In reading up on the things I should do during pregnancy, everyone and their mother stressed the importance of working out. My doctor also said it was important to stay active because of my past problems with circulation. (That damn blood clot will always come back to haunt me.)

Luckily, I was already in a pretty good routine pre-pregnancy. I am a total Tracy Anderson devotee. For those of you who don't know her, she is responsible for creating the bodies of people you may have heard of - ahem, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Hudson, Gwyneth Paltrow, and many, many more. 

I had been doing her Metamorphasis DVD's religiously five days a week since March of 2015 and continued with her Continuity program. When I found out I was pregnant, I immediately switched to her Pregnancy Project

Even though the first three months of my pregnancy were tremendously tough, doing Tracy's Pregnancy Project actually made me feel better. It helped with the nauseousness and I actually looked forward to doing it four to five times a week. 

What I love about this DVD set is that there are nine different DVD's for your nine months of pregnancy. Also, Tracy was pregnant as well so I felt totally comfortable that the exercises I was doing each day were safe for me and the baby. 

You wouldn't see me caught dead hoisting huge weights above my head normally, let alone while I was pregnant. (Let's be honest, that requires waaayyyyy too much of my energy, and during my zombie-like state it was definitely not in the cards.) So, I just stuck to walking the dog twenty minutes along with doing Tracy which ranged from 35-55 minutes a day. 

Lord knows my diet went down the tubes the first three months, but sticking with this workout gave me a peace of mind that I was doing all I could to be healthy for me and the baby. 

Everyone has different preferences and routines, but I just wanted to share with you all what I've been able to keep up with and enjoy during my pregnancy. Although, I'm sure you will all werk it out any way you choose to!
