I had a thought today...about Summer.

Sunday, December 04, 2011

This week I hit the 7 month mark of my pregnancy.

My waist measures about 47 inches!! Sure, it's understandable because of what my body is going through, and really the only thing I can do is to improve my diet since I can't do a whole lot of ab-blasting intense cardio or running. But considering my waist measured 42 before I was even pregnant, I know I will have my work cut out for me in losing the excess belly fat after this body of mine goes through a second birth. So much muscle to re-build, so much water to many carbs to WATCH.

And I had a thought.

Today we were finishing up "winterizing" the backyard, which is quite the hangout spot for extended family over the summer!! Even though I TRY to keep a positive attitude about this every year, it leads me to major stress sometimes. I have even said that I hate summer!!!

So to fix that, I decided that my focus this summer is going to be on running. I haven't made time for it for so long, and it's something I need to do for my body. It's something I have to do by myself, and separate from all of the people and things that bother me. It's going to lead to great results.

    I'm not fond of summer either! I live in So. California where it seems like summer lasts for 10 months out of the year. There are already bathing suits on the racks at Target, pool toys for sale and outdoor furniture & BBQ's where the Christmas stuff was just last week. I am trying to enjoy the CA version of Winter and not dread the coming summer months

    I hate winter! I'm always cold, I'm unable to run outdoors and I pretty much hibernate for three months. The minute daffodils start sprouting out of the ground, I rejoice! But, winter is a great time to work on looking our best for summer and that's how I've come to look at it. Whatever needs fixing, tweaking or adjusting, or any pounds that may have crept on over holiday time, those are at the top of winter's to-do list for me. I wish you all the best in the coming year, congratulations on the baby and make 2012 the summer you love!

    Your thinking about summer already??? Not me, still dwelling on the fact that winter is starting. I know how you feel about summer... in some ways its nice but in other its the most hectic time of the year. This years pool season was a bust but hopefully both of us can improve next year's summer... I'd love to be able to jump on one of the horses and just GO when I dont want to be home :-) You run and I'll ride our summers away (somehow mine is less exercise though... oh well its still exercise just not as much as running would be).
