I'll go tomorrow!

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Ever find yourself saying that? Oh I didn't exercise today, I will go tomorrow! I felt like I did that all last week. Or finding yourself depending on workout buddies and they fall thru so you stay home as well. Yesterday I got off work from a short day and I had a lot of energy. Went home (hot as hell here right now) and got my swim suit on and headed straight to the pool. I haven't swam swam in probably 10 months. But I had an urge. So I rotated lap swimming/deep water aerobics/treading water for an hr. Only thing I hate about swimming is how boring it is. I wish I could listen to a podcast or music or something while doing it. One thing technology can't seem to do well is make stuff that works well in the water and is affordable. Or if someone has found something please let me know. This morning I made it to my 5 am dance class! Usually my intention is to go twice a week. I always wake up and think, ehhhhh tomorrow! Then I make it on Thursday, last day of the week for early classes. My intention has been to go after work too. I get off at 3 and my class is at 4:50. So I have almost 2 hours to rest my feet in between. I can't seem to get myself there after work. 5 am it is, Julie!

I had a doppler appointment yesterday and glucose test came back good. I asked my doctor about doing ab crunches if they were ok? My lifting buddy stopped pretty early when she was pregnant and we lifted. My doctor said I can do them as long as it's comfortable. I do them on a machine so I am sitting up rolling forward. Funny thing is when I took that personal training workshop it was a HUGE no no to put a pregnant woman on her back for exercise, like whatsoever. Everything I have read about that is, pregnant women shouldn't sleep on their back. But I mean it's impossible to be pregnant and NEVER be on your back. I still wake up on my back sometimes. Anyway I have heard that if the weight of your uterus does start cutting off circulation to the baby you will feel sick and move on your own. Must be a liability thing for the AFAA not to mess with. One thing about exercise and being pregnant is I don't fight thru pain. If it doesn't feel right, I back off. Women on my baby forum are still running at almost 7 months.

Not much new on the eating front. Doing the best I can, somedays are better than others. I only gained 1 lbs in the past 2 weeks at my doctors appointment. So that's good considering how I have gained overall! lol Have a good week you guys!

    I only sleep on my back so I only slept on my back whilst pregnant. Of course, for me, baby wasn't very big in comparison to everything else I was(am) carrying so no biggy. I did make use of my body pillow though, supporting various body parts for comfort.

    1 lb is not bad at all! And yes, but it can be a hard habit to break. I took a few months off of running, and yesterday I went back to it. My legs and core HURT! That's what I get for saying "I'll do it tomorrow" for the past 2 months. Ugh!

    I'd think water exercise would be great when pregnant!

    You seem pretty active even with the "tomorrows." I definitely wouldn't still be running pregnant at 7 months, though, like those other women. That just doesn't sound right. Good luck with your pregnancy!

    Way to continue to being active while pregnant. I don't have any children and I am amazed! Keep up your routine and let "tomorrow" be today!!

    You must have an excellent doctor as he sees you frequently and has scheduled tests. My obstetrician was horrible and I only saw him twice while pregnant as he always canceled all of his appointments. I had zilch prenatal care.

    I love to swim and do certain exercises, but to be honest, I don't love them all that much when I have to do them alone. They are so much more fun when you have someone to talk to. I feel guilty for saying so as it's about my health not about me having a good time but it makes it hard if it's not fun.
