My body is done


Today I’m stuck here. I got some sleep, but when I woke up my whole body was aching and I was feeling disoriented, so I decided to stay home and unwind. I think I’ve been going with my normal speed this entire pregnancy, and now my body is saying no. It makes sense, I’m 7.5 months pregnant and I am working as much, seeing people for dinners 3-4 times a week, we have two kids, we are moving and renovating, and I am trying to workout everyday some how, at least 5 times a week. So I think my body and mind just needs some space. Maybe only do dinner 1-2 a week? Maybe just do 2 big workouts and 3 smaller ones? I don’t know. I am trying not to see it as a defeat. But it’s hard when you are such an energetic person, with a lot of stuff happening all the time. I am one of those people that always has back to backs, not just work wise but also privately. And I think when you are carrying around an extra 7-8kg and an extra life, you can’t rush any more. It’s weird… it sort of just hits you. I’m a mom. A mom?! And it’s not just me anymore.

So today I had to be wise, and stay put. If you have any recommendations on shows or birthing videos (something other than margaux’s video) please send it my way.
