I know that many of you, like me, often need a little (okay, A LOTTA) push sometimes to work out. Because seriously, it does not matter how regularly I work out – I hate it every time.

I’m solidly into my second trimester with this, my second pregnancy, and I’ve definitely been relying on several items to make this time easier/more enjoyable.
