Diet and Exercise: I'm doing very well with my diet and exercise. I thought it would be much harder, since I am on my own for both lunch and dinner now with the night classes. I usually have something frozen with some fruit for lunch, some cottage cheese for a snack, and then a salad or sandwich for dinner. Maybe not as healthy as if I were eating Brian's cooking for dinner, but pretty good for a girl who hates cooking! I do manage to exercise every morning. One of the benefits of part-time is that I have a ton of time at home to keep up with an exercise regimen. I can usually manage 2 miles running on the treadmill, then 1.5 walking on a steep incline. Before working night, I would alternate that with yoga twice a week, but yoga happens too early for me to get to in the morning, and the evening classes are at the same time I am teaching. I'm looking into prenatal yoga DVDs to fill the gap--any suggestions?
Not much to report this week. I've got acne like a teenager again and my face feels like an oil slick by the end of the day, which really sucks, but overall I feel pretty good. I was having some hip pain earlier this weekend, but I think it was from wearing heels all week and not baby-related. I am way less heat tolerant than I was before--even a short time outside makes me very uncomfortable. The treadmill we bought may have been one of the best investments ever!
