What a fabulous neighborhood run today with Baby Titus!!
My workout plan for today was Turbo Jam Totally Tubular Turbo, but the desire to go running took over. I almost did not go because it looked like it might rain, but the weather was actually perfect for a run.
I find that, being pregnant, it takes me a while longer to “get into” my run and find my rhythm. It did not take me long to figure out that this is because I feel a constant need to tinkle. When I am warm-up walking, I do not feel this urge, but the moment I start running, it begins. Eventually, once I find the right tunes and find my running tempo, I can forget about everything else, including the urge to tinkle, and I just enjoy my run.
This week, I have also started enjoying something else again, finally (!!!!) The Healthiest Meal of the Day –
For the last two days, I had my Shake at 10:00a. Since I have not had a Shake forever, I went with Greenberry yesterday and Chocolate today. Both of them tasted excellent. I am currently only using half a scoop of Shakeology, as my doctor told me that a full scoop plus my daily prenatal vitamin could possibly be too much Vitamin A intake for Baby Titus. — Remember to always ask your own doctor about any supplements or workouts you might be considering while pregnant.
For the past three days, I have craved Subway for lunch, and I am very thankful for the Subway that is located just down the road from our house. It hits the spot every time now (!!!) and I am so glad to be able to say that Subway hits the spot, rather than McDonalad’s or Steak-n-Shake or Dairy Queen or Wendy’s or Arby’s curly fries or Los Bravos (yes, all of those) or any other fast food restaurant that serves me all the unhealthy foods I once craved.
Today, during what was supposed to be my “quick trip” to Target, I had to stop and browse the selection of children picture books. I found a very special book that I could not resist for Baby Titus. I have it out on our kitchen counter as another surprise for Daddy Ben when he gets home tonight (!!!) And it is too adorable not to share a couple pages with you…
I thought this book was too cute!!! I am excited for Hubby Ben to see it tonight, and eventually Baby Titus, also. Of course, since I picked out a Daddy book today, I had to pick one that Mommy would love, too. Check this one out (!!!)
I have always loved children picture books, even before being pregnant. Perhaps this is just the teacher in me?? I already have a small collection started, which is made up of picture books that I never wanted to take to school, as I knew they would get torn up while there. If you know of any especially great picture books that you love, send the name my way, please!!!
Enjoy the evening!!
Love, ~Ann & Baby Titus
