How much MORE should I be eating while pregnant?⁠
If you were wondering, eating for two is most DEFINITELY a MYTH!⁠
You only need between 200 and 300 extra calories a day (depending how far along you are and how active you are) to meet the needs of you and your growing baby.⁠
So what does 200 calories look like?⁠
It is equivalent to around half a sandwich, an apple pie from maccas or 2 bananas. Not much right? ⁠
By all means do NOT starve yourself and treat yourself every now and then because making a baby definitely deserves a pat on the back 😁 but by being conscious of what you are eating MOST of the time and fuelling your body with foods that will keep you full for longer like protein, complex carbs and veggies, you are giving yourself the BEST chance at slowing down the weight gain and keeping yourself and your baby happy and healthy throughout pregnancy and beyond! 😊⁠
Can't get over how little John is here 😫 😍⁠

Kristy has been using my program since she found out she was pregnant. She says:⁠
"I am 27 weeks pregnant and can't speak highly enough of Alex's guided weekly pregnancy program! There is so much variety and the exercises are challenging whilst being simple to follow. I feel so motivated having a guide week to week and would highly recommend this program to anyone.I feel so good both physically and mentally. Strong By Alex reinforces the importance of movement throughout pregnancy".⁠
😍THIS is why I do what I do! ⁠

My boys are hard work. They fight and whinge and stress me out and break stuff and make mess 🤯. Sometimes I feel like I've completely lost myself as a person because I'm so caught up in being their mum. ⁠
The feeling of losing my identity does get me down every now and then and it's sometimes not easy to get out of the funk.⁠
But then I remind myself that this is just a phase in my life. It won't be forever and I will probably look back and miss these days where they were my whole life. So I'm learning to be present, live in the moment and be greatful for every single minute I get to be their mummy 💙.

Here's a little snippet of what I would typically do with a third trimester client. If you're in the Sydney area and are in need of a PT, I still have a few spots available during the week and 1 on Saturday (can also do zoom sessions). Or, for a complete pregnancy exercise guide, head to my website for a week by week video based pregnancy exercise program. 😊
