February 2015: At this point I have two girlies, a 3yo and a 13mo old. I haven't been exercising. Period. Not, I haven't been exercising regularly, I just haven't been. I still have 10lbs of baby weight I'd like to lose (from the second pregnancy, then I have the four I never lost from the first, lol). But more importantly, I FEEL yucky. I don't want to get up and go, I don't want to play with the kids and push them on their cars around the house. I feel tired and BLAH. So I kicking my butt back into gear. I'm following the ChaLean Extreme program again and on day 5 of the month, I've hit all 5 goals :). Full steam ahead!

Update: DD #2 arrived 12/31/13, just shy of being a new year's baby. We're both doing well, her sister is adjusting wonderfully and I've learned with the Spark my DH got me for Christmas that I can get in about a mile a day just chasing the two yo and going back and forth changing diapers, trying to potty-train, etc. ;)!

Wow; it's been forever since I've updated my page!

November 2013: Currently I'm just tracking nutrition as Baby #2 should make her appearance in a relatively short time and I am unable to exercise anymore due to some issues.

My biggest concern is how in the world am I going to find time to exercise with both a newborn AND a two-year-old??? It was hard enough with the first one! Not to mention throwing in the two jobs, lol.

The good news...my weight gain has not been as horrible as it was the first time around :D So it should come off a bit quicker once this little one comes. Bad news? Double jogging strollers are EXPENSIVE; looks like my running days are over for awhile.

My Program:
Well, no program anymore, lol. Grabbing exercise in 20minute increments when the baby is napping, and taking her for walks on nice days, hiking with her in a baby carrier, and once she can sit up a bit better, we'll get a jogging stroller.
I'd love to do some more 5K's, then work my way up to that 1/2 marathon I had been talking about before I injured my hip in 2010.

    Hi SUPERGIRL-SUPERMOM
    I AM BACK. I bought a Spark tracker about a week ago and I am getting motivated again. I have maintained my weight around 240-245 for the last 5 years. My health is good. How are you doing and how is your child? Your Spark friend, emoticon Bob

    Hi Heather!!!! I just got your message...CONGRATULATIONS on the birth of your baby!

    I have been absent too...I was feeling that I needed to get back on track healthwise.. I've been having trouble sleeping and that's been leading to not so healthy food choices...OoI also took a break from exercise due to an injury, but I'm getting it in, little by little!

    I just saw lil' Ashley's pics...she is sooo precious. What a beautiful baby.

    I am so excited to rekindle our Sparkfriendship!
    Thanks so much for your sparkmail!

    Congratulations!!! I didn't even know... I've been MIA for so long. I am the last person to ask about fitting in workouts. It took me FOREVER to figure that out! He didn't start sleeping really well and consistently until 14 months, so it was a lot of sporadic runs with the jogging stroller or long walks on the weekends. My husband and I recently started getting up at 5:15am to work out. I have never in my life been a morning workout person, but it's the only place we can fit it in. We do videos in our basement (P90X) while the baby sleeps. I just could not get to this point while he wasn't sleeping well. I needed all I could get of my own sleep. Give yourself time and do what you can, when you can... but don't worry about it too much. Your baby is still so small and everything will come together down the road. Hang in there! Congrats again!
