Favorite Prenatal Exercises and More!

Exercise and healthy eating can seem hard to do, and so much harder when you're pregnant.  I have been craving dark chocolate like a mad woman (and haven't given in eeeeevery time!).  But this is one of the best times to change habits for the healthier and start of your child's life right!

Prenatal Fitness
I TRY to workout at least 3 times a week, I find that if I wait until later in the day I am too tired to attempt a workout of any sort.  I am still pretty exhausted this time around, even in the second trimester, so I haven't been setting my alarm to get up before the girls, which is why it's a bit hit-and-miss right now.  But when I do workout I love these (short and free) youtube videos.  Yoga and weight training: My YouTube Prenatal Playlist.  I also try and walk either on the the treadmill or in the evenings with a friend.  Strengthening your core, back, legs (and arms for carrying your little one) can really help with 3rd trimester discomfort, labor and recovery.

Prenatal Eating
I know I'm a bit weird, but I actually LOVE eating healthy foods.  I love finding healthy recipes for ice cream (Banana Ice Cream), or cookies (Raw Almond Bars or Baked Wonton Cookies) and sometimes just taking a normal recipe and switching some of the ingredients out for healthier alternatives.  I really enjoy smoothies (PB Chocolate or Green Delicious Smoothie), because they are a great way to get extra vitamins, protein, etc., and still taste great!
My biggest push for myself right now is NO SODA (here are a few healthy alternatives), limited sugar (Stevia, Truvia or Agave are great substitutes), and snacking on as much raw food as possible (aka Fruits and Veggies)!!  Lastly, drink water!  I am trying to drink half of my body weight in water every day (example: 130lbs = 65oz of water).  Here are some fun ideas I posted earlier for healthy snacks and making your water a little more enjoyable.

Some of my favorite Fitness and Nutrition Links

Remember, it's important to take care of yourself and one of the most important ways to do that is to REST! Always follow your doctors orders, take your vitamins, get a little fresh air each day and only do what feels comfortable to your growing and changing body.  And for all those women like me who really miss your waist line and sometimes don't find your new body "glowing" and "sexy," remember -you are wonderfully made.  Read this or watch this if you need a little reminder.
