Big Fat Chicken

I'm supposed to be driving to New York City right now to attend Carrie Underwoods launch party for her new fitness line CALIA. 

Alas here I am sitting on the couch with my little man. 
There are so many reasons/excuses why I didn't go. 
It was totally out of my comfort zone 
It was a far drive
I would miss time with my family 
I didn't know what to wear
Pretty Little Liars is on

I gave myself so many excuses that I'm not even sure the actual reason I didn't go.
I decided last night and it's pure fate that I'm puking my cows out this morning (that's what Mabel says, no idea ) 

I would have loved to go. I think it's so important to get out of your comfort zone and do things that scare you. 
Apparently I just like saying it more than doing it. 

I have been slacking on working out lately  mostly because I can't stop feeling like I'm going to release the demons through my mouth at any moment. I know it's a valid reasons but I can't help but feel disappointed in myself. 

Maybe that's the biggest reason I didn't go. I don't feel the part. I don't feel like a cute fit pregnant woman. I feel like a whale who counts bathroom trips as workouts. 

My goal today is 30 min Body Pump.
It may not be meeting Carrie Underwood but it's more my speed today. 

Please tell me it's normal to not be running 30 miles a week right now! 


  1. Not sure I'm reading this correctly but did you say you're pregnant but are worried about not running 30 miles/week? Girl, along with doing Piyo, I ran 50 miles in November and that was a LOT (i'm not pregnant). It seemed like I was running every other day or walking during my lunch breaks to hit the 50 mile goal I had.

    Everything happens for a reason, don't feel bad for not going!

  2. I think that taking care of you and feeling good is what it is all about! You can't worry that you're not doing enough because when you can do it, you will do it!

  3. Be kind to yourself- body, mind and spirit! The important thing is to do what is right for you at this time and with this pregnancy. If that's being super active, so be it. But if your body is telling you to slow down it's important to listen.

  4. Uhhhhhhhh...wanna know how many miles I run a week?? Yeah girl...none. Unless there is beer in the fridge. Then, multiply about 15 strides times 457 times a week.
