My sweet baby boy - Lincoln James

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Well its been a long time since I have updated! I gave birth to my 2nd son on 12-12-12!
I am very happy that he is healthy and such a sweet little boy. He is a week old today and I'm ready to get back into the weight loss game! Due to having a c-section I know the activity has got to weight a bit but I'm hoping I can lose a considerable amount of weight with just diet.

I gained 35lbs this pregnancy and I am down 10.8lbs so far (damn c-section and all this fluid, I'm steadily losing about 2lbs a day though so hoping that will continue like last time). I soooooo want to be back down to my pre-pregnancy weight quicker this time (and I would ultimately would like to lose 10lbs more then that so I have about 35 total to lose), last time I didn't make an effort at all until I was about 6 months so this time I'm going to really focus on my diet and I can't wait to get back into the exercise althought it will be at least another 5 weeks and then I will have to start off slow! I was thinking of doing Jillian Michaels dvd videos - I think its called body revolution and we have an elliptial that I will try to get some extra cardio with...I am not sure WHEN I'm going to fit this in - it will likely have to be during Kason's nap time or after he goes to bed. I know I really have to focus on tracking my food this next few weeks as Christmas will be a hard time to not let food get crazy!!!

anyways here's a pic of my sweet boys! Looking forward to reconnecting with those on their weight loss journeys!

14 weeks

Thursday, June 14, 2012

Well tomorrow is "officially" 14 weeks! Looking at my baby journal I'm considered in the 2nd trimester or 4th month of pregnancy!!! At this point I have gained about 12lbs which is much more then my first pregnancy but I'm hoping that I am back on track now and it will level out!

I am feeling ok as long as I continue taking the diclectin....still mega tired and going to bed at 8pm every night but I swear its the working and chasing a 18 month old that is doing it to me :)

Here's a pic on the belly - definitely showing more then I was last time around!

I have been missing in action from sparkpeople but I'm trying to recommit as I gained more then I would have liked in the first trimester. Time to get back on track and get back to exercising as I'm feeling a bit better! I'm just so happy after our miscarriage to be pregnant again and that things are going well. GROW BABY GROW :)

    Good job and congrats!!!!

I'm starting a fertility diet tomorrow and starting on acupuncture next month...my body is a WRECK since my miscarriage in August (after almost 2 years of TTC). I'm a total mess...gained about 15 pounds after I m/c'd, haven't exercised, eating horribly...nothing helpful for getting pregnant. I'm taking time off for now so i can get my body in order and enjoy being done with 8 years of school, finally.

Anyway, my point is this fertility diet is also for pregnancy...check it out :) I bought "Cooking for Fertility" by Kathryn Simmons Flynn on Amazon for $30.

Good luck! emoticon

Sad news but turning it into a postive

Saturday, January 21, 2012

Well unfortunately we suffered a 2nd miscarriage :( We were expecting a baby August/2012 but at 8 weeks lost the baby. I go through ups and downs but overall just trying to see the positives:

1. I have time to lose these last 10lbs. I am at my pre-pregnancy weight finally but have about 10 to go to get to my ideal weight.
2. a little bit further spacing between our LO's. we were trying for this baby but I think 2 years apart will be a bit more manageable then 18 months!
3. I am back to work and Kason is in daycare....the transition has gone well and getting on a schedule and having a routine has been very good for us!

I am just trusting in god and trying to realize that not everything happens in our time.....
I found a great quote that I really believe in:

Someday everything will all make perfect sense.
So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason…even when you can’t see it yet.

And to leave off - a picture of my little guy - he is perfect and definitely a reason for living life to the fullest and being as healthy as I can be :)

Dear Body, I am sorry.....

Friday, August 05, 2011

Dear Body,

Well here is the nasty, ugly truth. I haven’t been good to you. I have treated you terribly. I haven’t given credit where credit is due. I haven’t fueled you properly, I have taken advantage of you. I have lied, cheated and then lied some more. I have neglected you and above all else not respected you!

It is so sad to me that the one thing I can rely on, the one thing that has supported me all my life…. I have treated so poorly. Body you are truly so amazing and inspiring. You were once my temple. You saw me through years of swimming, basketball, cheerleading, soccer and running. You allowed me to excel and be my very best. Recently, you helped create a life and nurtured it and helped it grow. You housed my special baby boy for over 9 months. You tried your very best but when I couldn’t handle a natural birth you withstood a major surgery and bounced surprisingly quick. I only wish I treated you the way you deserve…. But yet I neglected you and was depressed and disappointed in the outcome of the birth and not being able to breastfeed.

NO LONGER!!!!!! I want to honour you and do you justice. Give you the fuel and the proper nutrients you need. Push your limits and reach fitness goal once again. Treat you like you deserve – like my temple.

No more excuses....JUST DO IT!!

Monday, July 11, 2011

Well the last time I wrote a blog post was a long time ago...3 months almost. And I have lost 0 lbs since then.....I have actually lost NO WEIGHT since I was about 1 month post-baby....and my little guy is coming up on 7 months. NOT A GOOD FEELING. I had been upset about some of the way things went with the birth and not being able to breastfeed and I was making poor choices, exercising a little bit and drinking wine almost every night. No wonder I didn't lose any weight......I should actually be very thankful that I didn't gain a bunch more!!!

But last week its almost like a switch turned on and I just felt different - mind, body and soul. I don't want to go through this life wasting anymore time. Floating through and not enjoying every second. I want to LIVE and enjoy my son and our life and I want to be a good example to him and any future children.....I want to lose the baby weight and then some to get down to my "healthy" weight and then and only then will I start to think about having more kids. If I were to get pregnant now it would just be a vicious cycle and I would be doing my body a dis-service.....so time to get healthy so I can get on with life and enjoy every single second!!

I have been staying in my calorie range, I'm not really following any plan but just trying to stay under 1800 calories every day. So far so good :)

I have been exercising. Walking with my little guy and my dogs or running on the treadmill and doing P90X. I'm not following the program exactly right now, just working in the workouts to make sure I am getting both upper and lower body strengthening.

I have 10 weeks until my SIL's wedding and I want to be fit and fabulous because I am standing up with her. I know its not realistic to expect to be down to my final goal weight as that means 25 lbs to lose but I do think its realistic to get down to my pre-pregnancy weight and be extremely toned and fit! I weighed in this week at 155lbs so my goal is to be 140 by Sept 19th. I CAN DO THIS!!! Its gooooooo time :)

Oh and here is a BEFORE inspiration picture for me.....so unhappy with how I look and feel - and so ready to lose the weight!
