"Part" of todays lunch!!
Spinch, green leaf lettuce, carrots, bell pepper, brocolli, cucumber...topped with raw sunflower seeds...yum! I will probably have some peanut putter toast too for protein. I am doing my best to get LOTS of green veggies iron level was WAY LOW at my last midwife appt, so I'm having to double my iron intake. What better way then with fresh veggies??!!!!

Last Friday I ran 2 miles and walked 1 mile. I am only 2 miles away from my 500 mile goal!! yipee!!! I'm sure I'll reach that goal today, if not today, then definitely TOMORROW!!!!

I took Tuesday off from ALL exercise...let my leg get some rest:) Yesterday I did a 3 mile bike ride with Walker, no running still. But I did clean the WHOLE HOUSE...that's major exercise right there!!! Today I did run 2.5 miles and walked 1 mile...I felt pretty good, and my leg wasn't hurting. I think I can't run EVERY day...but need to space it out for now and not do as much :(
but it's what's best for my body right now!!!!

Today was a disappointing run:( I ran 1 mile...then walked for 10 minutes at 4.0 incline and 4.0 speed...then ran another mile...then walked at 5.0 incline and 4.0 speed...then ran another 1/2 mile. I didn't feel like it was a great run...and I wasn't feeling that great. Hence the walking in between running. I keep getting this pain shooting down the inside of my right leg, and my left leg kept feeling like it was falling asleep!! It was so weird. I don't know if the right leg pain is because of being prego or what...but if it continues, I don't know how much longer I can run. It is VERY painful....even after I'm done, I can still feel it and it makes me limp a little bit:( very, very sad!!!!

Thursday: I ran a grand total of 5 miles! I was very happy. It was quite funny, because when I left the house to go on my run...I wasn't really feeling it. And my first mile I was thinking, well, this might be a short run today! But after the first mile I was feeling really good and the little babe was cooperating nicely! I don't know how much longer I can keep running, especially for that amount of time....but if you know me, I'll do it until I just can't do it anymore! The fact that it was a BEAUTIFUL day outside that day had a LOT to do with the way I was feeling. The weather has been so perfect here this past week, and I'm more then beyond READY for the change. Every day I've thought, wow, this is great running weather!!!! When I got home I was still feeling really good, but as the night time came...I could feel the effects of running 5 miles and being a week away to being 6 months pregnant!!!! Needless to say, Friday came and no exercising of ANY sort was on my mind! I was still feeling it from Thursday! Saturday the kids and Nathan got on their bikes and I ran. I did around 2.5 miles. Not a WHOLE lot but enough for me that day...enough to get the want of "running" out of my system!! And it was great being all together as a family!
