Hello friends and Happy Monday!
Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend because I know I did. I didn't do anything out of the norm, but doing nothing has become my favorite thing to do since I've been pregnant. I have found pure contentment in staying at home watching old movies while hubby and I barbecue some good food. It's the little things like reading a good book or going to a nice restaurant that I have found true enjoyment in doing. Perhaps it's because I get really tired by the end of the day, but whatever it is, I had a great weekend with my hubs.
Let's see, what did I do? Pregnant women tend to get a lot of brain farts so bear with me while I try to re-cap my weekend. I decided to sleep in on Saturday morning, so at about noon I got ready and headed over to Footworks in South Miami to visit my friend and Newton sneaker educator, Christina Botero. Christina was presenting the new Newton sneakers: Energy NR and MV 3.

The Energy NR (OMG super comfortable! They felt like socks and fit like a glove).
The MV 3 Racers (They are lightweight and extremely comfortable. They're definitely a 5K shoe).
Christina gave me these hot pink Newton socks. I <3 them!
After visiting Christina, I went home and decided to go for an easy 4 miler. The weather was absolutely dreadful. It was muggy and hot. There was no way I could run more than 4 miles, so I went home after my run and did a quick HIIT workout that consisted of:
5 sets of:
20 air squats
30 second plank holds
After a few hours of relaxing at home, the hubs took me, my mother-in-law and his cousin Casandra to Seasons 52. I love love that place because they change the menu every season and their meals are under 500 calories. I ordered the Vegetarian Tasting entree, which included, triple grain quinoa, cedar toasted tofu with mango chutney, a soft tact and seasonal veggies.
On Sunday morning I woke up at 6:30 am and went for the long run of the week. I sported this new tank top that I bought online at For Two Fitness.
Running for two ;)
14.5 miles later...
I felt pretty good after the run. I made sure to stay hydrated during the run by drinking water at every water fountain and I kept the baby cool by splashing cool water in my belly.
After what seemed to be a marathon, hubby and I went to church and then we decided to go here:
OMG we were so lost in there! We had no clue what anything was. We looked at some strollers and had no idea how to use them. After 30 minutes, we left and went home to watch some tutorials on the items that we looked at. Such amateurs, I KNOW =(
AND.... An update on the
sex exposure gender reveal of our baby....Drum roll....
BOY!! Hubs and I decided on the name MYLES ;)
So, how was your weekend?
I'm grateful for having the energy
to do the things that I love to do.
