The Week That Could

Oh gosh. Where do I even start? 

This past week's fitness activity is rather lackluster. Uhm... practically non-existent. Goodness!
Other than the mile I walked on Monday, I really haven't done much! I am definitely feeling some guilt.
Baby C must be settled in a position, which is putting some pressure on my lower back/sciatica nerve. Sometimes I feel some tingling in my legs and some numbness. Other times, it just hurts. So instead of walking on the treadmill, I tried to move around the house getting chores done. I figure that's better than just sitting on the couch.

Baby C is moving quite a bunch. Baby C moves a bunch whenever we talk politics and economics and food. I think Baby C will fit right into the family.

Here's what I have been doing all week. 
Celebrated 4th of July at boyfriend's work place and at his aunt's church for the volunteer fire department.

  Celebrated my baby's daddy's birthday. 
His sister made him a cake. 

There were a lot of candles to blow out. 
Thank goodness the fire department wasn't called in on this. 

The cake was colorful and tasty. 
P.S.: Happy Belated Birthday Dream Big Runner! 

We also had a college friend over at our place for lunch on Saturday. 
Friend is currently a biking fan and does a lot of mountain biking or trail biking (I don't know the proper biking lingo) so we had a good chat about the bikes, and he and my boyfriend chatted about polymers. Weird research people!

It is going to be another big week this week. 
I tried to psych myself up to can some tomatoes but I just couldn't muster the courage. 
So, I am having to do it this week. 
And hopefully, Baby C will find another nook to settle in and give me a break from the sciatica/back problem and that I can get some walking in. 

Hope your week was wonderful. 


  1. Thanks :) Glad to see you are enjoying your break! :)

  2. Happy B-day to your man! Sounds like you had a good week. And that baby will shift around more, so when you're comfortable again, I'm sure you'll have no problem getting back out there walking.


Thanks for reading! Do leave me a comment or two. They keep me motivated.
