Pregnancy Workout/Link Up!

This is my first Link Up! I'm way excited! I LOVE Skinny Meg. 

She makes me smile and I love how real she is. I also tend to go back to her older posts and read all about her. Sorry Skinny Meg. I may be a mini stalker. ;) I joke, I joke.

Anyway, I thought a link up would be the perfect way for me to get started on blogging about my Pregnancy workouts! And a good way to get me to blog for at least two days in a row. 

I know, shocker, right?

Hey, I'm working on it.

Well, first off I'll tell you what I'm eating for lunch at this moment. 

4oz. Salsa Chicken (recipe curtosy of He And She Eat Clean), 1/2 cup brown rice, nearly a whole cucumber (LW took some of it) and a handful of baby carrots dipped in ranch. I don't know if I'll eat the whole cucumber what with my stomach having less room in it, but I'll do my best. VEGGIES PEOPLE! You NEED them. :) 

Haha, LW just saw another cucumber and called it a "cookie", I love this kid. Anyway.

ASK YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE STARTING ANY WORKOUT PROGRAM. ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE PREGNANT!!! With that said, I was told by my OB/GYN that I can do anything I've already been doing, and just to listen to my body. Once at 20 weeks I need to stop doing flat on my back exercises, which I don't do a lot of anyway. 

So this is what I'm doing today.
Day One of Squat Challenge - 50 Squats

Workout (repeat 2x)
High Knees (or Run in place) - 30 Secs
Close (arms to your sides) Pushups - 10 on knees
Walking Lunges - 20 reps
Plank - 30 Secs
Three Point Lunge Kicks (lunge back[1 rep], side[2 rep], front[3 rep]. kick after each then swith and repeat) - 12 reps ea side
Slow Mountain Climb with Knee twist - 15 reps
Left Side Plank w/ Lift - 15 reps
Right Side Plank w/ Lift - 15 reps
Wide Pushups - 10 on Toes

Wooh, I'm tired. Typing that out was hard work. ;) Haha.
Please, remember to refuel after your workout. Drink LOTS of water and STRETCH!
That's it for today! 

Until Next Time!
