October Goals and Back to Work

It's my first day back to work while I continue to recover from acute bronchitis. I am happy to say that I have made it to lunch!

I'm not going to lie. My body was confused about this dry air in the office, which led to a morning full of cough attacks. Prior to coming back to work, I had been living next to a steam humidifier; combine that with about 3 steam showers a day and it's safe to say that my lungs are missing the comforts of home.

One comfort that I brought with me to work is Italian wedding soup for lunch. This soup came from a can, and it's quite honestly the most wonderful part of my day so far.

Actually, my hot tea with honey this morning wasn't so bad, either.

Now that I'm feeling better (read: able to move around without wanting to die), I have decided that it's time to start being more conscious about eating better, too.

October Goal #1: Be more conscious about what I'm putting into my mouth.

I've made it to the 6th month of my pregnancy (pause for applause) and I have gained about 10 pounds, so far. I don't remember exactly what my doctor said about how much weight was okay for me to gain, but I feel like I am doing okay.

The important thing that I want to focus on is the quality of food I'm eating. Peanut butter toast and Gatorade pretty much got me through the past 5 days, now it's time to put a little more than carbs and peanut butter into my system.

I also want to make sure that I stay active, and stretch a lot this month. Baby steps are about to be a literal thing in my life. I am going to take it all very slow. Nothing too crazy, just adding more walks (and maybe yoga) into my life.

October Goal #2: Stay active.

And as always, water is my BFFL (best friend for life) so I'm going to make sure to drink about 120 ounces of water a day.

October Goal #3: Drink 120 ounces of water/day.

Do you have any goals for the month of October?
