Thanks for all the kind words yesterday! Yesterday was definitely a better day.
Last week, I posted this workout, but I also mentioned my inability to do it. The preg pains have let up a bit from last week, but they’re definitely still there. My doc cleared me to workout, provided it doesn’t hurt too much, so after taking a week off, I was eager to get back to it this week. Here’s what I’m up to now:
- Sunday: rest
- Monday: arms (detail below) and swim/walk 30 min
- Tuesday: Tracy Anderson Pregnancy Project DVD
- Wednesday: arms (detail below) and swim/walk or elliptical 30 min
- Thursday: 60 min Prenatal Pilates
- Friday: rest, prenatal yoga, or easy walk
- Saturday: whatever I’m up for that day
Arms = incline dumbbell fly, SUPERSET bench dips & lateral dumbbell raises, single-arm dumbbell rows, curl to overhead press, and one wildcard move (ie: barbell curls, deadlifts, etc.)
I’m not sure how long I’ll continue this workout, but as always, when I switch up the routine, I’ll post the new one.
By the way, the swimming is good but not great. Swimming hurt on Monday, and I was forced me to stop mid-lap. While walking it off, I got an idea.
In case it was just my belly dropping too low and over-stretching my ligaments, I put this floaty-thing under my hips below my belly. It helped my form, and I definitely felt better.
I did the same thing yesterday and felt great. I have to swim slowly or my floaty will roll out from under me, but at least I’ve found a way to keep moving!
Before I go…
I want to take a minute to say Antoinette Tuff is awesome. We all remember the names of the bad guys (not that it’s anyone’s fault, that’s just kind of how it is), but it’s easy to forget the names of the victims or the good guys. Well, she’s the good guy (the good lady, actually) of the school incident on Tuesday. Antoinette persuaded a gunman to lay down his weapons at the elementary school. That’s all. I just thought she deserved a little extra praise.
