I am now 22 weeks pregnant and feeling it :). It is hard to have come down in my weight and be back up, but the wiggly little feet make me feel like it is all worth it. I am doing what one should never do at any other time in life and boxing up the clothes that don't fit, but oddly, seeing them in the bottom of the closet is encouraging. It reminds me of what I was able to accomplish and that I will be back there again in my size 10 pants. I did it before and there is no reason I can't do it again after baby comes and has settled in for six-ten months I can get back to the serious work of getting back the body that i want to live with for the rest of my life. In the meantime, this is the body my baby needs, so it is the one I will have.
I am back to tracking as of today. I have the energy to exercise, I have the tummy power to eat rationally again, so here I am. I have also found out that two sweet families that I was midwife for with their last babies are due again just a few weeks before me. So, I need to be physically strong, as flexible as I can, and have enough stamina right up to the end of this pregnancy so I can be with them again for the birth of their little ones. Yay! Even more motivation!
All right, time to grab a carrot, and get to the physical activity of the day: cleaning my upstairs!
