Why is it that the thighs and hips have to grow as the belly grows? Ugh, it sucks, but today, I ‘m going to show you how to reduce thigh weight gain with this pregnancy workout because this type of workout is the most effective.
I mean, isn’t it enough that our body is changing so fast and our hormones are going crazy and we feel sick…
By the way, if you are feeling sick or if you are just finding out you’re pregnant and you haven’t gotten to the “sick stage” yet, here are some really great tips that will help you be able to EAT HEALTHY even when you are feeling sick.
Actually, I give you ONE TIP that will seriously make you stop feeling sick. It worked for me both pregnancies and it works for all my prego’s that do my Fit Mom-To-Be Workouts. I can’t tell you how many of them email me telling me they did this and stopped having morning sickness.
I look forward to connecting with you so make sure you go there and LIKE the page so we can stay in contact during your pregnancy.
Well, there is good news and bad news.
The good news is that the thighs don’t have to grow.
You can actually prevent excess weight gain in the thighs if you WORKOUT during pregnancy. And eat healthy of course. Here are my 5 Favorite Pregnancy Exercises for the THIGHS. They really help keep the legs tight and reduces the excess weight gain.
Pregnancy Diet Tips
If you need some tips on eating. michellemariefit.com wrote a great post about this and it has helped tons of pregnant women to NOT gain EXCESS weight.
And if you are craving lots of carbs, this will help you. I wrote up a list of all the healthy carbs and what to do when you are having CARB CRAVINGS.
The bad news is that the hips must expand. It is the only way to make room for that 6-9 pound bundle of joy to come out. But don’t worry because of about 8 weeks postpartum, that will go back to normal. And hey, if you exercise during your entire pregnancy like I did with my 2 pregnancies and like all my Fit Prego’s do with my Fit Mom-To-Be Workouts, then you can get back to pre-pregnancy shape even faster. So, my prego friend, make sure to exercise. It’s worth it.
I tell you that from experience (2 pregnancies and having worked with thousands and thousands of pregnant women that do my Fit Mom-To-be Workout Program).
If you just workout 3 times per week during your pregnancy, you will see a crazy good result. You don’t need to work for 10 hours a week. Just 3-5 hours out of 168 hours in a week, I don’t think is much to ask.
Look at me a few months postpartum with my second baby. It’s crazy but now after 2 kids, I’m in the best shape of my life and I really think I was able to do that because of exercising during my pregnancies.
By the way, you can read through My Pregnancy Story here, I think you can learn a lot and be inspired tons by reading everything I went through.
Ok, so now that we got that out of the way, lets talk about how you can prevent that excess weight gain during pregnancy. Because let me tell you from experience of working with so many Pregnant Women who have done my Fit Mom-To-Be Workouts for years, that it really isn’t worth gaining all the extra weight. Most of the ones that do say they felt lethargic, more aches and pains, had a hard time during delivery and took years to get back to normal.
On the other hand, my girls that workout during pregnancy, sleep better, have less aches and pains, feel confident and sometimes even sexy (believe it or not), have faster and easier delivery and get in pre-pregnancy shape within weeks. Check out what some of them say….. I hope this convinces you to exercise during pregnancy.
