Attitude Adjustment

I know I haven't posted in a while, and a big part of that is that I don't feel like I am doing a ton right now. I am not running or racing and I don't really want to write about my mundane trips to the gym. I was also trying to avoid discussing baby stuff, because there is more to me than that.

So I was going to write a really whiny post about how sucky it is to be pregnant and that I feel like I am being super lazy, but no one wants to read that. I wouldn't want to read that. I don't even want to write that.

The more I thought about it, while I may not be training for any races right now, I am doing something that is pretty cool. Making a tiny human. I also have it pretty easy. Sure I may not get to eat sushi (and I am talking about real sushi, not the cooked role stuff) or drink beer or not wake up at night, but I haven't had any complications. I feel very lucky and blessed about that. I also know there are many women out there who would give anything to be in my position.

I have about 15 weeks left and instead of focusing on what I can't do or the things that hurt, my goal it to enjoy every minute of it. I love this baby and can't wait to meet him or her, so there is no reason to be negative.

This also means that there will likely be more pregnancy and baby related posts over the next few months. I hope you all don't mind. I will be back running and racing soon enough.
