I’m getting to the point where I’m really anxious and antsy to meet my Baby Boy. Any little ache or discomfort and I think that it might be the start of labor…but no, still here, on the couch, with my feet up, waiting…
I had a nice weekend of seeing my husband’s relatives for their annual Holiday get-together. It’s always nice to see the extended family and catch up with them. We then attended a fundraiser event on Saturday night for the parks committee in our town. It took place at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum mansion, once owned by George Griswold Frelinghuysen, NYC attorney and president of Ballantine Brewing Company, it is now a center for educational programs, horticulture and botanical literature. We actually had our engagement photos taken on the grounds of the mansion, but Saturday night was our first time actually stepping foot inside the mansion. It was a true beauty! Everything I love about older homes- the architecture, the detailing, the fireplaces…
I’m still working out here and there, although I’m so nervous about my water breaking at the gym…eek! I’m feeling pretty big lately so I have to be extra careful. I’m done coaching until sometime next year, and I hope to get a pre/post-natal certification to add to my fitness resume.
A good one I did last week at CrossFit was this EMOM (every minute on the minute) for 12 minutes:
14 front squats (35# barbell)
50 single unders (double unders make me nervous I’m going to pee myself!)
15 ring rows
I actually have really enjoyed doing ring rows throughout my pregnancy. I haven’t had to modify them and they make me feel strong!
I also went on a nice 30-minute walk around my neighborhood this weekend. The weather in NJ has been unbelievably nice and I’m taking full advantage.
That’s it for now…off to fold some laundry and keep my mind occupied!
