Extra Pounds

Did anyone watch 'Biggest Loser Couples' this season? Well on one of the last episodes, the remaining contestants had to put weights all over their bodies to equal the weight they had lost and go running in it. They were immediately in pain from all the extra weight. This is how I feel. My friends and I do yoga once a week, and last week I told them I feel like I strapped on a fat suit while doing chaturanga dandasana . Much heavier trying to hold myself up with my arms with the extra weight. My friend Molly is a runner (among other things). She ran through all 3 of her pregnancies. She described running while pregnant like strapping on a 30 + lb fat suit, and running while breathing through a straw...and I added 'while a small human was using your bladder as a trampoline.' Good thing we can all laugh about this. I'm going to keep on exercising, and I guess I would've felt this way with the other 2 pregnancies had I exercised with them!

I'm very impressed - my excercise at that point in my pregnancy was a one block walk with the dog!
