Taking a Time Out

Hello all!

Happy summer. Well, for most of us at least.

I just wanted to stop by and say that I've decided to take a wee break from blogging. I know that I said that I wanted to continue sharing workouts and tips, especially now that I'm preggers, but I've found that there's just not enough to share. 

It's a bump-off...
I'm slowly becoming aware of my own limitations, both because of my aching back, which is still not quite back to normal, and because of my increasing bump size. I'm still as active as I can be. I go to CrossFit as many times a week as I can and feel up to, I do my Pilates, cycle wherever possible (not on the road bike but on my upright Pashley) and walk whenever the mood takes me. Sometimes that's just a quick trip to the store or a long walk along the beach front, just because I can.

Lucky to be living here!
All that is well and good and I'm really pleased that I can continue to get on with life in the most normal fashion as being 22 weeks preggers allows. But I've also realized that when people tell you that life changes once you have a kid, they're not quite correct: life changes from the moment you're pregnant! And while a lot of of this stuff is fascinating to me and my mom, I doubt it'll be all that interesting to you. 
 
This has never been the kind of blog where I tell you about my daily meals and other random going ons of my life and recently I've just all too often found that there just hasn't been anything exciting worth sharing with you all. I'm not racing, I'm not training for anything in particular, I'm not reaching any lifting milestones or knocking out any strict pull ups. My focus, other than the usual work, play, family and friends is on staying healthy and being as prepared for having a healthy and strong baby (and birth!!!) as possible, so put plainly: I ain't got much to talk about!

Gratuitous scones, cream and berries pic! They were delish.
I won't make any promises as to if and when I'll be back, but in the meantime, make sure you enjoy your summer and good luck with all your races and other exciting ventures you've got ahead of you! If you want to keep up with what's been going on down here on the south coast, you can still reach me via the Itchy Feet email addy, I'm still using Facebook and Instagram and every once in a while I even venture over into the Twittersphere. And if you see me waddling along the Brighton seafront, make sure to come and say hi!

Thank you all for being awesome.
