Yesterday: Cardio X
Today: Ran 3.5 miles on treadmill

It bothers me that I'm not getting any real "strength" training weights or anything like that. by the time I'm done with my cardio workouts, I'm so dang tired! I can't do anything else. So I guess my muscles, will just have to continue to be put on hold for a bit!!

Vegetable Soup

Thanks to this cute girl, I had this for lunch!!!
Well, not exactly lunch, more like a snack since I didn't eat it until 2pm!!! ha! It was VERY good and now I'll have lunch for like a whole week! yay!!!!

Vegetable Soup
Poured a super large can of chicken broth into a large saucepan. -Turned stove onto high.-Added cubed red potatoes(6-8) and baby carrots sliced in 1/2 -probably 3 cups worth. (?)-Add sea salt, coarse pepper, 2-3 cloves of minced garlic.-Let that boil for about 15 min., turn down heat to med.-Add 1-2 cups of cut up broccoli, 1 can of corn, 1 can of kidney beans, 2 more cups of broth.(I had cooked lentils in the fridge, so I put those in... 1-2 cups)(makes for a COLORFUL meal)To season I added: (shakes of) garlic salt, curry powder, tony chachere's (creole seasoning),a bit of ground marjoram, and paprika. And more salt and pepper... and voila!!Soooooo yummy and tasty, all in about 1/2 hour!!!!

Over Doing It...

So after yesterday, I was PLUM tired (sounds like my grandma, ha!) but I was able to go outside and exercise again today. Wasn't AS cool as yesterday, but still better then the heat of the summer that's for sure! I was feeling kind of yucky this I told myself just to walk, and I walked 2 miles...THEN on the 3rd mile, I talked myself into running it (that PUSH yourself harder mentality I've talked about b4)...NOT such a great idea. I was feeling like CRAP when I got back home. I knew I shouldn't have run at all husband REMINDED me that I AM pregnant and need to NOT be pushing myself when I'm not feeling well....NOTE taken today after feeling so crappy.

Slacker? No, Just Pregnant!

Okay, so last week was a YUCKY week in the exercising area. I was feeling yucky pregnancy stuff and then towards the end of the week, got a head cold. So all exercising stopped for me for a bit. This week has been WAY better and I've been able to run some, walk some and even do a round of CardioX from my P90X. I am eating more (recommended by midwife) and feeling a LOT better then I was just 2 weeks ago. yay me!!!

As for dinner, let me just tell you that for a VERY yummy recipe go here I have been CRAVING some chinese food for weeks now!!! But have NOT had any, for 2 reasons. First, I just don't want to spend the money to go buy it (cause it can be pretty darn expensive) and Second, it's VERY FATTENING!!! Deep fried chicken?? Yeah, can only imagine how many calories are in THAT!!! I came across this dish from Simply Recipes and HAD to try it. Sweet and Sour Chicken! It totally hit the spot for me and I LOVED it, including my family. AND it's so much darn healthier then take out. LOVE that aspect....I was a little apprehensive in trying it, because it was just something new...but it turned out great!!! (Forgot to take a picture:( Darn!!) I served it up with some brown rice to make it even healthier!!! It was a great meal, and it's definitely on my "okay you can make this alot" list of dinners!!!

So, after making and eating a great meal...I turned around and made some chocolate chip cookies!!! hahahahaha...
