Slow and Steady Wins The Race

That's what I was telling myself on the elliptical today. I was moving like a turtle on that thing today. I guess I should focus on the positive: I WAS at the gym. I WAS working out. That's gotta count for something right?

Daylights savings time really jacks me up. Yesterday I was about to cry at 5pm because I was so tired. I knew if I took a nap, I wouldn't sleep well at all. I haven't slept well since the time change. So instead of laying on the couch, I got on my gazelle for over an hour. I felt GREAT afterwards. G-R-E-A-T. I was well energized. So today after work I did the same thing. Well, minus about 40+ minutes;-). Now it's after 9:30 and I am still awake! Exercise does a body good. Especially this pregnant body of mine. I'm not sure if it's the time change or this baby, but one of the two is kicking my butt. Luckily I found a way to combat the tiredness and stay in shape!

That's all I have. My husband posted it on myspace so I figured I'd tell you all too. I've never been superstitious about telling before the 2nd trimester so there's no reason to be now. I wanted to do things a little different this time--not tell anyone, not find out the gender, not have an epidural, not gain a ton....Hopefully the latter 3 will work! Jess is my muse for two of those!

Well hello there sunshine!!!!

I am so friggin excited for you! Did I mention that???

During my first tri, for about 4 weeks I was literally narcoleptic. Like would fall asleep at 7:30. It was insane! I barely made it to the gym but then BAM your energy comes back and you feel like a million bucks.

Sherry - you are gonna rock all of your goals - I just know it!

Kisses and love and a BIG ole congrats!
