Le’ts face it. At 6 months pregnant, working out is a bit more challenging than it used to be. I could easily use my new “addition” as an excuse, but that does me no good. The more I work out, the better I feel. This is how it has always been, and how it will always be. I’ll admit- sometimes I have to drag myself into the gym, but I don’t remember ever leaving feeling like it was a waste of time.
Exercise, for me, is what keeps me sane (just ask my husband). It’s also what keeps me feeling energetic and healthy. There is no better feeling than that of accomplishment when you leave the gym sweaty and worn out. So here is my workout from the day. Feel free to use it, and amp it up if you wish!
