Baby Bumps And Barbells: How To Stay Fit When You’re Pregnant
.

 

As long as all is well, there are no complications, and your doctor gives you the go ahead…there is no reason to NOT continue working out as you have before. You will obviously have to modify a few things along the way.

You don’t have to “eat for two”–you only need an extra 300-400 calories per day.

You don’t have to “take it easy” (if the pregnancy is uncomplicated)–you can continue your fitness routine with modifications.

 

My goal is to be as healthy, strong & energetic throughout pregnancy as I can manage. It’s best for the baby, and will make pregnancy & childbirth easier for me!

About Kat

If I had to choose one word to describe myself, it would be eclectic. I like a little bit of everything and I do a little bit of everything. :) Some of my current favorite things to do are: spend time with my husband and daughters, work my home based business (http://rippedwraps.myitworks.com), play with makeup and nail polish, work out (pilates, Jillian Michaels DVDs & pole dance/fitness), play Halo Reach & Zombies (COD) on xbox 360, living on the lake & blogging! I love my family more than life itself...and I will guard and protect them with my life. I've also learned to start standing up for myself (thanks to one of my mentors!) and tell people to back off when they try to hurt me or my family. My childhood abuse no longer defines me, thanks to my Savior Jesus Christ...and as a result of giving ALL parts of my life to Him, I have more peace and joy than I can ever remember having!
