three months from today is my due date. the end of this pregnancy is in sight and i know these next few months will fly quickly with all the holidays and the craziness that comes along with them. i’m excited and am starting to really dream about so much that is on the horizon. i’m trying to be “in the moment” and relish and enjoy this pregnancy as much as i can…but it is hard not to look ahead and get so excited about this baby!!!
oh, and i am also looking forward to reclaiming my body, to running and challenging myself the way i used to again. i’ve been tempted to sign up for the national half in march, but decided i’m going to wait until after the baby is born and see how i’m doing. i am going to try to get into the cherry blossom 10 miler though and am hoping that will likely be my first post-baby race. i think by early april i should be ready to do that, especially since i will have a treadmill by then. fingers crossed i get lucky with the lottery again!
i’ve been continuing with my running but there is a lot of walking going on these days and that is ok with me. i’m also still teaching pilates twice a week and doing it as much as i can. plus, once a week i’ve been going to a “body pump” class at my gym…SO not my style but it has been great for me. it’s nice to be in a room filled with women working to make themselves stronger and it gives me a little extra boost of motivation that i really need sometimes. the class is lots of squats and lunges and then small muscle group weights like shoulders, biceps and triceps. i hope to keep doing it through the next three months. aaaaand, crazy me signed up for the jingle all the way 10k in dc which is on dec 12th, about 5 weeks to my due date. i’m not even planning to run it – just walk it – but i am sooo excited about it!
hope everyone is having a happy thursday!
