Wednesday's Weigh In

I am up 1.1 from last Wednesday. Total 13 pounds gained at 31 weeks pregnant. Happy with that! This is me & Baby O on our 3.1 mile (I did a 5K!) walk this morning. We got up at 9:00 am this morning (my boys & I slept in!) then we got dressed, ate breakfast, and headed to the gym. I needed to pick up my inhaler from CVS & I really wanted to walk. So I dropped boys off in Y daycare, and I walked and walked around the YMCA trail while waiting for my husband (who was in a meeting at church). I ended up doing 3.1 miles in 1 hour 16 mins. My slowest 5K time
E V E R. Funny thing is I felt like I was going my fastest!!

It was so nice to be outside in the sun, to be alone with God & my baby. I knew my boys were getting exercise, and were having fun. It was just so nice. 3 miles wasn't easy. I was walking 26 min mile! That's double what I usually run! I really didn't care though. I just enjoyed the exercise, the quiet, and feeling my baby move around while I walked.

I caught my refection in a window as I passed and noticed how round & narrow my pregnant belly looked. Like a real basketball belly. Never had one of those before while pregnant! They are usually very wide, and just plain BIG. They usually blend in with the rest of my big body. This time is quite different & I like it.

31 Weeks & I can still walk a 5K, and touch my toes. Now that's awesome my friends.

Love, The Curvy Housewife

Good job! My pastor calls those prayer walks. He talks about going on them a lot.

You have such a cute belly!
