Well here we go....it's the start of a new journey....the start of my Fit Pregnancy. Well here we go....it's the start of a new journey....the start of my Fit Pregnancy. I'm about 6 weeks pregnant with Baby #2, and I am determined for this to be a fit pregnancy.

I'm about 6 weeks pregnant with Baby #2, and I am determined for this to be a fit pregnancy. I am determined to continue my healthy lifestyle....and that includes the way I eat....not just working out! I shared last week how I planned to stay Sugar Free throughout my pregnancy, and even past the end of the year. (Since my original commitment was through the year 2015). I also shared a photo of what I looked like towards the end of my previous pregnancy. I was 70-75lbs heavier, and mostly just did Yoga and walked. This pregnancy though, I am determined for it to be DIFFERENT! I would love to look similar to the way I do in this photo, just with a belly! To some this may be unrealistic, but I believe if I continue to workout and take care of myself, and eat good food, then it can happen! And it will be perfectly healthy as well! [bctt tweet="Try these tips to have a FIT PREGNANCY with @BrittanySuell #LeaveYourLegacy #Fitpregnancy #Fortwofitness"] Here are a few ways I plan to have a FIT PREGNANCY! 1) EAT WELL!
Now this is easier said than done....especially since last night I devoured a bag of Doritos, (mostly by myself). But I want be honest here! Especially during this first trimester, that is going to be incredibly difficult, but I will keep trying!
Yoga ALL THE TIME! During this pregnancy! Last time I did Yoga 1-2 times a week and I know it helped make my pregnancy and labor go great! (Read my birth story here) This time it will be even easier since I teach 4-5 classes per week.
3) WORKING OUT IN GENERAL
I want to stay consistent at my Fit4Mom Classes, even through being tired. I want to stay motivated and active!
4) KEEP RUNNING!
This may sound crazy, but I want to KEEP RUNNING throughout my pregnancy. Last time I stopped because I got so tired, and late in my pregnancy I regretted it. I felt like I couldn't start running again when I hadn't been doing it, and I missed running. I missed getting my sweat on in general! So this time, I'm going to keep running. Even just short distances! I will say that I'm starting on the right foot though. I will be running a half marathon this Sunday, and then another on November 15th! Which will put me into the 2nd trimester, (or close at least), which is usually when energy comes back anyways, so I should be able to just keep going!
It is important to me to stay healthy! Although it does seem freeing to use the excuse of being pregnant to eat any and everything I want....and sometimes I may do that. (just not with sugar). But for the most part, I want to eat healthy and stay active, and I know it will pay off!

Here's a little blurb about getting FIT with my FAMILY! Check out this week's challenges HERE, and have fun getting active with your family! #LeaveYourLegacy My husband, son, and I love to workout together! Zander and I go to Stroller Strides on week days, and we take advantage of the weekends to ride our bike together. We recently introduced Zander to bike riding when we got our bike trailer, and since then he can't get enough of it. We love to play outside and run around together. Even though Zander is still small, we are constantly modeling an active lifestyle by getting outside and moving together. I know once he is big enough he will join right in and kick my butt at all of the activities! A family that MOVES together, STICKS together! Be the example Momma's.....LEAVE YOUR LEGACY! #FitFamily [bctt tweet="Join the #FitFamily Challenge and WIN a #BOSU via @BrittanySuell @FitApproach @BOSUFitness #sweatpink"] #LeaveYourLegacy
