3 “Pregnancy Friendly” Travel Workouts

Pura Vida…

Means that no matter what your current situation is, life for someone else can always be less fortunate than your own and no matter how little or how much you have in life, we are all here together and life is short…so start living the “pura- vida lifestyle”.

This will be my first post since I got back from my honeymoon in Tamarindo, Costa Rica and let me tell you, IT WAS AMAZING!

As you all know, Anthony and I live a very similar life style. We both enjoy being active, love the sun + eating healthy food.  Being over 5 months pregnant you can imagine this trip was filled with relaxation and crazy amounts of soda water. This was the first time we actually stayed in a condominium for a vacation and it was life changing. We were able to do everything we wanted to do and eat the way we like. We have always gone on vacation but usually stayed in a hotel room with little to nothing to cook with. This vacation was filled with rotisserie chicken, veggies, and plantain chips.

Traveling pregnant, I did what I could with what I had as far as workouts go.

During the week we hit short sessions with bands and bodyweight stuff. I packed 2 long bands (1/2 inch+ 1 inch), a hip circle, as well as a suspension trainer.

We walked a SHIT TON everyday (10-12 miles at least).

We ate a lot of protein and veggies through out the day and drink lots of water. That costa rican sun is no joke.
