Finding my New Normal and 14 Weeks!

A little truth talk today.

I've spent the last two and a half years focusing on healthy eating, losing weight and getting fit. I lost 40 lbs and felt better than ever.  I rocked a 2 piece at the beach with my husband three months ago... and then...

I've spent the last 14 weeks doing the opposite.

I've talked before about how I get in my head about my weight and how I look. Getting pregnant this time, I was just so worried about the baby after the miscarriage in the spring, I think I reverted back to comfort eating, coupled with the fact that I could only stomach carbs and adding to taking medicine for the pregnancy that can cause weight gain, and I am going into second trimester with more weight put on that I would like.

It's hard.

And I wanted to be open and honest and share with you that now that I have made it to second trimester, I need to make a change. I need to workout daily, start drinking my shake again and making this pregnancy HEALTHY for me and this sweet baby, and not reverting back to my old ways.
So I am asking for help and accountability. I'm going to make a private fitness accountability group. I don't care if you're doing Crossfit, walking on your own, or a beach body program. Let's support each other in this journey. I'll also be starting a fit pregnancy and postpartum group soon. I'll be starting unofficially back on track this week, but officially next Monday with my Health Bet group doing Country heat and drinking Shakeology, as long as my doctor approves it for second trimester when I see her this week. I'd love for you to join me with one of our programs, or a program of your own. If you choose a Beachbody program with Shakeology you'll be able to join our Health Bet group where Beachbody is giving away somewhere between 1.3-3 million dollars just for using our app and logging your workouts and shakeology. WHAT WHAT?! If you can commit to 30 days with me, I promise you results.

I'd love to share more info with you on that if you want it! You can email me or reach out on Social media. I have some special gifts for the first few Challenge Pack purchases too!

So I don't know. I turn 30 on Friday. I need to feel like me again. I kind of lost my confidence, and I am needing to gain it back. I'm worrying too much about things I can't control. So I'm delving deeply back into God's word and need to get my physical journey back on track too. Who wants to help me?

And I am 14 weeks today. Baby boy is the size of a lemon. I'm in all stretchy and maternity pants and loose tops.  I'm so happy to be able to eat my normal foods again and to be feeling better, very little nausea and just a little growing pains. I've felt him move some these last few weeks, the boys can't wait to be able to feel him, Hudson asks me almost every day.


I'm craving coke icees and pickles. It's serious stuff around here.
...so thats about it for today. I'm ready to get back in the swing of things and "my new normal". I'm staying off the scale, and just focusing on make "healthy" choices and working out. I have lost weight before, I can lose weight again a year from now after this baby is here... but I want to do everything in my power to be HEALTHY this pregnancy.


Happy Monday.
