Accessory Work:

I ditched the burpees and opted for heavy kettlebell swings instead, looking at the intent behind the burpee (fast hip hinging movement). I'm now officially in my 2nd trimester so burpees and kipping are off the table, even though I feel fine doing those movements, they aren't serving me in the long run. 


Active rest day. Worked through a few Functional Progression Flows

This isn't exactly what I did but it's a great resource!



Hi. So sick. Today, I literally slept 80% of the day or at least remained horizontal and watched my fill of grey's anatomy. 

The weeks of travel have caught up with me and my body is just asking for a break! Also, fever and body ache feel 100x worse when pregnant. So I put all my work away, wasn't tempted to do any movement, and just slept. 


And thank god I slept because I feel like a new human.  Today I still kept it easy, but I worked through more functional progression flows


Happy Mother's Day! 

Today the family went on a 5 mile cycling adventure. It is so sunny and glorious in Portland, so biking felt amazing.
