Yesterday was my last day of work. I was sad to leave the people who I’ve spent the past numerous months with, but I’m ready for summer. I also met with the same couple for another interview to be their nanny. I think it will be a good fit for both of us so I’m hopeful that might work out! I should know in a day or two!
Besides that, my plans for today include laying on the couch, ha. I don’t have crazy things that need to get done, and I think a day to lay low might be good. We shall see!
Let’s take a look back at my workouts last week:
Tuesday: 10 minute walk.
Wednesday: 25 minute stair climber.
Thursday: 30 Minute full Body workout
I really loved this workout! I need to do it more often!
Friday: 25 minute walk
Saturday: 30 minute walk and the workout below!
Sunday: Rest day
Monday: 15 minute strength circuit thrown together and a 10 minute walk.
So about last week…
I was in some pain last week in my pelvic bone. I thought it was pressure but it was quite painful to walk. I kept things quite low key. I actually gave up both of my classes last week because I wasn’t sure I’d be the best to get up and demonstrate when I was in pain. I am thankfully feeling so much better! I’m definitely happy I kept things low key and didn’t push myself last week!
And now.. for a workout!
Total Body Strength:
This week’s workout is definitely pregnancy friendly. I did it and loved it! I had hoped it was actually a quick one, but it ended up being about 30 minutes and I was sweating by the end. I made it up on Saturday when I was at my parents, knowing I hadn’t done much strength last week, but wanting to feel like I did something. It was perfect!
I know I’ve been having trouble with lunges feeling great the past few weeks so if that’s the case with you, insert more squats. They are great for pregnancy! You can do Left and Right side squats instead of alternating lunges, and sumo squats instead of side lunges!
You will do each set 3 times. So for instance, complete the lower body and upper body segment three times, then rest and move on to the next. You could also complete the entire thing three times total, which is sure to keep your heart rate up! I broke it up into four smaller circuits with one lower body, and two upper body. I can’t wait to use this in my class this week!
