Happy Saturday my peeps! Check out the newest belly pic above. I think I have a little more of a bump....what do you guys think?? :) Still in all my regular clothes...although pants are getting snug. I have a Bella Band waiting in the wings for when I have to start using it with my pants. Oh, and I got SIX items on Ebay for $23. :) It's all about the timing people! And I am feeling awesome still. I feel so terrible for women who have difficult pregnancies. NO FUN! I am so fortunate!
I hope each and every one of you had a wonderful week! Were you compliant with your meals?? Did you feel good about your workouts? Were they intense? Did you commit to what you planned to achieve?
Let me answer those questions for myself...:) Yes! I was compliant with my meals. I have had two off plan meals so I can have two more today and tomorrow to still be at 90% compliant. I prefer going into the weekend with all my off plan meals available but it is what it is! :) My workouts this week were great. I want to lift today and tomorrow so I can have five lifts under my belt. ;) I am feeling so good about how I feel physically (not how I look necessarily) but how I feel. And it is awesome! My energy is high...workouts feel great. Life is good.
I didn't have a good with with class instructors however....we had some pretty bad classes at the new gym. I like an instructor with hutspa (sp??) and spunk - energy and fire! And what we have been getting is LOW intensity, boring, no spunk. Blah. If I wasn't knocked up I would get certified to teach some of those classes. Man I would have fun. And Les Mills, the group that designs Body Pump, actually has a brochure outlining how to do a Body Pump workout while preggers. Pretty cool.
Will do a weekly recap tomorrow for you guys.
I have to give two shout outs:
- For those of you who recently experienced a loss.....I am so sorry you lost someone close to you....my prayers and thoughts are with you. Cherishing those people close to you in life and being grateful for all the things we have make those losses less painful and I wish each of you relief from your pain and sadness.
- I had an "anonymous" person come out of the closet to me who has been following my blog for a long time. But it meant SO incredibly much to me to know the she has been following my journey. She is in AMAZING shape. Like AMAZING. She could get on the figure stage tomorrow and KILL it. Truly. Anyway, she sent me a long email and we have been emailing back and forth and not only do I have a loyal blog follower, I have a new friend! Thank you for being a part of my blog community and sharing so much about yourself in the process! :)
