Day 3

So this is my 3rd day of exercise and it is going well!  My body is responding well to the exercise.  I was a bit worried because I haven't done anything since maybe 6-8 weeks along.  I almost feel like I could do more.  I always feel like the wii isn't the best work out but my muscles are sore so I am feeling it.  I also keep reminding myself that the 20 minute work out is miles better than what I was doing before and if I continue I will be fitter and healthier.  I need to learn how to pace myself because I could easily burn out.  I am also doing well with getting another 20 or so minutes of walking in.  Not everyday but it is happening.

My only worry is that I have cut out my naps to exercise and to clean/cook.  This makes me worry because I don't know how long I will be able to continue at this pace.  I hope I can but I am so close to the 3rd trimester and who knows what will happen then.

I am so happy to say that I am feeling good and I think that the exercise is really helping my mood.  I have been very emotional the last couple weeks.  There are so many factors as to why like the weather, which has been so rainy and blah.  Thankfully the sun is shining and I got a great dose of vitamin D today.

  1. I'm glad the exercise is going well - try to resist doing more than just a little, even if you feel great, you don't want to overtax your body too quickly. build 5-10 minutes a day rather than jumping in cold turkey with a larger amount.

    If your body isn't demanding naps don't feel guilty about not taking them! And on the same note, if you are feeling tired and cannot add in BOTH, a nap is probably more beneficial to your health than exercising, if it is a choice between the two. This isn't always the case but pregnancy requires some special considerations for our systems.
