Yo yo yo party people!
SPRING BREAK 2017 IS HERE!
Or, as my nerdy fellow language arts teachers and I joked together, it’s time for Water Break 2017. Any hour, any day, any week now I anticipate my little boy making his way into the world. And I can hardly wait.
To keep my sanity in check, stress minimized, and third trimester aches and discomforts calm, I’m still workin’ it in the gym 5-6 days a week. Lots of walking, lots of no impact cardio moves (this boy’s head is waaaay too low to be hopping and bouncing about), and lots of lighter weights.
Is it kinda hilarious to watch me in action? I’d say so.
Do people smile and giggle as I walk by? They sure do.
And I could care less. In fact, I join them in the snickering.
Do I plan on still working out all the way up to my water breaking? I’d say so, unless I start feeling drastically different in these next few days, which is possible but unlikely.
And whatever your weekend and Spring Break may entail, remember to keep moving daily. A walk, a little yoga, a workout class at your YMCA…remember you can’t give your spouse, your family, and your friends around you your very best unless you take care of yourself.
