Well I have got to be honest exercising in this heat seems unbearable sometimes, especially when you really just want to sit in a bucket of ice!
That aside, the other thing I have been struggling with lately is the weight I have gained. Now unfortunately it is inevitable that when having a baby you are going to gain weight, and if I am being totally honest it is something I have struggled with.
You see I’m one of these people that because of the exercise I do, I very rarely gain weight, that is unless I decide to have a complete fat week and eat the entire domino’s chain! But it’s not often. Now I am having to accept the fact that my body is changing and no matter how much exercise I do, I am going to gain baby weight. And do you know what ladies … IT SUCKS. It’s hard realising that the little ass you used to have now is a huge thing that needs its own postcode, or the size 10 shorts I used to wear now laugh at me when I look at them. And the hair bobble trick is now fully in use! yes I am using hair bobbles to buckle my pants together.
The struggle is real!!!
All of the above are happening to my once toned body and I am struggling to accept that this is what happens when you have a child! So if people say to you, I only gained 10lbs then good for them, but everyone is different and we have to accept that. Listen to me hey, I really need to practice what I preach on this one but I do know that even though I may have gained weight, I will have a lovely healthy baby and my body will find it easier to snap back into shape once I have given birth.
So, ladies, my beautiful women, I assure you, if you feel that you are going it alone and gaining unwanted weight during pregnancy then I am with you!
The main thing is carry on with your healthy eating and exercising and try and accept that your body will change and them unwanted pounds will creep on but it is not forever!
Let me know how you’ve been getting on with your pregnancy and weight gain
