The afternoon weather in Florida is pretty unpredictable this time of year. Look one direction and you see these beautiful skies…
But look the other direction and you see this:
I really want to make walking a priority during this pregnancy. I dealt with a lot of hip pain last time (as I’m sure I’ve mentioned before) and I really want to do everything I can to avoid a repeat performance. The pain didn’t really kick in until weeks 20-22 so as those weeks approach, I’m finding myself growing increasingly apprehensive. And increasingly committed to doing all I can to keep myself in shape.
So with such unpredictable afternoon/evening weather, I started thinking about my morning routine. Typically, the Mini Athlete wakes up sometime between 6-7am. He absolutely loves going on walks so this morning I decided to change things up. His dad changed his diaper while I got my walking clothes on, and then I got his morning bottle of milk ready. I loaded him up in the stroller, handed him his bottle, and he was a happy camper! Just look at those adorable baby toes.
We walked for about 25 minutes before heading back inside for me to get ready for work. We both loved the change in routine! Nothing like an early morning walk to start the day – even if he might have felt a little silly walking around the neighborhood in his pajamas.
I’m laying my clothes out for another early morning walk tomorrow – I’ll let you know how it goes!
What is your morning routine?
