Hi! I am new here so I apologize if I am posting in the wrong forum! I am pregnant and in my third trimester currently. Have had all sorts of vein and leg issues with this pregnancy and was forced to lay off the weight training and working out for several months. I have been miserable. I have since found that (against drs. orders) that the recumbent bike was my best friend and that it seemed to help immensely. Well, now that I am doing that I can’t help but wandering over to the weights. I swear I feel better!
Anyway… I have worked out for 15 years and lifting so lightly is quite a challenge for me. I know that now isn’t the time to worry about gains but really I just want to maintain some tone. I plan to go on Indigo this coming Spring and was wondering if anyone had any advice on things I should be doing now that would make getting back into shape easier.
I currently drink at least two scoops of protein a day which helps me feel better too. Prior to pregnancy I was a super clean eater. These last few months have seen a lot of indulgences but I feel stable enough to start eating clean again with the pregnancy caloric amount in mind.
Any advice you can toss at me is appreciated! Looking forward to getting to know you all. Hopefully I’ll be brave enough where can post some pictures. Pretty sure you all don’t need to see me now.
