Other than running after my toddler (if i'm upstairs, he wants to be downstairs or outside and if i'm downstairs he's upstairs) pretty much nothing so far. We finally got a break in our 100+ weather this week. Riley and I went swimming at my brother's house a couple times prior to that but that's it. I was the same way with Riley. Too much activity made the nausea stronger so lying in bed was the answer LOL. Not possible with a 3 yr old. I finally got the tubes replaced on my bike last night so I'm gonna ride my bike and pull Riley in the trailer while hubby jogs. We're heading out in a bit here.

It's been so incredibly hot here that I haven't been getting nearly the amount of exercise I was getting before I got pregnant. Our weather also broke yesterday and we're out of the 100s. We went to the park for a nice walk this afternoon. It was so nice to get out of the house. I also chase and clean up after four children and a husband.

Pre-pregnancy I was running three times a week and doing yoga once a week. I had to cut the yoga because it's a hot studio, and I've been running/walking 2-3 times a week, I wish I ran three days a week, but I don't always feel up to it. I need to add more walking, but it's so **** hot.
I did a 4.3 mile mud run the day before I found out I was pregnant and we did a family 5 k a couple weeks ago I was trying to keep up with running/walking everyday outside but then the heat kicked in. We are lucky that we have a treadmill so I have been using that after DD goes to bed. I have been keeping up with walking and the occasional job mixed in. Can't wait to get back outside though I do a lot more walking then on the boring treadmill. It is hard to keep up now that I am so nauseated but I really don't want to gain as much weight as I did with DD so that keeps me motivated..

I have a half marathon coming up on aug 19th. Ive been alternating long runs on sunday 6 miles, 8, then 10 miles. My week day milage has been lacking however due to feeling sick amd tired. I have a treadmill right in fromt of our swamp cooler and ive been doimg most of my running there simce its been hot.
I was running about 25 miles a week until I did something to my foot last week. I've gone on two walks this week that I had to cut short because my foot hurt too bad I think I need to get it checked out. I really miss running and DS is getting stir crazy since he's used to coming with in the jogging stroller.
Once the MS kicked in at 6 1/2 weeks, I was really not up for anything. I suspect that some of my weight loss was just muscle mass since I went from 5 days a week of intense exercise to casual evening strolls now and again. I get out to do a bit of gardening, but as others said the heat makes me exhausted so quickly.
I will be talking to my doctor this week about how best to safely ramp back up the exercise once the MS is gone (please! please! please!) after doing nearly nothing for a month. Until I can consistently eat more I wouldn't want to do much more than I am because I really can't lose any more weight.
