Hey guys! Man, I have not been around. I have been really busy for the obvious reasons tending to a newborn, finishing up homeschooling and working with people on their health and fitness goals (I'm an independent Beachbody Coach for some of you who do not know).
Everything has been great...for the most part. ha. I am pleasantly happy that i only have about 7lbs to lose before hitting pre-pregnancy weight. I did gain 2lbs back as I was doing a bit of some mindless eating staying awake so late at night!
I am super pumped though as I started P90x again this week! It is surprisingly going well. I am SORE, but I would be a lot more sore if I wasn't drinking Results and Recovery drink to help with the DOMS! So, I am so pumped to pound out these next 90 days, but enjoy the transforming process as I go along.
Masen is doing great. He is a GREAT baby. A bit of a surprise since my other two as babies got up 2-3 times a night. This little guy gets up once and just recently (this week) has allowed me to sleep til 5 a.m. which is great. I put him back to bed after a feeding and get my workout in! i am holding off on Ab Ripper X for about a week since I am recovering from a c-section. I want to be smart about this!
Masen was born a week early at 8lbs 10 ounces. Everything went very smoothly, but i did hemorrhage about 6 hours after the c-section/delivery. They had to hold unbelievable pressure on my fresh incision 3 times for atleast 30 minutes to get the bleeding to stop. They were just about to bring me back to the OR, but thankfully the Lord prevailed and everything worked out. It made for quite a long recovery...well, much longer than my other two!
All in all, I am doing very well. Just trying to balance life, but could definitely use some 'hunny' time...DATE! ha. We will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary in about 2 weeks and I HOPE for a quick date!
Well, I am not sure i will be able to post pics of Masen from our computer so I will come back a bit later and post from my laptop if that is the case!
I hope you are all doing well and pushing to meet your goals!
Okay so I found a FEW, so I will post some updated ones later!

Wow I can't believe i will be 32 weeks in 2 days! It's crazy. I am really tailoring back on my exercise. I can't do my challenge group exercises anymore, but I'm mostly just walking!
My friend is having a baby shower for me this weekend which will be nice! Hoping for ALL diapers and wipes, ha.
Beachbody coaching is going WONDERFULLY! I am having a Shake and Share event next weekend and just hoping my body will cooperate!
So I thought I would add a current belly shot! Oy, my body is not made to carry this weight I swear.
And for those of you who don't know we are having our 3rd boy!
Hope you are all doing well!

Hey guys! I just wanted to encourage you all to NEVER stop setting goals. A little experience to share with you and to encourage you. At the beginning of January I set out to really strive to get prove to myself that even pregnant I can set high standards for myself and get toned. I did not have a focus of losing weight, but a focus to PUSH and try to set a realistic standard and try to tone.
So these were my goals:
Start each day with a glass of water; aim for 14cups a day. I probably averaged about 12 cups and most of the time I did start the day with water.
Lose 1/2in. off my thighs and arms. I lost 1/2 inch off my thighs, but my arms stayed the same. I aimed to do 25 real pushups a day and lunges. I will say that I got in 25-50 real pushups about 4 -5 days a week and neglected the lunges, but kept up with my walks and ST about 2 times a week. Prenatal style here people so nothing intense.
Aiming to eat 90-95% clean. I did pretty well during the week but the weekends were my downfall. I did gain about 2 1/2 lbs over the month, but I am very happy with that being pregnant. I was hoping to NOT gain mroe than a 1/2lb. each week. So I pretty well stuck to that.
Getting in 8 hours of sleep. I am terrible with this one, but I averaged about 7 hours and I DON'T take naps. Too much in my day to do that.
INcreasing my vegetable intake to 3 times a day. I averaged 2 sometimes 3, but still need to focus more on that. That is just veggies not fruit.
So, I just wanted to share with you to never stop setting those goals as I am proof that even a pregnant woman almost 7 months pregnant can do it!
The best inspiration is not to outdo OTHERS, but to outdo YOURSELF.!

Hi all! I know that I have shared with you about becoming a beachbody coach, which I am thrilled about. I have already been receiving some questions about what the difference is between P90x and P90x2. I could sit here and explain it all, but I think this will link will do a better job of it personally handed to you by Tony Horton himself. Let me know if you have any questions. Also, check out my website if you are looking for a coach or products from beachbody. Thanks!
