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! 😀
