Fit for 2!

I am now into the 7th month of my pregnancy and since this blog has changed into more of what Im doing while pregnant I figured Id post my workout routine and meal plan. I did a lot of searching online for articles on pregnancy workouts and eating (along with speaking with my doctor) so I knew I was doing the right thing. You really only need and extra 300 calories starting at the 3 month point and that is basically like eating some oats and protein...and not the entire bag of M&Ms!

For the past couple months Ive been quite motivated to hit the gym and stay on track with my meals. Some weekends I do let go a bit and have the things Im craving but it doesnt last the entire day...mainly dinner and its usually always sushi! 

Monday - Thursday
  • Walk to and from the gym
  • Stretching
  • Treadmill/ Elliptical 2 miles @ incline
  • Followed by either arms/legs (squats, pushups, plank, lunges, rows, etc)
  • 2-4 mile walk outside
  • Lots of stretching
  • If we aren't doing anything active outside I usually just take periods of time thru out the day to stretch really well and we walk in the evenings with our dogs.
Meal Plan
Breakfast: Coffee (w/ crm and sugar) and 4-5 Egg Whites or Oats
Snack: Protein/ Fruit/ WW Toast with NPB
Lunch: Chicken, Salad, Brn rice/sweet potato
Snack: Fruit/cheese
Dinner: Chicken/Fish, Brn rice, salad
Snack: Cottage cheese
  • I generally drink about 6 shake bottles full of water a day. May be more if Im walking to and from the gym in this crazy heat!
  • I always have my water bottle with me so as soon as I see its empty I know to fill it right away. Ive found that my body actually CRAVES the water...Im sure the baby likes it too!
  • Right now I am only taking prenatal vitamins and 100% Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein.


  1. Wow, you look great! And your workouts sound amazing, even for someone who's not pregnant!! Hope the rest of your pregnancy goes smoothly. Do you know what you're having? (sorry if you've already shared - I don't have much time this morning to peruse more)
