It seems strange, but, besides coffee, the aspect of my life I miss the most while being pregnant is the workouts. The reason it seems strange is that, up until I got hooked on P90X, I could spin even the flimsiest excuse into weeks of skipped or half assed workouts. The saying “you don’t know what you’ve got ’till its gone” seems to apply, except, in this case, it is “you don’t know what you’ve got until you can’t do it for 9 months”.
This realization has made me wonder what exactly I miss about those puke when done cardio workouts or “can’t lift my arms” strength days. I guess it might be the daily challenge of a new workout that will strain a new set of muscles, or as strange as it sounds, being soar. Those really aren’t good reasons, but I can’t really put my finger on what it is exactly. Maybe it is simply the endorphins that I can’t seem to do without these days. Whatever the case, I can’t wait for this baby to make her appearance for a lot of reasons, but one of them is that I can finally get back to working out.
Anybody have any better reasons to miss working out?
Until next time….Ryann.
