You know that feeling after you workout ? That “buzz”, “high”, feeling so great nothing can get in your way?
Well, I haven’t managed to get that over the last few weeks and realized that I need that in my life.
At almost 20 weeks pregnant and I am struggling to find the “buzz” but haven’t given up trying.
Thursday morning, I woke up at 5:30 am wide awake and couldn’t get back to sleep. My husband was up getting ready for work. I decided to get out of bed and go for a walk. It was a cool 18 degrees outside. I laced up my runners and went for a 20 minute pregnant power walk.
It was THE perfect time to be outside, as I went on my walk, I saw no one (it was 5:50am). The sky was a clear blue with a little orange and red in the horizon, a slight breeze as a walked the streets in my subdivision. I returned to the house with a little “buzz” that I was desperately searching for.
Later that day, I had a meeting at 11am across the street from our office, so at 10:50, I left the office and walked in the complete opposite direction and around the block to get to my meeting. Another 10 minute walk in (30 minutes in total Thursday).
That “buzz” lasted until 2pm – then I started to crash at work. Literally, I had to shut my eyes for a few minutes. The rest of the day/evening was a right off. Finished work, picked up Lilly and managed something for dinner.
Then we had our first successful “pee in the potty”. Apparently, that’s all I needed to “wake up”. Lots of high-five’s and cheering for Lilly’s first pee in the potty (little things can make us happy).
Fast forward to today, Saturday and everyone is down of a nap: Lilly, my husband as he works the night shift tonight and our dog is out cold on the floor.
Off I went to get in a workout and hopefully find that “buzz” I am missing.
I’m feeling pretty good right now, got my cardio up, a little stretching, push-ups, side planks and a few other things thanks to my Fit Mom DVD. I actually bought this when I was pregnant with Lilly over two years ago and used it a lot.
The Fit Mom Prenatal Fitness was just what I needed. You should check out her website here for more information.
Tomorrow, I am going to blog about the pregnancy resources that I am currently using and how I came across them.
Off to hydrate and get a little protein in (greek yogurt coming my way).
Did you workout today? (And get that “buzz”)
If you are pregnant (or were), what workout’s are you missing or loving ?
Do share … I’d love to hear from you!
