Pregnant Exercise

I like love kickboxing.
Love actually might not be a strong enough word. 
But, you get the point. 

Before I became pregnant, I was literally kickboxing every day.
And after I found out I was pregnant, I was like, 
"No! Can I still kickbox?"

During my first trimester, I had hardly any ZERO energy.
...my poor husband...
But now that the second trimester has shown up, my energy levels are rising, and I'm back to exercising.

I feel so much better after a good workout. [Especially kickboxing.]
And the fact that I can open the window after I'm done is an enormous plus.

Side note: This winter is awesome.

Granted, I don't push myself nearly as hard as I did before I became pregnant.
I don't jump around.
At all.
And sometimes I skip a day altogether.
But that's okay. 
Women who exercise during pregnancy are more in tune with their bodies
and they can tell when it's time to give it a rest.

On an unrelated note:
My thumbnail broke today.
Now it's all stubby again.
