Thanks for your nice comments about my 8 pound weight gain. I think I really just need to stop thinking about numbers and focus on how I look and feel, which is great on both accounts! If I knew pregnancy would be this wonderful, I would have got knocked up YEARS ago 😉
Last night, we went for a 1/2 hour walk which was a nice way to spend the evening and then I did some awkward exercises. There is this one that involves a deep squat that you hold for 30 seconds; you are supposed to do it SIX times! I managed to do it only twice and my legs are killing me today. This set of exercises feels like pregnant lady boot camp!
Anyway, for breakfast today, I had some Overnight Oats! You can’t go wrong there.
I should take a picture of what this looks like BEFORE I add toppings!
This concoction includes:
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 1/3 cup 0% Greek yogurt
- 1/3 cup 1% milk
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1/4 cup raspberry mixture
- 1 spoonful of almond butter
It was, as you can imagine, quite tasty.
Last night, I caught a tiny bit of the documentary Food Inc. on PBS (I would have watched more except for those annoying breaks where they solicit donations!). I’ve seen this doc before but it was an important reminder about how our diet affects not only our health, but the environment. I think being a vegetarian helps the situation, but little things like buying free-run eggs and organic produce are also significantly helpful.
Well, it is back to the grind for me. Toodles!
