Still working out?

I'm so exhausted. I do yoga in mornings and try and walk in evenings but that's even getting hard after teaching 1st grade all day. Is anyone else able to workout this late?

Re: Still working out?

  • I'm walking at night but that is about it.



  • I am doing my pregnancy workout comes out to about 25 min and it is with weights. I walk in the neighborhood when I can but it gives me BH.

  • I'm trying to stay active. I do yoga but I cut out one of my classes this week because it was too intense and am just doing prenatal now. I take kickboxing once a week still and go for walks or swim. It's definitely fewer days a week now, though. Everything is just harder. 
  • I've been trying to walk a couple times a week, but it's been really hard due to all the pressure. I ordered a support band and was able to walk about a mile over the weekend, but then my back hurt so bad from the walk that I was achy for 2 days. 

    I'd been keeping up with swimming 3-4 times a week, but took a hiatus the past 2 weeks b/c I've been so tired. I'm actually planning to go tomorrow before work, if I can get myself up in time. I'm definitely swimming laps Saturday before DD's swim lesson. So, at least there's that.

  • Still doing yoga but not as much as I would like. I do 2/3 classes a week and home practice every day, even if it's just for a few minutes before bed. Walking when I can but it's been too hot the last few days. Swimming when I can, hoping to make a swim class on Friday!

    It's quite hard to get motivated and even just moving around is exhausting. Just trying to keep my flexibility and endurance up for labor :)

    I'm walking several times a week and doing yoga once a week.   Some days the walks are quite laughable.

  • I'm just walking 3-4 days a week now. I'm just so tired most days and I feel really clumsy.

    Ugh- I just can't do it!
    I walk at work and tell myself that counts. But between feeling the lightning bolt pain and the heaviness- it's tough!!!

    I admire all of you :-)

  • I'm still doing spin 2 - 3 days per week and one yoga class on Saturdays...but it takes a lot of effort to get there now! My OB says it will make delivery easier, so here's hoping!

    I'm still doing 2-3 Walk at Home workouts, for a total of about 5 miles per week. Lame. I was doing 8-10 miles a week up till about 20w, and it gradually dropped off from there. But I'm trying to stay active during the day, doing housework and taking DS out when I can, so at least that counts for something.

    I was obese and inactive to start with, and I literally did nothing but sleep and sit on the couch when I was pregnant with DS 2.5 yrs ago, so I'm still proud of myself for doing anything at all and for keeping it up throughout this entire pregnancy.

    Working out, what's that?? Seriously, Dd1 and I went to meet DH for lunch this week. We took our time to get there stoping at the park and the playground. On the way home I walked straight home pushing the stroller. I have never been so exhausted from a short 0.8 mile walk ever. I think it took 40 min to get home, yikes. It was all I could do to push DD up the hill for the last 3 blocks before home.

  • I stopped going to kickboxing last week. I still do prenatal yoga, long walks (2-3 miles), and I ran 2 miles on Sunday. The pressure on my pelvic area is just so uncomfortable at times. I'm trying to keep up my activity level because I know its good for me and baby & will help recovery time.

  • Walking is all I have left and even that is forced on some days.

  • I'm doing yoga (prenatal now the regular class was just to much) and chasing my three year old at the park and the beach. Yesterday on the walk back from the beach I thought I was on the last mile of a marathon and it is less than a half mile there, so so sad.

  • I've been doing Zumba 2-3 times a week all along until last week. Now I can't find the motivation to do anything. I'm hoping having done all that Zumba will still help in speeding my recovery, even though I'm being lazy these last few weeks (doctor's orders!).
