel in each day I am pregnant and sharing with him the excitement of my growing belly, visits to the midwife, and helping me cook good food to help the baby grow!
