Last 7 White Squares....CHALLENGE!

Friday, October 24, 2014

i had no plans to really try to hard the rest of this month b/c i basically already screwed it up. i reviewed my october goals and it pretty much seemed pointless to bother....but then a friend of mine posted a challenge blog. a nice wake up call to look at the bigger picture of things and made me realize that i can't let this last stage in my pregnancy keep me from making better choices. things might be harder to do but i'm still very capable of so much (using my brain would be one of them,lol) !!

i have accepted her challenge for the next 7 day so this is what i'll be doing...

Post a daily blog that includes.....
1. that i've done at least 10 mins of exercise
2. pictures of food i ate for the entire day choosing healthy foods and keeping it all under my daily calorie intake limit of 2000

def check out her blog and i challenge all my friends as well!! lets make the rest of this month count!!

THANKS APRIL_V_2!! www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo

29 Weeks Pregnant....Tired!

Monday, October 13, 2014

i just love getting these weekly updates on my pregnancy (emails). i tell ya what they hit the nose on the head every time! good to know i'm not losing it and that my body really is going through a lot. the part about still exercising...umm..yeah..i need to get on that. the aches and pains just keep me from getting up. blah! n e who..just wanted to share ;)

29 Weeks Pregnant: Your Body

If you’ve made it to this point without so much as a twinge, you’re a lucky, healthy lady! But for many that are 29 weeks pregnant, aches and pains may become, well, a real pain as your uterus grows and the joints of the pelvis loosen in prep for delivery. Back pain is especially common at this stage of pregnancy. Try not to stop exercising (it will keep you strong!) and be conscious of your posture -- slouching when you sit or stand can exacerbate back issues. Core strengthening exercises, which tone your abs and back -- tightening your entire midsection like a corset -- can also work minor miracles. Since many experts recommend avoiding exercises where you have to lie on your back at this point, talk to your doctor or another health care pro about what moves are appropriate for you to do.

You take good care, beautiful mama, & I hope you get some good rests! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great advice. This is actually during the time in my first pregnancy that I sort of stopped working out. Dont let that happen! Keep going strong all through your pregnancy! That is what I intend to do!

One Extreme To Another

Wednesday, October 08, 2014

i found myself waking up the other day just so sore! not sick but arms, legs, back...all over i was done for. it hurt to just try and put on a pair of pants, lol. its not that i had pushed any harder in my workouts so what was causing the exhaustion?

that brings me to a rest day....one thing leads to another and it's like i'm not doing anything i SHOULD be doing at all. whhhhaaat?? why? b/c i was sore?

what is ts in us that causes us to go from all gung ho to eh..whatever. one extreme to another!

what i find even more amusing about the whole thing is this all happens after i post my blog "no matter what"...lol. ironic...dont cha think?

hoping to work out whatever kinks these are so i can move on to BETTER THINGS!

    thanks everyone! i know that being pregnant and getting to the end of the road is def starting to kick me in the butt. i'm sure this is a big part of my lack in motivation so i'm going to try hard to at least stick to the healthy eating and take the exercising a little less serious. i know not all is lost so i'm hoping to finish this month off meeting all the goals i had originally set. i know i'm dealing with physical issues but i know a lot of this is in my head too.

i got this!

love u all!! xoxo

    We have three instructors in the class that I take. One of the instructors is about 4-5 months pregnant. She used to be able to kick box and really kick butt but now she gets sore easy, she tires out easier, she really hates working out and before she loved it! Maybe the chemicals in your body or hormones and body composition due to your pregnancy is causing it. It takes a lot of energy to nurture and sustain life so when you take that energy away from that process and apply it to your legs, arms and the like, maybe the affects are different now.

I don't know just putting it out there as a possibility. Maybe not workout so extensive or demanding. Just to get cardio and a few exercises so your muscles don't petrify but also don't fatigue overmuch. What do you think?

No Matter What...

Friday, October 03, 2014

no matter what....i will workout!

there is no space to small for a workout..right? i mean, come on...jail birds workout in their cells so is there really no space too small?? lol..well, here is my small space....

the distracting halloween decoration that keeps messing with me out of the corner of my eye...

shoes that I can't seem to part with...can always count on good ol duct tape....

good smellin food i got to stare at (and smell) while dancin it up, lol...

my little note of motivation (that focal point)...

and me getting the job done....

sometimes there will be distractions....sometimes we don't have money for gyms or equipment or decent workout clothes...but where there is a will there is a way. dont let the little things keep u from being the best u!!

no matter what...workout!

    I LOVE THIS! When I saw those shoes. I started to think about my husband when his work boots came unglued and he said. Get me some monkey glue fast. LOL he can't part with them. I think he has used monkey glue on them 6 times in the past few years, but now he's ready to part with them. emoticon

    Man, nothing like being kicked when you're down. Bummer that you're sick. It's hard enough to stay on track but then to have things like being sick and no success with job hunting to make it even tougher. It sucks that we live in a world that now takes two incomes to survive.

October will be the best month ever! Be a hero and stay strong and dedicated!!
