Since last Thursday I have gotten in a bunch of good strength training workouts.

THURSDAY OFF/REST day due to the intense course coming up this weekend

FRIDAY 3 Hours of Group Power training (strength workout), 15 minute walk with cooper

SATURDAY 2 1/2 hours of Group Power training (all strength exercises), plus more practice at night

SUNDAY 1 hour group power working, 12 minute jog/walk followed by 40 minute strength workout

MONDAY REST, man my body needed it

TUESDAY 1 hour Cardio Boot Camp class, very sweaty!

WEDNESDAY 20 minute walk with Cooper, and 1 hour practice session for the Group Power class (super light weights)


SYMPTOMS: I am knocking on some wood when I say this, but NONE!!

FOOD ADVERSIONS: Green beans.. I could not stomach them yesterday!

FOOD CRAVINGS: No cravings, but this week I found myself looking for more carbohydrates (probably due to all my workouts) I ate whole wheat veggie pasta, white & Sweet potatoes, whole wheat bread, and whole grain crackers to get in some healthy carbs.

SLEEP: I’ve been passing out! Sleeping on my left side on a regular basis which is great.

MATERNITY CLOTHES: I am happy to say I got a package from Old Navy yesterday. I bought 2 maternity dressses, 1 maxi and 1 that is knee length. They are both form fitting to show off my growing bump. I also bought 2 workout tops that actually fit and 1 workout jacket!! I am beyond excited to have some new clothes!

STRETCH MARKS: None! Trying to remember to use cocoa butter daily but I definitely don’t.


This shot is a little blurry but its hard to take pictures by yourself!



belly is getting bigger, I think it is double this size at night!


DO I MISS ANYTHING: I miss some of my old clothes. Luckily summer is almost over because my bathing suits are getting too small. I also miss doing ab work but planks will have to do for the time being!

MOVEMENT:  Lots of flips and punches. Mainly at night, but I am definitely feeling movement throughout the day.

BABY ITEMS PURCHASED: My parents bought us a crib! I can’t wait to set it up.


I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO: A 3-day weekend and getting the baby’s room all cleaned out. I am also looking forward to practicing my Group Power workout so that I can tape soon :)
