Re: Exercise/Fitness Check-in - January

  • 1: How far along are you?  26w 1d

    2: How was December for you fitness-wise? It was good. I missed a bunch of my classes being out of town but I picked them right up when we got back in town and have added prenatal yoga to the mix. 

    3: What are your goals for the week/month ahead? To go to yoga at least twice a week + continue my bi-weekly strength training class, and walk the dog everyday 

    4: How are you going to treat yourself this week/celebrate your body and its accomplishments? Honestly the yoga classes have been such a wonderful celebration of all the work I've put in with strength training. Doing a different exercise is showing me how much strength I've gained and that makes me really proud. 

    5: Rants/Raves/Questions/Anything else you want to add? Just that it's hard to find good quality maternity exercise pants...I did find some make-do yoga pants at my yoga studio so that's good but still annoying not have a ton of options.

    1: How far along are you?  27 weeks 5 days

    2: How was December for you fitness-wise?it was pretty good. Hit the gym a lot

    3: What are your goals for the week/month ahead?  Figuring out what works for me. I just started cramping every time I run, within a minute, so that's a big bummer 

    4: How are you going to treat yourself this week/celebrate your body and its accomplishments? I'm not

    5: Rants/Raves/Questions/Anything else you want to add? Just the running thing is annoying. Right now I'm either walking on an incline or on the spinning bike

  • @Omie_Wise Agreed on the maternity workout clothes.  For winter I have one long-sleeve workout maternity shirt my SIL gave me and other than that, it's baggy tshirts and leggings! If I'm working out at home I have one pair of athletic shorts that still fit if I wear them under my bump so I've been using those a lot.

    @Beckyf321 Your cookies comment made me laugh! There were a lot of cookies involved in my December too; you're definitely not alone there.  :)  My family made a cookie recipe from my grandma that is basically cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and flour..... so good!!

    @chelle087 Glad you're still able to run! I get a stitch in my side when just from walking pretty frequently so I'm super impressed.

    @catem07 I am curious what a "spinning bin" is? Sorry to hear about the running. :/

  • 1: How far along are you?  almost 25 weeks

    2: How was December for you fitness-wise? It just wasn't.  I was slowly emerging from always being sick for the first 14-16 weeks or so and then it's taken me a bit to get back in the habit.

    3: What are your goals for the week/month ahead?  DH really wanted a gym membership so I'm with him for solidarity.  I have a complete reimbursement through work if I make it 12 times.  If not, DH and I both agreed the money to pay for the gym comes out of our "allowance" so that's a good motivator. I got a friend to join so we are going to some classes together. 

    4: How are you going to treat yourself this week/celebrate your body and its accomplishments?  

    5: Rants/Raves/Questions/Anything else you want to add?  I had to switch to prenatal yoga because the program I use needed too many modifications.  It's ok, but feels slow. 

    I think I peed myself about 12 times during Zumba last night.

  • @schef070911, I have a similar recipe!  It's a St. Louis recipe, we call them gooey butter cookies.  Cream cheese, stick of butter, yellow cake mix, egg, vanilla, mixed together then rolled in powdered sugar.  They are so damn good.
