Thank you all so, so much for your thoughtful comments and for opening up so much following my morning blog post. I know worrying is quite common during pregnancy and I very much appreciate you sharing personal stories, advice and kind words with me. Thank you!! You make me feel more at ease during this incredible journey!
As I said at the end of my morning blog post, I am feeling much better today! Water is my BFF and I’m tracking my intake to make sure I’m staying hydrated moving forward.
The nurse yesterday said she didn’t see a problem with me teaching spinning this morning as long as I felt better and continued to hydrate, so I headed off to teach my usual 6 a.m. class after the alarm went off and I chugged some water. I arrived equipped with an energetic playlist and added a fun song for the “ride home” at the end of class.
“What’s Up?” by 4 Non Blondes.
My goodness, I just love that song. I downloaded it last week after I heard Kimberly Nichole’s rockin’ rendition of the song on The Voice and it was a big hit in today’s class.
And I say, heeeeeeey hey hey hey…
I said hey, what’s going on?
After spinning, I headed home to make myself breakfast. My morning meal centered around a bowl of not-so-beautiful egg white oatmeal that I made with a scoop of peanut butter and cocoa powder because you simply cannot beat the chocolate + peanut butter flavor combination.
I also sipped on a cup of decaf coffee on the side and dug into an oatmeal banana flax muffin 20 minutes later.
Before heading back to the gym to round out the work day, I typed up my morning blog post, took a a much-needed shower and packed a late morning snack. I wrapped things up at the gym not too long ago and drove home for a late lunch which began with a bowl of egg salad…
And concluded with a smoothie!
To make my smoothie, I combined a frozen banana, frozen mango, almond butter, spinach, cocoa powder and Greek yogurt. Yum!
And now I’m off to Girls On The Run! Have a great Tuesday, my friends, and thanks again for your kindness this morning. You’re the best!
