A vitamin enhanced water beverage . . .

So, one of my newest heroes is Lissa Strodtbeck. Who is Lissa? Among other roles that she plays in my life, she's the genius who told me to drink propel to help keep my pregnancy ailments at a minimum. I stocked up on Peach, Black Cherry, & Mango Propel and I've been feeling great! On top of helping me feel better, Propel is a self-proclaimed "fitness drink." Based on that fact, Joy and I decided today that drinking a bottle is surely the equivalent of running a mile and a half.

All of that to say, I'm feeling so much better than I was last week. I actually feel like I"m back to normal. I can actually get things done at work, as opposed to staring at the computer screen trying to remember what it is that I do at camp. I haven't made tons of progress on my thesis, but I have gotten a significant amount of research done. All in all, it's been a good week so far.

Unfortunately, Wednesday and Thursday I have to help lead group building for 65 junior high students. This means I'll be standing in the freezing cold for 5 hours. I try to use the excuse "But the baby doesn't want to do that," as much as possible, but somehow it just didn't work on this assignment. Oh well . . . only two days. I can handle it.

So, how bad is it that I'm only 9 1/2 weeks pregnant and I'm ready to break out the maternity clothes? My pants are so uncomfortable. Can I still call them "maternity pants" if I'm only using them because I'm chubby? I bought something today called a "Bella Band." It's supposed to allow you to wear your normal non-maternity pants well into your pregnancy. I'll be the judge of that.

Well, we're studying the book of Mark in my small group and a lot of the questions in our workbook last night left me puzzled, so I'm going to go and try to find answers. Wish me luck!
