Half way people, but I am sad to say that right now since it is almost the end of July
Lately I have been learning to take it easier on myself, I go all out and am busy and then feel like junk from being over tired. So now I am trying to make sure that most nights 9pm I am in bed. So far it seems to be working and I have been able to keep my eyes open in the afternoons.
Yesterday I had my 6 month (can you believe it?!) check-up. All is good, tummy is measuring right on track, and Baby K’s heartbeat was perfect. Next week I have my gestational diabetes test, then one more check on in August before my appointments go to every two weeks versus monthly. I was worried about the test since I thought I had to fast before and fasting these days is NOT a option for me. But nope! I just should not eat anything too heavy or sugary that morning and give the food a couple hours before my test, made me really happy to hear that. The doctor told me she had one patient recently that ate a full sized cinnamon bun on her way to the test, failed and wondered why…. No comment.
Moving on… it is that day where I share my workouts. I am happy to see my run this week has already happened AND went really good. Only a couple more weeks till Mud Hero then after that I might be swapping out running for walking, we will see.
Sunday – Planned gym trip turned into a 4km run and 1km walk since gym did not open…
Monday – Rest
Tuesday – Gym trip – 30 minutes elliptical and triceps/ back
Wednesday – 75 minute prenatal yoga class
Thursday – Gym trip – 30 minutes elliptical and chest/biceps/shoulders
Friday – Gym trip – Treadmill run 9 & 2’s and legs day
Tonight we are off to concert after yoga… Rush. Not my choice 😉 Chad wanted to go so we bought tickets and it might be our last concert for a bit. It had been in Calgary and was cancelled with the floods and moved here so now they are donating all proceeds to the flood relief. Made me feel a tad better about spending the extra money on tickets.
Nothing else is exciting in our lives. A week and a half of work left till holiday time though!
What was the last concert you went to?
Might have been Elton John last April, it has been a while for sure!
