I Went To The Gym Today...

...and signed up for a 90 day fitness challenge! I'm pretty excited. It's going to feel so great to be exercising again. Although I may not be able to finish it if I get pregnant in the next few months, that's no reason to hold off. I shouldn't let my health suffer just because I might get pregnant. I admit I was looking at it as a waste of time and thinking it would be better to wait until I am done having babies, but that is just silly. I deserve to feel and look good now. Pregnancy and birth will probably be easier on my body if I'm in shape too. Plus, working out has an immediate effect on my mental health. On days that I work out, I am happier. I think good diet and regular exercise are really underrated treatments for bi-polar. I'll start doing weekly pictures and measurements starting tomorrow! Or Wednesday, since it's the first day of the challenge thingy. =)

True story, I started working out to lose all my extra baby weight that I kept packing on with each child. I finished a 90 day program was so proud of my results went shopping for new clothes. Then found out I was pregnant! But I will say that my last pregnancy was so much easier since I was in better shape and I continued with low impact exercise through out the entire 9 months. I find that I have more energy when I work out. I am excited to watch your progress during the 90 days. I am cheering you on!
