THE MINI APARTMENT - second trimester workouts you can do anywhere - sponsored by Pink Blush maternity clothes

Now that I’m in my second trimester (I’m 22 weeks now!), I’ve been devoting more time to working out and staying active. Whether it be going on walks outdoors or following fitness videos on YouTube, getting my sweat on is important to me to stay fit and healthy throughout this second pregnancy.

Only thing is, I was in desperate need of updating my active wear with pieces that actually fit. I’m growing a lot faster this time around, and my previous workout clothes from being pregnant with izzy were a bit snug and constricting, making it hard to get motivated to workout.

But when I do frequent the gym on campus during the semesters, my bag is pretty packed with gym necessities for a good workout sesh. 😉 So take out your own gym bag, and let’s compare!

How To Be A Natural At The Gym

Ahh, the gym. One of the most intimidating yet magical places. Do you dread the thought of heading to the gym? Do you not know where to start once you’re there? If any of these thoughts ever cross your mind:

Do I need a towel? She grabbed a towel..

I probably look like I have no idea what I’m doing.

How does this machine work exactly..?

Which one of these machines will give me a toned bottom..hmm Continue reading
