      I slept horribly last night! I woke up at 2am hungry and stressed thinking about work... After tossing around for an hour I finally got up to get something to eat. After eating I managed to pass out at 3:30am but then had to get up again at 4:30am for my workout! Ugh. I'm glad I worked out though. I'm feeling much better now... Hopefully, tonight will be better.

          I made an awesome flourless chocolate torte last night. I didn't sample it yesterday because I was full but I had a few bites today. It is delicious but I really can't eat more than a few bites at a time. It is SO filling. It's made with 10 oz of 72% bittersweet chocolate, 2 sticks of butter, 5 eggs, 1/4 cup strong coffee, 1/4 cup sugar, & vanilla. Best torte ever! And it's just sweet enough to satisfy my recent cravings for desserts...

          Another great night of sleep... 9 hours! I need to take advantage before the baby comes along...

          Also, I met a bunch of great farmers at the market yesterday. I'll be going back next weekend with a cooler so I can buy some bison and pork.

              Exciting time, isn't it? Had any sonograms lately? (I always consider them sort of a fun way to "visit" the baby. Like a prison visit!)

              ... 9 hours of sleep?! How are you managing that? Do you sleepwalk to go pee?

              Man, all that bacon sounds good. Wish I liked it. Everybody else seems to; I must be missing out!

                No sonograms since the 20 week visit where they checked that the baby was okay. All my visits since then have just consisted of them measuring externally to make sure she is growing.

                9 hours straight is RARE! I usually have to get up but lately I've been trying to drink a lot of water during the day and then not drink anything 2 hours before bedtime. That helps...

                  It's tempting to limit water intake before bed, but I find I don't really feel right if I do that. Then again I love water.

                  They're kicking it up a notch with us -- starting next week we'll have weekly quick sonos to measure and check fluid levels. They didn't do that with DD #1 though -- they keep telling me not to worry about the contractions, but then mentioned the sonos in that context, so seems like that's what is making them extra cautious.

                  You and your exercise have inspired me to get my pool stuff together again. I haven't actually _gone_ to the pool but I plan/want to, and that's the first step. If I could just get myself to do a couple times a week before Baby Day, my abs will be that much better able to deal with it post c-section (or so I imagine.) As it is I'm far too whiny and chilly to go walking like we used to so... we'll see how that goes. The pool is heated, which is nice.

                          What type of bar are you using for rows? (assuming you don't mean rowing machine)

                          I've been reading a lot about DIY gym equipment lately in relation to rows. Seems like that might be a good gateway exercise to pull-ups later.

                            It is a rowing machine I use. Rowing for calories is just a way that I can count something for the 1 minute interval of that workout.

                            Rowing has been a great substitute for running. I can still run but sometimes it is uncomfortable on the bladder!

                            Another good gateway into pull-ups is getting some iron woody bands. I used these on my pull-up bar prior to getting my pull-ups. They help take off some weight while you build up your upper body strength...

                              Yep, have some bands now. Haven't tried them yet but I expect they'll help!
