I have been feeling really good and motivated lately.
Yesterday I took a walk. For exercise purposes.
Working out, training, exercising…all have been the furthest thought on my mind.
Not to say that it doesn’t bother me, I miss being active. But, a shitstorm has been crushing me. Yes, I have been making excuses.
I used to always say that you make excuses to find the easy way out, and that is true. I just totally lost my way.
In that, i admit, I wanted the easy way out, because I just didn’t have the strength and motivation to tackle everything. I had to prioritize.
But, I am starting to gain strength again.
Took that same walk today. Instead of walking the whole way, I jogged the last half of the distance back to the house.
Everything is one day at a time.
I am pregnant, so I must be careful. I have been having serious sciatica nerve pain and problems, so I don’t want to aggravate that. I also don’t want to let it win, and have me mostly on my ass or in bed for the next 6 months.
I have gained 13 lbs. More than probably I should have at this point. Yes, the doritos are great. The french fries and sour gummi worms are awesome. Will I still have some. Of course, I am human after all. But, I am going to be more careful with my choices.
Also, because I had gestational diabetes during my last pregnancy. So, I am a greater risk this time.
But, like I said, one day at a time.
I feel good today though. I know the crap around me isn’t going to completely disappear.
