Hello lovers and friends! I hope it is warm where you are because Chicago sucks. I read a report where the meteorologist said that Chicago’s winter has been “impressive.” Do you know what that means? That means it’s been F@&king cold AND snowy 😦
I, for one, am OVER IT. I miss the summertime. I miss being able to wear sleeveless dresses as I did when I went to NYC to see my bestie in what seems like 800 million years ago.
A little while ago I, I promised myself that I would refrain from complaining about the weather because let’s face it, nobody cares. But I admit, it’s getting HARD. So there, there is my rant.
Thank goodness I am going to South Florida in early February.
In other news, I have officially started my 3rd trimester! I can’t believe it. In some ways, the time has flown but in other ways, it seems like it’s taking F-O-R-E-V-E-R. I am so done with being pregnant and it is only going to get worse as my due date creeps closer and closer. However, the good news is that my placenta has moved all the way up which means….I CAN WORKOUT AGAIN!!!! This makes me so happy. My first day back at the gym was on Saturday and it was slow-going. Today was slightly better with this workout:
Working out is so much harder now that I am 1) a little over 6 months pregnant and 2) out. of. shape. I would typically try to repeat this circuit about 3-4 times and I’ve got to be honest here, I barely made it through 2 rounds. So not only was the circuit difficult for me to get through but even my warmup on the the stair master/elliptical was miserable! Hopefully, if you try this workout, you can make it through better than I did.
Here are a couple of progress pictures in case you have nothing better to do on this fine Monday evening…
I thought it was pretty crazy how much BIGGER I got over the course of 2 measly weeks. The next 13 weeks is going to be brutal, waah!
I took a gander at some of the earlier pictures of when I was at first pregnant and laughed at myself and here’s why:
Did I really think that I was “showing”? Why did I even take this photo? Even my boobs are tiny in comparison to how they are now.
Ah well, only 3 more months, pray for me, would you?
Stay warm, my friends! And if you live in a warm climate, I envy you.
