Get out… and move!

I was able to take Friday off and work a half day from home before launching into a busy, hurried prep of cleaning the house, running errands, and baking up a storm for the beginning of college football season. Woohoo! We have season tickets to Air Force football this year with a bunch of our friends, and I’m looking forward to some Saturdays being filled with a lot of fun with great friends. Saturday was the season opener and while (naturally) we’ve had 80/90 degree weather all week, it cooled off significantly and it topped out in the 70s, albeit windy. My in laws were able to come down, and I have to tell you…pregnancy is starting to take a toll on my energy level. I just can’t go, go, go for a few days straight like I used to. Or I’m getting older. One of the two (or both!) It would have been a busy week regardless of the accident on Monday… I really hope this next week is much less dramatic.

Of all the things you could fill the long weekend with, why not take a little time to exercise? I took it easy last week, but I think my lack of energy can also be attributed to my lack of moving! It’s amazing how much better I feel when I get out there and exercise. Of course, the hardest step is just getting out the door.. right?

I found some inspiration to kick off this next week. What motivates you to get moving?

*hugs* I'm sure it's pregnancy, all my friends said that they also felt drained as the pregnancy progressed- even the ones who worked out on a regular basis like you do.

Glad you are doing okay :)

That baby is sucking up some of your energy! I'm not into football at all but your gatherings sound like they'll be fun. I have a my lazy Sunday mornings on the weekends, but I still feel better if I get up and MOVE. :)

Anna, I just read about your accident. I'm so sorry. That must have been really scary. So glad you and the baby are okay.
Of course you're low on energy. You are so energetic, but little Kate is taking her share (remember how active she is, too!) and you're expending quite a bit to make a comfy haven for her. Don't worry, you'll get your energy back.
Enjoy those football games!

Keep up the great work and stay focused!
