My Personal Pregnancy Fitness Faves

As you’ve probably read in my About Me section, I am expecting my first little munchkin in October 2016. Being from Louisiana (and still visiting quite frequently), I’ve realized how easy it can be to fall into the “I can eat everything I want to now” trap. Believe me, EVERYONE will want to feed you once they find out you are with child. Lol! Auntie, Grandma, Mommy, Mr. Johnnie from the corner store, will all offer meals on top of meals to aid in the growth of your little angel. If you were so kindly raised to believe that it is just rude to reject anything being offered (like myself), this post is for you. I’ve scoured Pinterest and the internet to find workouts tailored to us Mums-to-be to help us stay toned during ‘baking season.’

  1. So that’s why I was dreamin about a fish in the hotel room in Atlanta. Huh? LOL Congratulations! I think this blog is a great idea. I’m looking for more writing and more thoughts from you.


  2. Hey girl, love your blog 🙂 I try to work out 4-5 days a week and before getting pregnant with daughter I did the bikini body guided by Kayla Itsines. I still do her leg workouts and modify when necessary. I also still lift weights with my husband and modify there as well. I’m currently 32 weeks and it’s been incredible to see what our bodies can do! Congrats to you!


    1. Thank you! How awesome is that!!! I’d love to see your progress. I’m going to start posting more about my growth. I’m almost 24 weeks. I’d like to get these arms and legs firmed up too! Lol. Yes, our bodies are magical!
