My Fitness Routine this Week:
This has been the roughest week for me fitness-wise. As I have entered the final trimester of pregnancy, I am experiencing a fatigue that I haven't felt throughout entire pregnancy. It could be partially due to the heat, but I will find myself feeling absolutely drained to the point where my muscles feel extra heavy on my body. It's possible this is also because of the rapid weight gain my little boy is experiencing, as he could be zapping extra calories from me!
As I work to build my endurance back up a little bit, the name of the game right now is just moving from point A to point B. I try to park further away at the grocery store, try to walk to a nearby location for lunch rather than drive, and even try to sneak an extra journey up and down my apartment steps when I am able. None of these exertions come anywhere close to the level of exercise I have been doing, but it's all I've got for right now. I can always feel the difference in my baby's movements on a day when I have done my best to sneak in a little extra movement- He kicks more strongly and frequently, and that's a reward that definitely makes it worth it!
My Beauty Routine this Week:
When growing a small human, make sure to take some time out to pamper yourself! This week I went and got a pedicure. I have been fortunate to not really have swelling in my legs or ankles, but I can imagine that if I did a leg/foot massage would have felt even more amazing than it did. I usually don't spend money on pedicures, but now that I can't bend over quite as easily as I used to I think it's a necessary expense!
I am also very diligently using my Skin Authority Sunless Tanner in preparation of my upcoming maternity photo shoot. Stay tuned!
