Good morning! Happy Monday to all of you!
This past weekend was a great weekend and I feel like it was made up of the perfect combination of relaxing and getting chores done.
Friday, we went out to dinner with some friends to a Mexican restaurant. I ordered the chicken fajitas. They were good, but nothing special. More importantly was that we were in good company.
Saturday, we ran errands, worked out, did some house chores, then spent the evening watching movies on the Hallmark channel. I swear my husband loves this channel!
Sunday, was spent working out, going on more never ending errands, getting random things done around the house (like wrapping presents and cleaning out the pantry and fridge) and then relaxing during the evening.
My workouts from last week were spot on. I got in my 5 a week gym workouts (3 cardio and 2 strength). I also got in my 3 prenatal yoga sessions, 5 dog walks and I was even able to listen to the meditative CD that same with my Hypnobirthing book.
Overall I had a great week for physical activity! Even though I need to get things done at a slower pace, I still feel so great during my workout and most importantly after my workouts are over.
On the agenda for this week is getting ready for company to start arriving on Thursday! Keith and I are both so excited that his family is coming to Arizona for Christmas this year. His brother and his wife get here Thursday and his parents arrive on Friday! We have lots of fun things to do before then but nothing to stress about!
Today I have another doctors appointment. I’m sure it will be a quick weigh in, blood pressure and measurement check up. I train shortly after my appointment so I hope they don’t put us in a room and make us wait an hour. I hate when that happens, especially since once we see the doctor she is in our room for less than 5 minutes.
Update: Since I typed this post this morning, I had my doctors appointment and the baby is measuring perfectly for how far along I am! My weight gain is on track and my belly is measuring right where it should be too! Baby Cameryn also had a strong heart beat! I love hearing that sound!
I think we are going to be keeping the work week on the shorter side this week, unless we get slammed. Christmas week at the gyms is typically pretty slow, so it will be nice to just play work by ear. I’m so distracted by Christmas and everything holidays right now! I can’t wait to start baking a small batch of cookies! Even more so to eat one or two!
Also, I learned all our bedding will arrive at our house on Thursday and I am SO excited! It will make her room feel even more complete! Once the bedding arrives, we only need to buy and mount a couple small book shelves (for books and a few stuffed animals) and hang some curtains! I’m still undecided if we should go with light pink or an ivory color. I think the bedding will help us decide what curtains will looks the best!
