Wishful Thinking - Molly

Today in my 730am CrossFit class there was a girl 6 months pregnant.

Not only was she in the class, but she was lifting just as much as I was.


At this point the jealousy of just the pregnancy is subsiding.

This morning, I was overwhelmed with jealousy of the fact that she was doing power cleans, dips and lunges without any modifications.


I always thought that would be me.

I thought I would be hardcore til the very last moment.

Now I wonder what I will even be allowed to do.

If we try again, am I even going to be allowed to walk Penny?


The jealousy just ate me up this morning. 

Wishful thinking....

Hopeful dreaming....

this isn't her (pretty close though)...but you get the idea of why I was bit by the green eyed monster

If I were in your position, I would be jealous too. Hang in there!

You'll be even more mentally tough that the other moms who can work out 80-100% the whole way through though bc you'll get to put in even more effort to come back to full strength... so then you'll be even more hardcore than they are :)... just to put a positive spin on it? Love you Molly.

I think you get to hate that annoying pregnant girl. :) She was just trying to show off. :)

When the time comes, if you have to be on bed rest for 9 months, you will do it, and gracefully. Then you'll blog afterwards about how you got back into shape.

Love you!

I absolutely hate the restrictions I've been on (and continue to be on) just because I did IVF. It's so frustrating so I understand how you feel.

But I know when the time comes, you'll do what's best for you and your baby even if it means being a couch potato for 9 months. (((hugs)))
