I know we are just a few weeks into this journey but I am so proud of my body. Each month I get my period, my initial reaction is disappointment but it is always closely followed by gratefulness. I know that sounds extremely odd, especially considering that we are TTC (Trying To Conceive). However, I am grateful to know my body is strong, healthy and working as it should.
I caught myself thinking, “Once I am pregnant, I will start eating better/work out again.” Then I realized how absolutely dumb that was. Why would I wait? Why not start now?! Why not start building the and establishing the best foundation and health that I could? And so I did! I woke up early and headed in to the gym.
I use to work out all the time and even compete competitively when my husband and I were dating. We actually met at a Bodybuilding Competition we were both competing in. We loved spending time in the gym together. Once we got married, life got busy, I got a huge promotion, he left for the Army and we both just got away from it.
I don’t know if I will get stage ready again, but pregnant or not, I want to be and have the healthiest body possible and for me, that started today 💪🏻
