I think that my stress levels are starting to really get to me. Today, I swore in front of my parents. First, I never ever ever swear. Honest to goodness! It is just not me. Next, if I were to swear, it would not be in front of my parents over whether or not a brand new baby dresser would fit in my car.
Looking back at my last few posts, I realized that I have been very negative lately. I am certainly not a Suzie Sunshine, but I do not fall into the Debbie Downer category either. However, all I seem to do on my blog lately is complain about being pregnant although I have been SO incredibly lucky with this pregnancy. After two years of trying to conceive and two miscarriages, I was certain that I was doomed to have a rough pregnancy. However, there has been no morning sickness, no complications and so far, knock on wood, a really healthy baby.
My due date is less than one month away, and I can now start to focus on the light at the end of the tunnel. Instead of freaking out that running is really hard right now, I can focus on the fact that it should get a lot easier next month when I am not 9 months pregnant. Instead of freaking out about the marathon, I can maybe take it easy on myself, and just try to run to finish like Liz suggested. Instead of lamenting the loss of my fitness, I can start focusing on how my body has done something rather amazing over these past nine months.
New year, new attitude- I need to get rid of this negativity and start creating my own positive energy.
