Not Running with a Bump

Well hi. What a weird time we are experiencing right now. I want to pretend everything is normal but it’s not. I’m trying my best to stay positive but between watching the news and the weather here lately it’s been a tough task.

Thank God for kids and family! Harry literally makes me laugh all day every day and it melts my heart. There’s the silver lining-extra time to hug and snuggle my boy. He has no idea bad things are happening right now and keeps me calm and sane.

Harry is now a year and a half old. I can’t believe it. He’s growing like a week. He eats everything you put in front of him. When he’s not busy following his bah pa around he’s showing us his belly. I think he realizes my belly is growing and he’s fascinated by it.

He also LOvES being outside. When it’s time to go in he literally turns to jelly and you have to drag him in. It’s hilarious. He loves going for walks and playing with all the different balls.

As for myself, I’m doing alright. I have had a terrible pain in my left butt and finally decided to see a chiro last week. She’s more than a chiro actually, she’s a saint. I have no fear she will help me physically, mentally, and emotionally. Sam has been seeing her for over a month now so I know she’s good.

Each day I swear my belly grows. This baby is non stop moving. It’s so cool but also creepy when I can see her arms and legs poking out of my skin. I’m a little over 26 weeks now and overall things are going well.

I’ve been trying to get 4 lifts in a week and was doing 3 runs a week but now I’m not running at all on account of this left cheek. So I’m going to commit to a daily walk with Harry and Ruth and biking (stationary) 2 times a week.

I’m really going to focus on rest, healing, and staying healthy right now and as hard as that is for me I’m learning the importance of recovering your body. Sometimes I forget I’m growing a human and try to take on too much. I am learning it’s OK to say no (this quarantine thing is also helping with that lol).

So in light of rest and recovery, I purchased some amazing face products from my favorite place to get facials. Since facials won’t be happening for a little while I decided to treat myself at home. The collagen and vita c spritz are my new obsessions. For once I’m actually excited to wash my face LOL. I guess I’m growing up hahaha.

So other than cleaning, walking, Neal prepping, and showering, today is about family time, game playing, snuggles, and icing of the buttock. I hope you’re hanging in there. Stay busy, journal, FaceTime Yahtzee with friends and family…do what you need to get through these times and take care of yourself.

XO
