Lake Walk

Good morning to you!

I have been trying to get more activity in, because the temptation is sit down 24 hours a day is real. Like my last two pregnancies, I am dealing with varicosities that make standing more than 5 minutes painful. They are genetic and there isn't much I can do about them but deal. However, my midwife did suggest walking.

After I picked the girls up from Danielle's on Tuesday we headed to a local lake for a walk. Of course, both girls wanted to sit in the same place in the stroller. Therefore, both girls ended up walking. I suppose it is good practice for when the stroller will be inhabited again.

We ended up meeting a woman who had a beautiful parrot out for a walk. Ina had no less than 53 questions for her, so most of our walking time was spent learning about parrots and keeping Cora from jumping in the water or grabbing the parrot, which she kept on calling an "owl."

We came home to dinner already done, thanks to an easy quinoa casserole that I had assembled beforehand, and have eaten for my last 3 meals.

I told myself that I could purchase maternity workout gear if I made it to the gym three times this week (bribing myself works). Two down! Wednesday's Fitness Tiger KC Workout:
  • 10 minute EMOM: 5 eccentric push ups with a 4 count down 
  • 20 s work/20 s rest/20 s work /20 rest circuit
    • ring rows
    • ab wheel
    • upright rows with bar
    • man makers (15 lb DB)
    • hallow rocks (I planked)
    • push press alternating arms (20 lb DB)
    • bench dips
    • curls
    • plate ground to overhead
    • plank wag the tail
My legs are still (embarrassingly) sore from Monday and now my arms are sore. Can't wait to see what Friday holds.

Last night after work we met with our parents as teachers teacher and she worked on sight words with Ina. This week's project is to make her some flashcards. If she is anything like her momma, nothing is better than flash cards.

We had leftovers for dinner and then hung around outside drinking a golden milk latte and enjoying the beautiful evening. Have I mentioned how much I love spring?

I hope you have a fantastic day! 


  1. What brand of workout gear did you purchase? I have outgrown all of mine!
