So it has been a summer of feeling not quite like myself- ( that seems to happen when you are pregnant the whole time).
I am giving myself some new goals. First of course is to deliver a healthy baby girl hopefully sooner than later. I am 38 weeks after all! Second is to completely clear out my cupboards and fridge. Not that there is really that much “junk food” but somehow I seem to get addicted to even the most innocent of foods i.e. triscuits, graham crackers, etc. I miss feeling lean and healthy. I did escape the better part of my pregnancy without really feeling big which has been a blessing. I probably have now gained about 22 pounds which isn’t bad but needs to disappear ASAP!!!! I also can’t wait to get back to my exercise schedule. I still workout. Weights 3 times a week and some sort of cardio at least 4 times a week. However my cardio has been leaving little to be desired. Running has been banned from my routine. So of course what is the one think I want to so badly do…. RUN! I plan on doing my first race post pregnancy on Thanksgiving Morning. It will be the Garden City Turkey Trot 5 miler. I am hoping to be back up to that by then. I know I am not leaving much time to train as I won’t be cleared to run for approximately 6 weeks after birth but I am going to give it a shot. I also want to do the Half Marathon this coming spring. It will be my longest race to date. I have only run 5Ks, 10Ks, and 5 Mile races. So this should be a good challenge. I figure by blogging about this I won’t allow myself to change my mind. Sometimes I need a little extra motivation! 🙂
Just thought I would give you an update as to why my blog has been lacking!! I am looking forward to updating with a lot of new healthy recipes!
