This is the Be Band, the Target version of the popular Bella Band. Basically what this wondrous little piece of stretchy fabric does is allow you to go around with your pants unbuttoned. For the past few weeks, there has been no buttoning the pants so I just tie them closed with a ponytail holder then put the Band on over them to hold them up/smooth things out. It's a great way to postpone maternity clothes and get several more weeks or months out of your regular clothes.
Today is my first day in maternity pants and boy are they sexy. See for yourself...nothing says foxy like a big expanse of nude colored fabric stretched over your tummy.
They are still a little loose in the waist but you really can't tell they're maternity once you have your shirt covering that belly panel. I prefer pants without the panel but these were the only khaki pants I could find long enough to fit me so I didn't have much choice. It is really nice to not have to ponytail-holder my pants together today though, so I think I could get used to this maternity pant thing!
Update on November goals: I'm failing miserably at the run every day goal. I had been feeling great with no nausea for about a week or so, then I swear as soon as I commited that goal to the blog, I regressed and started feeling pukey again. So I took a few days off, but did still get in at least a couple miles of walking the dogs every day. I ran a quick mile yesterday, then went to Body Pump this morning. I found out that our local Yoga Studio won't let you go to prenatal yoga until your 2nd trimester so I have to wait 2 weeks before I can start taking classes there.
New long term goal: Half Ironman!!! The only tri I've done is one sprint back in the summer but I loved it. Go read Carolina John's report from his first half-iron and I promise you'll be inspired and want to do one too. It will be quite awhile before I can tackle this goal, but one day I will do it.
We had a busy weekend working around the house and in the yard, so now I'm off to catch up with all of your blogs and see what ya'll have been up to!
