I’m super bummed—I had a rocking prenatal barre workout ready to go for last night, but I had to postpone the class when most of the ladies ended up being unable to make it. So disappointed!
I still took an awkward solo pic to prove to you that I was there. (And to practice using my brand new tripod—why didn’t I get one of those years ago???)
(Rocking my new For Two Fitness tank—review coming soon!)
It’s particularly hard to reschedule classes when all of your students are preggo—if I tagged another class onto the end of the series, we’d be going past one girl’s due date. So it looks like we might be doubling up on classes one week later this month. Bring it!
Hopefully, someday, I’ll be teaching a class with a bigger regular attendance, so I won’t have to worry about this anymore. I just keep reminding myself: no matter how many people come or don’t come to these classes, I’m still getting valuable experience!
It’s going to be a low-key weekend over here…we have no travel plans (phew) and no obligations outside of a baby shower tomorrow. It’s also supposed to rain all weekend—which kind of sucks, since we just bought Mason a new sandbox and were hoping to set it up in the backyard.
In other news: I weighed myself this morning and it was–surprise surprise–pretty depressing! (I guess I just don’t feel like I weigh that much more?) I think I might have to lay off the scale for the rest of this pregnancy, for sanity’s sake. Thoughts?
…At this point, it’s really the baby who’s packing on pounds, right?? We tend to make ‘em big around here.
And now for another dramatic subject change:
I recently got an email from a representative at Produce for Kids, asking if I’d like to help promote a campaign they’re working on. Since I like both produce and kids, I figured it was a no-brainer.
Here’s the scoop: grocery stores across the country are participating in a campaign called Get Healthy, Give Hope, where they’ll make cash donations to charities based on produce purchases. So, the more produce you buy between now and July 15, the more the stores will donate!
Participating grocery stores include: Ahold’s GIANT and Martin’s Food Stores, Giant Landover, and Stop & Shop divisions; Associated Wholesale Grocers’ Major Savings, Advantage, Independent, Country Mart, Homeland and United divisions; Meijer Stores; Price Chopper; Publix Super Markets; and Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc.’s Pick n’ Save, Rainbow Foods, Copps Food Center, Metro Market divisions.
