Is it possible to feel fit and attractive during your pregnancy, or are you doomed to feel fat, unattractive, and uncomfortable for the next nine months? The answer is…yes! You can feel fit and fabulous during pregnancy! Follow these pregnancy fitness tips and you and your baby will not only survive, but both make it out happy, and healthy. Now let’s talk about how to make and keep you a hot mama all throughout your pregnancy.
The number one pregnancy fitness tip that I can give you is to stay active. Believe it or not it’s that’s simple. The weight loss rule still applies, even with this baby that’s bound and determined to make you gain. The idea that pregnancy will leave you confined to your couch with fifteen movies and a giant bag of M&M’s is a fallacy! It is however a fact, that most activities that you were doing before pregnancy, you can participate in during pregnancy.
Check with your doctor first, but for most people it is a great idea to interact in aerobic exercise and even weight lifting during your pregnancy. Pilates and yoga are excellent choices for pregnancy activities. By having a strong, toned body during pregnancy, you will have an easier pregnancy, labor, delivery, and get your pre-baby body back in no time.
The other most important aspect of pregnancy fitness is diet. Just because you are pregnant, you do not get to use that as an excuse to pig out for the next nine months. If you do that, you will gain weight and you will spend the next several months trying to get back.
It is much more beneficial for you and your baby to choose healthful food options. If you are craving ice cream, skip the Ben and Jerry’s and reach for low fat frozen yogurt. This tastes great and gives you a serving of much needed calcium for you and your baby.
If you are craving something sweet, have some fresh fruit. This will satisfy your sweet tooth, and once again, give you and your baby much needed vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Get with your doctor and figure out how many calories a day you should be consuming. Then make sure that you get your caloric intake from healthy, low fat foods. Filling up on empty calories is unhealthy for you and your baby.
