I woke up very, very excited to swim. One painful side effect of pregnancy is that I often wake up with a lower back ache (from sleeping on my side and the bump pulling my muscles forward â€“ thatâ€™s my theory, anyway). The idea of floating, entirely weightless, in water seemed so tempting. I was quickly up and at them and at the pool.
But the door was locked.
BLAST! I totally forgot the pool doesnâ€™t open until 12 on Sundays. I stood at the entrance in my bathing suit and flip flops for a good 5 minutes, hoping the doors would magically unlock â€“ kind of like how you keep opening an empty freezer in hopes that ice cream suddenly appears on the inside â€“ but no luck.
So disappointing. But I wonâ€™t let this stop me! The Husband and I are about to set off on a 3.0 mile Walk the Dog Workout. I will get my sweat on, one way or the other.
Sunday morning eats have included â€“ my absolute favorite smoothie, ever.
Favorite smoothie ingredients:
1 frozen banana
1 cup soy milk
2 â€“ 3 tablespoons sunflower butter
2 scoops protein powder
And an egg, cheese, and arugula sammie.
Off to walk!
Anyone else planning a Sunday workout? Whatcha doing?
