I am feeling great!! Definitely starting to grow more (Jody says my belly looks bigger every day). But holding steady at about 11-12lbs weight gain which I am super happy with! I am almost 27 weeks so even if I gain a pound a week through the end, I will stay under my 30lb max weight. I feel really strong and powerful and LOVE how I feel after a great workout!
This week I have been NAILING it with my workouts! I already have in four cardio sessions and three lifting sessions and I plan on getting in a shoulder/bicep workout tonight followed by 1/2 hour of cardio! And the more women I talk to about how exercise helped them have faster/better deliveries the happier I am that I am having such a healthy pregnancy. My eating is awesome - I am pretty much following the Precision Nutrition principles and trying to stay compliant 90% of the time. My stomach is getting smaller and I can tell certain foods/meals fill me up a lot faster.
I have also been trying to catch up on everyone's blogs and I am slowing getting there! I hope none of you are taking that personally - you know I love you all. Work has finally slowed to a more manageable pace and that makes a HUGE difference for me on all levels - when I get home at night I can actually workout and then blog as opposed to workout and work. :(
Let me know in comments if you guys have any particular questions for me - happy to answer anything and everything!
Have a great weekend you guys! Happy Easter and love you guys!
