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!
