BUMPdate: 26 Weeks!

I know, it’s been far, far too long since you’ve had a decent #bumpdate from me, so here you go!!

How far along are you: 26 weeks – I actually am into the “less than 100 days to go” countdown…eeek!!!

Fruit: This week baby is as big as a head of lettuce (well that’s not very adorable…)

Baby bump: It’s in full effect!! There’s really no question now, although strangers still won’t come out and ask, they just stare at me strangely…

Maternity Clothes: Yes, yes, and yes.  I still have a few dresses I can wear that are stretchy (like the one in this pic) , but who knows how much longer that will last.

Gender: Baby Girl J

Stretch Marks: No new ones (yet)

Sleep: I wake up every night to pee, but so long as I get my workout in each day I’m getting a good amount of sleep each night.  I’m still tired a whole lot though!

Cravings: No new ones really.

What Makes Me Wanna Gag: No specific food, but I’ve been getting heart burn like crazy – at this rate, she’s bound to come out super hairy because it’s non-stop!

Exercise: Walking, running, Piyo, a little Turbo Jam, and the 21 day fix.  I do what I can, when I can, even if it’s not every day its better than nothing!

Mood: I feel pretty good, no real complaints!

Favorite thing this week: Our little girl is moving quite a bit these days, she’s super active and kicking around on a regular basis.

Excited For: Deciding on a name and starting the nursery!

In other news...I think I NEED this shirt, don't you!???

Happy weekend! :)

No more excuses

I've let my little corner of the internet here slip away, I'm sorry for those of you waiting on regular posts from me, my life has just gotten so crazy lately and to be honest, I'm usually too tired when I do have the time that I don't want to come up with a new post! I hope you cut me a little slack on that, but to tell you the truth, I feel like I've been full of excuses lately. 

I'm pregnant.  So what.  That's not an excuse to throw out my good eating habits or my daily exercise routine, or just feeling good in my own skin.  I posted last week about weight gain woes and feeling more fat than pregnant some days, and that's still very true, but the more I think about it, I'm realizing that I'm feeling so terrible about it because I KNOW I'm not making the best choices.  I've started a new round of the 21 day fix more times than I can count during this pregnancy and fell off after just a few days when I gave into my cravings.  I've been using those excuses, and the "I'm pregnant I'm allowed" mentality to allow myself to slip back into my old habits, and to tell you the truth, I'm miserable because of it.  I've been very lucky in having a fairly easy pregnancy with no major issues or morning sickness (vomiting) issues, so it's about time I take advantage of that.  I'm starting (yes another) new round of the 21 day fix on Monday.  I will eat healthy for me AND my daughter, because we deserve to be healthy, period.  Here we go (again)!
