Second Trimester!

We officially hit the second trimester almost a month ago!20170705_133905{15 Weeks}

Let me tell you… it gets better for 2-3 days then goes back to be horrible (like 10x’s worse) for a day or two. Since this pretty much is the pattern, I’ve begun to take advantage of those good days.

Weight: I’m back at my “pre-pregnancy weight” of 155lbs as I lost 3lbs during the 1st trimester. It’s coming back slowly.

Fitness: I am managing to get in 3-4 workouts a week! Whoohoo 😀19656920_10103063585252460_9171077219010165045_n{17 Weeks}

My goal is to do Barre 1-2 times a week [as I teach 3 Barre classes a week] and try to take 1 Pure Barre class, plus take an Orangetheory Fitness (OTF) if I can. Since I am a coach at OTF, I can browse the workouts before hand and see if it’s something I can do. I stick to the arm/ leg days and avoid any cardio or ab moves.

[Note: Everything is modifiable but since I am higher risk, I like to take that extra precaution for my own sake.]

Here’s what my current fitness routine looks like during the week:

  • Monday: Pure Barre
  • Tuesday: Rest Day
  • Wednesday: HIIT Workout
  • Thursday: Active Rest Day (usually go for walks with Sammy)
  • Friday: Strength Training
  • Saturday: Pure Barre (or Active Rest Day)
  • Sunday: Active Rest Day

I’ve been really trying to keep moving regardless if I don’t make it to a class or get to workout. I’m still trying to focus on eating as healthy as I can. I’ve been able to tolerate smoothies and yogurt now to get some nutrition and protein boost.19732046_10103063650880940_7632903007232961297_nFood: The past few weeks, I’ve been craving Chinese, fried chicken and cookies. It’s hard to avoid the “bad ones” especially when you don’t feel like cooking (not to mention we have a Chinese place across the street).

Coffee I can tolerate here and there, but I only do decaf as I still drink caffeine’d up water to get my fix in the morning. Right now I’m loving this one from Crystal Light’s Pure Energy line (has 120mg of caffeine per packet).19756436_10103063650736230_3156185344074923543_nI know, I know not the “best” thing to drink but it’s better then puking from a migraine or having to take tons of Tylenol all day. I pick my battles and poisons to survive; especially trying to survive a twin pregnancy… with a toddler!19875197_10103063651414870_8432401408185514942_nHere’s to surviving the rest of the summer heat!😀

Question: Any twin moms out there? What’s your best piece of advice?
