The weeks just seem to be flying by me. We have now officially entered fall. Fall is my favorite time of year. The weather here in NYC has been incredible so far. This stage of my pregnancy has been amazing so far. I have my energy back, my appetite back and the moodiness has gone away. My workouts are now split up a little. I go to the gym and see what I can do in the afternoon but stay for less than hour. Then I go back in the evening with Jon and have a second workout. My stamina is not what it was a few months ago! Here is a look at some of the workouts I have been doing:
400 Rep Leg Day: http://wp.me/p3wWp1-1Rb
Elliptical Leg Sculpt: http://wp.me/p3wWp1-1Q7
Chest/Back and Cardio: http://wp.me/p3wWp1-1Os
With all of this activity, I am glad to say my appetite is back. I am trying not to cave into the cravings. You still can have will power while you are pregnant! Instead of ice cream at night I have switched to eating greek yogurt and I love it. Friday night is ice cream night and I look forward to it! I try to make sure I am getting in all the things that I should be for my pregnancy diet. I have been reading a great book called “Eating for Pregnancy”, this book has been a great help with keeping me on track. Being a first time mom believe me you need an eating guide. I had no idea all of the extra things that I would need to add to my diet that I was not already getting. It also has some great meal ideas and a ton of recipes.
This past week I joined the “What to Expect when you are Expecting” forum. The site has been a great place to visit and I spend quite a bit of time on there. It is a great forum where you can reach out to other moms that are due the same month as you or come from the same city as you. My husband Jon is fantastic but let’s face it he will never be able to understand the things that my body is going though. So it is great to have people to reach out to that are experiencing the same things at the same time. If you are pregnant and have not checked out the site, I recommend you do it today!
