Weekly Workouts: 18 Weeks Pregnant

Weekly Workouts: 18 Weeks Pregnant

Well this was an eventful week. I returned from Austin, lacerated the crap out of my pinky toe and then got hit with a REALLY fun gallbladder attack on Monday. I had so much fun with that first attack  I thought I'd give it another go on Thursday! 
So yeah. I think the universe agrees with my plan to slow the F down. Just a gentle reminder that during pregnancy your body is working in overdrive to grow a tiny human and keep you afloat. Be kind to yourself.

My last travel week!!!!!! NO MORE AIRPLANES EVER AGAIN. 

This week I went to the BIRTHFIT summit in Austin. This was the culmination of my Regional Director training and now I get to spread my little baby RD wings and fly! 

I'll be doing an entire post dedicated to my reflection on this summit, but damn it was absolutely amazing. To share space with such passionate and compassionate humans committed to bettering the motherhood transition for all parents was... I have no words. Shocking I know. 

Stay tuned for that upcoming post.

Here's what my workouts looked like this week:

This week was a good lesson in listening to my body. It's the double edge sword of second trimester energy-- you feel great, but it's easy to go too hard. I pushed too hard during my workout Tuesday and spent the rest of the day feeling like crap, rather than feeling energized and awesome.

That second trimester energy burst is here and I couldn't be more thrilled to greet it with open arms. The ability to stay up past 8:30pm is just dreamy. 

My schedule is still pretty hectic, so while I'm not traveling much, I'm still struggling to find places to ease up. It's tough, ya know? I get stressed about being stressed and then stressed about that. SO FREAKING RIDICULOUS.
