So we’ll call this my Fit Mama Friday post, though I am thinking that it would make a better “Not Me” Monday! (as in I did not sit on my bottom all week doing nothing and eating jelly beans. NO! NOT ME!)
This week was pretty horrible in terms of eating. I ate more sweets than I would care to (considering my goal to grow a smaller baby). I didn’t eat as much salad as I have in the past weeks. A couple times, I didn’t feel like cooking in the least and Mike brought home ready prepared stuff to toss in the oven. EWWW. I’ve been in a bad mood, tired, sore all over and short of breath and while the easy foods were supposed to help I’m convinced, if anything, they’ve made things worst.
Exercise has been all that much better, either. I’ve walked to the library/church a couple times but that’s about it. I did do some light stretching a couple times earlier in the week but really, it should barely count. I did not find a suitable yoga DVD but will search this weekend when we are in the city.
My goals for next week are to get back on the healthy eating wagon. We will be in the city this weekend and eating out a lot but I hope to pick nutritious options as much as possible. We’ll likely walk around/visit places a far amount while we are away so that will be good exercise. I’ll walk to the library at least once next week even though the children’s activities are cancelled. I’ll still try to find some sort of yoga program for pregnant women. I am sure that a google search would turn up exactly what I need (and I am familiar with yoga so don’t really need a guide to show me in person) but I guess I am not that motivated yet (though, it would certainly help my energy and like my aches and pains as well).
If I have another week like this next week (hey, I am being honest) please feel free to give me a swift kick to the bottom to get me moving (or at least eating something worthwhile!)
I hope the other Mama’s at Got Chai? have had a better week!
