Sorry I've been gone for so long. But my one week vacation turned into two weeks. Then, when I got home, I was knee deep in cleaning and organizing the house. So, by the time I got to the library last Friday night, I hadn't been on my blog in about three weeks. So, first thing I did was check two weeks or so worth of e-mail.
Then, with about three minutes left on the computer I looked at my blog.
"Hmmm, what's this? SunshineMeg wants me to check out her 5/26 post...
By the time I get over there I have literally two minutes before the library is going to shut down the computers, and I find out...
SunshineMeg is pregnant!!!!
Congratulations! Our family is so excited for you. Let me see...5/26...you're probably four weeks pregnant...so you add eight months and we're at late January or early February. A little winter baby!!
And I also checked out your recent posts to see how you're doing and your belly looks as flat as ever. Sounds like you were a little sick, but not necessarily from morning sickness. Maybe you won't have morning sickness? Of the six kids that I've had...I had morning sickness with every one of them except this last one. The only thing I did different with this one was to not eat any sugar, white flour, even wheat flour and processed foods.
But speaking of foods...I actually gained five pounds over that last two weeks while on vacation. That was in addition to an earlier five pound gain. So...starting tomorrow/Monday...I will be starting my diet again.
I will admit that I don't feel that motivated... so I will be incorporating my little tricks to get myself going on this diet. I will write down what I eat, but will probably "guess" at the calories for the first week.
I did a leg work-out last week, so I plan on weightlifting three to five days this week. And, because I took a few weeks off because of my vacation, I may not push myself too hard in this first week back.
There also is a half marathon late September that I want to train for too. I haven't run in four or five weeks, so I am literally starting from scratch with the running. But I have started from scratch so many times because of babies, or other reasons, that I know what to do. And, hey, what great weather to start running in!
Hopefully I am able to update my blog more than once every two weeks, Ha!
Talk to you all soon!
