Just got back from CrossFit class. I am sweaty and stinky and am going to go take a shower. Feb 1 win.. haha. Jk I swear I showered last month more than just Jan 1.
There were rope climbs in the workout today. I subbed them out for ring rows. I can still climb the rope, I just don’t want to. It feels scary to be up so high right now, and my body is heavier than I’m used to.
Sounds silly, but I was pleased with myself for being conservative. Working out during pregnancy is actually new for me because I didn’t exercise during my pregnancy with Logan or Henry. Right now I am averaging 4 or 5 days/ week, but things are changing rapidly.
Each day I evaluate what I CAN do… and then decide if it is what I SHOULD do. I try hard not to attach any expectations or ego onto each session but sometimes that is hard. I love to compete, especially with myself. But this isn’t the season for PR’s or competitions. It’s a season to maintain strength, keep moving, and enjoy exercise with friends.
It’s actually really refreshing after feeling very competitive for a few years. I’d like to preserve this daily assessment for post pregnancy as well. What can I do.. what should I do… what should I push myself to do? A coach can be really helpful with those questions which is why I coach and why I rely on coaches.
Ok…shower time. Check ✔️ Already winning February.
