Tell the Truth: How Often Did You Work Out When You Were Pregnant?

Hilary Duff January Jones Prenatal Workout

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!
