I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

29 Week Belly Pic

That's me. All of me. All 148 pounds, 28 pounds gained of me. Sigh....
I feel it this week. The weight. I am slower and HATE the look of my arms and face. THIS is a good pic. The other 748 that it took to get this 'candid' photo....not so much. The varicose veins showing that I had to crop out...not so nice looking.

Why are these pregnancy logs all about weight?? Because EVERYTHING else about this pregnancy is PERFECT and WONDERFUL. The weight gain is ANNOYING...so I write about it.
So there.

I managed to hop onto the elliptical this morning at the YMCA. I must not have eaten a big enough breakfast because whoa! At 10 minutes my blood sugar plummeted. So off I got and to the juice bar for some orange juice quick!!!

I did NOT like that at all. Note to self...left over cereal not enough for breakfast.
Normally I make sure I eat enough, but this morning we were rushing around so we could drive hubby to the church to send him off on his 2 week trip to the Ukraine. I kind of forgot about breakfast as we got ready.

I won't make that mistake again.

Although I hate to look at my ballooning body (because really I FEEL smaller than I look...and sexier), I know I NEED to keep eating and eat well. So I do....Eat....and eat.... sigh.
