Last week was a good one! We had some more beautiful May weather! There have been some perfect running weather days, but I have to say that I’m enjoying the break and don’t miss it too much.  I’ll be excited to run this summer/fall though and sweat!

One of my favorite workouts this week was doing TRX sets with a lap on the track in between. I felt good so I was able to run about a half mile total in between sets, which felt good! Otherwise I have been doing the elliptical to warm up or for 20-25 min then doing a lifting set.  I also love the Unite Fitness ones to switch it up!

On the weekend I like to walk a few miles instead of doing any kind of strength work.
I’m ready to be able to do more intense workouts because I’m getting bored of the elliptical!

Officially full term! I am feeling good. Sleeping is a pain but other than that I don’t really have any complaints. I’m carrying really high up so sitting in a chair isn’t super comfortable, and heartburn is back.

Some of the things I made this week that were awesome:

I had made some cashew sour cream, and added salsa to it with Daiya cheese for a taco dip Monday night. Another night I made a massaged kale salad with cucumbers, fake bacon, red onions, croutons, hemp seeds and raw ranch dressing. Yum! I loved the raw ranch!  This was my take on their savory kale caesar salad: Marinated kale, romaine hearts, chopped Tempeh bacon, chunky avocado, cucumber, croutons, veggie parmesan.
