When you first
So, I gave up and promised myself that after our bambino was born I would ease back into running. I also promised myself that I would find a new form of exercise. So, I found prenatal yoga! And it has been such a relaxing, fun and calm experience (although the drive from Seffner to Valrico during the prime of rush hour isn't so great).
Yoga is literally the one hour of the week that I avoid speaking. Its pretty amazing what a little bit of silence will do for your life :)
It has been such an enjoyable experience that I make a list of things I need to do in order to prepare:
- I avoid traveling to Orlando for work on Wednesdays
- I plan what Brad (my husband) is going to cook for dinner when he gets home from work at 4pm so that I can continue working (and eat something) before I need to leave the house for yoga class.
- I give myself plenty of time to arrive at yoga. When I am driving in a rush, I arrive at the studio all flustered.
- I try my best to be in the moment of the class and relax (just like yoga teaches you)

Holy moly! I am sure that prenatal yoga is much easier than regular yoga, but I'm really enjoying it. Last night I attended my 4th class and I plan to go as much as possible until I deliver. Now, if only I could find a studio closer to my house which offers more than 1 class a week. Any recommendations are welcome! :) :)
