Cinco de Mayo without margaritas is like… the saddest holiday. But, I’ve made it through once and I’ll make it again. Guess I’ll just have to make up for it with some extra guacamole.
So, how am I celebrating Cinco de Mayo? First, I’m headed to my first ever appointment with a chiropractor. These extra 25 lbs have been doing a number on my lower back and sacrum lately, and with my history of that sacral stress reaction last year, I don’t want to take any risks.
Next, I’m going to take Emmaline and Bella for a walk. My workouts have been a little scattered, but most afternoons I’ve been able to at least walk 2-2.5 miles. I’ve had a few decent (but short) runs lately, but I’ve learned to be flexible and just do what feels comfortable. We have HUGE hills in my neighborhood, so I’m usually okay to run the flatter sections and walk the very steep uphill/downhill sections. My neighbors probably think I’m crazy. I’ve gotten a few comments like, “Wow, you really have your hands full!” since my daily workouts involve pushing a stroller and hanging onto a dog leash, and Bella is constantly pulling me in different directions.
And finally, I’m going to make a Mexican feast that I found on Pinterest (that will likely not turn out as perfect as the photos, but there’s no harm in trying). I won’t be drinking a margarita but I’ve already put in a request for one when we get home from the hospital. Only 7 and a half (yes, I’m counting halves) weeks until my due date!
