This pregnancy thing is no joke!! Haaa, there is so much to learn. I joined Babyfit.com, but it is nowhere near as active as here. I asked a quesion on the message boards, no response. I posted a blog, not comments. It's a little sad over there! But it is where I need to be for now, It is the right place to track my nutrition. Gonna get busy now, trying for atleast 30 treadmill mins/day. I know the stronger I am the better this whole process will be. I've been having pain in my lower abdomen that feel like cramps, they said that was normal..........still not comfortable. I am doing more stretching though, and that is supposed to really help with those pains.
I hope you lovely people are having a great week.

I am pretty much in shock still. Starting my third day of knowing that I am pregnant. I really had ruled this option out for me years ago. I must admit the timing is rather odd, since we don't have any health insurance and my hubby is still out of work!!! Don't quite know what God is trying to tell me.............but I'm excited. I told my husband a few months ago that if we EVER got pregnant, that we would have to take it as a sign from God that that was the perfect plan. I mean 8 years is quite a long time to not use protection and not get pregnant. So, yeah, I'm walking on cloud 9. Keeping my exercise going, got a good 35 min walk in last night, if felt great. Doing lots of crunches on the ball, I want my stomach muscles to be as strong as possible before the birth. Also doing reverse crunches for my back, don't know how long I will be able to do those before the belly gets too big, but I also want my back to be strong and healthy. I joined Babyfit.com, the SP related site for pregnancy. I'm pretty excited to get learning as much as possible.
Spent yesterday getting plugged into the Medi-Cal circuit. I'm kind of embarrassed that I have to use that, but I just don't have a choice. I wish I did, but we are barely surviving as it is, I just can't afford healthcare on my own right now. Of course my husband is racking his brain trying to apply for any and every job available.............in our town even Dominos Pizza wants you to be bilingual!!! Anyhow, I know that everything will work out the way it is supposed to. I plan on staying positive and thinking happy thoughts as much as possible because I want my baby to have a happy, healthy home inside this belly. If I stress out, well, I just don't want to do that. So, smilles, and rainbows for now..............atleast that's my plan!!!
I am really excited to be sharing this adventure with you guys. I truly believe that SP is the reason I am pregnant right now. This is a dream I never, ever imagined would come true for me! I love you guys, and I love SP!!!!

Yeah, I'm pregnant! Don't know how. Never have been, EVER. Been with my husband 8 years, not even a slight hint at pregnancy.........until now!! So, yeah, think it might be the exercising and eating better????? I'm really in shock still, but so very excited, jubilant, nervous, and overall just feeling blessed!!! Just wanted to share my bit of excitement with you all. Oh and any andvice you might have for me I'd LOVE it!!! I'm going to pic my mom and SIL's brains, but the more advice, the better, especially nutrition related.
I'm so excited to be sharing this part of my life with you guys!!! I think SP plays a role in why this is happening for me now. I truly think the positive outlook on life and the healthier actions are the reason I am sitting here, beaming, inside and out!!
Love you guys!!

Today is my first day of tracking my goals on my calendar............got the idea from the wonderful Miss Mojo. I got a heart (met my calorie intake goal) and a star (met my calories burned goal). I am excited to see the progress on my calender day to day......think it will be a great visual motivator.
Read somewhere that in Eastern countries they have a saying..........and the gist of it is, eat until you are not hungry anymore, but not until full. I realized this is a pretty crucial bit of advice for me to follow. I have to admit, when I eat at the higher end of my calorie range, I can eat pretty decent sized meals, and still have the "finish what's on my plate" mentality. If I know I have the calories left to eat, I usually just eat them, even when I am not really needing to, because I'm not hungry anymore. I've been overeating, and emotionally eating for so very long, it really takes immense focus to change these 32 years old habits. But like a client told me the other day, it took me awhile to get here, I really need to be patient, and see that I'm not going to magically wake up tomorrow in the body I'm dreaming of. But, if I keep baby stepping it, one day, I definitely will. And by that time, I will have all the tools in my basket that I need to mantain that weight.
I hope you are all learning and growing in your personal journeys. It really is a dance of life, sometimes it's a tap dance, others a box step.............sometimes fast, other times slow. But the music goes on, and so we keep the beat, keep the pace and waltz right into the life we've dreamt of for oh so many years.

Hmmmmmsies. Welps. Yup. It's Tuesday. Not having quite as spendid of a start to my week as I did last week. Still happy about surpassing 500 fit mins this month. Lets me know I am slowly creeping back into the saddle again. Work was cool today. Had a guy tell me that he only asks women on dates so that they will in turn shave his back for him after a few good meals out!! Haa, I've NEVER heard that before, and I thought I'd heard it all!
My sister seems to be doing better. She was hospitalized and medicated and has called my mom multiple times to let her know that she is OK, and is sorry for all she has put her through. I am glad to know that she seems to finally realize that she has a real problem, and seems to, atleast momentarily, not be blaming all of us for her unbalanced recent actions. My hubby is finishing up his gaurd card classes and should be testing by next week sometime. Once he gets the card he can apply to any security gaurd jobs nearby........not the most high paying or glamorous job, but for now, a job is a job. He seems motivated about it all, which makes me happy.
My 32nd birthday is on Sunday...........yeah, Superbowl Sunday. Looks like we are going to mom's for turkey dinner, and she doesn't have cable, so hopefully I'll miss it. Although I did hear that there was a Ferris Bueller spoof commercial reenacting parts of the film with Mattew Broderick in it, but not really worth watching the whole stinking game for.....esp. not on my special day.
God is good. I did a strict budget analysis this month, figuring up exactly per day what I have to make in order to pay all of our bills (I work commission), and I've either hit or surpassed my goal everyday this month................so YES, we have been able to eat! Wooo Hooooo!!! Excited for hubby boy to get back to work, but I am quite happy that I've been able to keep us afloat on my own. When I lived in So Cal I made bank.............serious bank. But since we've moved to Nor Cal the money flow just hasn't been the same. But, surviving is good, surviving is great, can't complain about it one bit.
Subscibed to a great newsletter from Food Matters. Hippichick suggested it, and it is quite informative and eye opening. I highly recommend taking a look at it if you have a free minute.(You can find the link on her blog from today.)
Looking forward to taking the day after my b-day off. Used to have every Sunday/Monday off, but for now I've been pulling the 6 day work week, kinda miss my home time. Think we might go play Bingo Monday night for my special day. Haven't played in about 10 years, and found out it is only seven bucks to play at the Elks Lodge near my work. I won $250 the last time I played, so I'm daydreaming that I'll get lucky again!!
Hope the begining of your week is going well. Love you guys........I truly do.
