Wow! This week has flown by! I’m taking it easy and listening to my body. It’s very hard for me to chill and relax. I’m early in my first trimester and being “advanced maternal age” I want to be careful. I had high hopes of doing high intensity workouts during this pregnancy but so far, I’m too tired to do anything!!! LOL! Please keep me in your prayers:)))
1) Thursday- Yoga Day!
2) Sugar Fact of the Day! I am convinced that sugar is from the devil!!! LOL!
I challenge you to go ten days without sugar. Starting NOW!!! :)))) Let us know how it goes! Don’t worry, you’ll live! Trust me:)))
3) Mantra for the Day- What’s your Transformation Story?
I’ve had my moments of being chubby and thin. I am really excited because for the first time, I feel like all my cylinders are working together. I am eating well and exercising at my peak performance. In the past, I couldn’t get it together. Either I worked out a ton and ate like crap or I ate really well and didn’t work out. Also, my mental game was not on straight. My motives were not pure and because I wasn’t obese, I didn’t really feel the urgency to get fit. I knew my body well enough that if I needed to lose a few pounds I could. Well, the yo-yo dieting took a toll on my body and now I struggle with thyroid issues, gluten sensitivity and sugar addiction. I really have to be super careful and eat healthy because I HAVE to, not just because I WANT to. I think the biggest thing I’ve learned so far on this journey, is to be yourself. So much of my struggle came from looking at other women and comparing myself. My standards we’re not realistic. So I learned to be patient and OK with myself. I had to surrender the idea that as a forty two mother of three I wasn’t going to look like a woman in her twenties. I don’t mind it because I’m actually in way better shape now than I’ve ever been! So, be patient. Surrender your expectations and enjoy the journey. It’s not going to be perfect everyday. Be OK with it!
Now, I get to work on having a fit pregnancy. Wish me luck:))))
