I am 23 weeks pregnant today....
with a baby BOY!!
We are very excited to have one of each :)
So far I have gained 11 lbs. which according to the charts is right on track for my weight gain goal of 25-30 lbs.
With Baby A I had gained 42 lbs. which was definitely over what was necessary. I ate healthy, but not as healthy as I do now, and I didn't really work out all that much....just yoga and light weights here and there.

This time I have kept up with regular workouts. I took a month off when we moved ( our move was hectic and crazy and there is STILL work being done on the house).
My workouts consist of weight training, cardio, and yoga! I have been managing to do all 3. My current workout routine is 5-6 days a week, with either Saturday or Sunday off....and sometimes we go for long walks on those days!
I feel best when I am active.
( a couple of this weeks workouts)
|5 min treadmill warm up/5 min cool down, 40 min weight lifting, |
10 min stretching. Did lateral
band walking to help with core strength. Yoga in the evening.
|1.22 mile jog during day. yoga in the evening.|
Since starting back after the move I have experience a lot of soreness from the weight training, but it was totally expected despite having trained before. Any time I take a break I am always sore for a little while.
I have been doing well with school! I should finish up in August! I am very excited. I so far have completed my personal training certification and 2 other certifications, I now have 2 certifications and 1 final project left before I achieve the Master Personal Fitnesss Trainer title. I am very excited about this.
After that I will take a break for Baby B to be born and for bonding time.
Then I will hit the books for nutrition and I am thinking fitness chef too!
I have goals of a Masters degree in sight as well. I am hoping to complete all of this very quickly :)

It feels good to be following my passion. What are you passionate about? What are you doing to pursue your passion?
I personally wish I had pursued education for my passion about 5 years or so ago, but I wasn't mentally ready then for all that I decided to take on now.
It is interesting juggling school, pregnancy, a move, and a 2 1/2 year old! In addition Hubby works and is in school too, so we both have a lot on our plate!
We wouldn't have it any other way though. Our lives are full and happy.
Oh and one thing I am super excited about....
I made tortillas successfully for the first time yesterday!
Have you tried anything new lately?
I would love to hear from you.
