don't worry, i'm still alive & kickin'

Every time I logged on to Blogger to catch up on my blog readings, I contemplated posting....but normally something prohibited me from actually doing so.

Alas though, here I am. Posting again.

I hate that I've not had any fitness or nurtition posts. I don't want to change the direction of my blog ~ but I'm going to have to tweak it just a bit. So while you won't see any more "half marathon training" weekly recaps...you will see how I'm trying to "stay fit" being knocked up & all.

"Stay fit" is a very loose term these days, FYI.

My fitness regimen has been on a HUGE hiatus....luckily, FitSugar posted this article about the benefits of taking a break from exercising. Ha, sure they intended it as a day break...not a 4 week hiatus.
Potato / puh-tah-toe.

Thought I'd share what they had to say with you, incase you too are feeling like you're in a slump, don't have the time, etc.
Plus misery LOVES company.

#1:

While I've not had an "intense workout" since the day before I found out I was prego...I still like this point.


#2:
Oh I have perfected the art of vegging on the couch....incase you were wondering, nausea still blows.
And I'm able to tune out just fine watching Theresa, Jacqueline, Caroline, the Manzo boys, & Melissa tear it up on Real Housewives of New Jersey.


#3:
This one really hits home. I've had 0 energy to prepare any meals yesterday - for all you that have been pregnant or are pregnant, and still managed a household normally KUDOS TO YOU! I've not been keeping up on the wifely duties...especially after a long day at the office. MattyB has been SUCH a trooper though. I had a weird craving for Cracker Barrel's biscuits & gravy the other night, so we ordered take out. (NEVER do I crave any sort of that....so this is all new to me.) Speaking of cravings, what the heck is up with cream cheese??? I could literally slather that on anything.

I promise to eat right in the 2nd trimester....
We'll see.....


#4:
Okay so I can't do this....well, I suppose I could, but it's not advised...so I'll just live vicariously through you all & you just tell me about all your vino times.



and last, #5:
Ha, my last "mental health day"...I took off work to go to the OB for 3 hours What the Hades is up with these long appointments???  I also forgot to bring a snack during this appointment, so famished does not even begin to describe how I felt afterward. I also had to drop by Wally World (aka WalMart) to pick up some crafting supplies, so I did what any other girl would do. I found myself a bag snack size Snickers as soon as I got there, and then walked around the store eating them.
Don't judge. You would have done it too.


So there you have it. You'll eventually see some workout posts, but for now you'll have to deal with me & my reasonings for not :)

Oh, and you'll definitely be seeing some fashion posts...as soon as I don't feel fat in EVERYTHING.
Good ghord.

Thanks for not giving up on me!

Hey girlie! My best friend is 6 months prego and in her 1st trimester, she was nauseas, tired and didn't do much working out, but once she got through to the 2nd trimester, she got her energy back and she was back at the gym. Just give it time, you will get back there!
