I haven’t written anything in a while, due to being so sick.  Family and friends ask me all the time, “Are you feeling better, Missie?”  I am still just as sick.  However, sometimes I don’t know what to say.  When I am sitting still and have no distractions, I FEEL the sickness.  When I am moving to get things done and I am out of the house doing errands, I don’t notice how I feel, as much.  So, when I run into people and they ask, “how are you feeling”, the truth is, “I’m better now I am talking to you”.

Because I feel better when I am moving, I try to never stop moving.  Typing this at my computer makes me scared that shortly, I will want to go lay down.  I think I will be okay for a while, because my exercise high is still in effect.

For exercise during pregnancy, I am using the Couch to 5K program I have used for the last few years.  I wrote about the program last year and explained a little about how it works.  (Click here for the post from last year on the old “Thoughts of giggleFritz” blog.)  My sister and I ran two 5K’s last summer.  It was more motivating to train for those races than just running alone.  I asked my doctor if it would be safe to start running that program while I am pregnant, and he approved of it.  This morning, my sister and I started week three of the program.  It is not easy, but I feel so much better for a few hours after running.  I am also hoping it helps me bounce back more quickly after delivery.

I better be off and moving.  I have too much to do before I conk out later!

Have a great Monday! 😀
