I’m SURROUNDED BY FOOD! Seriously. I don’t think Thanksgiving is an issue for me anymore it’s being left in a house with all my trigger foods that I hate. I have the most amazing mozzarella and Italian salami calling my name from the fridge. My Mother-in-Law brought an UNBELIEVABLE Wild Berry pie for dessert. I could seriously sit down with a fork and just polish that off if you let me. And don’t get me started on the cookies. I have leftover Italian cookies, chocolate Biscotti and oh! my friends just brought over a dozen donuts as a thank you for babysitting. UGH.
Here’s the thing. I’m stuffed. I’ve been full for 3 days now. I can’t tell if it’s because I ate too much or that I’m pregnant. Either way, WHAT do I want to do?
Eat, Eat, Eat.
Heartburn and all I seriously could just keep eating and eating and I’m NOT hungry in the least bit.
But enough with the whining. I had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It started out shaky with a very moody 5 year old but we survived. He’s feeling a lot better now. It was so nice to just spend time with the family. I had a blast cooking all day Thursday and oh! I did fabulous at the turkey trot!
I didn’t quite reach my goal of 35 minutes but I got out there and DID it. That’s all that matters. It POURED the whole race but thankfully the temperature was nice. Chilly but not too cold.
I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be able to run. Athletically I feel like I could go forever, probably because my pace has slowed down so much. But physically, as in comfortableness, it’s getting tougher and tougher. It seriously feels like I have a bowling ball in my abdomen and I’m painfully aware of my bladder throughout the entire run regardless of how many times I empty it.
I’m going to just keep trucking as best I can. I did do boot camp this morning. It felt great but there is more and more I don’t feel comfortable doing, like the ab workouts and a lot of jumping jacks. I just do what I can and keep moving when it’s something I can’t complete. I’m hoping to at least continue to go until the end of the year.
So that’s it from me this post Thanksgiving. Right now I’m watching and recording the Wizard of Oz so I can re-watch with Little Guy. Tomorrow we are planning on pulling out the Christmas decorations, making some gifts for the grandparents and possibly going to see Tangled. It’s getting great reviews!
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. I’m making tomorrow Sensational… join me? :)
