Hey guys! I haven’t done a comprehensive fitness week in review for awhile, so I thought today would be a good time to do one! I’m 25 weeks pregnant now, and proud of myself for still keeping the fitness going! I keep the intensity lower of course, but getting out there is great for me both physically and mentally, so I’m glad I’ve been able to keep it up. 🙂
Monday: restorative lunchtime yoga class. It was pouring rain and super dreary (and also Monday!), and I was working from home and decided to hit up Edge Yoga via ClassPass (<- affiliate link for $40 off) last minute for their noon class. One of my favorite instructors, Rachel, was teaching, and she said she took one look at the weather and the room’s energy level and decided to do a more restorative class. It was perfect and cozy!
Rachel is also great about providing pregnancy modifications for me when necessary, which I appreciate! I actually tried my first legit prenatal yoga class last week, but I found that at this point it was a bit too slow for me – I felt like we spent the whole class setting up props. I think I’ll love it when I’m farther along and moving much more slowly, but for now I’ve decided I want to keep going to my favorite (lower key – not crazy power yoga obviously) regular yoga classes and just modifying when necessary. 🙂
Tuesday: morning jog/walk date with Sokphal! We did about 4 miles total and jogged about half, which was just the right amount. It felt really good to get out there – loving these cooler temps!
Wednesday: this was another last minute decision – I was working downtown and got more work done in the morning than I intended, and at about 11:40 I decided, you know what? I think I’d love to treat myself to a noon yoga class at Epic Yoga via ClassPass. I LOVE that studio – so beautiful. And I like the Wednesday instructor – she leads a nice, not too intense, but still energizing, flow. I always have a pair of “just in case” yoga clothes on hand at my co-working space, so I grabbed them and headed over! So glad I went. I felt great after mentally – so calm.
Obligatory baby bump mirror selfie. 🙂 Look, I finally changed shirts! Occasionally I do swap out my “just in case” yoga clothes, I promise. It’s easier though because I don’t get sweaty at all in these classes, so I can wear them more than once and they don’t get stinky!
Thursday: morning boot camp class with my workout buddies Chelsea and Kathleen! We hit up Urban Athletic Club in Georgetown via ClassPass. I always love our morning workout dates – and it’s good for me to still get some strength work in, too! I tell you – pull ups and push ups/planks (and, pretty much everything, lol) are getting sooo much harder with the extra weight I’m carrying! It’s like a built in extra dumbbell or two. 🙂
We forgot to get a picture together, but here’s the workout we did. I did a plank hold with leg lifts instead of the abmat sit ups, but otherwise everything was fine without modifications (besides just going more slowly)!
Friday: rest day! Matt and I took the dogs on a nice walk this morning, but otherwise taking it easy.
As for this weekend, I don’t have any fitness specially planned, but I’m sure we’ll get out for a hike or two with the dogs if the weather holds!
Have a great weekend guys – see you back here on Monday!
What was the most fun workout you did this week?
