I am very excited to report, that I am at the lowest I've been since I was pregnant with Shane... Probably about 4 months pregnant with him actually!
I weighed 187 when I found out I was pregnant with Shane, and began to gain weight quickly with him. Today I am 206! Whoo hoo. That's a total loss of 38 pounds since last July! Now to me that is not so good since I wanted to be at my goal weight by 8/28/10, (my birthday). BUT I am extremely happy that I am 38 pounds lighter, and in much better physical shape!
I am dying to swim. I have a few days left of my gym pass, then that's it. I itch to get in the water!! I want to ride my bike too! I miss it! But Davey has been working late, and when I can go to the gym I have nausea. It is very frustrating to go from training hard for my tri, working out twice a day some days, to now hardly at all because I am fatigued and sick feeling.
I fear that this trimester will put me into bad habits of not working out! In my mind and body I can't wait to workout! I know I can now, but honestly, I am just lucky if I get one chore done a day and manage to care for the boys. The day varies, from sick, to hungry and wanting to cook. So I have been cooking more, which is great! I cooked every dinner already pretty much, but now I am expanding my cooking trying to create exactly what I want.
Only 3 more weeks in this trimester! Yay!!
I am already planning and excited about my next triathlon after the baby comes. "Failure to plan is planning to fail." is what our Pastor always says. Sometimes though I feel like I rather quote the brilliant movie "Robots" when one of them say, "Never try never fail." Ha! Wisdom? No. I'll stick with planning!
I won't let myself gain wait again with this pregnancy. All that hard work to take off those 38 (and counting) pounds? No thanks.
I am being conscience about what I eat. I am rarely hungry, so that helps. I wonder if I can lose 7 more pounds and get below 200! I hope so and I will try! But I am also going to make my growing baby #1. Can't wait to meet him/her!
We find out the gender 8/20/10! I am not sure with this one.. with the boys I just knew they were boys. In a way I think it's a boy because I have never had a girl, but I hope for a girl. BUT I will be happy with whatever God blesses us with! I want mostly boys and one girl.
Well good night!
