The Truth About My Health 01/31/2012
As of today, I have been carrying a growing fetus around inside of me for 14 weeks and 4 days. Out of all those 102 days, I haven't exercised once.
I've thought about it, lots of times. But have yet to take action.
Last week I went to an awesome women's networking meetup (I highly recommend attending if you live in the DFW area) where I met a Chiropractor who specializes in women's care, specifically prenatal care.
She told me that pregnant women experience nausea because our liver can't keep up with processing all of the hormones our body is dishing out. This was my first ah-ha moment.
Yesterday I was on the phone with my friend Mali of The Soulmate Experience and she mentioned that she read a book when she was pregnant called, Protecting Your Baby to Be that said women experience nausea as a way of protecting the developing baby from toxins.
Mind you, I don't have a good diet. At all. I had this idea in my head that when I was pregnant it was going to be a breeze for me to change my unhealthy ways because I would be carrying for a little one inside of me.
It's just as hard now as it has always been for me.
So when I woke up to Marie Forleo's Tuesday Q&A this morning, only to find out that she was talking about the importance of movement and exercise in our lives I finally shouted out to The Universe, OKAY! I HEAR YOU!
I mean, what I am really avoiding? It is possible that if I take time to move my body more, I will experience less nausea and have more energy - where could I go wrong there?
For those of you who don't know, February is my MOST favorite month of the year. I love all the love that's floating around. I even love all of the commercialized Valentines Day goods on TV and in the stores. It makes me happy.
And since February is the month of Love (and I love, love) I have decided to take it day by day, being a little bit nicer to myself through food and movement.
Tomorrow is the first and I made a walking date with my friend, Shari. Go me.
How do you plan to love yourself in February?
