It’s a debate I have with myself. Has being pregnant made me any healthier? Probably yes, because I’ve cut way back on drinking and smoking, but I also have this suspicion that my habits haven’t really changed. They’re just hibernating.
Pregnancy makes Healthy Body interesting, right? It’s really like I am at a pause in my life. I eat pretty decently and I work out but I know that I can’t push myself and I also can’t sleep.
Here are some things that I think about when I think about being healthy.
It’s all doable. At the end of the year, I’d like to feel strong and healthy. I want to get right back into a routine after Ian is born because routines make me happy. I don’t want to be one of those people who doesn’t take care of herself because she’s too busy taking care of others. Maybe it’s unrealistic, but I’m a person too. Plus, my new life is a great time to build new habits.
