Sometimes when you feel you can’t…just don’t!

So I’m starting to realize this blogging thing is helping me cope in a weird way.

Today, is a not so good day.

I am tired, we had several toddler episodes last night and well I’m kinda angry.

Not at anything in particular, but angry in a I feel crappy right now sort of way.

So I’m letting my feelings be heard though words, because when someone asks me how are you, I pretty much want to scream at the top of my lungs, therefore letting them know exactly how I feel.

I’m working it out. Debating back and forth whether I should go to the gym.

Reasons I should go:

  • · Endorphins make me feel good
  • · I’ve accomplished something by going to the gym
  • · I am keeping my body fit

Reasons why I most likely will not go:

  • · I have a headache that is threatening to take my whole body over
  • · My vision today is not up to par
  • · Boy2 is moving around in there, a lot, which is awesome, but exhausting.
  • · I can go tomorrow (winner)
  • · Today is not a “rockstar” day
  • · I am so so tired.

Looks like I can go on for a stretch but I won’t. I will do something tomorrow if body and baby let me.

Ah pregnancy, gotta love it!

I saw a question that asked, “Are you over being pregnant?”

Of course I am.

But I feel ridiculously guilty for feeling that way. I am sooo over the moon to be pregnant, but the aches and the body changes and the *hormones* day after day. Yes, I AM over it. I feel lousy on some days. I can’t wait to meet boy2 but I WILL wait, and I will stick it out.

Once I have baby, I know somehow I will have “momnesia” and start planning for # 3. But before I do, maybe I will read this post, and remember it all.

Before I go, I will share a video that makes me laugh every.single.time.

Have a fabulous day.

  1. Thanks for the comment! So exciting that you are also due in Dec. with a baby boy!!

  2. Oh, when I was pregnant it was all I could do to make it through the work day. I had no idea how tired pregnancy would make me. I did manage to walk on the treadmill periodically…..but only because it was in our house. LOL I couldn’t imagine going to a gym during that time. 😉
    Hang in there mama!

  3. Oh I love your honesty in this post! Sometimes you have to be honest in order to feel better!

  4. That’s for the comment on my blog.

    I am loving JT for his comic acting, really funny!

    When I don’t feel like working out I do yoga to try to reconnect the body to the mind and it works. Hope the hormones are better today.
