Thank you all for the sweet comments yesterday! Keeping that one a secret for months was tough. Feels so good to finally have baby on the blog! I promise I won’t turn minutes per mile into a pregnancy/mommy blog but would love to know how much you guys want to hear about the pregnancy stuff. Do you want regular updates? Posts about pregnancy and running? Baby gear research? Q&As? Nothing at all because this internet is already overloaded with pregnancy advice? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section!
Speaking of which, it was so funny reading everyone’s “I had a hunch” notes yesterday. Apparently the lack of booze and racing made it pretty obvious that something was up (and also made it obvious that I might have drank more wine than I thought in my pre-pregnancy days…) so maybe the news wasn’t such a surprise for many of you after all! Other than my almost-daily trips to the ice cream shop, I have been trying to eat healthy to make sure little lamb has all the nutrients he/she needs to grow big. Last night we made Cook Smarts’ stuffed pesto chicken:
As I’ve gotten more into cooking whole chickens and chicken thighs, I’ve been a bit underwhelmed when it comes to cooking and eating chicken breasts. The big-time chefs are right — chicken breasts are just so dry and bland! Anyone else with me on that one? However, if you stuff them with cheese and smother them in pesto, they taste juuuuust fine.
We served ours on fancy TV dinner trays and ate while watching Unreal, a show about life behind the scenes of The Bachelor. It’s a little silly but really good in a weird way — if you’re a bachelor fan like me, I’d recommend it!
And this morning I met Katie for a run! Many of you noted in the comments yesterday that you weren’t able to run through your pregnancy. I’m grateful that running still feels fine for me and that my doctor says to just keep doing my thing if it feels good. We’ll see how the next five months play out, but for now I’m happily running for two. Six miles this morning with a bit of a bump! Hehe.
It was pitch dark outside when we started (boo) but Katie and I did see a pretty sunrise at the end. October and November are the best months for sunrises, so I can’t wait until fall is here. Plus it would be awesome if this darn heat/humidity thing finally went away.
Off to get this Thursday started, even though it feels like a Tuesday. This short week has really thrown me off!
