Ever since I had Penny, I have really struggled to go to the gym regularly. It’s damn near impossible for me to wake up early enough to workout, get her ready, get me ready, then drop her off at daycare before heading to work. After work? FORGET IT! So, I recently tried my hand at going during lunch and it has actually been going well!!! Obviously, time is a factor so I try to keep the workouts at 30 minutes so I have enough time to get there, change and come back (round trip, it takes me about 1 hour and 20 minutes). In order to make this work, I try to go at least 4 days and I do 2 days of just cardio and 2 days of a tough 30 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) set. Here is what I’ve done the last several days:
Thursday/Friday of last week: 30 minute AMRAP of the below
Monday: Cardio only – 15 minutes on elliptical, 15 minutes on treadmill
Tuesday: I did this [HARD] leg & butt workout from Pumps and Iron (note: I could only do it once through so I added some abs at the end instead)
Wednesday: I failed my 1 hour glucose test so I had to do the 3 hour test this day…naturally, I skipped the gym since I felt completely dehydrated and awful ALL DAY.
Thursday (today): Pumps and Iron came through for me again with this arms/core workout
Friday: I plan on doing cardio, probably the elliptical and stair master
This pregnancy has allowed me to workout uninterrupted which is nice. When I was pregnant with Penny, I had a low-lying placenta so I wasn’t able to workout for a large portion of my pregnancy. This time around has been much more stress-free! CHEERS TO THAT! However, I will say that I think I am larger this time around…
This is me at 28 weeks when I was pregnant with Penny:
Me at 28 weeks right now:
On second thought, after looking at it on the same page, I guess I’m not really that much bigger lol. Sorry about the black and white picture but I had to do that so I would look less haggard.
That’s all I’ve got for now but here are a couple Penny pics because she’s my favorite
