Today I worked out again, which is because I had the morning off. I worked out my chest and shoulders today. It went really well. My shoulders were burning from lactic acid at the end, so that was fun to deal with. I could really tell in my shoulders that I had basically taken last week off. I did do planks, which work out my shoulders. My chest lifts I managed to go the same amount of reps and weight, which I found very accomplishing.
Pretty much how 3rd trimester is going
I also got to spend some time with my hubby and my pups outside. We burned a bunch of boxes that we had been gathering because of all the baby stuff we got. While he didn’t talk much (he talks a lot for work), it was still nice to be outside with him. Our pups never left our sides and enjoyed playing fetch. Trooper went down to the pond a few times and enjoyed getting wet then waiting to shake once he got back up to us. My other one was super lovey and enjoyed some snuggles. She did eventually get bored of that and go down to the pond to explore. She didn’t stay down there for long though before coming up and checking on us.
Today I worked out after work, which seems to be working well for me. My exercises today were for biceps and triceps. Those muscles have had a week off and I could tell. I didn’t really increase reps on any of the exercises, except a few. However, it was nice to really work those muscles after having the week off. Yesterday I didn’t work out, since we had to take my hubby’s car in to the shop. We had to drop it off by 7am. I also had a ten hour shift, so there was no way I was working out. This pregnant body would have none of that.
Last week I was a slacker and slept more than I worked out. But hey you know what, sometimes sleep is way more important. I felt better and had more energy for work when I did that. Today I did manage to workout but it was after work. I might start doing that because I actually sleep through the night (except to go to the bathroom). Since I am pregnant, I really believe in getting as much sleep as possible. Anyways, I also was almost a slacker today as well. It was hard to wake up for work and when I got off work I really didn’t want to do anything. However, my dad asked if I was going to and so there I got my motivation back. It was leg day, which didn’t help with my motivation. My lifts went well. While I didn’t increase anything, it still felt like I was working my muscles. I’m not sure I really will increase reps anymore but if it feels super easy I might. Once I started though, it felt nice to be back at. It also helps with calf cramps. I’ve noticed that when I consistently workout I have hardly any too no leg cramps at night. That really helps with the whole sleeping through the night.
33 weeks along 👶🏻😳
