(I got a pedicure this week, but my belly is so big I can't see my tootsies unless I sit with my feet up.)
Hello cellulite on my calves!
(Seriously, I don't want to know what my ankles would look like if I wasn't still working out... But I'm trying to keep a good sense of humor about this. The human body is an amazing machine. If it thinks I need a little extra padding right now, who am I to argue?)
Here are the workout details from week 22...
Friday: 2 mile walk
Saturday: bailing water out of the basement and re-grading the back yard...
Seriously - will the rain on the East Coast EVER STOP???
Um... Yeah. I didn't need another workout after the home improvement projects.

Plus we walked at least 2 miles around the National Mall.

WHAT I LOVED READING THIS WEEK:
I took a break from baby-book reading this week to dig into The Complete Sherlock Holmes.
What can I say?
Some days a girl just needs a good mystery story.
(And at 99 cents on Kindle, how could I resist?)
Next week's review will be either How to Have Your Second Child First or The Second Nine Months: One Woman Tells the Real Truth about Becoming a Mom. Finally.
