A set of light weights, check. Yoga mat, check. Exercise DVD, check. Maternity exercise attire, check! This fine Saturday I am one happy pregnant momma. Let me explain…
Since finding out about our little man I have become highly intrigued by the world of fitness. This interest is not in an effort to remain a certain size, but simply to make sure I am doing all I can to keep myself taken care of in order to care for our little guy. I have read article after article of ladies running half-marathons and other incredible feats late into their pregnancy. I was not even doing that before pregnancy, let alone now! Instead, my goal is simply to maintain.
I exercised prior to pregnancy and I hope to continue along the same route throughout the next few months. I am telling you what, my entire outlook on the day changes drastically after a good 30 minutes of cardio and about 10 minutes of strength training; not to mention, putting on some fun exercise clothes and movin’ a bit helps me not feel as though my stomach is taking over my body. A month or two ago I stumbled across For Two Fitness on Facebook.
This page has become one of my favorite places to visit lately. I love seeing pictures of momma’s working hard and fitting fitness into their lives, pregnant and all. Not to mention they have the cutest exercise tops I have ever seen! A few weeks ago Trey surprised me with a gift card to For Two Fitness. And to my surprise, my new tops arrived yesterday!
I love love love love my new gear! Thank you Trey for the special treat! As my body is changing, my t-shirts and shorts are simply not cutting it anymore. My new tops are incredibly comfortable and they hug just right throughout my entire work out. Not only do they feel great, but I am a sucker for the baby feet on the belly. They are a wonderful reminder that my workouts are for more than me! Power Walks and What to Expect When You’re Expecting: The Workout DVD are my go to places for my daily “sweating for two” time.
What did you do/are doing as you prepared physically to welcome your little’s into the world? I gladly welcome any suggestions!
