Can you lose 10 pounds in one day? No, you definitely can't**
**If you can...wow, we should talk
Can I? Yes! If I ever go into labor....
I've exercised throughout my pregnancy. Sure some weeks have been lazier than others, but some have been amazing (ah-hem, half marathon during first trimester).
I've obviously been doing a lot of walking the last few weeks.
Because that's what people tell you to do, right?
This morning I thought I would try to kick it up in a higher gear and see if I could get things moving.
I've been having contractions for the last 4-5 days and they've been about 30 minutes apart.
Which basically means nothing.
Here is the treadmill incline workout I came up with.
(Note: I am not a doctor or a trainer, this is my workout and if you choose to do it, it is at your own risk. If you are also a billion weeks pregnant, it may not be a good idea at all.***)
***Unless it puts me into REAL labor, then I'm going to sell this bitch.
Being SUPER pregnant, I definitely need a good warm up, so I started out with a 10 minute
waddle warm up walk at 3.2mph.
Cool down: Once again, big momma needs a long cool down, so I walked for 10 minutes at 3.2 mph (at a zero incline).
Followed up with some hip opening yoga poses- frog, cobbler, half pigeon, & happy baby, held for 3-5 minutes each.
The bigger I get, the more ridiculous these look.
So, there you have it. Hopefully I go into labor, but if not I have an appointment today with my midwife.
Also, this is a great workout if you're not pregnant. I would bump each incline up by one (except the 12's) and complete at a little bit faster walk (3.7 mph maybe?)
