I love to think of exercise as time to prepare for labor these days. I’ve read many times that giving birth is like distance running or the hardest race of your life. You trained for those, right? So when I now do squats or bicep curls in Pump or charge up hills on my walks, I imagine myself keeping my body in shape for that momentous occasion and the endurance of the weeks thereafter. Gives it a whole new meaning!
I’m also really enjoying making conversation with my pregnant and mom friends in Pump! I’m trying to absorb all the information I can.
Including the wonderful Pregtastic podcasts! I’m obsessed with them and have them on whenever I’m walking or in the case of today, during my shower! This little speaker was a $20 Amazon find that works quite well to play over the shower sounds:
Lunch today was delicious! Just what I was in the mood for:
Yesterday after our run, Matt had a slice of bread with Nuttzo to tide him over to brunch. I had a bite and it tasted amazing! Karen bought us a jar for Christmas, and I forgot how good it was : ) So I replicated that slice for lunch with the addition of strawberry jam
Hard-boiled egg on the side
And a cara-cara orange!
This lunch didn’t quite fill me up, so I went back upstairs and had a bite of chocolate brownie bread Matt brought home on Saturday and a glass of milk for some more protein (trying to get in as much
chocolate protein as I can these days).
My afternoon destination involves wearing clothes that are easily machine washable. Any guesses where I’m going?!
