Honesty is the best policy, chatting about fitness (and mac n cheese)

I had full intentions on doing a fun fitness post for y’all today.
But I’m all about being real here on this blog of mine,
so that’s JUST what i’m going to do, let the realness come out!

It has been HARD to work out consistently during this pregnancy y’all,
Now that i’m in my second trimester I definitely have some energy back.
But for some reason working out just isn’t where my focus is at.
{probably because all I want to do is buy a million baby outfits & decorate a nursery}
Now don’t get me wrong, I do get a small work out in every now and then.
But it just hasn’t been as consistent as I would like it to be.
And I would definitely feel guilty if I sat here and wrote up a post about
these amazing maternity support leggings and told you how great they are for working out,
when in reality I’ve been wearing them to eat Mac & Cheese and an entire tube of crescent rolls
all while laying on my couch.
Which in all honesty, that feels like a work out in itself because I somehow seem to
get out of breath while eating these days.
{it’s really not a pretty sight}

BUT I’ve brought you all here today to say that I am going to get my life together.
I went to Target yesterday…and made the BIG mistake of going into their dressing rooms.
Good God it was NOT a pretty sight.
Now if you’ve never been into a Target dressing room, they literally have mirrors on
every single wall, that will show you every single angle of your body.
And it is NOT good.
I remember when I was in shape and in college and STILL not liking to go in there….
Needless to say, yes Target mirrors just SUCK.
But, it was an eye opening experience for me….

Kyle’s brother and his fiancé moved like not even 5 minutes away from us
a couple months ago,
so I was all like “hell ya, a workout partner!!”
Her and I went and got a gym membership at a cutie little gym in the neighborhood
like over a month ago…
Literally haven’t gone back since.
I’m just so not a gym person at all…
The whole…people looking at me…me not knowing how machines work…me walking around aimlessly…people grunting in the corner and making me uncomfortable…
It’s just not for me okay!!!

So a lightbulb went off in my head…
This same exact thing happened to me years ago and I came across the best
at home work out program ever and it literally transformed my body and my health.
I’m pregnant, and growing, so i’m not exactly looking for a transformation BUT
I’m definitely going to go back to those videos that I used to do every single day.
I’ll just modify the moves so they work for me and the little babe.

I’ll let y’all know how it goes!
pray for me, cross your fingers, do whatever you do…
I gotta get some lift to this ass of mine STAT.

Alright enough rambling for today.
Happy Monday!

    I'll be hitting my second trimester this week and oh my gosh, I had all these dreams of eating healthy and working out and none of that happened. Looks like I need to check out those leggings though!

    Exercise during pregnancy is hard. Yoga kept me on track though. Try some prenatal yoga?

    It's so hard trying to stay active during pregnancy! I was sooo tired the WHOLE time! And carbs! I think I ate ALL the carbs. ha ha. Good luck- you look great!

    I've done a lot of the work outs from the beach body program we did a few years ago! Worked well for baby and I however the third trimester exhaustion is hard to overcome!

      Yes that's what I'm doing!! I'm trying to get the work outs in before the third trimester exhaustion hits lol

    I'm pregnant too (in my second trimester) and I'm totally with you! Finding the motivation to work out is not easy but I definitely feel better when I do.
