This is me on the treadmill at the gym! For month 5 of my own personal parenting plan, I have been working on going to the gym 3 times per week so that I have more energy to be present for my kids and more energy to hang out and spend time with them. I did go to the gym 3 times this week, yahoo! I am pregnant and in my first trimester, so maybe that’s why I’m feeling so tired, but this week went pretty well. I found myself being more patient with the kids and yesterday we played games together and the day before that we made cookies together, which was really fun. Every day is a bit of a challenge (energy wise) but I’m trying really hard to do what I can to make that better and trying not to make excuses.
Also, for now I am going to take a break from posting about my parenting plan weekly because I would like to have time to post more about my pregnancy. Since this will be my last pregnancy, I want to document what it’s been like for me and since this will be a new experience (having a midwife and not an OB), I am excited to share with you what I am going through. I will probably go to posting about the parenting plan monthly or so and then continue back up with it after the baby is born maybe.
