Tell the Truth: How Often Did You Work Out When You Were Pregnant?
August 26, 2011
See the gray maternity top and black pants on January Jones and Hilary Duff? When I was pregnant I had the same outfit, except I didn’t wear it to the gym like the two celebrity mamas-to-be. I wore it lounging around the house after getting home from work. Heck I didn’t even have a gym membership.
The truth is, I was pretty lax about my prenatal workouts. I hate making excuses, but I had a stressful job that included a two+ hour commute, I had just moved into a new house, and quite honestly, I was pretty much overwhelmed and tired. The last thing on my mind was working out, and I just wanted to curl up in bed and sleep.
But I did try to sneak in some exercise whenever I could. I parked far from the office, which forced me to walk, and then I walked some more during my lunch break. And in the evenings, I walked around the neighborhood with my husband. It wasn’t much, but it was better than nothing!
