One of the worst parts of pregnancy is the complete inability to find a comfortable position in bed. However, the tossing and turning and constant waking up and repositioning also makes it really convenient when I want to get up early to get a workout in. I usually reserve the super early morning sessions for running, but this morning I decided to go ahead and get my quick weight session over and done with. My legs will thank me on my run tomorrow morning. 24 hours of rest between squats and run is a much better way to go than 9 hours of rest.
This quick workout has mostly replaced my lower body lifting days, since the squat bar was getting to be too much to handle and the bump was getting in the way of my deadlifts.

I also celebrated Monday with a special breakfast. Nutella Stuffed Cinnamon Sugar Muffins. You don't even know how jealous you should be.
