Pregnancy. What a new experience. I don't think I quite understood all the things that would happen to my body physically and emotionally, but hello naps! I have never napped so much in my life, but hey, I am not complaining. It's actually kinda nice. :)
Something that I've started doing again lately, is exercising. During my first trimester of this pregnancy, I was way too tired and exhausted all the time, but now that I am in my second, I can do it again.
It has really only been those 3 months since I graduated and became pregnant, that I haven't been active though. Up until that point I was pretty much always active through dance. Even up until just a couple of months ago, I was still a member of Living Legends and got more than enough exercise that way, but now that I am done with that, I have to find other ways to get it in. As my first trimester was ending, I found that I had this burst of energy all of a sudden. It was the strangest thing (but gladly welcomed). I found myself able to go without a nap during the day and found myself feeling a lot better. The feeling was like night and day, so that was when I started exercising again, and I have to say, it feels great! If anything, I do it for the mental aspect of it. I always feel so much better after and I have a better attitude too!
I currently have a 24 hour fitness pass and that's where I've been going to get back in to the routine, but since it's not too cold yet, I've decided to give up my pass and just go walking and jogging outside instead. The Provo River Trail is just too beautiful to ignore right now, so until it starts snowing, that's where I'll be. The seasons here are so beautiful. I've gone walking outside this entire week and I've just been in awe of the beauty. I love the fall leaves, the fall colors, and I love that it's just me and nature.
The not-so-good thing about me, is that I usually exercise in phases. I'll be consistent for a good couple of months straight, then I'll get lazy and stop exercising for a couple of months, and then I'll start up again for the next couple of months and so on and so forth. However, this time it's going to be different. Now that I am a graduated married woman, I've made it a lifetime goal to make this a consistent part of my lifestyle. Not only for me, but for my future family as well. I know how important it is and from now on I am going to stick with it!
Wish me luck. I'm excited!
