Okay friends, it’s time to talk exercise.
I haven’t been doing it.
Here’s the thing: I am tired ALL. THE. TIME. I have been going to bed between 9:30 and 10:00 every night and sleeping until 6:30 or 7:00 every morning, and still I am tired! After I get home from work, it’s all I can do to keep my eyes open, much less workout. It’s really pitiful (just ask my husband!). I have read/heard that the fatigue lessens some when the second trimester hits, and I sure hope so! Still, I have a few more weeks before that happens (I’m 9 weeks along right now), so I need to figure out something. Maybe I need to tell myself I’ll do just 10 minutes of cardio a day. That’s not much, but it’s less than zero. Every night I tell myself, “Tomorrow I’ll work out,” and then tomorrow comes and I’m tired, and it doesn’t happen. Basically, I’m using my fatigue as an excuse not to exercise, and it’s not doing my body (or the baby) any good.
Apparently I need a good kick in the pants, so readers, lay it on me! How do I beat this fatigue?
