The question, O me! so sad, recurring, What good amid these, O me, O life?


That you are here, that life exists, and identity;
That the powerful play goes on, and you will contribute a verse.
~Walt Whitman

Do not believe that he who seeks to comfort you lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. His life has much difficulty... Were it otherwise he would never have been able to find those words.

Yoga for twoI'm really starting to get into my prenatal yoga class. It's amazing how refreshing it can be after a long day at work. I think I will continue yoga even after I have the baby.

Speaking of exercise, I wanted to do things differently this time around. With Tanner I barely lifted a finger. Yes I was in a job that had me standing almost 8 hours and walking clients to their stylists chair, but other than that I did exactly zero exercise. After having Tanner I hardly moved off the couch. For the first week it's understandable, I mean I did just push a watermelon out of my body, but after that there was no reason why I should have been sitting around.

This time, however, I want to do the opposite. Although I haven't been incredibly active, I have been making sure to watch my diet, get at least 1 to 2 days of exercise (in the beginning it was 3 days, but at this point, 29 weeks, my lower back can't handle as much), and I have an actual plan for getting up and moving after I heal from giving birth. Today I signed up for a 5k that takes place 2.5 months after having the baby. I figured if I had a goal to work for then it'll give me the motivation I need to get back in the game. It's a walk/run just in case I can't do the whole thing, but I think it'll be a great kick in the ass to make me move and be healthy and fit.

Now let's see if I can actually pull this off....
