Hi everyone ,
i was a real gym bunny before I got pregnant. Pre pregnancy I lost 2 stone thorugh running ( I have done a marathon and numerous half marathons). I also became addicted to spin classes , going at least 4 times a week. Since found out I was pregnant about 4 months ago I have done absolutely n-o-t-h-i-n-g ! Getting out of bed in the morning seems to be the most I can manage at the moment , although I am starting to feel much more like myself again as I go into the Second Trimester. I don't want to put on huge amounts of weight and I would like to remain toned.
Any ideas on how to get motivated to get back to the gym ?
Thanks for your help ......

That's too much for most people, but shows that it really does depend on what you're used to. There are a few things that should be avoided:
