Pregnant lady needs bike trainer

At 6+ months pregnant, I'm no longer able to ride to work. Well, technically, I could, but my cycling gear really hurts when I put it on, my family would yell at me because my ride doesn't take me through the quietest or safest streets, and, well, it's darn cold outside.

To make matters worse, I haven't been excercising at all. I'm convinced my child will plop out a big fat doughnut (a cake doughnut, if you're wondering) and I'll have to spend all my time and effort weaning little Jellybean from refined sugars and white bread.

So, with three months to go in the pregnancy, I've decided to get my act together. I need to start eating right, which means eating green veggies every day, amongst other things. Dropping the Krispy Kremes would also be a good plan.

Although my body hasn't been craving broccoli, it has been craving exercise. Good, old fashioned exercise. My prenatal yoga class is for beached whales, and I'm not at at that stage yet. So that's almost anti-exercise.

(By the way, pre-natal classes are for big, fat couch potatoes. It was evident when the teacher asked for raised hands on the first day - who has done yoga before. No raised hands. Oh, so NOW you're going to exercise? Okaaay.)

So, back to my plan: I'm on the lookout for a trainer so I can cycle in the living room. I can watch movies or listen to the iPod while riding. I don't feel like investing in the "you're riding the Tour de France" DVDs although they sound like fun too.

Now, to accomplish said plan...
