7 Months and updates

Hello world!

 

I have been here in the background following my blogger friends and what not but I have not been posting. I have good news, I am 28 weeks and 5 days pregnant (seven months) and I have 11 weeks more to go! I am in my 3rd trimester and  I cannot wait to meet my little one!

I passed my classes for Grad school and let me tell you my level of concentration was not all there. Like at all. I made it with B’s. I have been really putting my all into my baby shower and planning it has been no easy feat.( I have a checklist!)  I am also spending more time with family and friends and working on my long term relationships. I went this weekend with my oldest niece in tow to Schlitterbaun. Schlitterbaun is a waterpark close to San Antoinio that is arguably one of the biggest waterparks in the world.  Fun times my whole family came out for the event and we had a blast. My niece loved it they had so many areas for kids to play in and she took FULL advantage.  She got sick however and nursing a 5 year old while pregnant and exhausted is not easy. The next day I fell asleep everywhere!

This weekend I get to spend time with my youngest niece and she is a cutie! I am excited to get all of this family time because it really is showing my little family does bond. I love it!

 

Trip to Atlanta and Such

Last week,

Me and my dad road tripped it to Atlanta. We could have flown, which is the easier alternative. I have not taken a road trip with him since I was a little girl, maybe four! So, it was a great bonding experience. We took our time, started out early, laughed joked and got there safely.

Our reason for traveling so far was for a few reasons; He has not seen his step son from his 1st marriage since the 90’s, and I wanted to see my Extended family on my Mothers side. I got to see my Aunt, my cousins, and even got to hang out with everyone. It was overdue and I plan on coming back. I also got to bond with my Stepbrother and his wife. It was overall an awesome experience.

I found out that I am pretty good at training dogs too. They had a big dog, a lab mix named Taz, and he was a very active dog. So I taught him a few more commands in addition to the ones my stepbro and wife taught him and helped him get more freedom! They kept him in the cage because he could be so excited with company. By the time I left back for Houston, he was a cool calm and collect dog. Exciting stuff. Gizmo, however, might not like that I cheated on him with another dog. LOL That is a whole other story. So I am officially 16 weeks and 5 days preggers and I am starting to poke out. Let me tell you it is weird and awesome. The only dislike I have is my breasts. They are LARGE. They have doubled in size and I think they are not done growing. I am glad I am tall and tig ol’es fit my body type. Otherwise it would truly look like I had some work done LOL.

School has really kept me busy and with me trying to do it all and realizing I cannot, I have to learn to prioritize a little bit better. I am working on it!

 

 

Atlanta!

Hello everyone from ATL!

I’m having a blast here I have been here since Thursday visiting family. They have laid out the red carpet! We have had a get together, dancing, eating, drinking, laughs and there is still more to go!

My cousin is turning 60 and she is having a 3 day party get together. Last light was the kickoff at her house, tonight is the big get together and tomorrow is the Sunday backyard BBQ. When my family parties they party! Today I am visiting my dads stepson from his 1st marriage. It’s nice to see what people From my dads former life prior to his marriage to my mom and having us kids. My sister will be joining us today. Yay! She decided to fly a few days later. Well here are some pics

Bicycle Chick

I’m a lady and a cyclist!

I rode around my neighborhood and it was a good one. My knees and lower quads got a good little workout thanks to my improperly inflated tires. I will get the hang of this biking stuff one day. I must say riding as the sun set is a beautiful scene . next time I will take a picture. I burned a good 311 calories despite what the app said I did. My Polar FT4 never fails me! So after my sweaty bike ride, I played fetch with man’s best friend Gizmo, packed my bags for an upcoming trip and spruced up my place.  I am visiting family in Atlanta this weekend and my mother, and little sister will be accompanying me. My sister is all about Yoga and I will ask her to show me some moves for sure. Tonight, I will be watching the game and drinking water. I would prefer to ride my bike around my neighborhood quickly, but that will not work. On Instagram I follow a lady named @FollowtheLita and she is truly inspirational when it comes to fitness. She posted, yesterday, a at work workout regimen I think I will try when everyone leaves since I work a later shift this month.

See? She is an inspiration to all. She also shows that you will not look like a man if you work out intensely. She is the epitome of dope when it comes to fitness. I will be participating in something really cool at the end of this month and it involves food! I will be excited to reveal to you that I participated in something unique fun and encourages my creativity! Speaking of food, I also tried the Chobani key Lime flip cup.

SOOOOO Yummy I encourage everyone to try one. I think it is an awesome alternative even if it is 170 calorie snack.  I know I am all over the place in today’s post and thank you for baring with me. My caffeine intake from my coffee has not leveled off. Everyone have a great day!

Stadium Sprint Challenge

If you like a great challenge, then a stadium sprint is definitely a way to go. Tribesports has put together a workout that will work your upper, lower body and core. The best thing of it all is that you can use your own body weight. I am considering doing it sometime this week. I live where I have access to stairs (stadium not needed if you do not live close to one). I love that Tribesports puts up new challenges every week and day. It is refreshing to switch up the routine and keep it spicy. Follow them on Instagram as well, they have some really awesome challenges of the day that they post. Mini Circuits and Supersets galore!.

In other news:

I went to Las Vegas this weekend and had a blast! It was a nice little birthday get away with some amazing friends from Dallas. We did everything we wanted to do! We walked, ziplined, danced, ate, toured, gambled, rode bulls, shopped. You get the point. I walked at least 10 miles each day. At least it felt like it. Here are a few pictures.

My December

My December was fabulous!!! I went with 32 of my family and friends to the Dominican Republic. It was WONDERFUL. I mean it was beyond beautiful and it was the epitome of paradise. I went para-sailing, I went Kayaking  I danced bachata y meringue  took shots of ron! (rum) and enjoyed the Dominican cuisine. My Spanglish really helped me out. They thought I was Dominican and they refused to believe I had no Dominican descent in me. LOL Here are some pictures.
