It is pretty refreshing to see an HLB eating doughnuts all of the day.  Real ones.  Not gluten free, baked, and made with stevia. I don't know that she eats the entire portions of her foods though because she is very tiny.  Even pregnant.

It does worry me that she works out almost every day while pregnant.  There's exercise and then there's overexercise.  I think she's in the overexercise category.  Not sure any doc would actually recommend that.

i think shes okay because shes doing at such a slow (for her ) pace and she goes to lots of check ups and im sure she would not do it if she thought it was harmful to the baby (which i dont think it is i just think she has major exercise addiction)

 

im just curious how shell deal with not being able to exercise after giving birth because it looks like shes never really took a break..well..ever..even injured she would cross train and spin for hours a day.

Mayo Clinic recommends at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise every day.  I don't think she's being that nuts.

I feel like she'll be in the pool with in a week of giving birth. I agree that she has some compulsion about exercise. She said it was her goal to run one ten miler in july and she's run that distance multiple times this month already.

Eww, I hope not because she'll be bleeding for a few weeks after she gives birth.

I think someone who is dumb enough to run until her femur breaks will likely have to learn about pelvic organ prolapse the hard way too.

yes. And then when she healed from that she ramped up her running too quickly and had to stop again when her shins started bothering her. probably fractured those too, but she never went to a Dr. to get a true diagnosis.

Exactly. This is why I think she'll come back to running too soon and too much after birth and won't scale back unless she's dragging her uterus behind her as she goes.

I don't think she is necessarily overexercising. I think what she is doing is probably appropriate for her fitness level since she's been quite a competitive runner for over a decade. I've never been in a position to shoot for a sub-3 marathon, so I don't know. But I could imagine that a 2 hr+ half might not be such a difficult effort for someone like her. I read once that she thinks she's capable of a 2:45 marathon one day. If she really is confident that her body could do that then she is unlikely to be overexerting herself right now. She's made it clear that she wouldn't do anything to risk her daughter's health (i.e. pulling out of a half due to poor air quality). I believe her. The femoral stress fractures were more due to undereating than overtraining. She can't have been undereating recently if she was able to become pregnant. I don't think she's an exercise addict as much as she is a very talented runner. Very talented runners run. A lot. I'm really rooting for her to come back to running post-pregnancy healthier and stronger than ever.

take a look at her recent post when she went to a baby shower.  She is SO tiny compared to her friend.  Granted her friend may be a little further along than her, but still.  I have never been pregnant so I don't know these kinds of things, but do you think it's possible that her "excessive" running and body pump is causing her to be so tiny?  Are there damaging effects to that?
