Today we hosted my husband’s sister and her family for an early Christmas celebration since we won’t see them on actual Christmas. I’m sure many of you also either hosted or attended Holiday parties… I just love this time of year! I do miss my family in South America though; that’s the bittersweet part. It was 2 years ago that I was there with them and my grandmother was still alive. Great memories that I’ll cherisfh forever 😔
Although we haven’t gotten a tree yet, I did manage to pull out a few decorations and cleaned the house a little bit to have our house look presentable. We’re in the process of having the house painted (almost done!) So it was great having some freshly painted rooms to hang out in.
Last week I felt a big change in my energy levels. I was practically in bed all week, feeling oh so tired. Only made it to CrossFit on Monday and did one at home workout on Wednesday…or was it Thursday? Pregnancy brain has hit me full-on by the way! I’m super forgetful and can’t do math anymore 😕
I did manage to do a mini at home WOD today using my dumbbells. Check it out:
5 Rounds of
12 bicep curls
12 strict presses
30 sec wall sits
30 side bends
10 pulsing lunges (each leg)
15 air squats
It’s all about taking it easy at this point, nothing heavy and no brusque movements. I’m focusing on keeping my core engaged as usual. I’m very happy that I’ve managed to only gain a healthy amount of weight of just under 20 pounds. Although it seems like I’ve been wanting junk food the past few days 🙈 so maybe that number will creep up over the next couple of weeks. Oops!
Just a few more days of work this week and then I go on maternity leave. I’m hoping to post more often then.
Have a nice, relaxing Sunday!
