Ultrasound #2

We found out yesterday that we are having a boy! 

This means I want to change the nursery theme… Driving my husband crazy over here.

We are switching from owls to an outdoors/adventure theme. I’m super excited to finish off the registry, put some final touches on the nursery and get ready to go back to work. I work in a school system so I’ve had a semi relaxing summer off by choice only working at my PCA job a few times a week. However as the tummy grows the PCA job is getting more difficult to do. Still trying to find a side gig to bring in some money while I finish out my 2nd and 3rd trimester.

Suggestions welcome! 
Btw how adorable is this nursery? 

3 Month Hiatus

It has been 3 MONTHS!

Things have been a wee bit crazy here. I am pregnant, the weight loss journey has been put on hold for the moment and I am focusing on being healthy and staying active!

It’s been a rough first Trimester. Relentless morning sickness, combined with migraines and not being able to take medication for them has left me bed bound and focusing on getting through each day.

I am SUPER EXCITED to share this journey with you guys. I hope to document how I am staying active and the progress on the baby.

My Why

534c3b437754b9c109eeec1d86aded1a

 

Everyone has a WHY.

It’s the reason you work so hard at your goals. The reason you get out of bed to face a new day and the reason you want to change.

My why stems around my chronic illnesses, wanting to FEEL healthy and physically be healthier than I have been.

I want to lose weight. 30lbs to be exact, however, the number can be flexible with me gaining muscles.

And most importantly I want to be happier. As someone who has struggled with anxiety and depression, I want this to be a year for me.

Introduction

Hello! I decided to start a blog about my health and fitness journey; first for myself to see where I came from and to organize each part of my journey, and second so that others can see examples of the rocky yet amazing road this health and fitness journey is about.

I am 28 years old, got married in 2015 and since freshman year of college I have somehow put on over 40lbs of weight. I know to some of you that may not mean a lot, but to me, health and fitness and the medical field have always been something I loved. I decided to be serious about my journey this year. I have tried a gluten free diet for my migraines, Paleo to see if I have felt healthier, I have tried low carb, no carb, keto… you name it, I could never really stick to something I felt I was being starved on.

I currently follow the 21 day fix/shakeology. I LOVE yoga and have recently fallen in love with MMA style workouts.

Here’s to my journey of self-love, weight loss, and fitness.
