One week of Jazzercise

Saturday, June 18, 2011

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! emoticon

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. Thank you for your kind words and positive support. You have been such a tremendous help in the past few weeks, you have no idea emoticon emoticon

    I think it makes such a big difference to stay active during pregnancy. I've tapered off of the high impact stuff and stick mainly with just yoga but that is what I want to do and what makes me feel the best. For this OLD woman of 35 emoticon I notice that the aches and pains of being 33 weeks pregnant really make a difference if I don't!

    I used to do Jazzercise -- what a BLAST of a workout that is!! How fun!!

    Congrats on your pregnancy and it sure is great to have you as part of the Fit & Pregnant team!!
