Greetings! Hope you all have recovered from the DRAMATIC episode of The Bachelor last night.
^^ Crumbed chicken, salad, and mashed sweet potatoes on TV trays. Lots of ice cream to wash the crazy down
In other news, yesterday Anthony and I went for a run and it was tough.
Over the past few days I’ve started feeling really pregnant. There’s no other word I can really use to describe the feeling — other adjectives that come to mind are uncomfortable, tired, huge, and slow. Early last week I felt totally fine running, but this week it’s a struggle. I’m not really upset or anything that my pace and energy has tanked in the past few days — actually, I was surprised this didn’t happen sooner! — but it’s just interesting to me how it seemed to happen almost overnight. Perhaps baby shifted position or had a major growth spurt recently.
And we’re only 2.5 short weeks (or maybe even days?!) away from my due date so it’s all good. In the meantime I also have Anthony who will tie my shoe for me so I don’t have to bend down
Usually I’d run to the end of the street and back to make it to a solid 4, but I was so over this run that I didn’t care. Sorry, satellites!
In an effort to make up for all the grey, dreary running photos I’ve had lately (when will Nashville ever see the sun?!), here’s a colorful dinner:
When Alanna was in town over the weekend we stayed in and cooked one night! On the menu was arctic char, which we bought on a whim at the store. Have you ever eaten this fish? We didn’t know what to do with it but found some recipes online to help come up with a game plan. Roasted brussel sprouts, pearl couscous, and a salad on the side! Lots of green.
Table for three. Plus vino and ginger beer!
Off to ask Anthony to help tie my shoes again so I can head out the door and get this day started. See you on the flip side!
- Ever eaten arctic char?
- Did you watch the Bachelor last night? Corinne?!!
- Moms/pregnant ladies: At what point in your pregnancy did you start feeling really uncomfortable?
