One thing I’ve had to deal with since getting pregnant is changing my expectations.
Not necessarily lowering them, per se, but it’s just different. I suppose it’s in a way preparing us for when the baby is here, but I’m not in control of my body like I once was.
This morning, I woke up for CrossFit, and felt queasy and tired. So I went back to sleep. Before pregnancy, I probably would have beat myself up a bit for being lazy later in the day, and worry that I wouldn’t make my X days a week goal. Today, I didn’t do that. It’s a nice change.
I also am being ravaged by allergies this week, particularly nasty post-nasal drip, and can’t take anything beyond my daily Zyrtec for it. (Neti pots scare the shit out of me. No lie.) I feel gross—my throat is sore and sinus gunk is making me extra gaggy. So, I’m going to try to go to CrossFit again tomorrow, but if I still feel bad…rest it is.
But, I am proud that this week I planned a menu for the first time since probably January. And I’m sticking to it!
Again, playing by a different set of rules.
Also, this weekend I bought more maternity clothes for 40% off with the Gap Friends & Family evenet. All this, plus I broke down and bought a pair of maternity jeans when I tried to put on my regular jeans on Saturday and felt like a tragic can of biscuits.
Can’t wait for them to show up!
