A lot of women don’t workout during pregnancy because they don’t feel good, they don’t have enough energy, time…..
It’s hard…. at least when you think of a workout having to be 60-90 minutes like most people do.
But here’s the thing.
You don’t need a super long arduous workout in order to see really good results.
Actually as long as you do the right kind of workout and you do 3 good ones per week, and they progress appropriately….. it doesn’t matter how long they are.
That should get you a little more motivated.
You can seriously get some really good results…… you just need to be consistent.
I can’t tell you how many times I am running late and think about skipping a workout, but I don’t…. and I get a really great workout in… and I’m always so glad I did it.
Because guess what? Even a 10 minute workout is better than no workout at all.
When I was pregnant with my second, I felt super sick the first trimester.
It was super hard to get a workout in, but I still drove my tired, sick butt to the gym…. just to not lose the habit.
Some days were bad and I would push through a 15 minute workout.
Other days I felt better and I would get a 30 minute workout.
Until finally one day, I was able to make it through a 45-60 minute workout.
I still made improvements the whole time because I never gave up.
Also, its sooooo hard to “START OVER”.
STARTING is what’s hard.
So if you can continue to workout through your pregnancy, it will be easier to get in shape postpartum because it will be part of your lifestyle to exercise.
I talk about this in more detail in the video below as well as what the best kind of workouts are for pregnancy.
So check it out.
I know its hard to find and make time to listen to all the content.
What I do is I save links in my notes in my phone of blogs or articles or podcasts I want to listen to and when I’m driving or cooking or have some down time, or even when I exercise, I listen to them.
Hope this helps you and motivates you to exercise more consistently because the changes you can make to your body and how you feel are really amazing.
Here is an example short workout you can do in 10-15 minutes.
