Obviously with each post comes a little story that I’ll be sure to elaborate on later. Of course, I had to take things easy and mainly stick to cardio during at least the first 13 weeks of my pregnancy. Besides the constant fatigue, being nauseous became the new norm for me. Literally at 13 weeks things took a huge turn for the better and for that I am forever thankful.
The beginning as for most Mama’s was pretty rough. My days pretty much consisted of resting as much as possible with VERY frequent trips to the restroom.. (I know, ew!) My diet wasn’t the best especially because everything (besides cake, of course) smelled and looked absolutely the opposite of appetizing.
With smells still bothering me a little bit, outdoor workouts became my new BFF (sorry, Hubs). Now I know with it being Winter working out outdoors seems insane but once you get warmed up, it’s actually quite refreshing.
The workouts I’m about to share with you can go from easy to hard in a matter of seconds. I plan to add individual set of workouts but this post is discussing my favorite “go to” workouts that I just memorized. Feel free to alternate in between them weekly with adding more weights or reps. Always keep a resistance band, yoga mat and sweat towel in your trunk. This makes it super fun and easy to meet up with your friends anywhere and have a nice workout together!
Grab a friend and drag them outside with you, it’s a great way to stay motivated and maybe little competitive.
- Dumbbell Lateral Raises
- Overhead Tricep Extensions
- Front Dumbbell Raises
- Girl Pushups
- Jump Squats
- Donkey Kicks
- Sumo Squats
- Leg Lifts
- Flutter Kicks
- Russian Twist
Of course I know that I’m missing so many great excersise but these are just a few of my favorites. What are your “go to” workouts that you have put together? What is your LEAST favorite exercise that you hate to love? Mine are burpees. EW.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by, see you on the next post.
