33w4d Motivation

I have never really liked exercising for the sake of exercising. Previous to all the complications of this pregnancy (namely the varicose veins) I could motivate myself to go to the gym daily because for one thing it would give me a break from G and also because I could read a book and listen to my Ipod and forget that I was actually working. Since the treadmill is no longer an option, I just can't seem to get motivated to go and swim. The last few times I've ended up in the warm water pool just hanging out. While it feels great to have a little relief from the aches and pains, the only exercise I get is in actually packing my bag and changing my clothes. I can practically feel my muscles melting away.

This morning we had to leave the house at 6am to get John to the airport for work. It was raining cats and dogs all the way there and back. Definitely a good day for a nap. Makes it even harder to get motivated to go to the gym.

Maybe we'll go out for McD's for lunch. That would count as some exercise, wouldn't it?

Oh yeah, the only exercise I've done this entire pregnancy has been chasing after my toddler and anything involved in day-to-day activities (walking the mall when shopping, carrying my heavy toddler to the car, etc.).

I'm thinking of getting a gym membership after baby #2 is here. The local YMCA offers childcare at a reasonable rate while you work out. It might be worth the cost just to guarantee myself an hour of time just for me.
