How my #fitpregnancy is going


Before getting pregnant I knew that, if possible, I wanted to make sure I stayed as active as I could through out my pregnancy.  I am 29 weeks and I am very happy to say that I have stayed very active throughout the past 7 months.  I had no idea how I would handle pregnancy this time around since everyone is so different and every pregnancy is so different.  I have noticed my energy levels drop dramatically and moving around has become more difficult with a big belly.  I know that exercising isn't going to make me smaller, but it sure makes me feel better.  For the first 28 weeks, I was making it a goal to walk 5 miles a day.  I was usually hitting that goal 4-6x a week.  I have been going with a group of ladies in my neighborhood to the high school track near my house which has made the time when I go much more enjoyable.  I won't lie, I do miss my running life, but I know it will be back.  

This past week I decided it was time to reduce my goal down to 4 miles a day.  I am definitely feeling tired more frequently and I figured reducing my goal might help with that.  I was trying to see how long I could go with that 5 mile goal, but listening to my body was more important.  If you are interested in purchasing a fitbit, I highly recommend it! Since the day I bought it, I have used mine every single day.  It keeps me very motivated to hit my goal and it's very fun to see how active I am each day.  

I've been asked if my weight gain from pregnancy has been avoided from being so active.  I stopped weighing myself around 20 weeks because I knew it was inevitable that I was going to gain weight.  I didn't want to keep that from enjoying my pregnancy and not being a stress case over every time I step on the scale.  I think I have gained around 20-25 lbs which I am completely okay with.  I know once I have this baby, I will get back into my regular swing of things and I will work hard to get back to my previous weight.

  1. I love reading about your approach to pregnancy. Good idea on not weighing yourself. I'm almost 18 weeks with my first and have been weighing myself weekly, but as I see that number creep up maybe it's time to cut back!
