So this time around it's an entirely different half way there. The last time I blogged about something like that it was for weight loss, but now it's pregnancy - I'm 20 weeks and 5 days.
And, man, are the hormones raging.
I've been a mess (so this is a totally selfish post - btw - no inspiration here). My ups and downs are so, well, up and down that I find myself extremely frustrated at times. I've been using exercise as a means to process some of this, but the kind of exercise I was doing beforehand isn't the kind I can do now. So the satisfaction level post workout is not too high. Admittedly I think my poor diet (in comparison to this summer) is playing a part. The fruits are limited during this arctic frost (and bananas are really all that tastes good) and veggies just haven't been satisfying anymore (which is so weird for me now). Granted these are just excuses that I need to really push past, suck it up, and improve what goes into my, and consequently child's, mouth.
Especially because the scale just keeps climbing.
I'm trying not to let it affect me and just enjoy the process, but the winter months certainly don't help. Going out and enjoying the sun all summer really kept things naturally more positive. In fact, if you compare blogs by months, I'll bet the more positive ones exist during the warmer months. Again, something I need to remain mindful of.
I could keep going and get entirely too personal, but I think this was enough for me - for now. I'm going to take a few deep breathes, pee for the third time this morning, and make a veggie loaded breakfast.
Happy February, SP!
