Our hormones are out of wack while pregnant and also while breastfeeding. If you where fit before your pregnancy and continued working out the same during your pregnancy you would have noticed no matter what you did you got softer and lost muscle mass.
Since I first starting posting about our Juicing & results I've been getting a ton of questions so I figured I would write a little note and hopefully answer all the questions for you.
These questions apply for During My 4 day Juice Fast....
Q: Do you eat anything else besides the juices?
A: NO! I did not have any meals except for the juices. I did however snack in between when getting hungry. I snacked on fruits, salads, peanuts (lightly salted or unsalted), cashews & cucumbers in Lemon. Just don’t over do the snacking.... and drink plenty of water.
Its time to Combat Cellulite…
There are a few steps to take to help dramatically reduce the appearance of cellulite.
I for one had cellulite so I know how difficult it can be and I am also a living proof that these steps will work. I've had too many people say you can’t get rid of cellulite but I can guarantee that you can dramatically reduce it by following these 4 steps…
This Baby Bump Video is a little different...
I wanted to do a little video on my leg workout routine. I’m currently 35 weeks pregnant. To be honest I did go down in weights more and more as I progressed into the pregnancy. I like to keep it safe and feel comfortable so these workouts are meant to maintain what I have, I’m not doing them to build muscle. I’ll leave the goal setting for after the baby arrives.
I was asked about my pregnancy workout routine so here it is, btw I'll have my back and arms up shortly as well this is only my current leg routine. ( I say current bc you should be changing it up, less weight more reps or less reps more weight)
WHATS NEW WITH THE BABY
Baby is getting pretty big and it seems she’s running out of space. I also feel a lot of pressure and lately she has been hitting my hip bones. I cant say for sure that’s a sign of her coming but it sure is uncomfortable.
HOW I FEEL
I feel great besides the whole can’t move very well and I’m out of breath just by taking a shower, applying lotion or even dressing myself.
I’m getting a lot of creamy discharge which scares me at times because it comes out in bursts and I’m like “OMG did my water just break” lol…
WHATS HAPPENING WITH THE BABY:
She now weighs two full pounds, She can hear fully and now reacts to light, noise and pain. They also say she can cry now.
WHATS HAPPENING WITH YOU:
This is the last week of the 2nd trimester so next week I'll be entering my 7 months and 3rd trimester.
I'm feeling the extra weight now, my lower back is starting to bother me and sleeping is much more difficult. I wake up sore and its hard to move. I almost always wake up with back pain which subsides as I get moving.
My rib cage hurts and feels bruised and so do my sides.
They say that stretchmarks start around this time so be extra careful about applying your coco butter as well as not over eating in one sitting. I find it to be really uncomfortable if I eat too much in one sitting.
STAYING FIT WHILE PREGNANT:
I'm a very fit person. I've been working out for years and I get this same question every time I post a photo of me working out. "Are you supposed to be doing that while pregnant"? or "you should be resting and eating".
Now it doesn't upset me to be ask these questions or be told I need to eat more but it more frightens me because that means most women are just sitting ducks during their pregnancy, afraid to move and hurt their baby.
You only need 300 extra calories when your pregnant (when you think about it that's not really a lot so take the idea of eating for 2 out of your head because this will only harm your body.
