Here I am in my lovely "
uniform" work-out gear. This photo was taken after I got my hair done. This is only the second time in 2 years that my hair has been curled. Can you believe I don't know how to use a curling iron? Does anyone want to teach me? :)
Today I counted the days until my due date. 62 days, people! I know my due date doesn’t mean much, but it helps to start a count down. I can’t wait to shed this “
fat suit” baby belly (haha) and of course see my
beautiful baby girl!
How do I feel right now?: Huge! I'm seriously thinking, how can I get bigger? I mean I know I will, but still…
I'm trying to keep a good attitude and trying to stay positive. To keep a positive attitude I am looking at the upcoming 9-10 weeks at 3 week intervals. So basically I have 3 sets of 3 weeks ahead of me. So when I get through the next three weeks I can say I have 2/3 left. It's just a mind game -- whatever works, right?
I did get to see baby girl this week at our ultrasound appointment. I didn't get to see her face because her hand was so close to her face. (I guess she was cuddling) Everything looked good though and she is a little over 3 lbs. I even got to see her practice breathing -- that was really sweet!
Spin class: I'm still taking spin class 2-3 times a week. Spinning is harder than it was before and I've had to adjust my bike setup to accomodate my changing body. My intensity has lowered, of course. It is a great work-out because it is good on your joints. I ran a little last week and then did the stair climber, and for the rest of the day I was really sore. So I think I'll stay away from the stair climber. I don't feel bad after I take a spin class, I actually feel pretty good because it helps me feel a little "normal". Of course, I can’t make it through a 45 minute class without using the restroom.
Running: I can still run 1.5 miles maybe once or twice a week.
Walking: I try to walk on the treadmill when I can usually for about a mile, or if we're stuck inside because of a snow storm I've been able to do 2 miles.
