No-Run Randomness

Just a couple random thoughts from my no-run Saturday workout/donut run:

1.  This says "cryotherapy and floatation."  Which, is apparently a thing and a thing opening soon near my local workout/donut spot. 

2.  Isn't this just the saddest closed sign you've ever seen?  It's so final.  It's like they've lost all hope.

3.  You know I love to have my t-shirts talk for me. 
Getting my whole body, including the belly, in one shot is becoming increasingly difficult.  Also, I might consider applying a little makeup before my Saturday workout/donut trip.

Be In The Now.
I need a reminder on this one as often as I can get it. Especially these days.  With my impending stork delivery looming nearer and nearer, staying in the now is virtually impossible.  I can't help but look forward and worry about the unknown of what's coming.  Ahhh...wait, there it is.  The error in my thinking. Of course I can help it. I am in control of my thinking and my worrying.  I can choose to stay in the now.  I can choose to be present in my life and experience all that is NOW instead of anticipating what is to come, or more accurately, my idea of what is to come.  If I choose to be in the now I am truly living and not just being.  Who knew you could get this much wisdom from an $8.99 Old Navy shirt?!?!

Little tiny, never ending, sleep preventing, belly deforming, baby kicks aren't the only kicks on my mind these days. 

These new kicks arrived today and I couldn't be happier!

Just because I can't run, doesn't mean I can't shop, right? 

Don't worry, I haven't given up my devotion to Brooks when it comes to running/training, but I decided to change it up a little for my non-running training. I've been wearing my reguluar running shoes, Brooks PureFlows, for my daily workouts and figured it was time to give them a break until I'm ready to get back on the running trails. Plus, how could I pass up such cute new shoes?!?

Working out in new shoes just feels better, doesn't it?

Brain Duh'd

Y'all, pregnancy brain is REAL!!  And, the effects are serious. 

Yesterday, I got to the gym, changed into my workout clothes, and realized I'd forgotten to pack my shoes. 

Today, I packed my gym shoes, got to the gym, and realized I'd forgotten the whole damn bag!

I swear I'm not doing it on purpose. I really do want to exercise. It's not me.  It's this baby girl. She clearly doesn't want me to be fit. She wants me at home, on the couch, eating Oreos. She's sabotaging my body and my brain!

I get that this is a time in my life where "taking it easy" and "giving myself a break" is acceptable and encouraged, but this is getting ridiculous. I do want to stay active and strong. I just don't have the brainpower these days to remember how to do it. 

Now, back to those Oreos...
