Went out with a bang!!

So today was my last day at the gym I work with. It’s been a hell of a 4 year ride. I’ve learned alot from all the different trainers, met some interesting people and made friendships that I will always remember. It was my home away from home… I can’t say I won’t miss it!! 😥

I THINK that my ‘morning sickness’ is slowly subsiding as I enter my second trimester. Some days I feel like a million bucks, others I barely have the energy to hold myself up. I’m crossing my fingers that by the next couple weeks I feel back to my old self again.

Today us trainers had our weekly training session. Today’s workout was Shaniquoa:

Jumping Pull-ups x20 reps
Push-ups x30 reps
Explosive sit-ups x40 reps
Weighted squats x50 reps x35pds

Rest 2min.. Total of 4 sets

I will admit that I was not able to do 20 pull-ups.. Regularly I can get in maybe 10-12. But good old carpal tunnel (a symptom of pregnancy) has messed with my grip. So I was only able to get 4-6 in, the rest of the time I would jump up to the bar and hold for 5 seconds before releasing.

Push-ups I struggled with.. Again wrists can’t take the pressure, so I paused alot. The rest of the exercises were easy as pie.

I proudly say that I kept up pretty good considering I’m preggo. I surprised myself.. As this was no walk in the park workout. I will pay for this tomorrow though. I already feel my chest shaky.. And the stiffness is slowly creeping in.

I will take a well deserved R&R these next 2 weeks. After that I don’t know what I will do without the gym😫. I will probably get by for a couple of weeks doing workouts at home, but eventually I will hunt for a good gym close to me and pay monthly like most people do :(.

Till next time.
