Kim Kardashian is no newbie when it comes to being criticized especially when it has to do with her weight.
As the world knows, Kim Kardashian has entered a new stage in her life, pregnancy. It is no secret that when people become pregnant, they gain a lot of weight, so why is Kim Kardashian getting judged for being “fat” while pregnant?
Her weight story has been on dozens of magazine covers for millions of people to see. Covers stretch from, “Kim Kardashian’s Pregnancy Weight Gain A Ploy To Score Weight Loss Deal” to “Pregnant Kim’s Nightmare: 65-lb Weight Gain”. Others suggest that she has gained 200 pounds and Kanye is threatening to leave her if she does not lose the weight. It seems like the media is taking ownership of her body and writing and saying whatever it wants to about it.
Pre-pregnancy Kim has always been known for her fabulous curves and gorgeous looks. She has always had a rockin’ body and her workout ethic is no secret. She goes to the gym one to two times a day with a personal trainer and eats very healthy. She kept this same routine once she got pregnant due to media scrutiny, which made people wonder: is it okay to workout hardcore while you are pregnant? Medical journalist Colette Bouchez states,
“Not only is it okay to participate in fitness activities during pregnancy,
but doing so can have a positive impact on both baby and mom.”
But just because it is safe to workout, does not mean there aren’t certain restrictions. Sue Fleming, certified fitness instructor and founder of buff-fitness.com revealed,
“After the four month, your balance is affected. So that’s when you
don’t want to do anything that will put your body in an unstable
position, which is any exercise or activity that requires balance.”
To state the obvious, DON’T OVER DO IT. Non-pregnant people tend to workout until they are fatigued. It is recommended for pregnant women to stop working out before they hit exhaustion.
One way too assess yourself is try having a conversation while exercising, if the task is too hard to do both simultaneously, that means your working out too hard.
