Good morning Lovelies!!

I'm going to try to make this quick (I have a presentation to give in 30 mins).

First off I want to congratulate HarlowB on her pregnancy!! Yay!!! And I want to answer her comments she left me last night.

T is my friend who did the fitness competitions. She didn't really change her routine all that much. At almost 6 months, she's still working out 6 days a week. When she first found out, she didn't change anything until she noticed her body changing. First she had to stop all core work because she wasn't as flexable. She's still doing weights and cardio. Mind you, her cardio has been reduced as well. Her mindset is that she will keep going until her body starts to say that she should let up a little. She's taken up more yoga and is spending a lot of time walking her dog. All this doesn't really phase me, or seem over the top or anything like that. What really knocks me off my feet is that this woman wants to do another fitness competition 14 MONTHS after she gives birth! The big question is going to be how fast will she be able to bounce back into her routine after the baby comes! What I might try to do, is push her into posting an update on one of her blogs. Her and J have let their blog fall to the wayside a bit. If I can get her to post one, I'll make sure to link it on my blog for you and any other mommy to be-s here (Kitty).

So after 2 weeks I've hovered in the 129.something range. I did have a day or two where I slipped back into the 130s but it went back down the next day. I think it's safe to say I've broken the 130s officially and today's even 129 cements it. Wish I went lower but this is a big enough feat for me. I put on a pair of trousers today that I always remember being skin tight since Uni but I put them on today and they're BAGGY. I've never owned baggy clothes. They've either fit or been tight. So I kinda jumped for joy at that this morning (and maybe did a little dance around the room).

I'm nervous for school to start next week because I don't want to eat the food here. I've gotten into such a nice routine this summer I don't want to ruin it. But the thing is that I wouldn't be able to bring my own food in and eat it in the dining room in front of the kids. They are given a hot meal every day and there are so many kids with allergies no outside food is allowed. And it's not fair to eat other food they cant have. GAH!

Do you ladies remember the purse I bought 2 years ago before my wedding with the fringe on it? It's the only fall purse I have and I can't seem to figure out if it's still in style enough to wear still. The bags I see these days are all super structured. What do you think?? Help?


  1. Thanks for this post! I like T's philosophy and I think I'm going to follow it myself! If she hasn't gained a ton of weight a fitnesscomp 14 months after her baby is born should be doable. Then again it'll probably depend on how much sleep she's able to get.

    That's tricky about the dining room. Any way you can eat before or after in your office??

  2. Who cares if it's "in style" or not. Wear what you like!


  3. I love love to have her blog link if she posts :)

    One thing I have learned during the last 6 moths is to listen to the body.. The pregnancy and the recovery can be different for each and every woman - so it's really hard to follow in someones footsteps.. That said I think everyone should try to stay active and keep moving as long as they can :)

    Hmm.. Isn't any sort of food allowed? Not even green salads? - Is it possible to talk to them and see if they can prep a not so unhealthy meal for you??

    I don't know what purse you are talking about :) but as MLM says - wear it if you like it :) Else I have never seen a reason for why not to shop for more purses ^^
