Happy Tuesday everyone! How is your week???? Wanted to start out with an awesome pic of Jenny Lynnn...still love that girl! Are you having a great start to your week? I am!! I LOVE starting my week right....that way I never feel behind on my eating or working out and I get a little wiggle room on the weekend! Woot!

I had my doc appointment this morning....I basically go every four weeks until 36 weeks. My doc said I was doing great and the little bambino's heart rate was like a little choo choo train. 160 bpm and the baby was moving a ton while she was taking the heart rate. So cute! I have gained 3lbs total since my first appt. I think part of this is a bit of body comp change...I am sure I have lost some muscle since my lifting has decreased and I am doing lower weight, higher reps. I am really happy that I am gaining weight gradually. My clothes all still fit (although SNUG) and you have all seen my little baby bump.

Oh, and I did a KILLER back/bicep workout on Saturday. I am STILL sore today but just getting over DOMS today. JEEZ!

Here is what I did:

Superset 1, 4 sets:
  • Assisted pull ups - 15 reps
  • Alternating dumbbell curls - 15lbs, 15 reps each arm
  • Abs on weight bench - lifting legs into air (not sure the name for that one) - 15 reps

Superset 2, 4 sets:
  • Reverse pull-ups underneath the squat rack - 15 reps
  • Straight bar bi-cep curls - 15 reps
  • Ball pass abs - 15 reps

Superset 3, 4 sets:
  • Seated machine rows - 90bs, 15 reps
  • Bicep machine curls - 30lbs, 15 reps
  • Planks - 1 minute hold

Superset 4, 4 sets:
  • One arm row - 40lbs, 15 reps
  • Triple 7's bicep curls - 30lbs
  • Captain chair leg lifts - 15 reps


Oh and my new favorite breakfast that I can't live without is: 2 slices of Ezekiel bread with 2 poached eggs and one poached egg white. SO GOOD!

Have a great day everyone!

Looks like a great workout! No wonder you are sore!

And you've probably heard the old wives tale about the heart rate, but if you haven't I won't spoil it because it was right with the sex of both my children!

Keep up the great work!

Awesome! I luv to read about woman who don't use a "baby" as an excuse to eat donuts and french fries for breakfast!

That is close to my favorite breakfast, but I don't do poached I like soft boiled eggs, pretty close though!

A small part of me misses those doctor appointments;-) I won't tell you what the high heart rate is either, but the old wives tale was correct for me too!

Keep up your awesome work!
