Hoyo! February 1st - shabam, it's the proper month for a Bean to be born!
How was January?
1) Hit 1000 fitness minutes:
Ka-blammo! Not too friggin bad, considering I'm now 2 days short of 38 weeks preggo! Yyyyeaaahhhhh!!! The thing I am most proud of? I skipped ZERO workouts! I moved a yoga day from one day to another, and swapped a few days around, but all-in-all, the number of workouts I set out to complete in January was achieved. This is fantastic! I wanted to get more walks in, but we hit a SERIOUS cold snap here for a couple weeks, so Zumba Wii had to do, and that's okay!
2) Weigh between 165 and 168 lbs on Feb 1st.
Drumroll please.... Today, I weighed in at ...
166.5! Ha! Exactly in the middle of the range I was going for? That's just cool.
Sodium retention is psychotic though. I gained 2lbs overnight in water from eating some Chinese food, and then it took 2-3 days to take off. I've been hitting my minimum 3L water per day, and that's helping immensely.
3) Get the rest of the house ready:
Work in progress! Brad is working crazy hours again this week (67 as of this morning, he probably has a 10-11 hour day today, but hopefully off tomorrow) so he hasn't been able to get some things done I've liked, but that's okay. My parents are up these past couple days helping me batch cook.
Okay, I say helping, I mean they are mostly doing it and I'm the clean-up crew. Wednesday was the shop, yesterday was prep (my Dad spent 5 hours chopping veggies!), and today is the big cook, assembly, and baking day.
They are going to come up again next week for 3-4 days, Dad has a specialist appointment in the city, and is going to clean my carpets! Yay!
Soo... kinda? I'm keeping the house in much better condition than usual, and I've even gone so far that I ironed the nursery curtains and sewed a button on a cute pair of hand-me-down baby jeans. So even though I might not be hitting concrete goals/plans, I am getting more domestic!
Goals for February:
1) 500 fitness minutes. This may change, especially if I have the baby early then get put on 6 weeks rest. But I am going to Zumba class this coming Monday, my gym membership goes on hold as of Feb 14th, so I have to make the most of it, right?
2) Have a baby.
That is all. Not putting too much pressure on in terms of weight/calories. My typical daily intake is up to 2500 - it's been in the 2700s the past few days. Staying up an extra 2-3 hours every night waiting for Brad to get home/socializing with my parents is accounting for slightly more caloric intake. Especially because Dad is all "It's my treat, it's for Bean!"
Still have not caved to a Blizzard though!! Haha, a frosty, yes! A baked yummy Starbucks treat, yes! A Blizzard... not yet
Happy February!! AND SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!!!
