Health/Fitness Goal (and why, if you want to share): Eat healthy and keep doing yoga and prenatal exercises targeted toward preparing my body for labor and birth!
Week's Successes: Although I’m getting more and more out of breath and have needed to shorten my walks, I’ve still gotten my daily walks in during my lunch break at work 4x this week. We also went on a hike for several miles this morning!
Week's Challenges: This week was tough to find the time and energy for workouts after work— between the cleaning/recovering from the holidays and having company stay with us, I didn’t end up doing any of my usual afternoon yoga workouts. But the house is put back together now and I’m ready to get back in the routine this coming week!
GTKY: Any workout goals for 2022? I’m really determined to keep up my physical yoga practice from my 3rd trimester through postpartum so I don’t lose my routine of prioritizing the time to create my own practice. I know I’ll need to adapt to make it look much different (I’ve already adapted to doing a much gentler, more restorative type yoga with strengthening exercises thrown in when I feel like my body can handle it), but it’s something so meaningful to me that I want to make sure I don’t lose it in the drastic shifts of having a baby and moving to a new house this spring. I also want to become more consistent with exercises specifically targeted toward preparing my body for labor and birth. I keep a list on my phone and try to remind myself whenever I can, but I’m going to try to make it a daily routine for me, especially as the big day approaches!
