I'm a mom of a beautiful, brilliant, little girl, who is my world and I recently married the love of my life :) Now just looking to lose the last of those 'newlywed pounds' and get back on track! We are trying for our second child and I am so excited but I have that constant worry in the back of my mind about losing track of my fitness goals and gaining to much weight again during the pregnancy. So far this site has been great for support and keeping me motivated so that worry is becoming less and less everyday!

Before you were conceived I wanted you
Before you were born I loved you
Before you were here an hour I would die for you

Update* I am now pregnant! We are due Nov 28 and are so excited! I am still tracking calories and working out everyday. I am so excited to go through all the highs (and lows) of pregnancy again, give my husband another child and make Dezzy a big sister!

    It does suck when you don't see results. I'm trying to remind myself just to keep going and that my body is getting healthier even if it doesn't "look" it to me. I am just so used to watching the weight melt off as soon as I got my butt in gear that seeing everything stay the same no matter what I do really sucks. I totally understand!!

    Arianna does great with letting me get in my cardio, not so much on the strength. I put her in the stroller and take her with me. I lock the front wheels of my Graco stroller and it has been working well for me to jog since I am on a road that is very flat and clean (not many rocks). I was doing pretty good with my strength but lately she has not been giving me the time or I haven't been taking advantage of the time she does give to do it. :(

    I hate it when she cluster feeds. I always feel like "you're hungry AGAIN?!?" I saw your post on one of the threads about how now your supply is up. The engorgement that comes afterwards also sucks. It is like she stops and goes "wait, I didn't expect it to have that much!" and you are left with really full breasts!

    I think you should try out a 5K. I'm going to set 5K goals for myself. I was never a runner but loved how it made me feel when I started it in the process of losing weight before getting pregnant. I am doing a 5K race this Saturday to kinda give myself a measurement to go from.

    I am amazed at your ability to fit in intense workouts with cardio and strength and everything with not only Paige but also Dezzy! There is this woman who I call "perfect abs lady" who walks the same route I do in the morning. I first saw her (have never actually introduced myself hence the name) when her son was about 2 months old. She was out jogging with him in the stroller in a sports bra and spandex pants. She had perfect abs already! She has since taken her son every day for a walk. He is now over three and just hangs out in the stroller because it is a part of his every day life. I saw her on one of my first walks after having Arianna and she said it was awesome that I was out walking already. I told her that she inspired me because she showed that everyone who said you can't exercise with a baby were wrong; you can do it.

    You are my Spark inspiration to do the same! You kept going through the pregnancy and you are now balancing a toddler and a newborn. Therefore when I have another baby I can just tell myself, "Michelle did it! I can do it!" Thanks for the inspiration!

    P.S. And you are doing all of that in freezing cold weather!!! with bears around!! and snow!!

    That's awesome that you were able to get in a work out the past couple days. I have done little to nothing. I am kinda in a crappy place right now. I love being a new mom (mom to a new kid I guess) again but between virtually everyone in the house having battled sickness/the thrush/mastitis/baby now spitting up and gassy/daughter developing a yeast infection that is proving tough to cure - well, you get it. I don't feel like doing much and I am slowly drowning in housework. Hubby tries to wake up with me to help but there's only so much he can do. He can't nurse the baby, he can't pump the extra milk, he can't put the nystatin on my nipples after feedings. You get the picture. I feel like I have plenty of 'help' but not much assistance. . . .
