The 80 Thoughts You Have During Pure Barre, Pregnant

Recently, I came across this post about the 100 thoughts you have during Pure Barre class and basically laughed my seat off/nodded right along. I mean it pretty much describes every class to a T. From rookie to veteran, some version of most of those thoughts runs through your head during the hour-long workout. I mean we all do KIND OF look like we're having sex during back dancing. 

However, lately, I've noticed that my thoughts have changed slightly. I'm WAY more desperate to think, "okay, I can do this." than before. So, while some of the 100 thoughts still apply, I thought I'd update the list a little.

The 80 Thoughts that Run Through Your Head at Pure Barre When You're in Your Third Trimester
(I really need a shorter title.)
I mean, the socks are basically perfect.
  1. Okay, the thermostat is set at 76 today. You can totally survive that without fainting.

  3. Why does every woman in here but me have on Lululemon?
  4. I really wish I hadn't had that milkshake at lunch. 
  5. Pay attention fool, you're kneeing yourself in the belly.
