Results from my rest day...

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

Today was just wonderful! VERY relaxing and just what I needed. I am debating how many miles I will walk tomorrow. I can tell a difference from today where I did very little and the days I push it hard. Maybe my body is telling me to slow it down a bit. I am thinking about walking 3 miles tomorrow and that is all, then see how I feel and I can always walk more Friday.

I did really well today with my food and water intake, though after drinking so much water I feel as if I am going to BURST! I can tell a difference in the last week in my belly. I feel very full. It is like a stretching on the sides of my stomach, it feels so heavy. Guess it is normal but it hurts. Maybe it is from all the fiber I have been eating or all the water or the fact that I am 6.5 months pregnant or a combination of all three! Regardless I feel SO huge tonight, my husband of course loves it and to be honest I do to, it just feels so heavy all the sudden! emoticon

On a side note not related to fitness. My husband just started to paint the bathroom next to my gym here in our house. Well, we picked out a lovely color called Lilac Gray, it is so pretty. Well he put the color on the wall and it is SO light we can barely see it! We wanted a light grayish/ lilac color but this is VERY light. I think we may have to go up a shade. So bless his heart, guess we have to go get another gallon. The joys of painting! Guess we should of got the sample color and tested it on the wall FIRST. Oh well......

I am updating stuff on our baby registry which is always so much FUN! I also need to start working on the invitations. We are looking at a few but have not made up our mind whether we want to do a custom one or get one through the sites online. I have a good 3 - 4 weeks before the invites need to go out so I have time.

Goals for today 12/30 -

1. Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies - DONE!
2. Consume at least 35 grams of fiber - DONE! 50 grams consumed
3. Consume at least 90 grams of protein - DONE! 101 grams consumed
4. Drink at least 128 oz of water (1 gallon) - DONE! 162 oz consumed
5. Log all foods and stay with in calories - 1,527 calories consumed

    I am so proud of you, seriously, I love how you are putting the baby's needs first and really listening to your body, I am thrilled you are having such a wonderful, healthy pregnancy! PS this is the time the baby is bulking up more than developing, which is why she is starting to feel so heavy, TOTALLY normal!

    I'm glad you had a great rest day! Reading your story about the painting reminds me of all the times we have had paint mess-ups! I know what you mean about feeling huge. I remember with Emily my first it was like all the sudden I woke up one morning and felt like I had swallowed a watermelon. But she is growing and you are taking such good care of yourself! She will be a healthy baby for sure and you will recover quickly I just know it.

    Hope you have an excellent New Years!
