I received a question from a reader of mine, Aliya, on yesterday's post. She wrote:

I plan to have a baby too, but I can say that if I can look like yoy pregnant I will be so happy! You look shape...
Can you tell us what do you eat during your day and how much do you exercise during the week (one or 2 times????)

First, thank you so much for the compliment. It feels great when people tell you that you look great in general but when you're pregnant it's that much better due to the fact that you don't feel so hot. So big hugs and kisses to you Aliya and all my other readers for always putting a smile on my face with your kindness!!!

Now, to answer the questions.

1. What do I eat during the day? It changes from day to day so it's very difficult for me to tell you exactly what I eat on a daily basis. However I can tell you the following, I eat fruits & vegetables daily, I have milk every day, I take Materna daily, I drink lots of water, I have yogurt every day, and I eat 6 times a day. Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, supper, snack. Decent size portions but more often. What really helped me a lot in knowing if I'm getting the right amount of nutrients is the web site Baby Fit. They have a nutrition tracker where you write in your goal weight gain for your pregnancy and it tells you what to eat or also tells you if what you're eating is putting you on the right track in regards to calcium, protein, folate, iron, & calories in order for you to achieve your objective. P.S. I still eat junk food like ice cream, chips, candy, chocolate, etc. however I don't go overboard. I think that if you deprive yourself of something you like, you'll eventually go crazy and binge...which is not good. The key word...MODERATION!

2. How often do I exercise? I work out twice a week, sometimes 3, 1 hour a day. I also take walks during the evening as often as I can. My workout consists of skipping rope for cardio, lunges with weights, squats with weights, boxing (punching the bag, nobody's punching, pull-ups, ab workout but not lying down (no sit-ups lying on your back as of being 3 months pregnant), running, push-ups, upper body work-out with weights, etc. In my class, we do a lot of high-intensity interval training. The only part of my work-out that's really changed from before I was pregnant is the ab workout. And don't forget the stretching, very important.

Hope this helps! And good luck Aliya in your future pregnancy/baby days :)
