Diet and Exercise: I got 4 days of exercise in this week. I did 2 days on the treadmill, and then 2 days of yoga DVDs. I really enjoyed the yoga--it was nice to stretch and relax in a different way. I think I'm going to try and keep up this schedule as much as possible. Diet was pretty good as well. I'm getting better at having healthier snacks around and going to them instead of the unhealthy ones!

Diet and Exercise: I managed 3 days on the treadmill this week. On a sad note, it seems my running days are over. I ran a mile on Monday, and was in severe pain in my pelvis for the rest of the week. I think my uterus is just too big now for me to be able to run. I'm actually very sad about it, since as I've said, I ran for years as exercise and just don't feel like it's been a workout unless there is running involved. I am still walking on an incline about 2.5 miles, and doing the yoga DVDs on alternate days. I actually like the DVDs, and feel like they will help me with the soreness once I start doing them regularly. It's a cheap substitute for running, but I guess it'll have to do!
On a side note, there was a woman on the message board who posted that she ran before getting pregnant, but had to stop because of morning sickness/other issues in her first trimester. She wrote a post saying that she was 25 weeks pregnant now, and wanted to know how she could get back into a running regimen! 4 other people and I basically told her she was insane, and needed to just wait until after the baby was born! I tell this to illustrate that I'm not the only crazy workout person out there!

Diet and Exercise: Due to the wine grape debacle last week, I had a ton of grading to do this week, and therefore only got in 1 day on the treadmill this week. I still haven't gotten McDonald's, but I'm getting over it. I've been doing pretty well with the diet and eating fairly healthfully. That makes up for the lack of exercise, right?

Diet and Exercise: I only got in 2 days this week. I had a sore throat early in the week, and I was worried I was getting sick so I decided just to rest and not push myself. It must have been some post nasal drip, because it never got any worse. I'm pretty happy about that! Diet really took a nose-dive--when I'm sick, I just don't want to eat healthy! I was thwarted in my attempts to have McDonald's this week. I went on Tuesday before my class, and they were closed for renovations! I couldn't believe that the one night I really wanted those sweet, sweet fries I was denied. I went to Subway instead and had a much healthier alternative, but I still want some McDonald's fries, darn it.
I've already mentioned my hips and sciatic. Beyond that I seem to be OK. So far I'm not seeing any of the odd skin things that are supposed to happen to pregnant women, although they are less likely to occur in very light skinned people. I never thought being translucent would come in handy!
