Bragging rights?

This is a quick thank you for motivating for me to do something to get my body moving when I'm mostly motivated to wish it weren't Lent so I could eat sugar and more sugar and sit on the couch and watch TV. Today, feeling huge at 37 weeks 6 days, I did 40 min of prenatal yoga and swam a VERY slow 1/2 mile (however I did beat the guy in the lane next to me a few times which I'm sure had nothing to do with the fact that he had already had been swimming for a long time before I got there). I pumped myself up by thinking about how I could come and share here about this "huge" accomplishment, LOL, and then I worked on humility by remembering that both my midwife and Elizabeth Foss swam DURING labor.

Oh, Rachel I am so glad you shared!

That is a major accomplishment. Whatever is the challenge for us atm, is the one to go for.

I am so proud of you for getting out there and I know you must miss sugar during Lent, especially now.

Good job!

(and don't compare yourself to your midwife or Eliz Foss! You will go nuts! lol)
