Today was an AMAZING today! It was exactly what Sensational Sundays are all about. Taking control, feeling productive, preparing for the week, spending time with the family and resting. It’s a lot to jam pack in a single 24 hours but totally worth it to set the tone for the week. And we needed it, especially this week.
Tomorrow my little man starts kindergarten. I know every mom says this but… I really can’t believe it. Every day I’m beyond grateful for him. He has changed and effected my life in so many positive ways. Don’t get me wrong he has his moments, remember this little gem? OMG I re-read that laughing out loud. Boy have we have our issues but overall he is a joy to be around. Remember Funderwear day? Or when I recorded us reading Dr. Seuss? And just today he asked if he could go running with me. He really is my ultimate Motivation Turned Workout Partner.
Anyway, let me stop before I get teary. I’ll be shedding enough when I put him on the bus for the first time tomorrow morning. SO… this morning started with a run. I had 9 miles scheduled as per my marathon training but I decided on 8 mid run and shortened my loop.
I’m really starting to feel the effects of pregnancy on the running. I’m 7 weeks, still super early but according to BabyCenter.com my uterus has doubled in size and I have 10% more blood volume. I’ve also been extra tired and my morning sickness is increasing daily. Of course all of these things effect running. I’ve been taking more and more walk breaks listening to my body and simply doing what feels natural with no pressure or expectation.
After the run, little guy and I did some more Fun Fusion. This is his new obsession. We took a pic the other day of our creations…
He loves these things and they are so fun!
Anyway… soon it was time to hit the grocery store to stock up for the week. We already got our produce loot from the farm on friday…
Someone asked me on twitter how a family of 3 eats all that. Honestly we already made a dent in it. Between taco night, a huge batch of veggie skillet, my veggie omelets, and packing the vegetables for Little Guys first Kindergarten lunch, half the peppers and 2 of the summer squashes are gone. Plus most of the onions, half the tomatoes, a few of the hot peppers and the cilantro. It’s funny but once you integrate the vegetables into your routine, you use way more then you realize. Plus the beauty of the getting a bunch of veggies weekly sort of forces you to figure out ways to use it. Which I find super fun!
The rest of the day was filled with laundry, clean up and even a nap. Little guys clothes are out for tomorrow. His lunch is packed, backpack’s by the door and I’m ready for my first day of work at home, childless. I have so much to do!
I’m off to watch the rest of Mad Men and then it’s bed for me. Oh! and I’m still keeping my food journal. I think it will be fun throughout the pregnancy to see how my appetite increases…
