Jogging and a Caprese Salad

18 & 19 Week Bump

My little bump is growing! I kind of love it.

The bump is getting bigger and bigger, and it’s happening really fast. Michael has started calling me ‘big belly’ and it’s not inaccurate these days… I’m starting to get used to jogging with the extra weight and at my doctor’s appointment today I got the green light for doing a Thanksgiving 10K.

Actually, he told me that I can run as long as I don’t reach the level of effort and performance that elite runners exert. Um, yeah, I’ll keep that in mind when I start averaging sub-5:00 miles. Thanks doc!

Golf Course Trail

This is the trail around the golf course that I’ve been using. Don’t worry, I always take my pepper spray… I may or may not be a little paranoid.

After getting back from my workout, I made this lovely little salad:

Caprese Salad

Post-sweat lunch 🙂

Cute, no? Me and Michael finished it off pretty quickly.

Caprese Salad Recipe

I just used this simple recipe that came with the basil plant I bought.

Unfortunately, I didn’t love it. The tomato and basil were really good, but the mozzarella was a little overwhelming. That might have been my fault for cutting it too thick though. I really think balsamic vinegar would have improved it, but I didn’t have any handy.

And maybe it’s just me… There are a lot of people who love caprese salads, so make sure to try it and decide for yourself. Let me know what you think if you try it!

Ps: We heard our little man’s heartbeat at my doctor’s appointment today 🙂 It took him a full minute to find it, and I was silently freaking out the entire time, but he eventually located it. So fun!
