  • 28 weeks tomorrow and I'm still running, just a little slower each day. Well, today I actually ran pretty decent but I think I had extra energy built up from not running over the weekend.

    Goals for this week: 4 days running with at least on 5 to 6ish mile run.

  • I got all my cardio and yoga in last week.  Unfortunately it's really hot now that summer is here so going out around the neighborhood with DD is not worth it.  I"m thinking maybe we can do it in the evenings after dinner and after it's cooled off a bit.

  • I'm trying to lose that annoying last 5lbs, tone up a little too. After having DS (9 months ago) it motivated me to get into better shape. I've had a pooch since I was a teen, and always wanted to be more toned. We'll start trying for another around October, so I was going to wait until I was finished having kids to get in shape, but decided I need to stop putting it off. That's how I got this way in the fist place.

     

    I walked 2.5 miles early this morning, followed by 20 minutes of strength training. The heat was brutal but I feel great now!

    Running in this heat at 28 weeks is insanely awesome. Good for you!

    I run early in the morning and on a nice shaded trail. It is quite refreshing! I'm hoping to get in one more half marathon type race ::a relay where i run 2.2 miles at a time but it adds up to about 13:: in July then do what I can until baby comes in September.

    I am an active lurker and occasional poster on this board.  I never took part in one of these check ins, but it's never too late to start!  

    Short term goals: being able to run until the day I deliver.  

    Long term goals: get back to exercising postpartum ASAO with my doctor's permission. Running in the Cowbell half marathon on October 6th. Running a Ragnar race in 2014.

    Yesterday I ran 4 miles, and today I hope to get in a 3 miler.  Tomorrow will be plyometrics and resistance training, and Wednesday will hopefully be a 4-5 miler. Thursday is kickboxing and Friday will be my day off.  Saturday will be another 3 miler.

    Good job on staying on track. It is so hot here to but every evening it seems to rain. Good luck!

    We don't have rain in the forecast at all this week.  With it being so hot, we've decided to potty train DD.  We've been inside a lot.  I think a nice walk would be good for us tonight.

  • I tried on my wedding dress and it fit! I am beyond excited. DS kept saying "That's the dress in the picture!" I'm a few pounds above my wedding weight but it zipped right up!

  • I've lost 2 pounds since last check in.  I started weight watcher meetings on Saturday, after doing it online for a few weeks... I am really excited about it and feeling pretty good with the healthy eating and exercise I've been getting the last few weeks.  Thanks for the support! Good luck to everybody!

  • I'll be 30 weeks Thursday and I am still able to run, much to my surprise. I ran 5.25 mi. on Friday and this morning and they both felt great. I have made adjustments to pace and set up a loop so I can grab water after each mile and a quarter. I was camping this weekend for my sister's bachelorette party, so it was VERY nice to get back home and into my routine. I'll have a leg day tomorrow, back and bi on Wednesday, shoulders and tris on Thursday, another run on Friday, and chest and core on Saturday...I can't wait! I always warm up on the elliptical for my strength days and take our dog for a walk in the evenings. So far, I haven't worn my Gabrialla belly support, and it's only because I'm nervous about how much it will rub on my skin and cause unnecessary pain. I'll let you know when I need it and how it goes!

    Nice work to those of you who are PP and making progress on those weight loss goals. Eating well, staying active, and being positive are certainly going to benefit you no matter where you are at in your journey. It sounds like many of you are doing a great job! I'll need your support after our LO comes because my sister's wedding is 5 weeks after my EDD...I hope the dress fits when the time comes! :) Stay well!

  • It sounds like everyone is doing really good!

  • Hello ladies,

    Awesome job everyone - you're giving me inspiration! I missed last week's check-in because I just came back from vacation (zero exercise other than some hiking and lots of unhealthy food!).

    So remember how I was complaining about being unable to lose the last 5lb? Yeah, being pregnant might have something to do with that. As it turns out I'm 9 weeks tomorrow. And about 1lb up from pre-p weight I guess - could be bloat. I've been feeling tired so only did 2 runs of 2.5 miles last week. Hoping this week to feel better and do more exercise (and indulge in less carb cravings).

  • First time checking in, long time lurker. I'm a SAHM/ prenursing student with an almost 2year old DD. I've been obese since my early teens, but I ballooned to 251 on a 5'2" frame while pregnant. Since new year's, I've been working on getting fit, and I am now down to 230!

    My short term goals are to get my water consumption back up, and to start exercising again. I've been using the broken DVD player excuse for too long.
    My long term goal is to get under 200, closer to 175, before we TTC 2, And to run a 5K.

    What wonderful news! Congratulations! The energy will certainly rebound, so keep doing what you can!  

  • Hey ladies,
    Wow great job everyone. Sorry for the late update, it has been a busy week.

    Iloveshane, sorry about your back. I feel your pain, mine has been on and off killing me for the last 3 weeks. For me it too much sitting, which translates into having 3 babies and always sitting with them. Whether is be playing, feeding etc. Movement is the only thing that really helps me. I am thinking of going to a sports physio as welll as a sports massage therapist, I think my muscles are all out of wack because of the bed rest and all the sitting. So sorry that your has been bothering you.

    Ajboocher, that is great that you're still running. GL with your goals for this week!

    Vlagrl, you had a really great week last week. I think the evening walk idea sounds good. DH and I along with the LO do this and it's a nice break and helps to clear your mind from the days happenings.

    Rollo, that is fantastic that you're getting in shape. Think of the example you're setting for your LO.

    Cjm724, wow! You're incredibly active. Good for you. With everything that you're doing you should have no problem with doing the half marathon.

    Arcadia1114, awesome that you fit into your dress! That is just so motivational to keep doing what you're doing.

    Soexcited317, fantastic on the weight loss.

    LiveNlove44, you're also doing so well at being pregnant while you're pregnant. Keep it up, good for you and for LD!

    egannon979, that is so great what you're doing, keep it up.

    Litzo27, Congrats!!!!

    AFM my week wasn't that great exercise wise, I was on a track but the rain messedup my plans for 2 more runs. I ran 3 time, about 16 miles. Walked for an hour 5 times. Ate pretty well and when I weighed myself I had lost 2kg. This week already is messedup because of the extreme heat and with home renovations.

    Thanks! Mine is injury related and lupus related. I hope yours feels better. I also had a cyst removed from the top of my head. The doc reassured me that I'd be able to exercise the next day. I can't even sit up quickly or my head starts hurting bad. Oh well, there's always next week!

  • Hi ladies.

    I've been missing in action a good long while, and basically I was lackinig motivation and not looking after myself. Then suddenly I got back into the swing of things.

    I've lost 10lbs in the last month and am feeling very balanced with my eating. I'm not obsessing on what to eat or not to eat. I'm eating delicious nourishing foods, and enjoying treats when the mood strikes me. 

    My ongoing battle is exercise. Partly because of the difficulty carving out a time slot where I can focus on it. Partly because I'm so tired all the time because of lack of sleep.

    So I'm focusing on being active throughout the day. I jog up steps, lift and carry stuff at school rather than just asking students to do it, gardening, dancing and playing with the girls etc etc etc. I figure that as I'm more and more active my energy levels will build, I'll get some quality sleep.

    I'm also focusing on being kind when I have zero energy because I'm sick, the girls are sick, DH is out of town and the girls have been awake through the night.
