Two things that I am going to miss a lot about being pregnant:
1. Baby girl kicking me all day and feeling her squirm around. I especially love when I am laying next to Billy and she knows that and does an extra hard kick so that he can feel it too and he says, “I FELT THAT!” She is already teasing Billy;)
2. Getting out of doing core work. I am sure I could at least attempt it and modify it but I am using my pregnancy excuse as much as I can because I despise core work. Now I have a reason for being that creepy girl in pump staring at everyone else killing themselves off while she takes mirror photos of herself.
Help me come up with some excuses for after August of why I shouldn’t do core work.
After pump I did a few minutes on the elliptical and then made my way home, I had a date to get to. I made a quick turkey sandwich on the way out the door but didn’t have enough time to take a picture of it….I was in a rush because I like to take a shower and actually try to get ready when I meet people for the first time. This way they agree to hang out with me again in the future. Once I have sucked them into my friendship then I start showing up in gym clothes with hair that hasn’t been washed in 4 days.
I got to meet the incredible Jenny for froyo. Jenny was in a serious car accident 5 years ago and has spent these last years in intense rehab to be able to walk again and now run again….this year she will be doing her first 5k since the accident. Such a huge inspiration to me.
Boxes. (Disclaimer: Mom, Sister and anyone else (probably just my dad and the employees of Yogurtland) that is going to miss us when we move stop reading now). We are making the first step in our moving process. We decided to start now so that Billy isn’t forced to do it all in August by himself while I am on the couch complaining about my back hurting and making him go to McDonalds for lemonade refills.
PS we talked about McDonald’s lemonade yesterday but for any lemonade newbies I just wanted to warn you that you must go inside to get your lemonade. I learned the hard way with the Incident of 2008 when they gave me a cup with 99% ice and just a few sips of lemonade when I went through the drive-thru.
We are actually trying to not move very much stuff and instead give away or sell most of our things which so far I have been doing a great job of.
I am having a ridiculous time giving up any of my running shoes even if they are really worn down and have holes in them. These were my first racing flats ever and they have more than enough miles on them (I kept very good care of them and kept them clean:) but I can’t let go of them.
It scares me how attached I am to shoes yet I can get rid of everything else I own without thinking twice. Maybe I will make a quilt out of the shoelaces and parts of all my different running shoes to sleep with each night.
How do you really feel about core work? Get it out there in the open.
Have you ever had racing flats? Will you ever get any? How many running shoes do you have in your closet right now? Do you remember what your first running shoes were?
Do you get attached to things easily? Do you hold on to certain things for a while?
Would you go for a fruity froyo or a chocolatey froyo right now?
