What You Put in Your Body Affects Your Health Greatly

I have always been one of those people who could eat whatever they wanted and never gain weight, and due to that fact, I never used to put much thought into what I ate. When I started experiencing health problems, my doctor ordered some tests and found that I was experiencing anemia due to an iron-deficient diet. I am grateful I had this "wake up call" before I continued to eat a bad diet for the rest of my life, because I soon also realized my diet was lacking vitamins and minerals. I changed my eating habits and began to feel much better. I began juicing to take advantage of all of the vitamins and minerals in healthy, fresh juice. I have learned a lot about health during my commitment to leading a healthier lifestyle, so I decided to start a blog to share my health advice with the world!

3 Things To Remember When It Comes To Exercising During Pregnancy

If you exercised regularly before you got pregnant, then you should be fine to continue exercising after you are pregnant. However, keep in mind that you will likely feel different and your body will be going through some major changes. Because of this, you need to look at exercise a bit differently. This article will discuss 3 important things to remember when it comes to exercising during pregnancy. 

Ask Your Doctor 

If you have any questions regarding exercise whatsoever, be sure to ask your doctor. If you were exercising before you got pregnant, and if you have a healthy and safe pregnancy, then your doctor will likely recommend continuing your fitness regimen. They will tell you not to increase you workouts, though, because this will put your body under stress that it isn't used to. This can be especially harmful for you and your baby. Your doctor will also tell you that you need to avoid and modify some exercises, which will be discussed in the next section. 

Make Modifications 

Since your body is changing and growing a human, it is important to keep the two of you safe. To do this, you will need to make some changes to your fitness routine. Sometimes it is a simple modification, but other times it is finding a different type of workout that works that same muscle group. For example, it is not wise to do crunches on your back after the first trimester because of the pressure that it puts on your organs. However, there are other safe abdominal exercises that you can do, so you will want to do those instead. You may also need to make smaller modifications, such as decreasing your weight on certain exercises, and walking when you feel fatigued during a run. It is also very wise to completely avoid unsafe exercises such as skiing, ice skating, etc. 

Listen To Your Body

The most important thing that you can do when you are exercising while pregnant is to listen to your body. If you feel great, then keep doing what you're doing. If you feel fatigued, stop. It is okay to take a break or call it good for the day if you just aren't feeling it. Also keep in mind that as you get further along in your pregnancy, exercise will become more and more difficult, so it is okay to cut back on the time that you spend exercising each day and also the amount of days that you exercise per week. 

If you have any further concerns about exercising while pregnant, talk to an OB GYN, like those at Mile High OB GYN.
