I told myself at the start of this week that I could do five days of Jazzercise in a row and that it would help me feel better about a lot of things.
So I did - I went every day this week (M-F) at 4:45pm - and it was fantastic!
I even did most of Thursday's high impact moves instead of low impact because I was feeling extra energetic.
It makes such a difference for me to exercise regularly rather than not. I start to get weepy, emotional and overall become a sad, sad person when I don't keep myself moving. It's been a powerful realization for me, especially in light of this pregnancy.
I had multiple class participants and even a few of the instructors compliment me on how great I'm looking and how impressed they are that I'm still there, working hard. Having that positive support is a huge help in my mental work of accepting the pregnancy process.
So, I think I'll do a repeat next week, though I will have to vary it slightly as one of my best childhood friends will be in town visiting on Monday. So I'll do Tues-Sat instead :)
Hope you are finding some motivation to keep moving this weekend and making plans for next week that include some fun exercise!
Also, shout-out to all my new blog commentors and SparkFriends - I'm excited to be a part of the Fit and Pregnant team and so thankful for the Spark community reaching out to support me.
