Pregnancy is quite the journey! It is both exhausting and exciting, frightening and full of love.

Your body makes a ton of changes during this time, and you will quickly find that your heart rate rises faster and your belly makes it hard to do certain activities.

Staying active during pregnancy, however, is very important for both you and baby.

Workout Wednesday #16: 5 Best Leg Exercises For Pregnancy

Dare To Share!

Pregnancy is a wondrous and beautiful thing.

It is also full of unwanted, yet needed, weight gain. Gaining weight is big part of pregnancy that women dread. We all fear ending up with a flabby booty or discovering that we now have thunder thighs and cankles rather calves AND ankles.

While the weight gain is important for your growing baby, it can be rather stressful for the mom to be. One way to combat this anxiety is to work on firming up your body. It isn’t terribly safe to try to burn off fat while building a baby, however, toning and shaping your muscles is a great way to build confidence in yourself and keep your body strong and shapely.

Legs, especially the thighs, get hit particularly hard when women are pregnant as the hormone estrogen causing more weight gain in this area. However, there are 5, easy exercises that you can do to combat this issue. Continue reading “Workout Wednesday #16: 5 Best Leg Exercises For Pregnancy”

Dare To Share!

Hello again from Workout Wednesday’s!

March has flown by and we have straight into April.  A new month means a new Featured YouTube Trainer! So far this year we have focused on female trainers, Tiffany Rothe and Josephine from Gymra, so today I have decided we need a male presence in our workout lives!

Just a reminder that my Featured Trainers are coaches on YouTube, meaning you don’t have to travel to a gym or worry about any fees to do a workout! All you need is a small amount of space (about 4×6 feet minimum) and, for some routines, a set of dumbbells available at your local superstore like Walmart, Target, etc. Continue reading “April’s Featured Trainer on Workout Wednesday’s!”

How To Start A Workout Routine TODAY

Dare To Share!

If there is one thing that I hear A LOT, it’s that people “really need to get back into a workout routine” but just don’t know where to start.

It also means starting something that is not going to feel all that great for a few days and, in fact, may cause more pain! Continue reading “How To Start A Workout Routine TODAY”

Hopefully your fitness goals for this year are coming along nicely! Sadly, my own goals have gone off track a bit as I have found out I am pregnant another baby and have a wretched case of morning sickness that lasts all day!

This week I am bringing you a 10 minute, body weight workout. That means no dumbbells, no kettlebells, no bars. Just you and a tiny bit of your time! Continue reading “Workout Wednesday #10: 10 Minute Body Weight Workout”
