WEEK

10

MONDAY

Fitness: Full Lunges, 10 reps on each side

(Use light dumbbells, soup cans, or no weight at all.) Stand in a forward lunge, feeling your weight in your front leg and sticking your booty slightly back while reaching your arms gently out in front of you. Exhale to stand as you bring your arms to your side {squeezing those triceps} as you stand up, bringing your left leg all the way through and up, which greatly challenges your core {for added balance, keep your back leg on the ground}. Inhale to return to your starting lunge. Continue for 10 reps; then switch sides.

TUESDAY

Superfood of the Day: Cheese (pasteurized)

Cheese provides concentrated amounts of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous for your unborn baby to grow strong bones. Eat reduced-fat cheeses to reduce cholesterol and calorie intake. Enjoy cheese as a snack on a whole-grain cracker, as a pairing with grapes or in an egg-white omelet.

WEDNESDAY

Meditation: Self Love and Care

Remember to take care of yourself. Check in and ask yourself what YOU need. Is it a massage or support with chores? Maybe you need a couple of extra naps. Taking care of yourself is the most important thing to remember to do. Ask for what you want. When you are mindful of your own needs, you will notice how supported you feel and how at ease and in flow your life will be.

THURSDAY

Fitness: 30-Minute Walk

Recommended: Use BellyBuds and create your own music playlist with our free VoiceShare app. Play your favorite songs to your little one!

Taking a walk in nature brings a calm, loving energy to your system. You and your baby will feel it. Look at the flowers s, smell the air and feel the breeze. When you awaken your senses, your body comes alive and rejuvenation occurs. Walking for just 30 minutes daily during your pregnancy will help keep your heart strong and muscles toned.

 

FRIDAY

Beauty: Beauty Mask

Try a homemade beauty mask to tighten pores and leave your face rejuvenated. Use 1 cup of plain organic yogurt. Add 1 tablespoon of orange juice with pulp and 1 teaspoon of aloe.
