I haven't talked about anything fitness related on here for SO LONG! Truth is my surprise pregnancy really threw me for a loop- I had all day (and night) "morning" sickness which, thankfully never progressed to HG status! I have more or less "rough days and nights" not weeks or months anymore. I've had INCREDIBLY strong food aversions (I would throw up just thinking about a certain food) and UNBEARABLE food cravings (for the first two moths I HAD TO eat a hamburger, I wasn't able to eat anything else without my body rejecting it)! My fitness goals were totally sidelined.
But I've been able to get out running again, not much, still it's SOMETHING! I have a half marathon coming up that I am not prepared for and am going to do anyways. My husband will be joining me and we have a solid plan of care for me during the run because it's supposed to be ridiculously hot that day too. (#whyamidoingthis? #imarunner) All of this to say, I still absolutely feel that part of who I am designed, called, made, and desire (take your pick) to be is an athlete. And there is beauty in the fact that I am a mom and aspiring to be an athlete. There is no conflict in the two. I want my children to be empowered to pursue who they are meant to be and one of the best ways I can help them do that- is by doing it for myself too.
