I'm a Beachbody Coach~

Sunday, January 22, 2012

Hey guys! I am so excited to tell you and share with you about my new health and wellness endeavour of becoming a beachbody coach. I have done alot of their workouts and tried some of their amazing products, but it was P90x that made me a believer. This really all started from just the love of helping others, but going the next step in branching out by helping more people is really my mission. It really helps me along the way as well.

So, check out my new websites. I will be doing alot of new changes once I have this baby as I become my own client as well! ha

Just about 6 1/2 months~

Thursday, January 19, 2012

Hey guys. I have barely been on here, but I have been doing good. I got the flu over the New Year, but it took a good week to get over it.

The baby is doing great and right on target for weight and growth. Me, on the other hand, feel huge and dressing is just not fun. I feel like all my pants I am constantly pulling up over my belly and I am constantly re-adjusting things. LOL...well I better start getting used to it cuz I have 3 months left.

The last time I weighed myself I was at 14lbs gained. I lost a few pounds from the flu, but I am pretty sure I have gained a few since then. I'm probably at around 16lbs. So not quite sure exactly. My body is really changing. Belly=big. Thighs=thicker. ha. I'm a changin!

I am still trying my best to get in 5-6 days of exercise. I have been challenging myself to do pushups and lunges daily. It seems as though I am atleast doing one of them but don't seem to do both. I actually did a set of 25 pushups off of small med balls and then 15 reps. It hurt my wrists though. I would love to try them off of bigger med balls after pregnancy. Eating is still pretty clean with good weeks and bad weeks. It seems as though I have good and bad weeks not so much days. Just trying though.

Some REALLY BIG NEWS I AM SO FLIPPIN EXCITED ABOUT IS THAT IN AM A MATTER OF A DAY I WILL BE BECOMING A BEACHBODY COACH. I am so excited. I already have about 3 potential clients. When I say coaching, it is basically me guiding and helping people with either nutrition and/or exercise. I have been doing this here and there for years and finally my one friend that is a BB coach said why don't you become one so you can actually keep doing what you are doing but make some side cash. My ultimate goal is, of course, to keep helping people, but to get myself and my husband on shakeology. It is such an amazing product. The only way I make money out of this is if my clients choose to buy a BB product. They just go to my website and purchase it through me. So, I am really excited, because helping others thrills me!

So, here are a few belly shots of me last week.

Santa's 5 month pregnant helper~ OH so festive...

Thursday, December 08, 2011

So, I thought I would throw in my monthly updated belly pics. I still feel like these pics make me look smaller than I am but oh well. I figured tis the season so let's have fun with this! So, I put on the old santa sexy suit (yeah, it still fits!!!!! thank goodness for stretchiness) and thought I would be festive!

So, here are a few shots of my 5 month pregnant belly.

Not much updates. I weigh in tomorrow to see how much weight i have gained. AS of last Tuesday I was up to 11 1/2lbs. Still exercising via walks and ST here and there about 5-6 days a week. Low intensity ofcourse other than my occasional burpees. Eating has TOTALLY got to tighten up. I did baking this past weekend and probably will continue to for the next two weeks, but I have to have more control. OH those darn pb buckeyes.









AND IF I SUCK IN AND REACH MY HANDS UP I STILLLLLLLLL HAVE OBLIQUES!!!!! LOL...CAn't really go around that way!



I thought I would add these two. I thought they came out cool even though I just woke up and look like it. ha



I think this is neat looking down on my belly.

    You look soo cute... I know what you mean about tightening up the diet.. I am right behind you at 15 weeks and as of tuesday I had gained 8 and my trainer is not happy. I try to eat as healthy as I can and I am still working out 6 days a week and lifting 2x... but I decided that no matter what I gain I can't beat myself up over it because for the most part I can't control it! Wish you were closer so we could meet for coffee and talk! miss you and I am trying to be on here more often also!

A Workout I Have Been Enjoying

Wednesday, December 07, 2011

I put this workout together Monday and I really enjoyed it. I wanted to do a circuit that I could tolerate, but was somewhat challenging. This is a 2 circuit workout that incorporates ST moves followed by 30 seconds of cardio. I do each circuit twice without resting and then take a minute break in between circuits. Keep in mind this is something tailored to me as I am pregnant and probably not suitable to most. I really enjoyed it though. Oh, and my burpees are quite modified. I basically do a regular burpee without the pushup and the jump at the top. I was tired afterwards!

Circuit One:

jump rope and jumping jacks for a good 1-2 minutes as a warm up

30 squats

jumping jacks 30 secs.

30 lunges alternating

burpees 30 sec.

single leg dead lifts, no wts. ( I have no balance...ha)

Circuit Two:

jump rope 30 sec.

bicep curls alternating by doing lighter wts.(5 lbs)/high reps one day and higher wts (only like 10lbs.)/lighter reps

jumping jacks 30 sec.

SB decline pushups 15-18

burpees 30 sec.

chest flyes followed immed. by chest presses 15 of each (same repetition with wts. like the bicep curls)

jump rope 30 sec.

lateral raises 13 or so of what I can tolerate (5lbs)

jumping jacks 30 sec.

shoulder presses 15 of 8lbs ( wt. changing same as bicep curls)

Our baby's gender~

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

As of yesterday, it's official we are having a boy! I was happy with whatever the outcome would be. I am just so happy the baby is healthy and I am doing well according to the doctors. The baby is a little 7 ounce healthy boy. I love to think of being the mom of 3 boys.

So, as of now, I am 18 weeks and doing well. Still walking and occassionally jogging when I am up to it. Trying to stick iwth my pushups and lunges. I have gained about 11 1/2 lbs with Thanksgiving and am definitely just starting to wear pregnancy clothes. Let me clarify, that is gained 11 1/2lbs not just over Thanksgiving but the entire pregn. thus far. ha. It was time. I could fit into my pants, but I didn't want to start popping buttons. I totally look pregnant. I am feeling good, but have to pace myself. I am terrible at that. I managed to homeschool my kids and decorate the whole place Monday, but pooped out big time. I just have th personality if I start something I have to finish it! It ALWAYS gets me into trouble being pregnant. ha.

In a few short 2 weeks Ill probably post some 5 month belly shots and these will be quite a difference from the last. I am starting to get a bit of a pregnant butt too! ha

    Ever since Iíve had my son Iíve always pictured being the mom of 3 boys. Iíve imagined how awesome it would be to be the woman of the house of so many boys. Youíll never have to kill a spider or build a book shelf and youíll be the woman that they always use to judge their future wives by. I love male energy. I am excited about having a little girl but part of me wouldnít mind trying again and would love to have at least one more boy! You are so lucky! Your house will never be boring!!!! Congratulations!
