Facebook Announcement

Hello!

I finally announced my pregnancy to my main social sites, Facebook and Instagram. It was not a secret, but I wanted to be very cute with my announcement. I wanted to incorporate my dog, since I treat him like my child and so I went and looked up pregnancy announcements. Here is the end result!

Pretty cute huh! Hope my re-sizing is not too small but it was huge at the start. I took a picture with my Nikon J1 and it turned out great. I am now 17 weeks along and I am interested in feeling my baby move. I feel like I might have felt her move, but I cannot be too sure. I am sure that it will happen soon. Most 1st time mothers do not feel anything until 20 weeks or so.

School has been kicking my assets, and I find that concentrating on things is hard for me lately. I hear it is associated with being pregnant. Sucks, because I am the sharpest person to most people, and I have become extremely forgetful! I made an 85 on my midterm, and I am very satisfied with that being that I read 4 of the 8 chapters a couple of days before the midterm. I definitely should not let that happen again. EVER.

I have decided to wait on purchasing a home for now, and decided to continue to rent an apartment. Having a baby and a House note on my one person income may be too much for me. So once I get a decent raise, or promotion and adjust to life with a small baby, then I will start the exciting journey again. I move in a few weeks.

In workout news, I have not been motivated, I just have not done it. Period. I am however active, when it comes to work and when I am out, I am just not working out. When I move I will use our amazing apartment gym and take walks around our community. It will be good for the baby and me. I will also do some of these stretches I found on pinterest. So expect some bump pictures soon, I have honestly not been in a picture friendly mood. So I will get it together.

Tuesday Workouts

Garage Fit did it again,

My workouts just keep getting better and better. I really was proud of my performance yesterday! I was a little nervous because I tend to struggle on my 1st days back after a 2-3 day break from my session with my trainer. I grabbed my dog from Doggie day camp and booked it to my trainers. Traffic in Houston was…..difficult to get around.

Yesterday’s workout consisted of:

Warm up: 15 min run w/ Gizm0

3 rounds of:

  • 15 dead lifts w/ 135lbs
  • 15 squats w/ 115lbs
  • lunges up and down the driveway on an incline 6 times (3 up the driveway, 3 down the driveway)
  • 50 jumping jacks with rope
  • 7 hills

 

 

After I found out how much I deadlifted and squatted I felt like this:

I got a 3 minute rest in between the rounds, and it was intense! Having my dog there really distracted me though. I didn’t complain. I have another session this Thursday before Critical Mass and I am contemplating working out for Bootcamp on Saturday since I don’t have a hair appointment this weekend. I ended the night by going home, cooking a nice chicken pasta meal ate that and had some cantaloupe for dessert I cut up earlier in the week. Yum.

My trainer thinks that I can do better and I can step it up even more. I am shocked. I did not know he had that much faith in me. Shoot. Well that goes to show you, that you should give yourself more credit! It’s nice to have someone who thinks you can do amazing things and encourages you to take it to the next level! Did I mention having a personal trainer/working out is in a little way a form of therapy? For me it is. If I have had a bad day, I just take all my anger, and channel it into my workout. If I am feeling lazy or that I cannot do a certain workout, my trainer is there to push me.  Well hope everyone is having a productive humpday!

 

Workout Free Weekend

My weekend was workout free, 

 

I decided not to be a superwoman and take it easy a couple of days out of the week. However, it was very active. I decided to sign up and volunteer with the Houston Humane Society and help them out at one of their mobile locations. We met bright and early at the facility, walked the dogs that were selected for the mobile (all still available for adoption if interested they range from 4 months – 2 years), loaded them up and went to Tom Bass Pro/Outdoor World. I underestimated the vastness of this place. It was like a mall for everything you would need for hunting, camping, fishing, atving and some. It was an amazing place. I would love to go back if I ever decide to deal with wildlife. LOL. Anyways my dog of the day was Winter. She was a 4 month old lab mix (Who I mistook for a boy LOL) and she was very cute. She was cuddly, she was a little shy but everyone who petted her she wagged her tail for. I taught her to climb the stairs and fed her a million treats and after a few hours, she was exhausted. She stopped walking with me at one point and just had the most cute exhausted expression ever. So, you know what I did? I did this:

 

 

Held her like the baby she was. She let me and I took advantage. I kept handing her off to people and they ate it up. She almost got adopted this way a few times. LOL. My dog never allows me to hold him like this he has far too much spunk to be associated with this cuddly calm hold, so I had to get my 30 minutes in. After the mobile I helped out at the facility for a few more hours and went home to shower and change. I started to study for the GMAT, and almost forgot an appointment I had at Walgreens. In order to get into school you have to have a meningitis shot and I have no clue if I ever got one. So I got one. I then proceeded to go to the store and I had a craving for Crab Legs. I made them a little too spicy but it was sooooo goood! 

 

Yum. So I ended the day with a movie. Iron Man. MAN HOLD UP! It was amazing. Must see I recommend it! So I finally passed out. Sunday I spent the day with my dog, studied for 2 hours and went to brunch with a friend at Baby Barnaby’s and the dog park and ended the night with a few Reality TV shows.  Action packed eventful, and not a single workout was done. This week however Monday – Thurday! It goes down!
