Blogging weekly has been hard to fit in these days..I think it mostly boils down to the fact that I don't want to be on the computer ALL THE TIME.. I fit it in when I can.. and that works for me and my family. To catch up here are a few things going on.
1. Brunch and Baby Gender
I had brunch on Sunday with the AMAZING runner buddies.. It turned out to be a Christmas, Valentines, B-day, catch up celebration... I always feel better when I have spent time with these girls.. and look at the awesome Valentines gift Auntie Zoe gave us..
2. I am feeling FIT!!!
When pregnant with both our boys I did not work out. This time I am determined to keep a consistent and realistic activity schedule. So far walking, hiking and/or running every day has been working for me. I feel great and have been able to put in more miles than my initial goal of 10-15 per week. The bump is growing but I have only gained 5-7 pounds (depending on time of day weighed) in the 18 weeks, this means that I have only gained what is needed for the health of our baby and that is GREAT!!
|Can you see the bump in my work clothes??|
|This is a total optical illusion, the black and angle hide the bump.. but I sorta love it because I feel like I look fit and healthy.|
|Our walk on Valentine's Day.. I wont be able to zip my favorite hoodie much longer..|
3. Family Time
With the birth of Baby #3 on the horizon I am truly cherishing time with our boys.. Trouble is I have been pretty low energy at night which makes it sorta hard to leave the couch.. Thankfully Muscle Man has been picking up the slack.. Our $29 Fire pit from Home Depot has been put to good use, I joined them and toasted a few marshmallows the other night..
|The boys are full of adventure... I love it!!|
That is all I have for now.. The active streak continues, started on January 27th, although today with the rain and wind our lunch walk was stopped... and I have a massage after work.. guess it will be a treadmill walk for me..
Hope you are all well... Thanks for stopping in!!
