Pushing through

So the past couple weeks have literally been a rollercoaster. One moment I’m feeling great and full of energy and ready for a killer workout, so I put my game face on and step into the iron jungle… BRING IT!!!
Next moment I’m feeling like I’ve been run over and reversed onto by a dump truck 😫. Needless to say these past couple weeks I have struggled through, especially with my workouts. I’m lucky if I get 3 workouts in a week.

The joys of pregnancy hit me in the late afternoon/ early evening, where I find myself feeling extremely nauseous and at times a bit dizzy. I have been feeling more irritated lately and will admit at losing my cool at times ( I’m hoping those who are at the receiving end of it remember that is not really me!!)

I find myself WOOSAHH- ing to try and calm myself down.

With regards to my clients.. I struggle through the hour with them.. Alot of times holding my breath or even mouth-breathing so as not to catch a whiff of them ( super-human sense of smell= not fun when you deal with sweaty people for an hour :(). I really hope I don’t look disgusted.. I’ve been told many times I’m not subtle when it comes to my facial expressions.

Today I can barely move. I might have overdone it with my leg workout yesterday. Thank god today is a quit day for me.. Only 3 clients to deal with.

Yesterday’s Leg Workout:

Barbell squats, ass to grass 4 sets x10reps x70pds
Kettlebell single leg deadlift 4sets x10reps x45pds superset with
Lying leg curl 4sets x12reps x70pds
Dumbbell rear crossover lunge 4sets x10reps x60pds
Seated calf extension 4sets x15reps x50pds
Seated leg extension 4 sets x10reps x90pds

I have a few more weeks till I’m done with the first trimester. I have hope for the second trimester as my nausea should subside (crossing my fingers!!) by then.

Ohh did I mention I have gained 5pds already :oops:.. Healthy weight gain is 4-6pds in the first trimester. I’m hoping I can keep to that.. 1 more month to go, we’ll see what happens.
