My Pregnancy Workouts: 23 to 27 Weeks

IMG_1648.JPGI can’t believe how fast this pregnancy is going! It seems like I was just finishing up my first trimester and here I am starting my third!  I am so excited to meet my baby boy but it seems like there is still so much to do in the weeks that are left.  Thankfully, I still feel great and I completely attribute this to staying active and eating reasonably healthy.  I think I have found a really good balance between working out/eating right and giving myself a little bit of leeway.  For example, I am continuing to get in a minimum of three workouts a week with the exception of the week I was visiting my family in Chicago and the week of Christmas.  Most weeks, I get in 4 or 5 workouts.  As far as eating goes, I just try to eat a variety of foods and get in fruits and veggies throughout the day.  I can’t always eat perfectly especially at work.  I have to have foods that are portable and quick to eat like granola bars, string cheese, and those amazing fruit/veggie pouches that are made for kids! haha But, when I’m able to be at home to cook lunch and dinner I am able to eat more balanced meals.  Even during the holidays I didn’t indulge too much.  I have to thank my baby for not giving me a sweet tooth; I wasn’t tempted by too many candies or cookies during the holidays.  So far I have gained 20 lbs which is right within the healthy range but I still must admit it’s shocking to see my weight on the scale.  I just have to remember that it’s just right for me and my body and my baby.  As long as I continue to exercise and eat well most of the time, I will continue to have a healthy, easy pregnancy.
