It is amazing to see not only how I have changed in the past year but how my body has changed. In the first picture I was going to the gym 5 days a week, focusing more on my appearance and the minor details. Now, second picture, I am growing a human that takes all of my energy just from the work my body is naturally doing inside of me. I lost all muscle definition. I finally made it to the gym for the first time This Year yesterday and it was completely different! Even a little scary since it hasn’t been my comfort zone for the last couple months. I managed a full body workout with 600 reps in 30 min before my asthma really kicked in and baby was telling me I was done. I use to want to be strong, now I just want to be healthy -which isn’t completely stopping me from scarfing down this deep dish pizza. I do want to stay in shape during my pregnancy and after it, but I’m not going to be squatting 225lbs anytime soon.
It’s ok for you to change, for your goals to change, and your circumstances to change. It’s life! If we were always the same we would all be a hamster in a wheel spinning around and around.
I absolutely love my belly getting bigger and I am counting down the days until I get another ultrasound to see baby Romero.
