Up until a couple months ago, I thought I'd be lifting weights and doing intense exercise until the day I delivered this baby...
Cause I mean....being in the fitness industry, I see pregnant mamas doing that stuff all the time! .
It took me about 5 months of trying, kind of hurting myself, and failing miserably to realize that I'm not them and its okay to not be at their fitness level, even though I worked so hard BEFORE pregnancy to BE at their level. .
And even now I see all my friends doing workouts like The Shift Shop, and in my mind I feel like I should be able to do it too, but then I have to remind myself "oh yeah, I'm growing a human!" And "I am NOT them, their bodies are completely different!" 😜
It's been really tough on my brain though, and most days I want to give up soooo badly, but then I remember that its not about being able to do what others are doing...Its about pushing yourself a LITTLE harder than your current level....and right now...walks really push me! They are hard. I almost dont make it...but its not painful and it makes me feel good. 🌞 And even though it feels so pointless compared to what I see others doing, it is going to help me get back to where I want to be faster than if I quit and just wait to start again after baby is born. .
Quitting is never the answer...unless your doctor says so! .
Its all about being real with yourself, taking small and simple steps, allowing yourself to make adjustments so you dont injure yourself, not giving up, and not getting caught up in the comparison game. .
That last one will kill you!
Your journey is yours and there is no need to be ashamed of it! ✌💖
