I was just wondering if anyone is carrying out a fitness regime while in first tri? I would like to walk an 30 minutes - 1 hour everyday once my flu gets better and maybe swim 4 times a week. Is this being too enthusiastic and ambitious? I am going to take a break from the gym for the first 12 weeks because cannot take any chances but is there any other form of exercise recommended or tried by anyone to keep healthy, fit and to keep that excess weight off? When I first found out on christmas day my initial instinct was to walk less, rest and be very cautious but I think that is just a recipe for piling on pounds too easily.
