A New Mission

Its been awhile since I have blogged. The newest and latest update from me is:

Don't let the pink fool you, we don't know what we are having yet. I'm due December 21st. Honestly, what has caused me to write this blog is the disappointment I have about my health during this pregnancy. When I lost all my weight I had visions of being one of those cute pregnant ladies. You know all belly and adorable? Instead, I have put most of my weight back on, ok not most but a lot, and it is the opposite of what I thought I would like this time around. I realize that it isn't about what I LOOK like, but for me, it kinda is. I mean it is more than that, its the disappointment in myself that I have allowed the weight to come back. I am pretty mad at myself for that. I am 12 weeks. I have plenty of time to begin doing something about it. I am not talking about calorie restricting diet, obviously. But I need to start moving and doing pregnancy safe workouts and getting back to my healthy diet. It is what is best for me and the baby. I know I wont drop a lot of weight, but I will have the foundation in place for after the baby is born so that I can lose weight again. I want to get back to where I was, maybe even a little more. I miss how good I felt. How much easier it was to breathe or climb stairs. I am going to start walking again. Just start over. I want to run again and not be miserable. So my goal for next year is to get back to running shape. With ACTUAL training this time. I would like to start strength training again. Maybe I will do that 3 days a week and then walk whenever I feel like it. Or if I don't want too do ST then I walk. SOMETHING. Its the best for me and the baby. Oh and I should probably stop indulging in my pizza cravings. LOL.

 I think that is all for now. I took you on my journey of training for Goofy. Now I will take you on Mission: Healthy Pregnancy. This will be just as challenging. Again, I have quite the prize at the end of the journey!

Until Next Time, Run On and Be Happy!
