With my second pregnancy I have been taking advantage of the social media pages of fellow pregnant mums. I love seeing their growing belly bumps and am amazed at how many of them have been keeping fit throughout their entire pregnancy. This has inspired me to follow their suit.
I have been consistently working out 3-4 days a week to maintain my fitness. I mix up my work out with running 3-5 miles (Stopped at 23 weeks), walking 3-5 miles, 15-20 consecutive minutes lifting small weights (2-5lbs), and 50-100 squats.
My diet has been pretty much the same as it was prior to the pregnancy (minus the alcohol). An average day for me consists of: Breakfast - a bowl of high fiber/protein cereal, Lunch - a chicken salad, chicken sandwich or protein shake, Dinner - grilled meats and vegetables, & Dessert - Low-fat ice cream or my favorite "After Dinner Mint" by Cedar Crest. I do, however allow for days to occasionally have pizza for a meal and/or a donut or two for breakfast. We are all human.
Here I am at 16 weeks 5 days
