No, I haven’t given up (though, I might as well have!). My computer died so I was out of blogging action for a while and missed two check ins.
There’s not a lot to report on the fitness front here. The only exercise I’ve been getting is house cleaning (our furnace exploded…so there was plenty of soot to wipe off walls), vacuuming (5 cats remember) and painting. I guess you could say I am getting ready for baby. I would, however, have preferred to have spent more time walking (we are having beautiful spring like weather) but I could be bothered to dress the kids to take them out and by the time Mike gets home it is the kid’s bedtime and then we’ve been sitting down in front of the Olympics for the rest of the evening (you think that might inspire me). I hear birds outside my window at the moment and Mike might get home at a decent hour today so perhaps I’ll leave him with the kids this evening for a bit.
If things can get worst than my lack of exercise then diet has. I’ve been hit with third trimester sickness and the ONLY thing that appeals to me at all is store bought breaded chicken fillets (at least they are white meat). Not only have I been eating those (the kids and I have gone through a 1.5kg box this week) but I’ve been smothering them in a spicy salsa sour cream (I throw my salsa spices into sour cream). Yep, caloric….yep, not much nutrition. I’ve tried salad, I really have, but even the thought of greens has made me rather, well, green. I had a lovely meal prepared for me by my husband last night of asparagus, mushrooms and steak and it was divine and didn’t threaten to cause problems so maybe the cure is to have HIM cook for ME! The only good thing I can say about anything this week is that I am consistently drinking water both in the day and at night.
My goal for this week is a lot of fresh produce (I’m thinking fruit might be nice). There’s a 20% off sale at our grocery store on all fresh produce so I plan to stock up. Continue drinking the water. Find a healthier substitute for the breaded chicken….EWWW (what else can I smoother in sour cream? I don’t think I can give up the spicy sour cream) and to take advantage of the spring like weather.

Hoping for (no, I WILL have) a better week next week!
