I knew whenever I found out I was pregnant, stopping my workouts was just simply not going to be an option.
So, after getting an all clear from my Dr. I continued on with my workouts throughout pregnancy. At the end of July/Beginning of August I started T25, an 8 week program created by Sean T, the same fitness instructor who was the brainchild behind Insanity. I can’t recall the exact start date without consulting my workout journal but I know it was around then. The workouts are similar to Insanity but less stressful on the joints and ONLY 25 minutes.
By September 16, 2013 I had completed the program, here are my before and after photos. I was 17 weeks pregnant in September, not bad ehh? I would like to give credit for those abs to no one OTHER than myself. I worked very hard. I will also say that I kept at lifting weights and using some other Beachbody programs to mix it up a little and add on to my workouts to make them longer. Some days, 25 minutes is just not long enough.
By the end of my 2nd Trimester I will be honest and say that some moves were getting harder just because I couldn’t move like I used to be able to. Engaging your core becomes quite difficult when you have a tiny human inside you! For years I had taught myself to engage and use my core in everything I did throughout the day. I had to sort of re-learn how to use my body, a very strange feeling. Here is a workout from week 26, the last week of the 2nd trimester.
