What I Did: Mish Mash of Activity

Today is Saturday...already! This week has flown by! My due date is next week today! ACK! So crazy. Could happen any day now...or any day after too. Though now I'm more leaning towards wanting to go early not because I'm sick of being pregnant but I'm so excited to meet my little guy or girl. Anyhow here's what I did to induce labour...I mean to stay active ;)

Warm up: 
About 10 minutes of my MuTu system stretches and core exercises that include squats, some bands, ball between the knee squeezes and other such exercises.

First I did a 20 minute walk. I know, it sounds lame but I really enjoy just being able to get out (except for all those stupid mini flies...the downside of living near a lake I guess). As light as walking is I can see how it can help get contractions going, I tend to feel extra pressure down low in my belly almost immediately!
Then after I got home I did Tiffany Rothe's ten minute "Pretty Positive Pregnancy" toning video here;
Total Time: about 40 minutes
HR: after the video it was 130-140 and I assume near the same during my walk
Sweat'o'Metre: I got the body temp up during the walk and video but not much sweat
Burn'o'Metre: biceps and shoulders man, she kills me in this video I've gone from cans of beans to cans of soup :P

What I did: More Dancing

Today I was going to take it easy...then I put on my dance playlist as I washed dishes and couldn't help but start to shake it so I figured why not do one of my favorite refit playlists since I was in such a dancy mood. Also I seemed to have the energy today! I'm 1.5 weeks away from my due date can't wait to meet this little baby squirming around inside! I hope they have enjoyed the "trip" through my workouts!

Warm up: I did some light stretches before starting the video which included a warm up video (Welcome to Miami)

Workout: Refit's Playlist workout #2, I skipped the two Christmas ones...wasn't feeling like  bringing on the snow just yet even if they were hip wiggling hot salsa ones.
The video that had me smiling today and most days was this one (ahem...I may or may not have just had a piece of chocolate bunny before my workout...)
Total Time: 37 min
HR: 160ish
Sweat'o'Metre: oh boy I put a bit more bounce in it today and had some light trickles from the bangs (dang it I just washed and styled my hair too haha)
Burn'o'Metre: felt it in the calves during "Do you love me" and in the butt for some of the squat moves in the other videos
sorry bout the grainy quality pic today
I'm almost there!!!
