A mom's adventures in keeping healthy, keeping her sanity, and making stuff.

The start of a new type of blog.

So. I’ve been sick. First it was some sort of crud that made me miserable. Runny nose, congested, cough like you wouldn’t believe (unless you have had bronchitis, then you would believe it), sinuses so clogged up they made my teeth hurt. It was a miserable time. I got over that and went immediately into morning sickness. I never realized how easy I had it with my first pregnancy. I had a little nausea with Sol, maybe threw up 3 times, got sick at the smell of gas, and couldn’t stomach tomatoes. That was it. This kid is making me nauseous almost all of the time. I had a free pass yesterday with no morning sickness, but made up for it today with a double dose. All I can say is that it is a good thing I have plastic bags in my car…

I have also discovered that I do not do well with most sweet things, coconut, or chicken. I am craving beef like it is going out style and am in love with kiwis and strawberries. Could be worse. I do mourn the chicken as that is one of the big staples of my diet. It can be cooked up in so many different ways and goes so well with so many things.

I have slacked off of my exercising in a shameful way. I am going to post a list of what I hope to accomplish every day of the week:

Sunday: Hike B- Mountain (approx 5 mile round trip)

Monday: Walk with some jogging

Tuesday: Yoga

Wednesday: Walking

Thursday: Walk with some jogging

Friday: Yoga

Saturday: Walk with some jogging

The slight jogging is my attempt to keep up a little bit with the C25K program. I will not attempt any 5K’s while pregnant, but if I can handle a little jogging, I will keep doing that.

I have already started to wear maternity clothes… I was in my 2nd trimester with Sol before I got maternity clothes. At this moment, I am about 9 weeks along. I’ve heard subsequent pregnancies do show up a lot earlier. I guess I wasn’t expecting to be this uncomfortable this early on heh.
