COMMENT BELOW 😁 I want to provide the BEST content possible for my community! I would love to know what you want to see MORE of. Obviously, I’m pregnant right now so there’s not much I can do in terms of NEW exercise videos (hence I’m posting some old ones). What can I provide you with that you need right now and ...even... what do you want to see LESS of ! Open to all opinions 😁👏 www.kaylaitsines.com/app #bbg2019#34weekspregnant
#bbg2019#bbgprogress sweatandsparkledaily says “ I’ve always started back with workouts as soon as I’ve gotten clearance from my midwives. There’s something about spending a little time each day doing something that I enjoyed before having children that makes me feel like myself, when I’m 💯 in a caregiver role. The picture on the left is just before starting BBG again last April (11 weeks postpartum) and the one on the right is last Friday finishing week 44" www.kaylaitsines.com/app
Lots of ladies have been asking if there are any foods I've just HAD to have during pregnancy. Honestly, there are more foods that I just DON'T want to eat. These include grilled fish, asian greens and anything that can cause reflux because mine has been SO bad. I am still eating lots of watermelon but that's always been my favourite! Often what you DO or DON'T feel like eating is your body sending you a message. LISTEN to your body! It knows what it needs. www.kaylaitsines.com/app @memysmoothiesandlife
One of my favourite tips for staying motivated is to WRITE IT DOWN. Whatever your fitness goal is or even a favourite motivational quote, write it down or print it out. Put it everywhere you will see it. Great places are a bathroom mirror, fridge door, pantry door or even on your computer screen! It will be a reminder to yourself to keep going and not to give up when you feel like quitting. https://www.kaylaitsines.com/blogs/lifestyle/17089819-my-top-4-tips-to-keep-yourself-motivated
Creating a ROUTINE is so important in achieving your health and fitness goals. To save you ladies some time, here's an example of how you could structure your weekly #BBG or #BBGStronger workouts. 📅🤓 Note - ALL BBG resistance sessions are ONLY ever 28 minutes. ✅MONDAY: Resistance - Arms and abs ✅TUESDAY: LISS - 30 minute walk ✅WEDNESDAY: Resistance - Full body ✅THURSDAY: LISS - 30 minute walk ✅FRIDAY: Resistance - Legs ✅SATURDAY: LISS - 30 minute walk ✅SUNDAY: Rest www.kaylaitsines.com/app
Ladies, real talk. Each of us internalise SO many thoughts and conversations, some of which are really hard. From the outside looking in, it's impossible to see what other people are thinking and feeling. I wanted to touch on this topic and talk about something that I am currently going through. How many of you ACTUALLY like/liked being pregnant during all stages of pregnancy? I honestly feel so lucky to be a woman and be able to bring new life into the world. It's incredible what the female body can handle and continue to be amazed how my body is growing and changing to. I am so excited to finally be meeting her SOON..but have I enjoyed being pregnant? As a trainer and someone who enjoys being very active, initially I struggled with the concept of not training and doing the things I’m used to. I also had so many different internal conversations that relate to this journey that I am sure the #BBGmums out there can relate to. There is so much uncertainty with pregnancy, especially if its your first time and for me this is. Thinking "What will my body feel like AFTER I give birth?" "When will I be able to train again and feel comfortable?" "Will everything be ok?". I love my baby body and am so grateful to have had such a life changing experience. It's opened my eyes and allowed me to see things from a different perspective. But ladies, it's been a mentally, physically and emotionally challenging time in my life and I am sure all women with children or who are soon to have, can relate. Am I excited to get back to training the way I love? As soon as I have clearance from my doctor, YES absolutely. Not only for my sake but to give my baby girl a STRONG, FIT and HEALTHY role model from day one. I am so grateful for this journey and look forward to all stages of it, but the important message i'm trying to send here is that everyone goes through these emotions regardless of whether they relate to pregnancy or not. The feeling of uncertainty or insecurity or even a little fear. The most important thing to remember here is it's not just about the hard times and hard conversations you have internally, but its how you deal it. #thoughts www.kaylaitsines.com/app
I believe a really IMPORTANT lesson to learn, is to enjoy the pleasure of your own company. To be able to spend a day, alone, doing the things that YOU like. Whether it's taking yourself to the beach, a cafe, or just relaxing. Spend time to touch base with you and how YOU are feeling, mind AND body. Use this time to reflect on whats happening in your life. Ladies I know it's not always easy because we are all busy, but this is just another form of self care, no different to a workout. I LOVE listening to #podcasts in my alone time which is sometimes just going for a walk. Right now I'm tuning into 'Dr. Death', it is SO interesting, I definitely recommend it!!! I had 2 FULL hours of alone time last week and I felt SO refreshed afterwards. You will too!!! www.kaylaitsines.com/app @discovermnl
People often ask me for tips on #nutrition and the best place to start whether you're pregnant, new to fitness or just wanting to improve your knowledge is to understand the purpose of nutrition and what it means. The SIMPLE definition of nutrition is providing your body with the required nourishment for health and growth, it is how food affects your body’s health. Head to my blog for ALL you need to know about nutrition. https://www.kaylaitsines.com/blogs/education/what-is-nutrition-key-nutrition-terms-explained @walderwellness

[[WARM UP]] Attention, pregnant AND not pregnant ladies. I cannot express the importance of selecting the WARMUP option in the @sweat app PRE workout. Warming up is KEY in preparing both physically and mentally for your workout, it can help your body to move better and it can reduce the chance of an injury. 😊Within the #Sweat app you will find a choice of three different warm up types to complete before you jump (literally😂) into your workout!
Cardio: low-intensity cardio, such as walking, cycling, running or rowing. Movement: dynamic stretches and movement preparation-type exercises. Cardio & Movement: this is the one I recommend selecting if you can! Short on time? Don't worry. Each routine is ONLY approximately 7 minutes long 😁 and is so worth taking the time. .
I'm going to let you in on a PREGNANCY tip I wish somebody had told me about...DO NOT buy any NEW shoes with laces hahaha. I am not sure I understood how MUCH effort it was to tie shoelaces with a human growing inside you. I am currently just wearing slip on APL's and AloYoga slides because they are the easiest option for me (and so comfortable). What's your go-to shoe brand for PREGNANCY or NON PREGNANCY? #commentbelow www.kaylaitsines.com/app
