Extreme fatigue...sore joints...funky balance...weight gain...just some of the fun side effects of pregnancy...side effects that could justify me staying home instead of braving the cold to get to the gym. They could be my excuse to put fitness on hold for a while and trade it in for some extra sleep...but my goal to have a fit pregnancy is my reason I push myself to stay active NOT my excuse! We all have things in life that could very easily be an excuse why we can't get active and be healthy...we all have things that could justify why we can't. My challenge for you is to not use those as excuses but rather your reason why to push through!! You can tackle this week no matter what it throws at you!!!
