Hello friends! It’s been awhile since I’ve log in to Run Mommy Run, almost a full month to be exact, but I’m back today with third trimester update and a MotivateMe Monday post!
I have to apologize for the poor quality of the photo. With the nights being longer, and days shorter, it’s very difficult to take clear photos in artificial light. It’s the best I could come up with!
But back to the post, growing a baby can take a lot out of you, and to be honest, I haven’t had much to talk about lately either! I’m just popping in to let you know that yes, I’m still here, and no, I haven’t abandoned Run Mommy Run. I’m just taking a step back from blogging and social media.
Everything is going well in the pregnancy so far. I’m feeling rather good lately. After almost 6 months with very little sleep, I’m now sleeping again, and feel more energetic, at least to get through my work day.
As much as I wanted to commit to lane swims as a form of exercise, I find the slotted times at the public pool for lanes swim (8:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.) to be too late in the evening for me (especially since 9:00 is my usual bedtime). So I’ve unfortunately stopped trying to make swimming happen.
Although I’m feeling well, I’m also feeling very large. My belly is already bigger than when I was pregnant with my first son, and I still have 13 weeks to go! Yikes! I’ve already outgrown half of my maternity wardrobe. It’s leggings and yoga pants for the last trimester I’m afraid!
Even though it’s been almost a month since you’ve heard from me, I’ll be back later this week with a review of EC3D Striker Compression socks and sleeves. So please come back soon and check out my thoughts on my new compression gear.
Meanwhile, please visit my MotivateMe Monday partner, Janice at Salads4Lunch for some motivation!
My goal this past month has been simple, to walk at least twice a day, accompanied with my dog. That’s pretty much all I can manage lately, but so far I’m doing a great job at following through with this commitment! Afterall, my dog holds me accountable as he will never allow me to miss a walk.
