Exercising

Are any of you still active and/or exercising?

I became super lazy when I became pregnant but continued with evening walks even though I dont feel like they are enough but it is something.



How about you?

I do my 10k steps a day and swim 40-50 lengths twice a week.

I try to do a long walk on a weekend as well. Plus my hydro session with the physio but that’s not really exercise.

I’m really struggling because i used to do HIiT workouts everyday and it’s really affecting my emotional state - I need the release to stop the stress I have in my life but I just can’t do it because it causes me a lot of pain.

yeah I manage about 10k steps days but your swimming is impressive. I just cant be bothered, and I LOVE exercising.

Yeah I know what you mean about release but your baby is measuring big so how are you coping with the long walks?

I do them but feel constant pressure down below.

Oh and another good thing is my office is on first floor with no lifts so I am up and down the stairs several times a day because kitchen and toilet is on ground floor!

That's SO impressive! I am jealous as I made all the plans to continue lifting during pregnancy but as a 5am gym goer, I started valuing my sleep more.

You will probably bounce right back into shape and recover quickly after birth x

I can't wait to get back to it once baby is born.

Gosh definitely no 5am starts for me haha! No way I would have made it. I really do hope I bounce back because despite eating 80% healthy (we even went vegan from week 25) and exercising regularly I've gone up 18kg and have always had issues losing weight! It's really stressing me out haha. We've just bought a house and going to build a gym in the garage. Just a treadmill and weights and whatnot but I cant wait to get back into deadlifting!

Just walking for me.

At least 10K steps a day, often more (yesterday was 14K)

I hate exercise at best of times though!
