This is what happens when the February calendar picture is chocolate, and you know your days of "eating for 2" are coming to a close. Haha! I have some free calendar with recipes on it from Betty Crocker or one of those places and February's picture is "easy brownie torte." It calls for a box of brownie mix and icing mix, but I don't usually do mixes so I made my own brownie torte. Bad bad bad. It is fitting though, that our baby is going to be born in February, a month that can be known for valentine's chocolates. I am a chocolate addict! And the baby has been getting at least a piece of chocolate everyday for sure, so this poor child will probably be an addict too! (Oh yes, and this includes my over consumption of mint chocolate gu!)
Doctor's appointment today - 50% effaced and 1 cm dilated. I hope that means nothing, because I am not ready! I need to bake and eat more things and have at least one more weekend! And I really want to make it through the next week of school at least!! I just finished a unit in one class and finish one in another class on Thursday and my last class I start another one on Monday. The doctor said probably on the other side of Valentines - so the 15th counts as the other side and probably that the baby wouldn't be late. But really can they REALLY tell? Isn't the bambino in charge here?
Running - yesterday before yoga I did 1.65 miles and today did 5.5. Yesterday was slow and steady and today felt great! Both were on the treadmill. I'm still running - that is what I am thankful for today. I need to start doing that again following AB's lead. She is so inspiring.
- I can still run!
- I'm not a mom, yet! (don't take that the wrong way, I'm just not ready, YET!)
- Today was my last teacher observation and I'll finally be tenured after this year (even though it is year 7!)
