I can’t believe this guy was such a hunk of chunk two years ago!
100acresofsycamore well up until last week I was doing spin class which I looooved because it was low impact & really kicked my butt! I would alternate it with the elliptical, because they don’t have the class every day, and often would do squats with weights after, or a short arm work out.
Since the baby descended though, lifting my legs has become really uncomfortable & my pelvis is really sore haha AND my belly is so big that my knees hit it constantly when I’m on the bike! Plus I’ve been feeling like I should be doing things that utilize gravity more to get the baby into the correct position. So today I literally just walked on the treadmill for three miles! At this point in pregnancy I’m not so much worried about getting a good work out as I am worried about keeping my body conditioned and aligned for (hopefully!!) an easy birth. I also did squats after I walked.
I hadn’t been to the gym in like a week because Kieran was exposed to a kid with hand foot and mouth disease, and I was quarantining him just in case! Getting back to the gym felt sooooo good. The past week I’ve been having to ice down my hips/back/bump constantly, but right now everything feels so much better! Also endorphins man. I’ve had genuinely a really easy pregnancy this go around which wasn’t the case with Kieran, and honestly I credit it 100% with being more active.
My gym attire, loaded up with ice packs… No shame
