Diet and Exercise: I totally slacked off this week (as expected) with the holiday! I have managed to work out everyday this week, but I am paying for taking the time off. I walked on the treadmill yesterday, and spent the rest of the day with severe groin pain. It was fine once I got up and moving, but the getting up and moving was torture! I think I'll have to cut the incline some. The yoga DVDs definitely help though, and I'm so thankful to have them!

Diet and Exercise: I did my yoga DVD 2 days this week, and would have done more, but I had a doctor's appointment on Thursday, and glucose test on Friday. I really love that DVD, since it gives me some really nice stretches, and makes me feel like I'm doing something that's really going to help me out with delivery. Brian and I moved rooms around, and emptied out the baby's room to paint (see below), so the treadmill is hooked up, but the TV is not. Since I don't read on the treadmill very well, I think I'll just be doing yoga until Brian gets the TV moved over and hooked up. I'd do it myself, but I'd probably break something. I do miss walking, and I need to get back to it. We're planning to go to Hearst Castle as part of our babymoon, and that's going to be a full day of walking. I'd love to have some stamina built up before then!

Diet and Exercise: Not so much with the exercise this week, since the key to cold recovery is plenty of rest. Diet wasn't too bad, except for not really being all that hungry. I made up for it once I started feeling better, but there were a couple of days of not eating that much at all.

Diet and Exercise: I got in 4 days of exercise this week. I did 2 days on the treadmill, and then 2 days of yoga DVDs. This week will be much worse, since the sickness will keep me down!

As promised, here are some pictures of the finished bathroom, and a few more I decided to throw in for the heck of it!
Before picture (from before we moved in)
This is a closeup of the floor--I was hesitant about the vinyl, but it looks really good!
And this is the finished product. You can't see where most of the work went (subfloor), but it looks absolutely fantastic!
And here are some really funny kitty pictures. First, Zoe "helping" Brian sort loose change:
She's always very curious when things happen on "her" floor.
He had them all stacked up nice and neat, and she just knocked them all down :)
And here are some of my favorite kitty shots. First, Snowball and Zoe:
Snowball totally knows the secret to getting behind the fireplace screen in the family room, and is definitely not sharing with Zoe! Whenever Snowball gets back there, Zoe paces back and forth and looks at her like "how did you get in there?" And you know Snowball is thinking "Ha ha!" Too cute!
And here's a shot of the 3 of them all sacked out on the bed. It's normally just the girls, but apparently Beau was feeling left out!
Lastly, I'll end with a picture of my bump taken today at almost 25 weeks (that's 5.5 months for those of you without kids). It's a self-portrait, which is why I have no face. I thought for sure it was wicked obvious that I was pregnant and that I was huge:
Instead, I just look like I ate a big meal! I'm not complaining--I'm totally going to enjoy being tiny while it lasts!
Until next week everyone!

Diet and Exercise: I got in 4 days of exercise this week. I did 2 days on the treadmill, and then 2 days of yoga DVDs. Diet was great until the weekend. Brian and I worked on painting our front room, and ended up eating a bunch of fast food in between coats. Not so good on my part!
