Now, I need to be careful not to be vain about it, but I do believe in being healthy and I don’t want to use pregnancy as an excuse to let go of myself and eat whatever cravings come and just do whatever. I want to eat smart and healthy and to workout. I also want to look good for my husband. A child changes your marriage in many ways, but my husband comes first and I want to make sure that I stay fit and trim for him and I have seen lots of motivation and I knows it is possible. At the beginning of my pregnancy I was working out pretty regularly. Lots of zumba and lots of weights. I’m hoping I don’t have to cut down on that and as it gets warmer, I want to go on walks with Levi and I even found a “busy mom’s playground workout” that I am excited to try out this year. :) Plus, not only is it healthy for the baby and yourself, but exercising and staying fit (especially doing ab workouts, though not on your back) make labor so much better!
So, I am excited to continue to workout and stay fit. I didn’t gain a lot of weight pound wise with Levi, but I did gain a lot of fat in areas that I am still struggling with and I’d like to prevent that from happening. I want to be not so concerned with a number on the scale, but the way I look and feel. I feel motivated and excited. :)
