Well I’m nearly half way – I can barely believe I am pregnant let alone half way through! Here is my bubba, looking very peaceful just lying there. However, he/she has been pretty active in my tummy.
So, apparently all is good! All it’s bits and pieces are there and working ok as far as anyone can tell. I had my OB appointment yesterday. My blood pressure was 90/60 and last time was 100/55 – pretty nuts. My weight according to them, with clothes and shoes on is 60kg. I’ve never in my life seen 60kg on the scale before I did my skin folds the other day out of interest, and I came up with 18.2%. So, I figure being 41 and half way pregnant, that’s pretty reasonable.
Today I have to book into the hospital – now that makes it all rather real. I still wake up in the mornings and feel my tummy and think ‘wow, I’m having a baby’.
On Monday I’m off to the Gold Coast for a week. I see they haven’t bothered turning on the weather for me again. Never mind. I still can’t wait to catch up with Kristin, and everyone else. Today I have to do the rest of my washing.
I haven’t been to the gym all week! I have though, done some cardio everyday but one. This morning (in the cold and dark) Nadia and I did an hour of walking/jogging and stairs. I’m still managing to jog a bit which is good.
I’ll leave you with some self reflection and healthy diet and exercise affirmations.
I am firmly committed to staying active and healthy.
I remain active and fit because I am dedicated to me.
Being dedicated and committed to my health assures me that I will remain healthy and active throughout my life.
I appreciate and enjoy the conviction to eat healthy foods and exercise my body and mind. I also make sure I relax and de-stress. These are all measures I take to ensure I stay active, healthy and happy.
I have a set schedule that includes an exercise regimen and proper foods to give me plenty of energy. I feel stronger when I exercise and I feel better when I have a balance of nutrients in my body. I enjoy feeling good and I deserve to be healthy.
Sometimes it is difficult for me to go to the gym when I really would rather stay home, but I let go of these feelings because I am committed to myself. It is through this commitment that I ensure a better me.
Today I choose to remain committed to myself and to my regimen of exercise and nutrition. I let go of the urge to skip my schedule. I let go of my urge to eat unhealthy foods. When I dedicate myself to my commitments, I know that I will enjoy a healthy and active body for a long time.
- Have I allowed negative thinking to get in my way of my commitment?
- Have I dedicated myself to daily exercise?
