The secret's out!





So as a few of you know, and some of you may have suspected... I'm going to have a baby! I had to wait to share the news publicly with you guys until after I told my family first. I found out just before the new year so that is why my goals for living healthy in 2012 have changed pretty drastically. I no longer wish to be losing those last 20 lbs I had to go... and now I'm actually up to 189(with clothes and shoes on) as of my Dr's appt yesterday. I have put on about 10 lbs since finding out I was pregnant which is kind of a lot this early on, but at the same time I was eating 1200 calories per day and now I'm eating quite a bit more than that so it's to be expected to have a bit of a leap on the scale right away. Kinda like when someone diets for a time period and then goes back to eating how they used to, its much easier to gain it back and much faster. I'm trying not to fret too much and let this screw with my mind about my weight issues, etc... but it is going to be a challenge. Ideally I would like to stay under 200 lbs with this pregnancy, but I really need to stop focusing on numbers and just worry about continuing to eat better and make the healthiest choices possible while eating things that don't make me vomit instantly. lol. I've had a ton of morning sickness already and heartburn and gas and bloating and all those other fun early pregnancy symptoms.

I haven't been exercising as hardcore anymore of course and that's why I decided against P90x and joining the weightloss challenge. I do plan to stay active though and workout whenever I feel up to it. I've been walking and jogging some still. I hit up the fitness center all last week and today I even went to a huge bounce house playroom building full of slides and other cool stuff with my son and my boyfriend and his son and we all wore each other out bouncing around through all of those. It was definitely a workout. lol.

For those curious.. I am just over a couple months along right now and due on September 4th! I just might be able to get back on track to where I was headed by the end of 2012... we'll see. lol. I was sooo looking forward to summer time this year and a cuter bathing suit... but now it looks like I'm gonna be hot as heck all summer instead and have to find a maternity swimsuit, hah. I was due with Jett in August so I know just how bad it sucks to be pregnant all summer long. Oh well... Here's hoping I get a girl this time around! :) I should know sometime in April...

I also have a video of my ultrasound but blogger failed to upload it after me sitting here for an hour so screw it.. I'll share the video later. grr.

I did add a new ticker to the top of my page though.. I'll share it here as well.
