I guess last nightâ€™s Motivation worked on meâ€¦ because I woke up raring to go for my workout (which rarely happens in the AM).
It probably didnâ€™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 wouldâ€™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 mustâ€™ve been ill (because he loves to walk!) so I turned around to go homeâ€¦ and he began to sprint! He just didnâ€™t want to go in that particular direction. It was weirdâ€¦ and kind of geeked me out. Maybe he knew something I didnâ€™t?
Came home and did Phase 1 of Get of Banginâ€™ Body.
â€¦ 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), thatâ€™s because it is â€“ Iâ€™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 â€“ the purpose is to test how well my body processes sugar to assess my risk for GD. Iâ€™m not looking forward to it at all, but obviously itâ€™s important to know if you have GD during pregnancy.
Off to chug my sugary cocktail. Weeeeeee!
