Howdy there you bucket of sunshine, you!
How you doin?
Hopefully, you are feeling relaxed, rested, and ready for a few days to enjoy your family and friends and fur babies. Whatever you're up to, I hope you make some time for you, your health, and your own joy.
Cause that's certainly what I'm doing this weekend. Yes, I'm hard-core nesting still, washing tiny hooded towels and organizing onesies and prepping nursing-friendly snacks (those recipes are on their way!) to freeze. But I'm also making time for some extra walks, quality time with the mister, and extra time with friends up in Dallas that we won't be able to see quite as easily in a few weeks (unless they come to us, of course).
At this point in the pregnancy, I can't say I'm ready to put up my feet and nap when I get home from work everyday. In fact, it's pretty much the opposite; I feel like I go into hyper-productivity mode when I get home from school, wanting to wipe down my bathroom counters and clean out drawers and scrub the guest toilets at around 9 p.m. each night.
With that said, have I stopped working out? Absolutely, positively not. I feel fantastic, and I know it will be beneficial for my boy and myself come labor and delivery in a few weeks.
Check out what we've been up to this week! And as always, you keep movin', too! Whether it's a yoga class or a walk or a quick circuit at the gym, your body and health deserve it!
