Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I don't remember where I recently read that, but it's stuck with me for the past few weeks so it seemed appropriate as I reevaluate my goals for the year. My goal is to continue to lose the baby weight from my first pregnancy, but also to improve my overall health and fitness, and for vanity purposes, I really want to look hot and stop dressing to hide my body!
1. Get back to my prepreggo weight.
2. Run 1/2 marathon September 15th!
3. Set a healthy lifestyle example for my sons. While mommy runs on the treadmill, he runs back forth in the room so he can run with mommy!
5. Watch my calorie intake and eat mainly healthy whole foods to fuel my body, mind, and soul!
At least 30 minutes of cardio four days a week, strength training 3 days a week, and keeping my calories within my spark recommended ranges.
Wife and mommy!

Well hello stranger! It was a wonderful surprise to have heard from you! I hope you and the family had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
I am actually 32 weeks today, yay! If I hadn't already said that this was my last pregnancy, I would be saying it by now, LOL! It's not been terrible by any means, I really shouldn't complain, but I'm just getting too old for this! The baby is much lower than past pregnancies, which the dr. said is because of all my pregnancies. This is technically my 5th, as I had 1 miscarriage. So I have more pressure and more hip pain this time around. Otherwise, it's mostly been my emotions, which have been WAY out of whack.
I could have done better with my weight, but it's not horrible either. I think I will fall in the normal range of weight gain - for someone not already overweight. I still had a good 15 - 20 lbs to get to my goal weight. I'll get there...next year in fact!
So enough rambling about me. How are you? How is the weight loss coming along? How are the kiddos? Please update me when you have time! I have to friend add you back...I just cleaned up on Monday, and thought, well, if Gretta comes back, I'll hear from her! So glad I did!!
TGIF! Have a wonderful weekend!

Hm, that is interesting about your treatment. I kind of feel like my doctor is just prescribing the default treatment for me because he said all that without doing any tests except for a manual exam and listening to my history. No ultrasound or anything. If you don't mind me asking, what weight were you at when you conceived? And 60 carbs, wow, I don't think I could do that! :/ I get cranky.
