Hi friends! How are you?
Things for me have been chugging right along. My weeks have been pretty uneventful except for a couple of fun things that have been going on…Last weekend we went to go see Wicked (it was AMAZING) and this weekend my mom came to Chicago. The highlight of the trip was a painting class we took yesterday:
There may or may not have been people giggling as we were taking this photo. I told him that the black stuff on the butt of the duck looks like poop to which he replied “NO! those are his balls” ::sigh::
Anyway, in terms of my pregnancy, I have been making quite a bit of progress in the belly department…
I still feel pretty awful which means I’m still eating pretty awful so I’m sure that accounts for a portion of the
fatness protrusion in my midsection. It doesn’t help that I typically take these photos later in the afternoon when the bloat is at an all time high but you get the point!
Here is a brief look at some of the things I’ve been eating. As you will see, my meals are not very healthy but for the most part, they aren’t completely terrible either.
I have still been keeping up with my workouts (although they have been scaled back A LOT) and I thought I would share today’s workout since it was a goodie! If you try this out feel free to kick this up or down a notch — however you see fit 🙂
I started with 20 minutes on the elliptical followed by 2 rounds of this:
For the Russian twists, squat jacks and KB swings, I used a 25 pound kettleball. Also, the rope arm exercises got me really tired, I forgot how hard those things are!!!
And just because, here are a couple of wiener dog photos:
First, I saw this lamp at World Market today and I almost bought it (maybe later!?!?!)
Do you have Monday off?
I don’t 😦
