I guess last night’s Motivation worked on me… because I woke up raring to go for my workout (which rarely happens in the AM).
It probably didn’t hurt that spring has officially SPRUNG in Charlotte. Blossoms everywhere! Walking around my neighborhood is so pleasant.
James and I went on a 1.5-mile walk. I would’ve loved to walk for longer but James was being weird. He kept on planting his butt on the sidewalk and refusing to budge. I thought he must’ve been ill (because he loves to walk!) so I turned around to go home… and he began to sprint! He just didn’t want to go in that particular direction. It was weird… and kind of geeked me out. Maybe he knew something I didn’t?
Came home and did Phase 1 of Get of Bangin’ Body.
… Well, I did what I physically could do, being preggers and all. All of the ab work was out of the question (lots of crunches), but I did the leg work and stretches. I am really excited to implement this workout post-baby though because no equipment is required! Can do it right in your living room.
Time for breakfast! Kale, three eggs, nuts, and a glass of unsweet soy milk.
If that sounds like an unusual breakfast (well, it certainly is for me), that’s because it is – I’m taking the gestational diabetes screening test this morning, and my midwife recommended a high protein/low carbohydrate or sugar breakfast. The test involves drinking 50 grams of glucose and then giving blood an hour later – the purpose is to test how well my body processes sugar to assess my risk for GD. I’m not looking forward to it at all, but obviously it’s important to know if you have GD during pregnancy.
Off to chug my sugary cocktail. Weeeeeee!
