SUPER EXCITING NEWS...I'm almost 11 weeks pregnant!!! What an exciting time...exciting but also a bit nervous as I'm treading into the unknown as this is my first child.
While I'm super excited and feeling very blessed...at the same time I'm really struggling! While dealing with ALL the symptoms of pregnancy while trying to continue an exercise routine and attempting healthy eating despite MANY food aversions to healthy foods I LOVED previously. I'm also a bit dismayed over some of the changes taking place in my body...expanding belly and now non-existent waist! Duh...I knew all this ahead of time...but trying to change my way of thinking after having 'body issues' for the past 30 + years or so...not such an easy feat!
Sigh...I'm really trying to change my thought patterns about all this. I really want to enjoy this 'short time' of pregnancy as I know it will be over before I realize it. I don't want to project any of this onto my unborn child...because don't get me wrong, this child was planned and is already loved greatly by so many people...me most of all!
So this is my challenge in life right now...I am an OVERCOMER so I will succeed at this...maybe this is the pivotal challenge in my life that will shape my success at healthy living for the rest of life
Anyone else out there that had/has these same struggles??? What did you do??? How did you change the way you think???
Keep sparking everyone!
