GO

GO-e1510683504401

This is the phrase I keep telling myself lately. For those of you that don’t know, we are expecting baby girl #2! I am about 21 weeks pregnant right now and can’t believe I am already halfway there. Reality kind of set in today and I was streeeeeeessing…but that’s a whole other story…

Anyway, with Olivia I was going to spin class just about every day, even the day she was born. But we moved and I don’t have a spin class I can go to so I have been a little paranoid that I will gain a ton of weight, not recover as quickly as I did the first time and have a ton of baby weight to gain. I have been trying really hard to make sure I am doing something at least 4 days a week. Some days it’s just easy prenatal yoga or stretching and other days cardio or circuit training. I still am playing volleyball weekly and up until 2 weeks ago was playing basketball weekly. So I am doing the best I can to stay active. But it has been really hard to not have much energy, not feel well and just not be able to do as much as I was before. So when I read this quote it really hit home. It doesn’t matter if I am not going as fast like I used to, not working out as hard as I used to, it just doesn’t matter. All that matters is that I am doing something. I am exercising to try to stay healthy and give this baby every chance to be healthy.

So remember this quote. It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, if you are overweight, thin, pregnant, just starting out with a healthy new lifestyle or have been active for years. Just go. Just keep moving, keep trying, it makes a difference. Be proud of yourself for what you are doing because it’s awesome!

    Congratulations!!! This is so true! We’re all in different chapters of our lives. We don’t always get to control our circumstances, but we get to choose the attitude we have about it. Just keep moving forward.
