It is nice,quiet and RELAXING here right now so I thought I would write some!

I am feeling LOTS of motivation and excitement about really cracking down on eating and working out. I have been doing REALLY good but I am still fighting sickness so that makes it hard at times.

I have a brand new supply of groceries after going shopping yesterday, AND my house was cleaned SPOTLESS from top to bottom by my amazing dh and boys when I got home!

So I am just feeling VERY motivated to get myself back into gear in all areas! Keeping my house clean,keeping on our schedule,school,exercise and just LIFE. Being sick sure has a way of sucking the life out of you! LOL

I will be 11 weeks on Wednesday!!!! It won't be long until Lord willing,we can hear this sweet baby's heartbeat!!!!!!

So along with my motivation, my love of PLANNING is coming back LOL. I am getting my plan fresh in my head again!

Body brushing- I have slacked off with this since I have been sick but I am starting up again! 3-4 times a weeks is my goal,followed by an olive oil rubdown.

Water/tea- I am finding that I can get lots of water down without feeling sick if it is ICE water and ESPECIALLY if it has fresh lemon squirted in! I really want to start drinking my nettle/raspberry/mint/green tea and I want to add my chlorophyll into it,making a nice green and minty drink.Over ice? I don't think it will be bad at all! 1 qt a day of the tea/chlorophyll + 3 quarts of water. I am still nursing so I need to drink lots.

Exercise- Wonderful exercise!!!!! :):)

MON- AM-Long and Lean standing work plus stretching.(30 min) PM-  15 min dance/cardio.
TUE- AM- Baby Bells pregnancy workout (40 min) PM- 15 min dance/cardio.
WED- AM-Long and Lean floor work plus stretching.(30 min) PM- 15 min dance/cardio.
THUR- 45 min to 1 hour of  whatever the girls and I decided to do.
FRI- 45 min-1 hour of whatever the girls and I decide to do.

Food- Trim Healthy Mama style!!

Sleep-Always trying to get more!!!!! LOL

I want to take another picture tomorrow for my sidebar and I am excited to see if I can tell a difference! :) The last picture I took I was 36 lbs down and now I am 45.

Well I guess that's it! I hope everyone had a good weekend!

Measurements ! (10 weeks!)

I am 10 weeks and thought it was about time that I get my measurements recorded as that is the main way I will be keeping track of my fat loss throughout this pregnancy! Once I start gaining baby weight,the scales won't be a very good measurement of how much FAT I am losing etc.

First,here are my measurements from the VERY beginning! ( a little over a year ago) It is always fun and motivating to compare!!!!!

Left arm -13 1/4 
Waist (under bra)-35 1/4
Waist (belly button)- 49
Waist/hips (3 inches below belly button)-52
Rear- 49
Right upper thigh-28
Left calf-16
Bust- 42 1/2
Feet together/both upper thighs together-49
Left knee-17 3/4


Left arm- 12 (1 3/4 inches lost!)
Waist (at bra level)- 35
Waist (belly button)- 39 1/2 (9 1/2 inches lost!)
Hips- 43 ( 9 inches lost!)
Rear- 44 (5 inches lost!)
Right upper thigh-25 1/2 (2 1/2 inches lost!)
Left calf-14 3/4 (1 1/4 inches lost!)
Left knee- 15 (1 3/4 inches lost!)
Bust-39 (3 1/2 inches lost!)
Forearms- 10 

That is a total of 34 1/4 inches ! I have no idea if I should double the thigh,arm,knee etc. measurements since I lost that many inches from EACH but in this figure I didn't double it.

I measured a few weeks ago and my measurements were kind of STUCK just like my WEIGHT has been stuck for the last few months. But TODAY I finally say a difference! My THIGHS have been stuck at 26 inches for the last 3 months bu they are DOWN to 25 1/2! My calf is also down to 14 3/4!! I am THRILLED! I KNEW my legs felt smaller!!!!! 

The above picture was at 8 weeks and I never got it posted. I will probably post another one like this at 12 weeks and keep it up once a month. That is what I wanted to do anyhow :).

I am making a meal plan today for this next week! I feel pretty good today and so that motivates me! I can't wait until I start loving food again! I can't stand to cook right now.

I did my kettle bells workout today and I am SO excited about keeping this working out up throughout this pregnancy.

Nevermind!!!!!!! LOL

In my last post I said that I was down to 186.......This morning I saw 185!!!!!!!!!!! I was SO shocked!

Anyhow,that's all! I just had to come and post that!

45 pounds GONE!

10 weeks

I know I haven't been around much! I still have MS and while I am doing MUCH better,I still don't have a whole lot of motivation to blog! I am getting my exercise in about 2-3 times a week.Not as much as I should be but I know that will change when I feel better!

For now I am happy and guess what????? The scales went down!!!!!!! After 3 months of being stuck at 187,I was at 186!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't believe my eyes! I got off and on the scale 3 times and it stayed the same! So that thrills me to be 1/4 way done with my pregnancy and I am down a pound! Granted,I NEVER gain this early but It makes me feel good!!!! :)

I am no sticking with THM at this point 100%. I am just trying to eat healthy.I AM still eating THM sometimes (Like this morning,I am going to have Muffin In A Mug for breakfast with Redi-Whip) BUT I am not so worried about sticking to the S and E plan perfectly. I am eating a lot of crossovers basically.

I weigh everyday and definitely plan to keep that up throughout this entire pregnancy! I don't want to fall into the habit of ignoring the scales because I don't WANT to see what I weigh. I am going to FACE it lol and make sure that my weight gain stays under control.(I am really hoping to gain VERY little but we shall see!)

Well,that's all for now. I am off to take a hot bath and weigh........:) Then breakfast! Have a good day!

Morning Sickness

It got the best of me. I lost ALL motivation to eat healthy and exercise. I decided to just forget trying to follow THM until after the sickness was done.

After eating way to much JUNK I have had enough.I am DONE with it TODAY. So many times I just eat the food that sounds tolerable (and protein always sounds grose) and I end up feeling SO weak and shaky because of tooooooo much sugar and carbs. Even though I don't eat that much........I am just not getting enough protein along with the carbs.

I am NOT doing this!!!!

Yesterday I walked my dh up to his truck (up our long and steep driveway) in the COLD.

I had started to feel bad already before we left (6:00 AM) and I was worried about how bad I would feel by the time I got back.(He drives truck and I was going to go with him on a short,local run.) I couldn't bare the thought of eating though so I didn't.

I felt FANTASTIC by the time we got to the top and I continued to feel that way until about 9:00-10:00 AM that morning!!!!!

I am feeling bloated and fat from the junk food. I just can't stand it anymore.

I am going to start every weekday AM out with a 20-30 minute prenatal workout and then do a short workout in the afternoon too. (15-20 min) That will put me at around 45 min a day.

It feels so great to have my motivation back again!!!!!!!!!!!!  I am STILL in the midst of my morning sickness but I am determined to stick this out!!!!!!!
