After lots of research I have finally completed a training plan that The Bump and I can both agree on! Well…that remains to be seen I guess! The Bump decides most things these days, as he/she will once they arrive.
I most likely will not be able to do all of this every day, but at least I have a plan that I can follow and some options to choose from. I love having options and it will really depend on the day, and how I feel. I have been active pre-pregnancy and intend on staying active through my pregnancy. I will not use The Bump as an excuse to not workout. I’ve not gained any weight as I enter week 9, which is great. And I’d like not to pack on the pounds as the months go on. But most of that depends on the eating part…as I sit here with a Kit-Kat Bar and ruffle chips and Top The Tater sour cream…
I do allow myself a few indulgences a week, but mostly because I denied myself them for so long that I feel like I deserve a reward! I do however eat very healthy generally but The Bump calls for sweets and junk that I don’t normally buy and I need to start saying no again. I know once I start buying soda that it’s all gone to hell. But that will not happen.
I spent a long time getting my metabolism humming along and I’d like to keep it that way. I said goodbye to that nasty number on the scale last January, and I do not intend on seeing it again…unless by some awesome miracle I am growing not one but two humans, it won’t appear on the scale again.
Did you stay active while +1? Did you have favorite workouts? Tips or advice to share?
