Some of you may know that I've been doing some hip, butt and thigh exercises because my pants were tight in that area and yet not in the belly. Well...I tried on all the non-jean pants I had. I knew that one of the tan and one brown pair, I could barely walk or sit in due to this issue. Well, all 3 tan pairs and the brown pair fit perfectly! Not tight at all!

Well, at least with my weight gain. LOL
So, I have been tracking my weight gain for this pregnancy of course and so far it's been good. I'm actually at 224lbs so that's 1 lb loss from last week which is good since I wanted to be at 223lbs for this month and I'm already one week in it. I'm hoping to be at 226lbs at 28 weeks and today I'm 25 so 3 more weeks to go!
Now, I'm am planning on working out more. My team "The Challenge" is starting a 4 week boot camp on the 1st (sign ups are around, let me know if you want to take part!) and last time I lost 10lbs while doing it. I'm not hoping to lose 10lbs but it would be nice to have it to keep my weight steady. Plus it's cardio and body toning. I'm hoping I end up with thighs and arms of steel. LOL Right now I only do some strength training in my hips, butt and thighs area. I'm gonna be posting those results by next Sunday, figure I give myself another week to see something right.
Well, of course this is just an update, hopefully I'll have some awe inspiring blogs soon!

I'm trying to get back into full swing of things. Between pain from the winter, seasonal depression, having dh back home and adjusting, the holidays and getting pregnant, I've been here but feel like I've been just floating around. I'm sure my sparks buddies have noticed it and so have my team mates.
But I'm making a turn around, pregnant or not!
Right now I'm looking at my food and realizing I'm doing pretty darn good with it. My original spark plan to lose 2lbs a week had me set at 1200-1550 cals a day. With being pregnant I've increased that to add in the about 300 calories that I need during pregnancy. Right now I'm just short of those 300 cals (by like 100 cals or so) but will increase them in the last trimester when the baby will be putting on weight and all.
I've been staying in range, eating high protein, lot's of fruits and veggies and getting in my carbs while also keeping my sodium low (except yesterday, I was just off all day long).
I'm enjoying my food, my snacks, my cravings and I'm not kicking my own rear for giving into them. I'm just happy that my weight is staying steady and the baby is staying healthy.
