Quick disclaimer: I am not a doctor or medical professional of any kind. If you have specific questions about exercising while pregnant, please consult your doctor. This post is based on my own personal experience with morning sickness and working out during my pregnancy. I’ve been getting a ton of questions about working out during my first trimester, especially with regard to exercising when you feel like poo because of morning (all day) sickness. As you probably remember, I…

Somehow, my big ol’ belly and I are still working out! CrossFit has gotten quite a bit more exhausting this past week, but I am still trucking along with my workouts. I mostly feel pretty good,  but, on occasion, I find myself really huffing and puffing to get though exercises that I normally wouldn’t have too much trouble with””even in pregnancy. Not kidding you, I broke up a set of jumping jacking during a warm-up last week because I…

Happy Mamalete Day to all of the moms out there! Mamalete Day is part of a new movement started by my friend Gia of Run Gia Run. Her goal is to inspire moms to live a healthy life and be fit for themselves and their children. What makes a Mamalete? Sweat. A Mamalete is a woman who adores her sport. She knows that being active is part of her core, and she is a better person…

Hi, guys! Here’s the workout that I mentioned the other day. It was a fun one and perfect for this pregnant lady, who definitely appreciated the rest between intervals! Thank goodness for EMOM (Every Minute On the Minute) workouts! The exercises, equipment, and weights that I used: Ball slams ””> Slam Ball @ 15 pounds Ball squats (air squats holding the slam ball) ””> Slam Ball @ 15 pounds Russian Kettlebell Swings ””> Kettlebell @…

Things are definitely slowing down on the exercise front, but I’m still making my workouts happen! That said, here’s a recap of last week’s workouts! Sunday: First Basement Workout Monday: 60-minute pug+podcast walk Tuesday: Off Wednesday: CrossFit Thursday: Home gym workout (It’ll be on CNC early next week!) Friday: 60-minute spinning class Kerrie and I tried out a new spin studio in Quincy called Shred, which was great. (FYI: Your first class is free!) I…

Remember those CrossFit-inspired pregnancy workout tops that I asked you guys for your opinion on? (Btw, thank you for your comments!) Well, the most popular one (WOD +1) is now available for purchase!! FYI: If this top sells well, we will definitely make the other designs available in the future! So, the reason why it took a little while to get this sale up and running is because I was working with TeeSpring to find…

Hi, friends! Here’s a what-I-ate/day-in-the-life recap for all of you! You guys said you enjoyed reading these types of posts on CNC, so I’m keeping them alive! Breakfast Yesterday’s breakfast was two slices of toast with Teddie Peanut Butter and banana slices on top. On the side, I had a container of Greek-style almond milk yogurt, which, like the coconut milk one, was no bueno. The texture just isn’t my jam. Once again, I didn’t…

Thank you for all of your nice comments on my previous post about our new home gym! I’m so excited about it and can’t wait to share my experience as well as the workouts I do there! That said, here’s my first basement workout and, boy, it was a good one! It ended up being a lot harder than it looks! The exercises, equipment, and weights that I used: Ball slams —> Slam Ball @ 15…

The majority of the equipment featured in this post was supplied by Again Faster Equipment. As always, the opinions expressed are honest and all my own. Last Friday, Mal and I received a very special delivery to our house: a CrossFit home gym from Again Faster! It was nearly 700 pounds worth of equipment! Unpacking all of the different equipment was like Christmas morning, and Mal and I were geeking-out hardcore. And, of course, we…

Things are definitely starting to slow down for me on the workout front. I was hit with some serious exhaustion for most of the week, so I haven’t been super motivated to work out. I still made it to a few CrossFit classes and went for a couple of walks, but I can definitely feel my body changing and wanting more low-key activities. That said, here’s a recap of last week’s workouts! Sunday: Off Monday:…

Last week was a good week of workouts for me! At 33 weeks, I definitely feel bigger, slower, and more awkward than I ever have before, but I’m just doing my thing, making modifications when I need to, and having as much fun as possible! That said, here’s a recap of last week’s workouts along with a few videos to give you an idea how my workouts have changed since I’ve entered my third trimester….

Hi, guys! With a massive baby bump on the front of my body, day-to-day activities are definitely getting more and more challenging. Getting out of the car, tying my sneakers, shaving my legs”¦ they’re all a bit of an adventure! Haha! But, I’m still doing unassisted pull-ups at CrossFit, so things could definitely be worse! Honestly, I’m just happy I’m still exercising on a regular basis. I really think it’s helped keep a lot of…

I’m still trucking along with my workouts! My energy levels are all over the place, so some days I’m all about CrossFit and other days I’d much rather lay on the couch. On those days, I’ll typically take Murphy for a long walk. Once I’m up and moving, I always feel a lot more energized. That said, here’s a recap of last week’s workouts! Sunday: Off Monday: CrossFit Monday’s WOD was painful. Check this out”¦…

Another week of workouts is in the books! I only did 3 CrossFit workouts + a couple of long walks with Murphy last week, but I seriously kicked my butt on Sunday with Open WOD 14.5, so I took some extra time to recover. No need to overdo it while I am pregnant, right? That said, here’s a look at last week’s workouts! Sunday: CrossFit I did Open WOD 14.5 and almost died. Ok, that’s…

Last week was actually a pretty low-key week on the workout front. No reason really. I actually felt pretty good, pregnancy-wise. I just felt like taking it easy a little more than usual. Maybe that’s all part of the third trimester? I have no idea, but I’m just going with it. That said, here’s a recap of last week’s workouts! Sunday: Off Monday: CrossFit Monday’s WOD was a lot harder than I thought it would…
