The other day I was heading to the gym feeling like a rock star. I was pretty sick in my first trimester, so it feels great to feel "normal" again. My energy was back, I was not nauseous and I was ready to sweat. I was applauding myself for being pregnant AND working out.
Now fast forward 30 minutes, after my light gym workout, and I was passed out on the couch!
You would think I had just completed a marathon.
Yes, it is slightly more exhausting to work out while pregnant, but I have found the silver lining. Staying active has helped me feel better and more like myself.
Newlymed Note: A 30 minute jaunt at the gym will require a 2 hour nap!
