9:30 AM: 40-Minute Walk (2.2-Mile) – COMPLETED
Just two more days till I get cleared to run. The last time I ran was the day I was induced. I was exactly 40-weeks pregnant. I’m looking forward to getting back out there. It’ll definitely feel strange at first. For one, I’ve been running with the bun since October. Although I’ll miss my favorite running partner, I won’t miss the pee breaks and the extra added weight I had to run with. I will miss the excuse that I used, “I am running slow because, well, I’m (insert months) pregnant!” I won’t miss the other excuse, “I’m not fat, I’m pregnant!”
On a happy note, I’m 4-lbs away from pre-pregnant weight and 9-11 lbs. over my training/racing weight. I can’t complain. Other than feeling a little tired from waking up a lot with Lili crying, I feel pretty good.
I decided to read the new book I bought before I went into the hospital.
I got through two chapters, however, I had to stop at mile 1 because Lili was fussy. I rocked her a bit in her rocker/sleeper and then hopped back on.
So far it’s pretty good. I might skip over to read the Pregnant/Post-Pregnancy chapter.
Anyhow, we have a busy week coming up. We’re having lunch with my in-laws at 2, then tomorrow I have to stop by my part-time job office so they can see Lili followed by my sis and fam coming over. Wednesday is my OB appointment, Thursday we have a free day, but Pedro’s SIL may stop by and Friday is a special day. It’s Lili’s one-month birthday. So we’re going to have a picnic in the park. Busy, right?
Okay, Lili-bear is ready to eat. She is always so hungry.
