26 weeks, and a discount code

I think I’ve mentioned before me goal for running during this pregnancy is to make it to 30 weeks. I’m less than 4 weeks out from that goal. I’m going to try not to do a week by week break down on the pregnancy because it seems to make it last forever….
But this is my last week in the 2nd trimester. I can already feel my nose growing and my feet starting to swell. The last three months of pregnancy are not pretty for me.
No matter what I eat or try to watch my weight I will still gain at least 30lbs. (I gained 50 with the twins). Genetics I guess.
I still managed to get 7 miles in today, and my run went a lot better than last weeks. My first couple miles were still 10 minute miles, but the last few were around 9 minutes miles. Here’s a couple of pics:

My feet are disappearing, ahh!:

Saturday’s run was very difficult to me. I told myself I want to get to 3 miles and if I wasn’t in a grove I would get off and do the elliptical. At 3 miles I felt great and made it to six miles. My average pace was the slowest to date, I finished six in just under an hour. But I know I have to listen to my body and do what it tells me!

After I get done at the gym, I always bring my kids back to get some energy out. We use our college gym, and they have a basketball court so we take the kids in there to shoot around and play. Cael has been working really hard at basketball and he will start officially next week. Devin does a great job working with him, and he is quite the little player for it only being his first year.

My little kids always like to join in the workout fun:

These are not staged pictures and I’m glad I was quick enough to snap them. It makes my heart happy to see my kids being active, and I hope that I am a good example to them. We do our best to get them out of the house and into environments where they can be active in a kid way:)

Where do you work out?

Fellow parents, how do you get your kids out of the house?

Cool stuff on Zulily and a new ab workout

Oh how I can’t wait to work my abs again! But I’m still putting together workouts so here is a great ab routine:

Here are the links to the moves:

Revolved Ab pose
Bicycle crunches
Toe touches
Hip touch plank

I promised myself I wouldn’t buy anything the month of January that we didn’t need, dang you Zulily! Ok I haven’t bought anything yet but it’s sitting in my cart begging to be bought, haha. I’ve wanted a balancing board and weighted ball for a while, but I’m trying to hold off. I mean really I’m not going to be able to use it for a few months anyway. But if any of you have Christmas money to spend they had some good stuff on their site!

Weighted Pilates ball

Stability Ball
