Hello friends! How are you?? I’m trying to avoid a minor (ok major) meltdown with my blog acting up. Luckily I was able to get this post done!
Even though I’m almost 36 weeks pregnant I’m still sticking with my workouts. I want to keep going as long as I feel good. Getting in a little cardio, strength and stretching really helps me feel stronger and healthier. Lately I’ve been doing mostly barre classes, pilates, yoga and some low impact cardio/strength workouts. Everything feels so much harder!! But lucky for you, I managed to film a quick prenatal barre video a few weeks ago!
This one is short and sweet. It’s about 15 minutes total but it’s a great total body workout. If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you may be familiar with my full-length workouts. I love love love creating these workouts but I’ve reached a decision lately that I am not going to be able to continue to film full-length workouts. It takes a lot of effort and time not just to film these videos but to edit and process them. One of the things I learned at Blogfest this summer was that if you want to create a brand, you can’t give away the whole kitten caboodle at no cost. I hope you all understand that I value every single reader and viewer but I want to move forward making more videos and I simply can’t if they are full-length. However, you can still access all my full-length videos (prenatal and otherwise) if you subscribe to my YouTube channel!
One of my goals someday is to create a fitness DVD and I hope I can achieve this in the near future!
Anyway, this video is perfect for a quick full-body workout. You don’t need any equipment and you can do it anywhere! Remember to consult with your physician before starting this or any other workout. Always listen to your body and do what feels good to you.

Hope your blog issues are resolved soon! That must be SO annoying!
Awesome video! I’ve toned my workouts down a lot these days. If I do too much, I start getting contractions, but I think this is one that I could do without too much issue. And yes, workouts are definitely so much harder! It’s crazy how much our bodies slow down, isn’t it?
I know what you mean about exercising as long as it feels good. I’m only a week ahead of you, but suddenly, at 37 weeks, I didn’t feel like doing any formal workouts this week. Just walking. It’s funny – last week I did some kickboxing, full body and legs strength workouts, HIIT with jumps, a little running (as in, like, a mile) – and this week my body was like, NOPE. TIRED. DONE.
I figure that normally I don’t have to push myself to workout so if I have zero interest in doing so right now, my motivation will come back at some point.
My life goals are to 1. be a great wife, 2. be a present, loving mom, and 3. expand my college/graduate school consulting business so that I have as many clients as I want at any given time.
I’m loving the outfit! Now I want to go workout on a beach somewhere – instead I’m stuck home in the rain with absolutely zero motivation to work out. One of my goals right now is to do yoga regularly enough that I can eventually do a headstand – or even crow! I’m pretty bad at crow haha. Life goal? Visit Asia. More specifically Thailand.
Wow i cant believe you can still plank with a pregnant belly! Planking is hard enough- i cant imagine being able to stay in that position with extra weight pulling my middle down… think of how easy it’s going to be once the baby is born! you’re going to be superwoman!
