Happy New Year


I know it has been a very long time since I have posted on this blog. A lot has happened since I last posted so I will try to catch everyone back up to speed with a quick cliff notes version: 
  • I finished my BA degree in May (finally!!)
  • I started a new job
  • Quit Beachbody
  • I found out I was pregnant! yay!! - Due in March (a girl <3 - Baby Charlotte)
  • And since I have found out I was pregnant I have been put on strict instructions of what to do and what not to do since my first pregnancy was extremely rough (I was put on bed rest at 28 weeks and delivered at 32 weeks). I have now made it just past 28 weeks (it will be 29 weeks tomorrow!) and so far everything is looking really good and no bed rest (knock on wood). For more details on my pregnancy and what kind of restrictions I have been put on see the Pregnancy Update at the bottom of this post.
With everything that has happened it was hard for me to post on here, especially since I was no longer connected to Beachbody and there were so many other things I would rather post about than just fitness! 

So I figured with this new year I will be re-starting this blog. This blog however, will not only focus on my postpartum weight loss this spring but will also be about the many other things I love and are more important to me like: Family, friends, etc.

Pregnancy Update: 
A quick snapshot of what restrictions I have been put on are: No exercising past walking, not lifting anything past 12 lbs, staying extremely hydrated, lower my stress levels, and basically just take it easy! I was also put on progesterone a few weeks ago as an extra precaution so the baby won't come early.
In comparison to my last pregnancy though, I cannot complain because this pregnancy has been extremely easy! Baby Charlotte has been a dream and has been moving around like crazy which is a new experience for me. In my first pregnancy I hardly ever felt Chloe... but with Charlotte I feel her moving around all the time since about the 16 week mark.
I am extremely excited for March and cannot wait to meet this little girl!
