Motivation Monday #31 & My recent workouts

Motivation Monday #31

My recent workouts at 22 weeks pregnant:

Sunday August 5th  – 3 hours of swimming with toddler (1h in the morning, 2h in the afternoon) in my parent’s pool. Heaven in this heat.

Monday August 6th – Family morning walk with Maclean 20 min (before the heat kicked in)

Tuesday August 7th – Morning walk with Maclean (20 min)

Wednesday – nothing

Thursday August 9th – Evening 30 minute walk by myself *

Friday August 10th  – Evening 30 minute walk by myself  *

Saturday – nothing (went to a wedding)

Sunday August 12th – Evening 30 minute walk by myself. *

*Each evening walk I was beyond tempted to run, even just in between power polls. But, I didn’t. I’ve thought about buying a support belt but am having a hard time justifying the purchase when I’ll only use it for another 17 weeks or less.

So, I walk, walk and walk again.

At least it’s better than sitting on my butt at home for 3o minutes 🙂

What motivates you to be active?

What stops you from sitting on your butt all night long?

How do you modify your workouts when you can’t do the workout you REALLY want to do?

  1. I find that my own blog holds me accountable, even though I know my readership isn’t huge. I hardly ever get likes or comments, but thanks to the stats page, I know at least some people read it, and that motivates me to keep going! I also love reading the blogs on my reader. Some of these girls are intense and I think, “the only real difference between me and them is that they’re probably at the gym right now.” And that gets me into my running shoes fast.

    • Blogging totally holds me accountable….that’s one of the main reasons I started blogging. Even though I’m not workout out as much or running, I hope my readers stay. I’m a small little blog too but it’s fun to see your stats page go up, up, up (and then down again, lol). Happy Running.
