Mommies to be have Fitness Resolutions too!
Happy New Year! We are halfway through January and if you’ve been taking the time to get in your workouts in, you deserve a fist bump. In my current state, I’m handing out “fitbumps” to all my fit pregnancy mommas to be. This weeks pregnancy workout was fueled by my upcoming vacation to Hawaii. I love getting the bump out in the sun, but the back, arms, legs and buns need some fitness love to help this momma feel confident in a bikini!
First-Up: a little Bun Run
I always try to get in some cardio. Easier said than done some days, but a two mile run is ideal. Speaking of running, I had a talk with some mommy friends about not being able to run post-baby without peeing on yourself. Luckily I haven’t experienced that yet! Fingers crossed everything stays put after baby boy comes in May.
After a good warm-up run, with a few breaks to catch my breath, I start right into my full body workout.
Even mommies to be have new years fitness resolutions. Let’s get these Fitbumps! Join me for pregnancy workouts every Friday.
Pregnancy Workout – 4 sets of 20 reps
- Good Mornings
- Banded squat side-steps with a lateral raise
- Straight leg standing leg-raises (20 on each leg)
- Push-ups (admittedly, I only have about 7-10 in me before I drop to my knees, but nobody’s here to judge)
- Elevator lunges (20 on each leg)
Be sure to hydrate! I love my Hydroflask for keeping drinks ice cold until the very end of my workout.
So Mommas, what are some of your favorite ways to stay in shape while creating a human?
Happy Baby Making!
