Today was so fantastic! I started off the day running errands followed by a LONG walk, then some quick pushups and yoga. For my walk I did something different for today. After walking almost 2 miles I walked back to my house and got my wallet and a big bottle of water and walked to the store. I needed to get some hot peppers for tonight's chili and so i figured it was far better to walk there instead of driving. The store is only about 1.5 miles away so it was the perfect distance. On the way back from the store I felt amazing. The breeze was lovely and I was enjoying walking through the paved trails with the massive pines around me. All of the sudden off to my side there where 2 baby deer standing there in the front yard of someones home. Now, this is quite common here as where we live as it is very wooded and they are all over the place. This time they froze and just stared at me ( maybe they were in awe of my big pregnant belly! LOL) and they allowed me to get closer and closer! They were SO beautiful! I said Hi and one started to run away, then after speaking to the next one, he left as well.

I finished my walk with a short stroll with my dog and finished this morning walking 6 miles! A great start to the week for sure! I have also pre-logged my dinner for tonight and therefore I am on track for my calories for today! I am making a Chicken and white bean chili along with Mexican cornbread! YUM! After burning so many calories today, this little pregnant lady is HUNGRY! Which is one reason why I pre-log, to keep me accountable for my portions so I do not just eat whatever for dinner. Even when pregnant, you always have to be in control of what you eat and how much of it you consume!

I have to get cookin as my husband will be home soon! I hope everyone has a lovely night!

    As much as I love deer close encounters ( I just had one myself) my husband pointed out that this is their "aggressive" season, so just watch out.. you don't want any antlers near your belly ( and no, I'm not trying to freak you out- deer just aren't as shy this time of year)
    I love walks like that-- plus, going with a purpose seems to get me there quicker-LOL! Due to time contraints, I haven't been walking my errands much this year, but I do love the feeling when I get to do it.
    Enjoy your yummy dinner tonight!

    Hi Jenn:

    You are one smart cookie to keep up your exercise and to pre-log your food! I love the fact that you saw the deer. I love nature and I'm a tree hugger from way back..maybe I was an Indian princess in a former life..hee hee! Some days I still do have the 'princess syndrome'...rolls her eyes and laughs! emoticon

    The deer are so beautiful - but I prefer them from a far. We have lots of deer in our area, as well as when I see 2 to 5 of them together, in my car it pretty scary.

    WOW that is some walk you took! I love being able to run errands on foot. Actually, I have no car now, so that's my only option, but I still love it! Great idea to pre-log... I don't log, but I am going to pre-portion food for my long run days so I don't overdo it later.

    And how great that you had a deer close encounter! Love the new photo of you and your hubby, too!
