It’s the three musts we are told to follow to have a longer lasting healthier life, live with the least amount of stress as possible, eat right and work out.
But, when you’re pregnant this trio is often much more of a difficult regimen to obey. Kym Johnson Herjavec, 41, is no different and she talks about taking it easy, indulges a bit and listen to your body.
The Dancing with the Stars alum is expecting twins so it can be a bit trickier to stay active, for Kym who’s life has been centered around dancing and physical activity being told by doctors to slow down was not an easy task.
“Staying fit can be very tricky when you’re pregnant. You’re exhausted all the time so motivating yourself to work out can be difficult.” She explains.
She went on to admit, “Personally, my doctor advised me not to exercise at all for the first three months. You can imagine how hard this was for me since I’ve been an active person my whole life.”
Out of the ordinary cravings is a typical occurrence during pregnancy and can be hard to manage at times. Johnson-Herjavec shared that in the beginning, she was caving into the cravings with maybe not the best choices, “One of the first cravings I had was chocolate croissants- I just couldn’t get enough! At first, I felt guilty because I normally eat very clean, but I learned to go easy on myself.” She went on to admit she made a few pit stops at the golden arches for some French fries.
The mirror ball winner cleaned up her act quick without sacrificing her cravings. She opts for toast and Nutella when she’s craving that croissant and when she feels t that urge coming on for some McDonald’s fries she prepares sweet potato fries in an air fryer.
And last, on the dancer’s blog, The Bod By Kym, she shares her words of wisdom about experiencing pregnancy for her first time. “Every pregnancy is different so it’s really important to listen to your body.” She goes on to stress the most important thing to remember, “My advice to any Mum-to-be is to stay positive and as stress-free as possible.”
Thanks Kym for the great and useful advice!
