It's what time!

You know what doesn’t work well for me right now? Getting up at 5:30, I keep trying and keep failing. Either I wake up and just feel like I got ran over by a truck or I am nauseous and I crawl back into bed. I have a real aversion to working out after work. It just leaves too many things to interfere. I NEED to work on in the morning, yet I can’t seem to do it. What to do? I am probably only getting in 3-4 workouts a week right now. Which doesn’t work for me. So, I think what I will try is getting up at 6:30 instead. That leaves me with about 30-45 mins to work out if I can be ready to work out by 6:45. This will no longer allow me to run with anyone in the morning, but I am tired of bailing on my running partner anyway. If I can do this at least 3 mornings and have a good workout on Sat & Sun and maybe a good evening run once during the week I should be fine, right! Right? Ugh.

I feel awful today by the way. I have been much more nauseous this week. Still haven’t thrown up, but feel on the verge. It makes it hard to be at work and want to get on the phone or sit in a meeting. It could be worse though, I keep telling myself it could be a whole lot worse.

I am so sorry ou are getting the fun morning sickness. For myself, I found I felt better in afternoons. So I would go to the gym for 30 minutes at lunch. This didnt always work though. Listen to your body (sucks I know). In a few weeks you will be back to normal and have more energy.

True... and sometimes you'll feel better if you actually do throw up. I threw up twice, right around 9 weeks I think... then started eating saltine crackers while I was still in bed in the AM and that really seemed to help. It'll totally get better though. The first 13 weeks you're body is working really hard to create the placenta. Once that's done, it's all easier! I actually feel great now at 32 weeks. Lots of energy. ;)

no way will i work out in the morning, but if i don't do it immediately after work (school gets out at 2, so i have it good) before i go home, it's all over...the couch will seduce me. i never had nausea, but my tiredness went away and i felt really good in the second tri...so just keep something up for now and know it will get better!
