Finally Finished

Yesterday, I finally finished my last class in my master's program.  I have an A so far in that class, not including the final.  If I got an A on the final, I will graduate in may Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0 in all of my graduate coursework!
Mind you, I'll graduate two weeks before my due date, so I may or may not actually walk, but I'm happy to be done.  It's been a long road, and I have so much free time now that I can focus a little more on my projects at home.

Working Out While Pregnant

I know that one of the best ways to have a good labor is to be in shape.  While I'm not quite in the shape I wanted to be when I got pregnant, I'm making the best of it.  I didn't work out at all in the first trimester, but starting January 1, I've been at it at least three times a week. 

In the mornings,  I use the Walk Away the Pounds videos:
 The first DVD I got when I was in college almost 10 years ago.  They still work just fine, but I've seen each version (1 mile, 2 miles, and 3 miles) a million times.

The second I bought last week because I was so bored with the first.  The videos weren't quite fulfilling all of my needs, so I went on a search through netflix and found Crunch's Yoga Mama video:

Right now, my exercise plan is 2-3 miles in the morning before work, and yoga in the evenings when *B* is at school.  While I may not be the sleekest pregnant woman out there, I'm determined to have enough stamina to get through my child's birth.  I just hope that it's not too little, too late.
