So today I am talking fitness! Quite honestly I haven’t worked out much since I have been pregnant, not as often and not nearly as hard as I was before. I believe in being active for mental health as well as physical health and love to be active in some way each day even if while I am pregnant some days it is just taking my dog on a walk and playing with him out back and making sure I park in a far parking spot haha
The #1 thing I get asked to do a post on is my work out so I will be sharing some of my favorite work outs (throughout the year!) and the ones I found most effective (these I did PRE pregnancy) but I will also share pregnancy work outs as I get further into my pregnancy.
This work out I am sharing today may seem a bit silly because they are really simple moves but to me this is what gets me the leanest and most toned. I usually do this work out three times a week:
CARDIO 60 MIN (I usually do 30 min on the bike and 30 on row machine!)
300 LUNGES (If this seems like a lot, start out at 150 like I did and I worked my way up adding about 20 each day. I usually do 25 at a time walking around an indoor track and walk 200 yards in between and your legs are supposed to shake afterwards 🙂 )
300 REPS OF VARIOUS AB EXERCISES (again I know this may seem outrageous if you are just starting to get working out again but just start doing 100 a day and add 15 or 20 each day you do them.) I will do 25 sit ups, 25 air bike, 25 butt ups, 30 second plank (I count as 25 sit ups) and just pick 4 different exercises and rotate between those that day and then the next day rotate a couple different ones into it.
And after that I am beat. On the two days in between I do various arm work outs and work different parts of my body with weights or I do boxing work outs but I will share those work outs another day 🙂
Also music is huge for me in working out, if I can’t find my headphones or something I will not go to the gym until I have them found! It is so motivating for me and sometimes just listening to a certain song can put me in the mood to go do a really good work out so as I do these work out posts I will also share my current playlist!
