I am so pregnant right now! Ugggghhhhh!!!! I never thought that I’d be the pregnant woman who wanted very little to do with training. But that doesn’t stop me from getting my new dimply ass to the gym almost daily. I complain often about my weight gain, and low energy, and I hear a lot of sympathetic responses like, “Enjoy your pregnancy girl. Don’t worry! Sit back, relax.” Although those comments come with good intentions, I just can’t sit back.
Staying strong is one of the hardest things you can do. It’s easy to give up. It’s easy to cave to your weaker emotions. It’s even easier to accept sympathy from others around you, and use it to justify taking the easier route. As humans, we will always look for justification in our choices. I’ve already heard a boatload of excuses as to why people are “taking time off” fitness during the covid lockdown.
