Tonight I attended a kickboxing class. Tomorrow I’m scheduled for a dance class. It’s hilarious to watch me and my pregnant belly kicking, punching and working out to loud music! I’m going to miss my cute belly though – because in about a week, this baby will be out of my tummy and into this world. I will also miss exercise because I literally don’t work out for six weeks after giving birth. Funny how active I am considering I was SO inactive at the beginning of my pregnancy.
How do I feel?
– a little swollen…not really.
– Tired (mostly because of my boys)
– Sick (because my youngest is sick with the fever)
My goal this week is to stay active but not do anything that causes me to get sore. I just want to workout so I can get this energy out of me and possibly induce labor. My schedule this week is a little busy still. I had a party yesterday – another party for my employees tomorrow – another party on Friday and Saturday. So we will see…I really would like to go on a nice long walk with my parent’s dog also before I give birth.
My husband made his family’s infamous ‘sticky buns’ so I’ve been splurging on that and other sweets these past few days. I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow so I will see how much my diet has effected my weight. So far I’ve gained around 35-pounds. This is a normal weight gain for me.
What keeps me motivated to continue training?
This revelation goes back to why good habits truly make you – that what you constantly do makes you. I don’t do things because I want to, I usually do them because I’m used to doing them!
So start making exercise a habit and it will become second nature to you…even if you are 39 weeks pregnant!!!
