The peninsula.

Over the weekend we went on a small getaway to Tróia. It was quite wonderful to relax over by the pool and specially to walk around in the white sand beach, that are still empty from the usual summer tourists.

aaah some fresh water.
aaah…!

Lately through pictures.

Life’s been busy. Work and feeling tired all the freaking time has had its toll on me. Everyday when I come back home I just want peace and quiet and a few hours of sleep.

At 28 weeks (6 months, roughly) I’m starting to feel the weight. Two months ago I had nearly no bump and all of a sudden it kind of blew up. It’s huge and I feel huge and heavy and it’s hard to keep myself light and active, but I try. It really bothers me that I can’t workout like usual, so I do what I can… I went from 500 squats a day (at three months), to none due to the bed rest I was put on, and I have now slowly built it up to 300 squats a day. But still I feel like I’m fighting against my own body. Which may be just the thing. It’s just very difficult to adjust to the idea that your body refuses to do some things…  Aside from all that I will finally have a break soon and I’m so looking forward to it!

And since I’m done uploading pictures from trips, here are some pictures of life lately.

Hope you enjoyed.
