Keeping active

(Written at 23 weeks)
I’ve been very blessed to have an easy pregnancy thus far. The bump is visible but I’ve yet to buy any maternity clothes. Thankfully most of my clothing is loose enough to fit an additional few inches in the front. I’ve also been keeping myself physically active and am mindful that being active throughout the pregnancy will help me in labour. I reckon the labouring process will be ‘THE’ most vigorous workouts of my life and there is no way any woman would sign up for it without any training!

Thanks to Terence my workout buddy, he’s crafted several workout plans for me. I interchange it with walks in Kiara, an uphill 45 minute walk. Yes, I do get bored easily doing the same thing. For my legs, I do squats, squat holds, pelvic lifts, side squats and walking. For my arms, I hold light weights and do 45 degree lifts, half push ups, presses and dips. Finally not forgetting the abs, I do planks and improvised sit ups.

So far it has been very effective gauging from the feel good factor of endorphins released after every sweat session. It’s important to keep hydrated and fuelled before and during every workout session. A bottle of H20 and a munch on a muesli bar or fruit before the workout is the best solution.
