Apr 20 - 25 (25 weeks)

25 weeks - acorn squash

Monday - 25 weeks today. 12 minutes of planks and 24 minutes of stretching. Woke up and my shoulders, neck, and back just felt tight, the stretching felt good, but I need a massage.
Tuesday - 3+ mile walk - went all the way around the park to the round about that's on the east side. Got up early at 6 and saw the sun rise! Beautiful big sky here in Brazil!
Wednesday - Got up early to see the sunrise again, but it was cloudy, so I went to bed for another hour. At 7 am I went on a walk to the round about and back, did 400 lunges on the way, then some stretching after I got home.
Thursday - 2.97 mile morning walk around park, my favorite part of the day
Friday - Saw a workout on facebook (can't find it now) but I did a modified version of what she did ~ 4 rounds of the following:
  • 15 reps - center plank with knee taps
  • 15 reps - tricep dips
  • 30 reps - plank with alt touch shoulder
  • 15 reps - push ups (or pike press)
  • 1 minute center hold
  • 30 minute right plank on hand
  • 30 minute left plank on hand
I did a 7 minute warm up and stretch, I did 3 minutes of stretching after each round, and 15 minutes of stretching after I was done with all 4 rounds. 1 round - 4:10, 2nd - 4:00, 3rd - 3:57, 4th - 3:30. I loved exercising this morning by the dining room patio, a great way to start the day
Saturday - Went to the temple this morning. Did my workout tonight, 2.97 mile walk/jog around the park from 5:45 to 6:35.

Apr 13 - 18 (24 weeks)

24 weeks - "long as ear of corn"
Monday - 24 weeks today. Went on a morning jog/walk around the park, about 3 miles. Went clockwise this time, I think I like counterclockwise better, cause the sun isn't in my face as much. I forget to put sunblock on my face and I'm a little worried about getting my pregnancy mask again. It was a little harder to jog, oh well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. But I was able to do it still a little. :) And I did some stretching, yay
Tuesday - Went for a walk around the inside path of the park, found the beginning/end of the meter markers and one lap is 2725 meters, or 1.69 miles - so I underestimated how long it was, I was thinking just a mile. I went about a mile on the outside of the park and then entered in through the west gate and finished up my lap inside, and did 400 walking lunges once I was inside. Took me an hour
Wednesday - 12 minutes of planks (Thursday morning, making up for Wed)
Thursday - two laps around the lake path - 3.38 miles. Did my little shuffle jog most of the time to try and hurry, I started late at 7:15, got back at 8:05, not bad for time for a pregnant lady
Friday - 12 minutes of planks (Sat morning, I'm counting it for Friday though)
Saturday - 2.97 miles - one lap on outside of park. Only was able to jog a little bit, I might be getting too big, 20 minutes of stretching

Apr 6 - 11 (23 weeks)

23 weeks - Eggplant
Monday - 23 weeks today. Went for a walk/jog this morning, one lap around the outside of Parque Portugal is 4782 meters, which I found out is 2.97 miles, cool. We had a big group of Brazilians over for a FHE. One of them, who has a 9 month old baby, said I look big for 6 months. Yup, I am. Ya can't say that in the US to a prego woman, but if anyone did say it to me, I wouldn't take offense. I know I'm big... this is my 10th kid. My body knows the routine. "Ok, let's get this over with... Gain 40 pounds pronto!"
Tuesday - nothing
Wednesday - 3 mile evening walk around the park pushing Natalie in her umbrella stroller, which I did not like, hard to stand up straight when I have to push the stroller, so not going to do that again. Plus she got mad at me if she saw me with my headphones in, so I couldn't listen to music either, little stinker.
Thursday - nothing
Friday - 3 mile morning walk with 100 walking lunges.
Saturday - nothing. Was going to do planks, doh. Swam around in the pool for a while with the kids.
