Fit Pregnancy update: Week 28


Week 28

Fit Pregnancy Update:

This pregnancy has been much more of a struggle mentally than physically. More times than not, I feel like a hormonal ticking time bomb ready to explode at the smallest annoyance. The anxiety, moodiness, and irritation are enough to make me feel like I’m losing my mind! These last couple weeks have seemed like a real battle to remain somewhat decent to be around. Some days I feel myself in such a funk that working out does not even seem possible or enjoyable.

What I hate most about theses feelings is that they rob me from enjoying my pregnancy and the last few weeks with my daughter before the baby is born. Recognizing when these negative feelings surface and shifting my mindset to be more positive really helps me through the difficult moments.

As much as I love working out, the idea of exercising when I am feeling down sounds like torture. There have been multiple times this pregnancy when I have actually left the gym early because I just could not get my head in the game. It is perfectly ok to fall off the wagon once in a while and to remember that creating a healthy lifestyle is not a sprint, but rather a marathon. Falling down is part of the process as long as you get back up and keep going.

Pistachios or almonds

Popcorn (I love the black pepper Skinny Pop popcorn)

Suja Juice

Weekly splurge:  Our family went out of town for a mini vacation over the weekend. It was SO hard to resist all the good food and desserts, especially being pregnant. I have been looking for some good french fries my whole pregnancy and finally found some that did the job! I definitely overindulged but it was well worth it. I also enjoyed plenty of sweets like cheesecake and danish.

Exercise: This was not the a good week for working out. It seemed like one conflict after another kept preventing me from squeezing in some time to exercise. I was able to squeeze in 3 small workouts which is not ideal but definitely better than nothing. Check out my Facebook or Instagram page for workout ideas.

Aches and Pains: None this week, yay!

Have you felt the baby move: Yes, some days more than others.

Labor signs: Braxton hicks that really grab my attention every once in a while

Maternity clothes: I have worn a pair of maternity jeans a couple times however my gym clothes and yoga pants have been the most comfortable.

Sleep/Dreams: I wish I could just get one solid nights sleep but my brain just wont shut down. I guess this is what prepares me for having a newborn.

Favorite moment of the week: Spending some time with family out of town.

Looking forward to: Getting things around the house ready for the arrival of our baby girl! I am still waiting for the “nesting” to kick in.

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
