Hi, friends! And just like that another week has come and gone! Quick heads up, I’ll mention this again Monday’s post but next week through Monday will be sparse on the blogging front. We have a bunch of Mr. Hungry’s family coming into town and staying at our house for Mr. Hungry’s grandmas birthday.
Between prewriting posts for the fall and keeping things running smoothly now, I’ve been working as much and as long as I can stay away. It’s definitely time for a mini break to recharge, so I’m taking this opportunity to keep it light on the work front for the week. As always I appreciate your continued support of Hungry Hobby! Of course, you can find daily nonsense on insta stories as well!
First, up for local friends, I’ve got another seminar this weekend in town. If you can make it I’d love to see you there!
These seminars have been so much fun! And great reminders for myself about how to fight my preggo sugar cravings!
Now let’s do the fitness thing!
Fitness – 26 Weeks Pregnant
I’ll be honest, as the weeks go by writing down my workouts is becoming an emotional experience. When I sit down to write these posts I think to myself things like “I should be doing so much more, I wish I could just pretend like everything is great, maybe I’ll stop recording my weekly workouts no one will miss it.” Then I remember that I’m not the only pregnant woman to feel this way.
If the only people out there recording their workouts are the workout goddesses (not saying I don’t wish I was one of them because I do) then more people will feel bad about what they are able to do and they shouldn’t. We each do what feels right for our bodies, and we (read talking to myself here) need to honor that.
So in the spirit of honesty, the last couple of weeks, I’ve slowed way down due to an aggravated SI joint and HIT workouts not feeling the best on the bladder. What feels great is swimming, upper body lifting, and lots of walking. So, that’s what I’ve stuck too.
Friday (7/13) – short morning walk of 2 miles and swam 1,050 meters in a pyramid style workout which kept things moving along so fast I thought I’d put it in a graphic for you!
Saturday (7/14) – morning walk 3 miles
Sunday (7/15) – off
Monday (7/16) – morning walk 3 miles and upper body lifting session
I was lacking my own inspiration so I did a modified workout from @pbfingers IG stories account! She has great workout inspiration!
Tuesday (7/17) – morning walk 2.5 miles
Wednesday (7/18) – morning walk 2 miles – and the fun part about yesterday was I was texting people the videos of the coyote I had just saw and rolled my ankle. If you remember I rolled my ankle at 9 weeks and it has been weak ever since. Do to relaxin, the hormone that relaxes ligaments during pregnancy, I don’t think that ankle will be able to truly heal until after baby comes. So, I’ve been on guard that something like this might happen, I iced it and wore my compression socks all day to help the recovery along.
Thursday (7/19) – letting my ankle recover, it already feels much better so I did an upper body lifting working.
By some miracle, we haven’t been eating out that much recently.
