What inspires you to stay active?

Today’s prompt for the Lorna Jane Instagram challenge:

What inspires you to stay active and live healthy?

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. 😉

Getting inspired… plus great white sharks

Happy Monday!

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.

Wow, this sheets + comforter combo is really ugly. Please don’t judge me.

 

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.
