💕 Bosu Workout 💕 It is still so shocking to see people who comment so negatively toward a fit pregnant woman: "She only cares about her looks and not the baby!" "All of that activity is NOT good for her unborn child." "She is taunting other mothers out there." Ok let's get some things straight: 1. Hell yeah I care about how I look. I love looking good and taking care of my body for not only my husband, but for also myself. When you look good, you feel even better. It's an instant self-esteem boost. And as far as not caring about the health of my unborn baby, don't you ever think that I workout FOR the health of my unborn baby? 2. Actuallyyyyy... working out during pregnancy results in a healthier labor, delivery, and baby AND I have my doctor's approval. 3. Nope, not taunting or bragging-just making a point that if you are up for it & are physically able to, WHY NOT? It's called motivation. Now, some facts about working out during pregnancy: FACT: Research shows you might put on 7 pounds less than pregnant women who don’t work out, while still staying within the healthy weight-gain range. FACT: Regular exercisers are 75 percent less likely to need a forceps delivery, 55 percent less likely to have an episiotomy and up to four times less likely to have a Cesarean section. FACT: You lower your gestational diabetes risk by as much as 27 percent and even if you do develop it—and many fit women do because genetics and age play a significant role—exercise may help prevent or delay your need for insulin or other medications. FACT: Your child may have a healthier heart. The developing babies of prenatal exercisers have more efficient hearts than those of non-exercisers. It's sad that we still live in a day and age where people think pregnant ladies are crippled. Well, guess what? We're not. All I am saying is if your doctor has given you the approval to workout, then why not? You may choose to workout during your pregnancy or you may choose not to-it is your choice and you have your own reasonings. But don't you dare put ME down for my choice. And do not let others put you down for yours as well.
Tanto a Sarah Stage como a Chontel Duncan les han llovido miles de críticas por simplemente lucir abdominales en su época de gestación y seguirse ejercitando. Pero entre toda esa frenética ola de comentarios, otra bloguera fitness que atraviesa por su mismo proceso, por primera vez enfrenta – y con hechos- los comentarios malintencionados.
Conozcan a Sia Cooper, creadora del portal “Diary of a fit mommy”:
Ella explica todos los beneficios que trae entrenar mientras se está embarazada: primero, no hay ninguna contraindicación médica. Segundo, hay menos riesgos de enfermedades tanto para la madre como para el hijo. Se evitan diabetes y problemas cardíacos. Cuarto, a la hora del parto resulta más fácil para la madre dar a luz.
Entre muchas otras ventajas. Hace cardio 30 minutos todos los días.
Ella tiene 111 mil seguidores en Instagram. Y al igual que Sarah o Chontel, también recibe críticas y afirma lo mismo que estas dos: la rutina no es igual para todas las madres y solo las inspira para que se cuiden, reportó el portal “Cosmopolitan”.
