During my second trimester of pregnancy I’ve had a hard time staying in shape. Working out is slightly more difficult because I have to make sure I am keeping Rosalie (pictured above) and myself safe with my work outs. I used to do lots of crunches, leg lifts and other work outs lying flat on back which of course is not recommended. I also used to spend a day at the skate park or longboard for a night to keep off my extra body fat, but that is something I can no longer do by doctors request. So I’ve had to change it up a little, I started today with a Denise Austin Fit & Firm Pregnancy video. At first I was thinking this is way too easy, but by the end I felt my heart pumping without being short of breath which is exactly where my doctor wants me after a workout. I loved how she would stop in-between a change of workouts and remind you to breathe, which sounds silly but when I work out I sometimes forget. I plan to look up more of her videos and try to fit some cardio in each day.
