Ending BLC 19

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

This was my first BLC and I really wish I would have joined in one earlier. Going into this challenge pregnant, I knew I wouldn't be the biggest "loser" but I was hoping to get back into habits that I had gotten away from and in that, this challenge has been a major success.

After losing 100+ pounds and managing a healthy first pregnancy, I had gotten out of the routine of tracking and really being mindful with my eating. I had gotten out of the habit of checking in on Spark and reaching out when I needed it. I had gotten out of the habits that had helped me to become person who lost 114 pounds and I needed something to get that back.

I have been determined through this pregnancy to be even healthier than I was with my first. I didn't honestly know if that was possible, but I'm living proof that pregnancy does not equal a chance to stop your fitness life. I've ran a 5k (and PRd), my first half marathon and a 10k. At 34 weeks, I'm still doing aerobics and spin class. I do the elliptical every morning after my quiet time to start my day.

Even though as the summer has gone on, I have not been as social with my Pixies as I was before, I thank God for them every day because they are the ones that help to encourage and motivate me to get back into these habits. I can't wait to be a part of BLC 20 and actually be one of those girlies whose name is in lights for being the Biggest Loser...I'll be watch for it!

    I've always admired what you have accomplished. CONGRATS on getting back into the habits that you maybe ignoring a little. I'm sure that you will be a force to be dealt with once the baby gets here ...

    I have told you many times how much I have admired what you have done while pregnant. I think you have worked harder than most of us. I can only imagine how things will be for you post-pregnancy. I know you will rock BLC20 and that the Pixies will benefit. It has been a pleasure being on the same team as you.
