Last night was Monday night (duh). Mondays are tough. Mondays are even tougher when you're 6.5 months pregnant, commute an hour each way to work with a toddler and you are training said toddler to be potty trained (read: 11:30 am potty visits, 4 am potty visits oy).

The last thing I wanted to do when I got home was go for a run. I looked longingly at the elliptical but when I saw that there was some hint of daylight left I decided to go for a walk/run through the neighborhood. My back and hip has been killing me lately so this was mostly a walk up the hills and run the flats when I felt like it kind of night. I was some what deflated that I wasn't moving or running as well as I would have liked. I only managed about 2.5 miles total. It was dark and Vans had a soccer game and I owed the Peanut a few rounds of Candyland.

told ya it was DARK out there

Tonight I think I am going to hit the elliptical after the Peanut's swim lesson. I need a break from the jarring that running seems to be giving me lately. As boring at the elliptical is, at least it is something in the form of activity. Just like last night's measly 2.5 (hilly) miles was something resembling movement.

I don't have to work this weekend which is nice. We are prepping the house for a friendly gathering aka BBQ (um, in the rain?). Last weekend I worked however but it involved quite a bit of moving around. My usual Saturday location is the Fleet Feet Roseville store but they have recently under gone a major renovation/expansion (if you haven't seen it yet, it's gorgeous! go now!). However, they had just lacquered the floors the night before I showed up which made it a bit too toxic for this pregnant lady. Instead, I worked over at Fleet Feet Fair-Oaks location with some familiar faces that I had not worked with in a while. It was a fun day.

The Peanut and Vans had a fun day as well which included a visit the park and a small father/daughter photo session.

what a sweet face!

yes, she gets away with murder sometimes
love her


  1. She is too cute! I think any movement at this point is good just don't overdo it (easy said than done huh). Hopefully that back pain will go away soon! Hope the pregnancy is going well otherwise :)

  2. Wow, Pam! Congrats on the pregnancy! (I've been away from the blogs way too long) Peanut is such a cutie patutie! So cool that she's taking swimming lessons! I was just in the FF Rsvl store and was in awe! I spent way too much money there as usual :(
