Staying healthy during pregnancy is a big issue for many women. But it seems it’s not a big deal for the New Zealand-born Australian professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd. She has been seen working out in the gym during her pregnancy and she recently gushed about her pregnancy diet secrets and diet cravings. Have a look at her pregnancy diet and workout secrets over here.
Learning of the Pregnancy
The talented dancer learned about the pregnancy when she was just a few weeks in the season 22 of Dancing with the Stars (2005-Present) show. She didn’t have an easy first trimester as she was quite sick and felt nauseated most of the times. She was putting in a lot of hard work in competing for the show and eventually won it with model Nyle DiMarco.
The mommy-to-be has not given up working out since she learned about her pregnancy. She is into weight training and cardio exercises, reports Inquisitr. She even has a fitness tip for people who have trouble keeping up with doing cardio at a stretch because of lack of concentration. You must try doing cardio and weights together. It will help you stay focused. For instance, you can do cardio like running on a treadmill for 15 minutes and then try on weights for the next 15 minutes. This routine can be repeated until you are really tired. It is pertinent to add here that Murgatroyd is also doing dancing which is undoubtedly a great exercise option.
The diva does not like to look pretty when she heads to the gym because she loves to sweat there. If she doesn’t sweat, she feels that she has not worked out properly. Peta never wears any fancy or sexy outfit to the gym. She opts for simple options like crop tops, fluffy pants and puts her hair up in a bun, she shared this with Hollywood Life a few months back.
Dancing is a Great Workout
The reality star believes that dancing is a great and fun workout. She thinks that it’s so exciting and interesting that you can never get bored of it. It’s a workout that can be done by everyone, either alone or with a partner. There are so many dancing styles that you can choose whichever you like and you can even tailor it to suit your needs. Dancing is a perfect tool for staying healthy, losing weight and exercising at the same time. Some people are scared of dancing because they believe they would fumble over steps in a class. They must know that it’s completely okay.
The owner of PETA JANE products thinks that she is really lucky that she didn’t indulge in junk foods before she was pregnant and opted for healthy foods. The result of such choices is that she does not crave McDonalds’ and unhealthy foods like doughnuts. (Like most women do)
Pregnancy Diet Secrets
Though, the dancing sensation does not have big crazy diet cravings but she does have a bit of a crazy diet, she told People. She craves fresh fruits with pickles and often has both at the same time. She also craves organic salsa and pineapples along with two pickles at the same time.
Fewer Body Changes Due to Fitness
The dad of the baby and DWTS professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy recently stated that adoption of a clean lifestyle has made pregnancy easier for Peta. He is fascinated by how pregnancy has changed her body. He goes to the ultrasounds with her and thinks that the entire experience is incredible.
The Excitement of Dad-to-be
Peta and Maks are a lovely couple who are on cloud nine right now. They got engaged in December 2015 and are planning the wedding for Summer of 2017. Peta thinks that the timing of their baby’s arrival (which is January 2017) is perfect. Maks adds that the baby would be a lovely addition to the wedding party. He even calls the baby a wonderful tiny addition. He expects the baby to be a girl because he thinks a miniature version of himself would be a bit of a trouble to manage. The cute couple has no idea about the gender of the baby yet.
Peta further added that she is looking forward to nurturing the baby and will probably make the baby the center of their world. The couple is looking forward to putting all their energies into the beautiful soul.
We hope you have a healthy pregnancy Peta and a healthy baby too. Best Wishes!!
