Staying Active While Pregnant – and comfy & cute with C9 Champion

Are you staying active while pregnant? It’s difficult when you’re walking around with extra weight and swollen ankles, but it’s important. Today, I’m going to discuss how I stay and comfy active while pregnant! I partnered with C9 Champion for this feature.

At my very first doctor’s appointment, I was ordered to drink a gallon of water a day and to be as active as possible. When you work from home like I do, staying active isn’t always easy. I sit on my computer for hours and my breaks in between work are spent eating and resting my pretty little baby bump. “I don’t have time to work out,” I thought. Also, drinking a gallon of water a day seems like a heck of a chore. However, I’ve made it my mission to accomplish all of the doctor’s orders and I hope that this quick little post will help you as well.

First of all, I want to mention my new workout gear from C9 Champion. Just like most women, I get super excited about new clothing. Give me a new dress and I’ll find a place to wear it. The same goes with workout gear – give me a new workout  set and you’ll find me running and walking more than I would on a typical day. Whatever motivates you, right?

How I’m staying active while pregnant

Walking Outdoors

At 5 months pregnant, I’m staying as active as possible. My favorite activity is walking. Not only is it a time for me to be outdoors, take in the fresh autumn air, and listen to the Florida birds chirp, but it’s a beautiful time for husband and I to spend quality time together. It’s a time for us to talk about our week. There’s something about the crisp autumn air that makes me enjoy life a little bit more than usual. Walking in our local nature trails makes it so much easier to stay active because it’s surely doesn’t feel like a workout. If you have a dedicate space to walk – take advantage of it!

Taking on more physical chores

I am not and will never claim to be an ideal housewife. I take on minimal chores, especially ones that require lots of movement. I leave the yard work and vacuuming to my sweet man. Now, I’m changing that. Anything that will add to my daily steps is a bonus in my book. I need to prepare to chase a toddler around in a couple years!

Mall Walking

Mall walking is specifically something that my doctor recommended to me. Being that I live in the torturous Florida heat, she suggested mall walking. However, this isn’t the mall walking that we all think of. Basically, stopping in stores or window shopping isn’t the way to go. We’re talking moving at a nice and steady pace. It’s actually really fun and some malls even have a recommended path for you to follow.
