Life as a preggo trainer

It has been a while since I have written ands it’s long overdue(which will hopefully not be the case for my baby which should be here in June:)).  I use to get a tremendous amount of questions about how to get and stay fit, but now(being 27 weeks pregnant with my first child) its about how to do that while pregnant.  Pregnancy is one of those things in life that you hear so much about but you don’t completely understand until you go through it.  So I plan to start writing more about all I have learned and more importantly experienced throughout this special time. 

Since I found out back in September that we were expecting, things have been…let’s just say different.  Starting at about week 6, the naussea was here in full force.  Lucky for me it wasn’t to the point where I would puke on a daily basis. I feel so sorry for some of you ladies that have a to vomit as soon as your eyes open in the morning. But the one thing that truly helped me feel better was to workout. Throughout this process, I have been able to keep up my workouts for the most part. Prepregnancy I would workout 5 times a week 45 minutes per day and run 15-20 miles per week. Now I am doing 3 to 4 times per week 30-45 minutes and about 7-10 miles a week. I have gained 25lbs so far and feeling great going into my 3rd trimester. I can’t believe she will be here in a few short months! I will keep you all posted on my progress, as well as, pics and workouts to follow.
