Holy Heartburn!

If I could breathe flames, I would, and I am fairly certain I am very close to doing so!

Being pregnant just stinks sometimes. I had a beautiful and yummy salad with romaine, mushrooms, tomatoes,  carrots, bell peppers, turkey, some shredded cheese, pickles, and a couple tablespoons of ranch. It was heavenly *imagine angelic hums here*! I ate the heck outta that salad. And my little man did flips and flops, so apparently he enjoyed it too. 

I think I shall have one everyday for lunch this week.

As yummy as it is, I must be a glutton for punishment because I have heartburn that would scare the devil himself! And I will definitely do it again tomorrow. It is so horrible. It is like a combination of all the veggies and the dressing. It is bad. 

Like I said...being pregnant sucks sometimes.

Oh and to top that off I made some homemade salsa last night, and ate about a half a cup for snack. Yeah that tomato based delicous-ness with jalapeno chopped up in it. Ouch! But oh so good...



But it will be worth it. He will be healthy. I am healthy. And even though we are paying for it now, it was so worth it. 

Every. Single. Horribly. Daunting. Heartburn. Ridden. Bite.

I Need A Run

So I haven't been running much during my pregnancy, simply because I get too hot...Florida Summers Suck For Us Pregnant Ladies...and because my heart rate gets way too high, which can be dangerous for little baby boy.

And it is killing me!

I want. No need. I need to go for a run. I hate that I am limited with my fitness now. I wasn't in the early stages which was wonderful, but now that I want to run...I can't.

It Sucks!

I shouldn't be so whiny. I have a very healthy baby. I have gained minimal weight. I am perfectly healthy. I only have nine more weeks to go. But that does not curb my need to run. Poo.

I keep reminding myself that as much as it stinks it is for such an amazing and greater purpose. And one day I will be taking my handsome little man running with me. Shoot. As bad as I want to run...maybe he will be a track star or something?

Olympics here we come. Move over Bolt. Little Man Moore is hot on your heels.

Okay. I might be exaggerating a little. But who knows right?

Happy 31 Weeks To Us!

ProCompression Review: Marathon Socks and Paracord Bracelet Giveaway

A few weeks ago ProCompression sent me a pair of Marathon Socks to review, and I have to admit I have been blown away. These socks are amazing and stylish.

Being pregnant comes with a lot of unpleasant side effects...one being water retention and swelling in the feet and ankles. After a workout or a busy day on my feet I have had issues with swelling. I have read a ton of reviews (mostly positive) about compression socks. Granted marathon socks are really meant for athletes, they are great relief for just everyday discomfort and swelling. In all honesty ProCompression should market to pregnant women. They could make a killing.

These socks are top of the line as well. Made with nylon and poly materials...they give that tight squeeze for relief that you wish you could get from regular socks. And not only are the materials wonderful and snug but they are made here in the United States! How cool is that highlighting?!

Anyways. Back on topic!

I cannot give a more positive review. I have noticed significantly better circulation and reduced swelling in my legs, as well as the ability to stand and walk for longer periods of time. I even packed them on vacation with me because I feel I couldn't go a week without them at this point in my pregnancy. I am really anxious to see what they are capable of when I can get back into running long distances again. Maybe I will be able to complete my goal of running a half by next summer!

So since Procompression is totally awesome they are giving me the wonderful gift of giving a pair of marathon socks away to one lucky reader. How awesome is that??? But to sweeten the deal I have a surprise!

Should you not be the lucky winner of the socks..you can still use a special promo code they gave me that is good for 40% off suggested retail and free shipping! SAY WHAT?
Code: PCBLG

I also have a really beautiful and stylish paracord bracelet I am giving away too! Made here is the USA!
