Little did I know I was in store for such an awesome week!
Monday we went to our monthly doctor appointment. From what he could feel, Baby L has moved into position. No wonder I’ve felt feet in my rib cage! All my stats are great; except the weight gain. I received another scolding and was told to return to strict paleo. Everyone I share that with is pretty shocked considering I still scare people when I turn around (definitely don’t look preggers from the back). I’ll try to curb as much as I can, but I’m also not going to stress about it. Probably means I need to hit the box more often.
Tuesday, I worked late and had a ton of errands to run before we left for San Diego on Wednesday. All day I received abnormal texts from the hubs (i.e. “I vacuumed the house.” “I swept the patio.” “I cleaned the bathrooms.”). I couldn’t figure out what got into him! The texts continued into the evening, asking my ETA and wanting to join me on my errands (say what?!). I complied and called him on my way home, having knocked out half the errands. When I pulled in the driveway and opened the garage door, my MOMMA comes walking out!
I was STUNNED (and subsequently confused!). No wonder Chad was doing chores on a Tuesday and begging me to come home – he had an awesome surprise for me! These two were conspiring for weeks and many of my Aunties, who I had recently spoken to, were also in on the surprise. Those stinkers!
Wednesday, after work, we headed to San Diego for a long weekend with family, friends and some beach time. It was just what we all needed. The weather was perfect all weekend long.
Frankie got an awesome afternoon at the beach and the dog park. He hunted lizards and played with his cousin Cami. Plus he got in some good sunshine sleeping.
Saturday, my Aunts hosted a beautiful baby shower for me. Chad and my Uncle hit the golf course, avoiding the ladies lunch. We were again showered with amazing gifts and fellowship with dear friends and family. The day was filled with fun games, delicious food and sunshine. Baby L is so lucky to have so many people already loving it! We feel so blessed.
Week 32 WODS: As a result of our travels and surprises, workouts suffered.
Monday – Flow Yoga I – With the baby in position, so many more of the poses felt impossible and it wasn’t as enjoyable. Total bummer.
Food: As I mentioned, the doc wants me strict paleo again. I listened to a degree. I wasn’t going to turn down all the yummy food cooked for us in San Diego and at the shower. I just tried to make the best possible decisions and balance it all with a lot of fruit, veggies and protein.
