Changing my Ways

Monday, March 03, 2014

Hello Everyone! I know its been a while, and it will probably be a while after this until I get a routine under my belt.

And update on my life recently: I am currently 21 weeks pregnant with a beautiful baby boy! This is exciting to me because I have had infertility issue for a long time. It took me and my husband 7 years to conceive (although part of that time we hadn't been trying, but also not preventing).

I got my First Big Positive in August, but lost the baby at 9 weeks, then immidiately got pregnant again and am doing great! I just love feeling him kick, because its the greatest feeling in the world as a person who only wanted one thing in life, and thats to be a mother!

As of weight loss, I managed to get down to 162lbs, from 181lbs which was my lowest in almost 3 years. Then getting pregnant with this one, I am slowing working my way back up, although I know that's part of the process. HOWEVER, I know because I lost the weight before, I can do it again. It may be hard, but its also achievable! It works if you put your mind to it!

I have decided that once the baby arrives, I would like to try Weight Watchers, as that's the only one I haven't tried, (and just want the experience with it) and incorporate SparkPeople, because lets face it... You guys are the reason I can do this! I love the family that I have grown to know and love, as well as the vast amount of information right at my fingertips. Such motivation is not only helpful, but for me, its needed! Thank you!

Next is my career. Although currently I am still in a pharmacy, I plan to become a personal trainer. :) This excites me because I love the idea of helping others gain health through exercise, which a lot of us greatly lack. So I am currently in an bachelor of exercise science program at my University getting as much knowledge as possible! I love love love it!

Finally, I have entered what I would call the "FiloFax" world. Although I wasn't sure how it would work for me, I purchase a cheaper version of a FiloFax planner, (I got a DayRunner from Staples) because I didn't want to spend the money if I wasn't going to use it. However, this year I decided I really needed to get organized. Especially with the baby coming! So the past 2 days, I have put together and designed the way I want a planner to work for me, and so far I am LOVING it! Its really helping me full my motivation to get everything done. Once I really decide how well its going to go, I plan to upgrade to the real deal, and fork over the money. But it will be a while. :)

Well Lady's and Gentlemen,
Until Next Time!

    CONGRATULATIONS on the baby - plenty of time to lose the weight once he is in your life and as long as you are eating healthy and taking care of both YOU and that little boy, you will find it will all come off just fine. Be blessed and count your blessings every day - there is no greater JOY or challenge than having a new life entrusted to your care.
