Bob Marley and I kicked off the sixth and final week of Transform: 20 today!
It’s not my first “final” week, but it IS the first final week of a program I’ve done completely pregnant, and I’m proud!
Yes, my stamina and my abilities have changed, because growing a life is HARD, and takes a lot out of you, but I’m proud to be able to honor both my body and the life I am growing by MOVING.
While it’s been a humbling journey, it’s also shown me what I’m capable of, and that INCLUDES doing my best and being proud instead of being upset because my capabilities may not be where they once were (for good reason!) It is TOO EASY to feel defeated and to let that take away from the real win here, which is SHOWING UP.
Stop worrying about what you can’t do and start focusing and appreciating what you can! ...
People griping about the snow, and this girl is just over here • l o v i n g • life! ...
She is NOT just a dog.
She is my baby. Soon, she won’t be the ONLY baby, but she will STILL be my baby. The very night I told Dave I was pregnant, I made him promise me we’d never be those people who cast their pup aside. It will be hard, the baby will need a lot of attention... but we will make it work because Roxy also deserves love, affection, and attention.
She will STILL be a priority, her needs will still matter, and we won’t love her ANY less. In fact, I’m pretty sure we will love her even MORE watching her fiercely protect that tiny little human.
Yesterday, two different people I am friendly with had to put their fur babies down, and my heart broke for them, of course. But one of them had tons of love, support and understanding, and it warmed my heart, and I was grateful she had that... the other one had people left and right telling her it’s just a dog, and it made my heart break for her even more so.
Why are we telling people how they should feel? Why are we minimizing their loss?
If you think it’s “just” a dog, maybe you shouldn’t have one... just my .02, and since it’s Friday and I’m feeling generous, you may keep the change 😉 ...
I love acupuncture, and I love my acupuncturist! She’s amazing, in the year and a half I have been seeing her, our relationship has evolved way beyond that of a client/acupuncturist and it’s become more of a friendship where I don’t need to struggle to find the right words, or feel I’m talking too much, or worry I’m being judged... it’s really become this beautiful, meaningful entity.
I love that it’s a safe, nurturing relationship that’s helped me grow, heal, and evolve.
For someone like me, where relationships, vibes and emotions are paramount, it’s absolutely a blessing that we vibe so well and so seamlessly, and I am grateful to her for all of her help!
Wish I would have given it a try sooner! But we live and we learn, am I right?
What was your self love today? Mine was deep breathing during my session, which YEP, led to a little nap 💕 ...
A 17 week bumpie... You can’t see this, but my child is probably looking at the man who has had me doing all sorts of crazy moves the last 5.5 weeks.
And you can’t hear it, but baby is also probably asking “what the heck, man? Can’t a baby grow in peace?!” What, did we expect my child not to be sassy and opinionated?! 😉 ...
We are having our yumminess a day late, because I was too full yesterday!
Baby will enjoy his or her first zeppole, and so won’t mom and dad!
Would I eat this every day? No (but I could, easily!) but I look forward to this splurge every year and I enjoy every bite with absolutely ZERO guilt.
I’ll take some extra insulin and enjoy every morsel - Diabetic or not, life is short; you DO have to live a little, dontcha know?! 😉
Did you enjoy a zeppole this year? ...
