SUNDAY 1 hour group power working, 12 minute jog/walk followed by 40 minute strength workout
MONDAY REST, man my body needed it
TUESDAY 1 hour Cardio Boot Camp class, very sweaty!
WEDNESDAY 20 minute walk with Cooper, and 1 hour practice session for the Group Power class (super light weights)
SYMPTOMS: I am knocking on some wood when I say this, but NONE!!
FOOD ADVERSIONS: Green beans.. I could not stomach them yesterday!
FOOD CRAVINGS: No cravings, but this week I found myself looking for more carbohydrates (probably due to all my workouts) I ate whole wheat veggie pasta, white & Sweet potatoes, whole wheat bread, and whole grain crackers to get in some healthy carbs.
SLEEP: I’ve been passing out! Sleeping on my left side on a regular basis which is great.
MATERNITY CLOTHES: I am happy to say I got a package from Old Navy yesterday. I bought 2 maternity dressses, 1 maxi and 1 that is knee length. They are both form fitting to show off my growing bump. I also bought 2 workout tops that actually fit and 1 workout jacket!! I am beyond excited to have some new clothes!
STRETCH MARKS: None! Trying to remember to use cocoa butter daily but I definitely don’t.
This shot is a little blurry but its hard to take pictures by yourself!
belly is getting bigger, I think it is double this size at night!
DO I MISS ANYTHING: I miss some of my old clothes. Luckily summer is almost over because my bathing suits are getting too small. I also miss doing ab work but planks will have to do for the time being!
MOVEMENT: Lots of flips and punches. Mainly at night, but I am definitely feeling movement throughout the day.
BABY ITEMS PURCHASED: My parents bought us a crib! I can’t wait to set it up.
WEDDING RINGS ON or OFF: ON
I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO: A 3-day weekend and getting the baby’s room all cleaned out. I am also looking forward to practicing my Group Power workout so that I can tape soon
