We ordered one of those maternity belts to help with my cramping when I run but it won’t get here until FRIDAY…shipping these days. I wasn’t going to wait until Friday to run and so I came up with a brilliant idea at 2 a.m. this morning when I was watching Malcolm in the Middle on my phone because I couldn’t sleep.
My Spanx. I rolled down the top to make a tight band like thingee.
Yep, those babies held my belly right in place and the ligaments/muscles didn’t cramp up at all (plus I figured out the less I swing my arms the less chance there is for cramps?). The best part is that there is a little hole in the bottom of my spanx…don’t worry, I didn’t traumatize people by running outside and stuck to my treadmill.
I started with a shirt on but got way too hot (currently 82 degrees in my house) and so I ended up wearing a sports bra, a bandaid over my belly button (to prevent chaffing when I was wearing the shirt) and spanx with a hole in the bum.
Billy is kicking himself that he didn’t come home early from school so he could see this hotness. (The carpet stains were there before we moved into the house…don’t judge)
(I didn’t want to take a picture of myself in the running outfit because it was just way too attractive for your eyes to see)
I know I said I was going to cap my runs off at 6 miles but I couldn’t stop, it just felt too good. 10 miles @ 10 minute mile pace.
Painless running, watching Extreme Makeover and reading blogs at the same time. I was in heaven.
To go along with the awesome outfit I decided to make pancakes and eggs in 3 minutes because I was so hungry and they turned out looking awful but they did taste okay after I added a gallon of syrup to the pancakes and ketchup to the eggs.
I came over to my parent’s house to escape the heat of our house (and to eat their food). I am thinking some reading on the deck will occur followed by taking my nieces and nephew for a donut (not because I want one but because they do…very selfless of myself).
Speaking of my niece, she lost her first tooth!
