Today’s prompt for the Lorna Jane Instagram challenge:
This one is kind of a ‘duh’ one for me: it’s of course the baby I’m trying to grow into a healthy human being. In some ways it’s really invigorating to have something more than myself to think about or to be motivated by.
Though I will admit vanity is a powerful motivator, and one I’m never ashamed to admit. 😉

So, I got karmically bitch slapped this weekend. After my gloating and crowing about how awesome second trimester is, it came along and knocked me down a peg or ten.
I spent all of Saturday sleeping, like I’d taken a red-eye halfway around the world and then been pumped full of Benadryl and Ambien.
Seriously, it was one of those can’t keep your eyes open, can’t lift your head off the pillow kinds of days.
I guess that one, not very hard yoga class, plus some serious GSD on Friday really did me in?
My sleepy Saturday aside, it was a glorious weekend around these parts. I did a new hike with some new friends, and discovered an amazing swimming hole that I have to go back to.
Then there was some work (always the working!) and last minute prep for BlogFest. Thanks to spending some time working this weekend, I’m only feeling mildly panicky that the conference is only a few days away.
I’m also hoping that my little hike yesterday doesn’t mean I’m going to spend all day fighting to stay awake today. After all, it’s the first day of #LJInspired, and I’m counting on this challenge to get me back on track so I don’t embarrass myself too badly in front of Gabby Reese and Beto Perez this weekend.
So here’s the blog prompt for today – join me! Chance to win prizes, yo.

I believe that the key to a happy life is having people around who you love and who love you. [noun]. Those people [same noun] inspires me to be the kickass, stubborn [adj] person that I am today. I am lucky to have my mom [person] and the #sweatpink community [person] in my life because they inspire me to live life to my fullest and to chase my dreams.
My dream is to one day cage dive with great white sharks [verb] and even if it takes being buried alive in spiders, [noun], I know I’ll get there because I’m not afraid to dream big!
While I dream big, I hope to inspire others by going for my dreams, no matter what!

I’m officially on day 2 of my second trimester and wowee! I love second trimester energy so far. I still have random bouts of nausea, mostly at night, but overall, I almost feel like myself again. Never again will I take normal life, energy levels, appetite, or activities for granted.
Lots of big news around these parts:
Now that I have all this energy, I have a few missions I’ve set for myself. First and foremost, get back into regular exercising. It couldn’t be more perfect timing that the #LJInspired challenge starts on Monday: I’m thinking of that challenge as the perfect opportunity to get my butt back into gear, and have some built-in accountability and motivation.
I’m planning to take full advantage of BlogFest next week, namely, some of the sponsors that will be there. One of my favorite yogurt brands, Siggi’s, is bringing us some super delicious yogurt snacks (!!) and I am so, so happy that I’ll actually be able to enjoy all that yogurt goodness.
I’m also putting together some final thoughts on survival skills for the first trimester (coming soon). Hopefully it will be helpful to someone. If nothing else, I still have some venting to do, and y’all know how I love to vent.
Happy Friday, everyone!
