Happy Halloween from me and the lil pumpkin (who is more like the size of a lemon right now).
From what I’ve read and heard from others, the second trimester is when you usually get a little pep back in your step. I have to say, I didn’t think my pep was gone during the first trimester as I felt pretty good (not much morning sickness), and I was tired a bit but nothing a little nap couldn’t fix.
But it was like something happened last week as I merged into my second trimester. I literally felt like jumping up and dancing…I have so much energy!
Exercise: I decided to focus all that energy back towards the gym in the form of Yoga Sculpt, Zumba, and by doing an intense weight lifting workout.
Even though I felt good during the first trimester, I never really had the urge to workout. Part of my reasoning was I was trying not push it too hard, but now I just really crave the feeling of a good work out.
So my goal is to get in at least get three (45 min) workouts per week. Goal achieved… I did 3 workouts (165 minutes) of working out last week and it felt amazing!
Maternity clothes: I haven’t purchased anything new this week from the maternity section, but I’m starting to freak out because the only pair of jeans that aren’t in storage only fit when I stand up. I know that my mission over the next few days is to get some new pants and stat!
Morning sickness: None
Symptoms: Headaches! I’m trying to up my water intake, as I’m assuming some of the headaches may be from being a little dehydrated.
Sleep: My sleep is still the same, not good. I wake up a lot during the night, not really even to use the bathroom. But I just feel like I’m awake. The crazy dreams have calmed down a wee bit, but I still find myself waking up thinking what??!!!
Emotionally: I’m happy to report no crazy emotional outbursts this week! I know it’s all part of the hormones, but it’s still embarrassing to find yourself bawling while watching an episode of Glee. I mean really, they are singing and dancing, what’s so sad about that?
Cravings: Give this girl a SMOOTHIE right now!!!! I have indulged in at least three smoothies this week and I still want more. I think I am missing my blender (which is also in storage) and so wish I could just throw a handful of spinach at the Starbuck girls to add to my smoothie.
What I’m missing: I have been thinking about Sushi lately. I read somewhere that it might be okay to have a California roll since there in nothing raw in it. Thoughts anyone?
Overall: This past week I’ve been feeling pretty darn good! We have been super busy with house stuff and life stuff, I haven’t had much time to really realize that I’m feeling preggo. I guess that is a good thing!
Hope y’all have a Happy Halloween! We are keeping it super duper low key tonight. Last year we were chillin’ in a hotel in Georgia waiting to move in our new house on base. Funny how a year later we are pretty much in the same position.
