Health Group- Year 2, week 30
Good afternoon, and a happy New Year to you!
Yesterday, I made some significant progress in the garage clearing out my exercise space, but there’s more to do.
I’m approaching 240 pregnancy weight, which I’m dreading more than I thought I would. It’s pushing me to action. When I was pregnant with Veronica, I stayed in the same clothes for most of it, because I was losing tummy fat while gaining baby bulge. It worked out beautifully. I’d sure like to do that again.
The problem is cravings. I have a serious sugar addiction going on, and it sucks. I need to kick it in the butt. So far, the addiction is winning. Every time I get all psyched up and motivated, I crumble within hours to sugar. Which wipes out productive energy as well as adding empty calories.
But, overall, I have a lot more consistent energy than I have had in a long time. I’d like to make the most of it before the third trimester really sets in. I’m close. I don’t know when it technically begins, but I’m almost 27 weeks now, so it’s coming.
Lots of things are going to happen in the new year. I need to get ready for baby. I want to start knitting for baby, and I want to get in better shape so I don’t feel like a flabby lump after delivery. I’d like to at least be able to feel some muscles buried in there. Even if they’re fatigued and hiding.
Let’s hear some New Year’s goals for Health Group!
Mine are these…
I’d like to spend about 45 minutes a day, six days a week doing some light exercise. I want to alternate physical therapy and weights with the treadmill.
I want to drink more water. I’ve fallen off that wagon.
I want to eat healthy and not succumb to my stupid sugar cravings.
