Welp, that wraps up month 4! I’m up eight pounds and feeling amazing. Gym and the local running trails have been really great to me, but my doc did have to tell me to scrub back a bit on intensity. I have the wonderful privilege of having a doctor who is VERY familiar with the bodybuilding world because her husband competes! I am very open with her about my workouts and diet because I want to do what’s best for my baby. This week apparently I pushed too hard. (I guess blacking out should have been my sign to stop, but…like an idiot, I kept going.)
Nutrition. My doc advised that I have a small meal/snack before my workout to help with dizziness, but ALSO told me that post-workout I should replace some calories burned. So cottage cheese + apple slices have been a new go-to.
