It’s been a long time since I updated this so I thought I should let y’all know where I’m at with my fitness!
Well – it’s sorta there. I don’t go to the gym. I workout at my Mom-ME fit club twice a week (if I don’t have other engagements) and am still moving around a ton with the baby, house stuff and work.
Honestly, my life is just really busy. Every day I wake up at 6:30am for the Tri(y!) Falcons 4 Fitness program. Then I come home – take care of Christian, then I start my emails and updates. Then I run errands. Then I work at a care home – then I come home to rest for about an hour (around 4pm) then I begin my other work projects…then visit my mom in the hospital…then clean the house…
It really does feel never-ending.
And having a baby really does screw with my time at the gym. I have fears that he will get sick being in the Kids Club there – especially since my mother is prone to catching things and I don’t want him to catch anything. Also, he’s been teething so I’ve been undergoing sleepless nights, crying, fevers, etc.
I DID workout on Thanksgiving though – I did an entire kickboxing class and had fun. I think it’s funner working out when you look like you have a belly from pregnancy versus just looking fat. I honestly think that’s probably one of the biggest reasons why I haven’t been really going to the gym. I just don’t feel good in my clothes anymore…
Right now I can still fit into most of my regular clothes and haven’t transitioned to maternity stuff yet. I have gained around 8-10 pounds but mostly in my belly (or all.) I’m almost 22 weeks preggers and can feel the baby kick and nudge at me. It’s funny because I only remember I am pregnant when I feel little kicks.
I drink a protein shake every morning and try to eat sensibly throughout my day. I do have a sweet tooth though and most often don’t have an appetite. Especially at night. My biggest meal usually occurs around 1pm.
My goal however is to workout tomorrow morning. I also want to start waking up early again at least by 5:15am to get to the gym…I realize more now that, that is my only option if I want to get anything in. It’s just that my mom being in the hospital is so stressful…and sometimes I’m there until 11pm at night – coming home close to midnight. She is undergoing a lot of treatment right now and I feel so sorry for her. She’s been there for almost an entire month.
Anyways – that is my life. I’m working on it! But things have changed since the discovery of my pregnancy. The funny part is, is that I’m already half way done. WOW!
