7 weeks to go

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

In theory 7 weeks until baby is here which I will be doubly thankful for. My mobility is getting less, my aches are getting more, and my energy has seen better days. I am doing my best to continue working out through the last few weeks and working on focusing on proper nutrition. Mostly I am "dieting" by deciding how a food I want is going to benefit myself and baby. Cravings are fine to have but I try to make certain that I am most frequently choosing things that better the baby's development. I am getting excited for our little boy to arrive in June and then I am excited to say that I am insanely signed up for a October marathon. I couldn't go through this year without doing one and it is going to be a whole new challenge with the new little guy.. good thing I got a jogging stroller!

Update

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

I haven't been on much mostly I have been focusing on being healthy throughout pregnancy. Things are going well I'm dreading having to lose weight again after the baby but staying active has been good for me. I'm 29 weeks 5 days today so I'm getting to the home stretch. On Sunday I ran an 8k (well waddled) and didn't do half bad for this far a long in pregnancy.
Hubby and I at the race he ran the course twice since the start was staggered so he was able to run the last 3.5 miles with me.

A new challenge and adventure

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Mentally I have been struggling as of late. I am trying to stay goal oriented while being pregnant. I really wanted to do a marathon in the spring and a triathlon in the summer, while I knew the timing was probably not going to happen I felt some let down that I wouldn't be able to do one of them. I am happy that we are expecting our first but I am also feeling a bit lost because my goals are getting pushed back and I worry how far will they get pushed back. I am focusing on my healthy eating right, exercising, and just staying healthy. I'm hoping I will at least be able to do the half marathon that is the same day of the marathon I wanted to do even if I have to walk every step of it I hope that will at least appease the beast and prove to myself that I am not letting go of my dreams and perhaps I can run a fall marathon. I'm sure it sounds strange but when every day has been so goal oriented and wanting to reach these certain achievements it's hard not to feel confused.

    emoticon my heart goes out to you kara love.just make new goals when it is so important for you to have them.see it as not giving up on your goals but either extented them or having new ones.make having a fit and healthy pregnancy your goal.make plans for completeing your marathon etc for after the pregancy and doing it with your child in a jogger by you.make it a goal to research all the best jogging prams for not only the best comfort for your child but for ease and moveability.start looking and researching now for mother and baby exercise courses in your area for the time you have the baby.pregnancy fitness classes not only will you be doing exercises that are planned for both you and the baby but might also get to meet some likeminded friends for future after the baby birth after all if they are in an exercise course they also have an interest on being fit and healthy as believe you me it can sometimes get lonely when you have a child if you havenīt got friends who also have children.start looking for marathons and races now that are children orianated to do together after you have your child.start making goals of finding healthy foods for both you and the baby making sure you are getting the right neutriants you need,iron,folic acid etc,etc. you can do this love.see it as another adventure and challange and look at the things you can actually achieve and do rather than at the things you canīt do and regreting it.you have a unique and wonderful chance here that your husband and many women canīt or may never have the oppurtunity to have and that is to see and feel all the aspects of having a child grow inside you.donīt loose sight of that kara love for the regret of missing out or delaying another race.the chances for them will come again.this is a chance that only comes with each child as each child and each pregnancy are differant.now go for a slow easy run or a fsat walk,have a drink of water then sit down and embrace the chance you have been given to produce a life.enjoy it while you can. emoticon

    Exercising while pregnant is good thing but you do have to be careful. You have to listen to your body. I like my goals too and had lots of plans when i was expecting. And sometimes you just have to let it go. Its only for 9 months. I have been running for very long time and was thinking to carry on doing it as long as i could. Ha ha. Only lasted 3 months. Not because i couldn't run - i was just fed up with loo breaks every 10 minutes. Its amazing how much pressure thing little thing can put on your bladder. Anyway i walked everywhere, i took spinning classes ( didn't push myself too much just to be on safe side). What i am trying to say - planning is good but when baby is involved it not happen according to plan. I can only judge from my own experience. When my baby decided to come 5 weeks earlier and i was told by doctors that i was in labor - i told them that it can not be true and i am not ready, i have plans: i was suppose to take my exam week before due date, ticket was booked for my mum to come over and my house wasn't ready... Yes, now looking back i can not stop laughing. All i can say - just relax, believe me - you will need all the strength for the first 3 months when baby is born. emoticon

    A little one to take care of will help relieve some of the regrets about some other things but remember, you can budget your time and make time for you. That is important.
