Pregnancy Exercises You CAN Do

I don’t know why pregnant women think they can’t or shouldn’t exercise.

Exercise is the BEST thing pregnant women can do to ensure a happy, strong and healthy pregnancy.  

There are so many benefits to exercising when pregnancy.  

Here are a few:

  • Decreased aches and pains.
  • Decreases excess weight gain.
  • Decrease of chance of gestational diabetes.
  • Easier and shorter labor and delivery.
  • Better sleep.
  • Get in pre-pregnancy shape faster.
  • More energy.

I mean, you are crazy not to exercise when your pregnant.  Plus, there are so many exercises and workouts you can do and you can even do them from home.

You can do pregnancy exercises with weights or with cans or water bottles.

I worked out 5 times a week during my pregnancy, it was my sanity.  I did my Fit Mom-To-Be Workouts 3 times a week and did cardio 2-3 times a week.  I only gained 20 lbs and I was 2 lbs under pre-pregnancy weight the first time I weighed myself (3 weeks postpartum).  And I had tons of energy, never had aches and pains and felt amazing!

I hope you do too!  Its worth it to invest some time and resources into your body and health during pregnancy.

I also want to encourage you to make healthy choices when eating.

I know you are probably a little frustrated like most pregnant women, because your OB hasn’t educated you much on Pregnancy Nutrition.

It’s actually quite frustrating for me…….

Aside from giving you a list of foods you should NOT eat, and weighing you in every week, that is pretty much it.  And it’s insane because what you eat doesn’t just affect YOU!   It affects the baby as well.

Its very easy to say “you have to slow down with your weight gain”, but not give you any tools or resources to help you.

But you have to control what you eat and not use this pregnancy as an excuse to “Eat For 2”.  I mean you don’t by any means have to diet.  I certainly didn’t and I did allow myself some splurges.  I would eat a bagel a week which I normally don’t when I’m not pregnant, I usually stick to oatmeal which I love.  But you just have to make GOOD CHOICES.  You should want to anyways because everything you are eating now is affecting your little baby.  So make good choices girlfriend.

So here is what I’m going to do for you.  I’m going to give you a NUTRITION GUIDE with exactly what to eat, all the RECIPES, good SNACK OPTIONS, etc.  So that you can get an idea of how you should be eating during your pregnancy so that you can be healthy, be creating the best possible environment for your baby, and so that you don’t gain EXCESS WEIGHT so that you are not super uncomfortable all during pregnancy and feeling huge and self conscious.  And so that you can lose all your baby weight fast postpartum.

I made this 2-Week Nutrition Guide to give away for FREE to all my pregos because I work with so many in my Fit Mom-To-Be Workout Program that always have so many NUTRITION questions.  So, I figured I would make this in an easy to read, print and follow way to help you take the guesses out of how to eat optimally during your pregnancy.  

If you follow it and you EXERCISE, you will not just have a great pregnancy but you will feel CONFIDENT, RADIENT, GLOWING.  You won’t be uncomfortable and have aches and pains because you’ve gained so much weight.  You will have an easier labor and delivery.  You will sleep better, have more energy.  And you will seriously decrease your chances of falling into POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION.

If you exercise moderately and safely, you will be able to lose your weight super fast postpartum.  I did!

I did My Fit Mom-To-Be Workouts from the moment I found out I was pregnant until the day before I went into labor and I felt amazing, only gained 20lbs and lost 22lbs within 3 weeks of having my baby.  

Exercising during pregnancyalso helps you speed and ease delivery.  Isn’t that the best news you’ve gotten all day?  My labor was less than 4 hours and I pushed for about 10 minutes.  Thank goodness for those workouts.  Check out what this woman said about my Pregnancy Fit-Mom Workouts.
