Fit Mom To-Be: Eating for Two
Do you want to be a fit mom to-be?
Perhaps you’re expecting and want to be as healthy as possible during your pregnancy. Or maybe you hope to one day be pregnant and want to be healthy throughout your pregnancy. Whatever your reasoning, my new series: Fit Mom To-Be is for you and today’s video “Healthy Eating for Two” is the first of many important videos on doing just that! Join me as I eat (healthfully of course), exercise and deal with the struggles of pregnancy for the next 6 months…or until my due date (EDD: 10/3/16!)
How you eat during pregnancy will in part make a healthy or not so healthy baby. In fact, what you eat can literally change your cells and genetic make up! Probably regretting that doughnut you had for lunch, huh? So the saying is true “you are what you eat.” Now your baby is what YOU eat! This video will explain what I am doing to maintain a healthy diet throughout my pregnancy and it may not work for you. That is something you have to decide for yourself or enlist the help of a registered dietitian to help you (like me!) put together a plan that works for you. Remember, consistency is key!
There’s so much more to talk about that’s not included in this video so make sure you subscribe and tune in each week to see what’s next on the agenda. Next week, personal trainer, Jesa Culy, will take me through a prenatal workout. Yes, you can still workout during your pregnancy. If you have not been exercising, pregnancy is not the time to start a new weight or running routine. This is why it is important to get started BEFORE you become pregnant! We can also help you with that! I would love to hear what you do during your pregnancy to stay healthy!
Stay healthy ladies,

P.S. I forgot to include that I spend right around $100/week on groceries for myself and my husband…proof that you can eat healthy on a budget! That includes grass fed beef, wild caught fish and free range eggs! More on that in another video 🙂
