Thank you for your kind comments on my belly pics! I appreciate them so much. I’ll share progress pics from time to time, but I promise not to overload you with pics of my belly!
By the way, I love this picture from his first competition:
New Year’s WOD – on a 20 min clock:
5 Deadlifts #242 / #170
Box Jump 24/20 in, max reps
Burpees, max reps
KB Swings 1.5 pd./ 1 pd., max reps
Double Unders, max reps
The pic above is from the Reebok CrossFit ONE team WOD, and we were using 24″ boxes. I was at 10 weeks during this WOD.
I should’ve bumped my weight up to 150# on the deadlifts because 131# was too easy. However, I keep telling myself now isn’t the time to gain, only maintain. Essentially, we had about 2:45 min to do max reps because 5 deadlifts don’t take much time. That means you have to pace yourself somewhat.
box jumps: 46
KB swings: 48
This was the first time I felt my belly doing burpees. In fact, I had just asked my doctor at our appointment when I should stop doing burpees. She thought if I maintained control throughout the movement (not belly flop to the ground) I could do them as long as I was comfortable. Ha! Burpees and control!
You’ll remember in the Holiday Travel Workout, I demoed burpees without much problem, but that was nearing 15 weeks, so I wasn’t showing as much.
But, this time, I could feel my belly–like a little ball or something. So, I can see some modifications happening in the future. I was under control when I performed the burpees though!
Today, Cooper and I headed out for a frigid run. Can you tell he was anxious?
I bundled up for the 25* temps and found a clear, paved path for us. Most of the sidewalks still have snow and ice every so often which is tiresome to watch for.
Normally, I wear my Garmin to run, but I like seeing my heart rate and tend to get frustrated with my ever-slowing mile pace. The watch above is the Polar FT 40 HRM. I use it when I’m teaching class or for home workouts.
Monday: 3 mi run/walk
Wednesday: CrossFit WOD
Thursday: 3 mi run/walk
Friday: 4 mi run
Saturday: Hero WOD
Every person is different when it comes to working out while pregnant, so don’t use my personal experience as a guideline. Listen to your body and do what makes you feel good! So far, I am thankful to not have any nausea or aches and pains, but it’s a long road ahead as I hit 18 weeks complete tomorrow.
I’m also not shy about eating…treats too. It’s still peppermint ice cream season, isn’t it?
What does your weekend workout(s) look like?
Favorite flavor of ice cream?!
