The struggle is real…

As I end my second trimester, I realize the real end is almost near. Am I ready? Well, I don’t really have a choice! My baby is coming in August no matter if I’m ready or not.

Things are getting very real for me: my feet are swelling, the numbers on the scale are getting higher and I haven’t finished the baby’s room yet. And as always, the struggle to stay on track with my workouts is still very much….well, a struggle. However, I have to admit that I wouldn’t be able to do anything if I didn’t have support. My husband has been amazing. Through all my mood swings and aches and pains, he’s been there with compliments (even when I don’t believe them myself), motivation to keep it together and the occasional foot rub.

Just today, we worked out together. We alternated walking on the treadmill and strength training. I mean, we have a workout room in our house! How difficult can it be to workout everyday? Well apparently, very, right now but working out with him, it didn’t seem so daunting. It was such a simple thing to do and something we both need to do as well, but it meant so much. So we’ve decided to do it more often. Like I said, it’s the little things. And when you have love and support, well the struggle becomes less and less of a struggle and more like real life.

Here I am trying not to look out of breath 😉

Be well
