I know I've heard people mention at random times what their wellness and fitness goals are, and I thought it might be nice to have a place to share what we're doing, what are goals are for the activity, and how we feel about it.
So, for example:
Activity: I (FINALLY!!!) did my prenatal yoga DVD today (Blooma if anyone is curious) and convinced my husband to join me.
Goal: A time of mindfulness as well as improving our endurance and muscle tone.
Feelings: I had mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, there were moments of power and "mind-over-matter" strength to fight against feelings of weakness and "I can't go on." I think this is REALLY important for me to work on for labor pain management and for having more laboring positions available to me. There were also many moments of guilt, weakness, and beating myself up for not keeping up my yoga practice from when I was really active 2yrs ago and much stronger.
Doing Prenatal Yoga with a man is HILARIOUS.... every time the teacher said something like "OK, Moms" or "Feel your inner goddess!" we both cracked up. When she asked us to "listen to your baby's wisdom" I asked him what the churros we had a lunch were saying to him. We had fun! It was funny, and important to note that pelvic opening is just as beneficial for men's sexuality as for women's.
Anyone else want to share? I think having a place to talk about it would be motivational to me in the future :)
