I love any good workout that I can easily do from home, and I really like how the workouts are customized to the week of my pregnancy.
Weirdest pregnancy craving
Plain cereal (no milk!) was one of the few things that I looked forward to eating during my first trimester when I was dealing with nausea on a daily basis. Now, I’m eating cereal with milk every day. It’s not my usual go-to breakfast, but I’m letting it slide during the pregnancy. Right now, Life Cereal is my favorite.
I’m a registered dietitian and know the importance of teaching our children about health and fitness at an early age. I was fortunate to have very active parents,and I picked up on their habits to be an active teenager and adult. Now, I can’t imagine my life without exercise. I hope that my kid(s) will learn good habits from me that last into adulthood and beyond.
Distance running is my preferred workout, but I stopped running altogether when I was 30 weeks pregnant. I like workouts that tone my arms, so I always do the upper body exercises in the Fitness Studio in the app.
Cake and ice cream. Even better when eaten in combination.
Words of wisdom
Choose the time of day when you have the most energy to work out, and be kind to yourself if you have to skip a day, a week, or longer. It’s good to know that it can make you feel better temporarily.
