Every since I got knocked up, my fitness level has dropped significantly. I went from training for a half marathon, Insanity workouts, watching my eating habits to very little yoga and some walking. I was really hoping to get in some fitness routine in my schedule but lacked the energy to do so. I started out pretty well walking/running/swimming during the first part of my second trimester but got really lazy starting in August. Maybe it’s the heat, or the lack of a good night’s sleep or being busy at work.
As I’m starting my 3rd trimester, I know that I need to keep up some sort of routine so that labor and delivery is easy, especially if I plan to go drug free. I’ve been trying to squeeze in some yoga here and there, but I really need to combine cardio and yoga and weight training into my schedule (without overdoing it of course).
Anyhow, I know life will be completely different after the baby arrives, but I’m excited about getting back into shape. My plan after getting the all clear from the doctor is to start running again and doing some light workouts. I’m hoping that within a few months I can start going to a Crossfit gym. It actually looks fun and doable (and scary at the same time). Here’s a video explaining what Crossfit is all about.
