So I’ve not posted in my blog for so long mainly because I’ve had a tough time with pregnancy and work but I’m finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel!
My second trimester saw a whirlwind of shit with work. I found out I was getting made redundant 😥 you can imagine right! The sheer terror was awful
How am I going to live?
How am I going to feed the baby?
I’m going to be an unemployed mum!!!
Seriously the list went on and on and eventually I made myself Ill with worry, but after numerous break downs, conversations with my partner, family and friends I finally managed to figure out my next move and realise that all was not lost.
I’m lucky, I have a fantastic partner and family that would support me through anything but still it was hard.
Anyway I’ve now entered my third trimester, so I’m on the home stretch and one thing I have learnt is that weight gain is inevitable.
Yes, unfortunately ladies, unless you have a personal trainer and chef on hand you are going to gain that weight that you were so desperate not to. Now although this grieves me in a way I can’t explain I’ve come to terms with it as I haven’t given up training. Just because I am gaining weight doesn’t mean I have to stop training. In fact I have been training really hard and I’ve loved it.
I swim 3 times a week and I do 2-3 home workouts a week and I feel better for it.
Guys I know how off putting it is when you step on the scales and see that they either haven’t gone down or, if like me you’re pregnant, the scales gave gone up, but please DONT GIVE UP.
Always remember that muscle weighs more than fat and it’s not about what the scales say, it’s about how you feel.
I may have gained 30lbs with this pregnancy but I feel great and I know that once madam pops out I will pop back into shape.
Hang in there ladies, keep going and encourage eachother.
It’s hard but what’s worth it won’t be easy and what’s easy won’t be worth it.
