Baby gettn’ low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low! LOL
Well yall I am inching closer and closer to my due date!
As of my 36 week period, I changed my weekly routine from twice a week to once a week. I now combine my workouts that I would do in the 2 days, into 1 day. In doing so, I make it modified; Walking hip mobility, upper body workout, Mtn. Climbers, Squats, lunges. Then, instead of 15 laps, I now do 5 laps. Instead of 3 minute treading in water, I can maintain a 2 minute tread, especially now since my belly has “dropped”, it feels like baby boy is pulling me down in the water when I tread. LOL!!!
I still feel GREAT in the water, and glad I can still maintain some form of fitness routine. I have definitely slowed down, which is to be expected when rounding up the end of pregnancy. A lot more tired by the end of the day, I just want to lye down and I am quite alright with that!
One thing that has kept me inspired through this swimming journey during my pregnancy, is a lady who happens to swim around the same time I am in the pool. When I was pregnant with my baby girl and swimming, the lady was there swimming too. The inspiration is her age. She is 88 years young and is an avid swimmer. Today I just felt compelled to ask if she would share her story as to why she does what she does. What she shared with me made me tear up. With her permission, I will be sharing her story soon more formally. I would have NEVER guessed in a million years the direction she would go in telling me why she swam and how swimming became her connection. STAY TUNED!!
Anywho, I’m staying strong with God’s help, one day at a time!!
