I ran today!

I did about 2 and a quarter miles today! I did a mile on the treadmill at the gym - with only one stop at 1/2 way for a few seconds. It felt good!  Maybe that will help get things moving along.  We dropped Nick off at the Y playzone and 30 minutes later they came to get me because he wouldn't stop crying. Aww.. it was his 3rd time there this week and I thought he was getting used to it (the other 2 days he seemed to enjoy it!) but today he wasn't into it.  I got in the rest at home while Nick was napping. 

Yesterday I took some almond/pecan/cashew butter + chia seeds + flaxseed + oatmeal and topped it with 'ice cream."  I wanted something nut butterish and it was good!  What's your take on uncooked oats? I wasn't sure if I should cook mu concoction in little balls.  I've made chocolate protein 'ice cream' and strawberry protein 'ice cream' today and last night to go with oats, and I want to make this high protein "cake" at some point. The 'ice cream' makes a huge portion, is very refreshing and keeps you full for a while.  I think I am going to order a chocolate and vanilla whey protein from Jay Robb. What's your favorite protein powder? Before I was using Aria (Trader Joe's sells it).   Maybe once you start telling yourself this stuff is dessert, you don't need the real deal?

  2. Well done - I'd kill to walk a mile let alone run one!
    The evening before I went into labour I went for a 2 hour hike and now nearly 12 days on a 5 min jaunt round the block is exhausting!
    Poor Nick - who knows why he didn't like it today!
    Take care,

  8. Nice job on the run! Hope it makes baby come really soon!
    Aw, poor Nick. My little one has gone on and off with the gym childcare, but I think he's getting used to it. I think it just takes time for them to make it part of their usual routine.
    I should take tips from you to eat more protein, especially for recovery from long workouts! My husbands swears by his protein shakes.

  9. I've been out of town for a few days and I was wondering how you were! Yay for a run! As for the efffacement stuff, I heard the more you are effaced before you start labor the quicker it will go. That's what I heard though, not too sure if that's right!
