It can be mentally challenging, having athlete mindset in pregnancy.
But know thatscaling back or adjusting movements and exercise routine in pregnancy is not a sign of weakness. Or laziness. Or less strong or fit! Coming from a place of experience and education, you are listening to your body and making the temporary necessary adjustments.
Because the ultimate goal is to have a happy healthy parent in pregnancy and postpartum and if the fitness (or even aesthetic) goals are getting in the way of this, how is it beneficial for anyone?
It can be a humbling experience, this exercise pregnancy journey but one that you can feel success in, if you know where and how to find it.
So check the ego at the door. Be ready to pick it back up, along with the nappy bags, post baby (in a timely manner of course!).
