Getting some exercise in

So I haven't been very good about exercising since becoming pregnant. I don't have any good reasons, but I just haven't done it as often as I should. Now that I have a big ol' pregnant belly and waddle a bit, it seems odd to be getting back to it, but I have been. I've gone walking three days recently. I started with one mile on the treadmill. I start having contractions if I walk too fast, so it's a fairly slow pace compared to my old pace, but still challenging. The next two times I did 1.5 miles each time. Today I even increased my incline a little to switch things up. I'm careful to back off speed or incline if I feel like it's too much.

After the baby comes, I would love to get back to work with the workouts. I will have to do a Couch to 5K regimen again. I've committed to run 5K on Thanksgiving and gotten my siblings to join in. Not sure where we'll all be for that holiday, but we can all do it wherever we are.

The suite life

Well, sort of. We're in Montana, in the hotel. We have been here about a week. The girls are in school, Brad is working and we are looking for a home. We are eating out most meals. I try to make the best choices I can, but it's not always ideal. At least it's temporary.

I have about 10 weeks left in this pregnancy. I'm excited to meet this little guy. I'm also excited to get back on track with my weight and health. I've gotten my weight down once, I can do it again and I don't have nearly as far to go this time.
