Prenatal Yoga 10 Minutes

I love prenatal yoga – it’s the only time I’ve been successful at practicing yoga for some reason.

When I was pregnant with Lilly, I started a class at 14 weeks pregnant and took my last class at 36 weeks (then went into labour the next night).

This time around there were no summer classes being offered, so I wait. A class is starting next Wednesday and I am really looking forward to it. In the mean time, I’ve been trying this oneout: 10 Minute Prenatal Yoga from Fit Sugar:

Namaste.

Smoothie and Workouts for Sept 2 – Sept 9th

I set my goals last Sunday after have a great week working out…we’ll….let’s say “being active” at 25/26 weeks pregnant. And I failed pretty darn good at them this week!

That’s life. I’ll get to my workouts in a minute.

I’ve been making a lot of smoothies this summer, much to Lilly’s delight. She loves them too. Recently, I got tired of making them individually and decided to “package” them and freeze them to take out when I want one.

Yummy Smoothie:

What I did:

  • Cut all the fruit I wanted in the smoothie
  • Put a little bit of all the fruit in a zip lock bag – had 3 smoothies ready to go!
  • Made 1 smoothie to drink right away
  • Froze the rest in the freezer
  • Take out 1 bag when I want a smoothie

Ingredients:

  • Banana
  • Mango
  • Orange (I used a grapefruit as I didn’t have any oranges and didn’t love it until I made it again with an orange)
  • Pineapple
  • Coconut Yogurt
  • Other: You can add a protein powder, chia seeds, other tropical fruit.
