I am emberassed to admit that this is the first time I've done any "real" exercise this entire pregnancy. I was doing so good about running and getting into shape, but as soon as I peed on that stick I felt justified in doing absolutely nothing. Now that the morning sickness is looooong gone, I still prefer sitting on the couch eating an entire can of salt & vinegar pringles (sorry Jay, I know I bought those for your lunch) over any type of physical activity. I won't even admit that 2 days after my failed attempt at potty training (urrrggh, the others were so easy!) the entire bag of starbursts that I bought for bribes was completely empty (considering that it was a failed attempt, you are safe in assuming it wasn't Maddox eating them all). Oops, I guess I did just admit that, maybe now I can be more accountable. Anyways...when I was pregnant with Maddox I went to the gym religiously and was a regular on the front row of the spin class right up until the week I gave birth. This time I am feeling so lazy and really need to get moving and enjoy the beautiful weather outside. I decided a family hike was the perfect way to do that, so we filled up the kids' Camelbacks, packed some snacks and called up our favorite hiking buddies. Every year Jayden complains less and less about how tired he is and how much he hates hiking, this time he was even the leader of the pack, it was so nice.
It was such a great way to spend our Saturday and from that day forth I vowed to start exercising more. That was a week and a half ago and so far I have ridden my bike one time to the park that's a half mile away and I was winded by the time I got there. Oh it's going to be so fun shedding these pregnancy pounds.
