22 Weeks and Counting

I'm into my 22 week of pregnancy (tomorrow I conclude 22 and I'm onto 23), and it's going so GREAT!!! I just wanted to update and say that I'm very round - I'm getting from big in the belly to basketball under the shirt belly... it's wonderful! God is Good!!

dropping the weight...

Well Pregnancy works for big girls like me. Not that I'm that bi - but I'm not a Skinny Minny... at all. I have curves where I should - so meh... BUT since getting pregnancy, and joining the gym, I've lost a pound or two every week... since stopping the gym, I've still lost a pound or two...

My doctor isn't worried, shes says big girls have it to lose. It will only be a problem at the end of my 2nd,m and into my 3rd trimester.

Since I'm at 14 weeks I hope to level out soon. I've popped - but just a littl Since I'm a big waisted woman, I have a ton of room for baby and the Dr. says I'll pop, but then stay at this size for a little while... then sorta pop again. So I hope to level out with the weight then.

So I'm not at the gym a lot... which i'm Ok with.

Cause... well I'm preggers, and I have to worry about Incubating, not getting fit... so the cool thing is I can still write about being fit and preggers... and I don't have to change the name of this blog. :D

I think I'm quitting the Gym

I've been taking it easy - and I think the best thing to do is quit the gym. I hope they will give me my last 3 months balance... cause I'd like to move the money over... to the pool. I find Aqua-sizing much much better. and I cold do more... for less... and it wouldn't hurt my body.

So here's hoping that maybe I'll be able to drop the hard core, and bump down to soft core... doesn't that sound awful... but it's what I gotta do.

Aqua-sizing three times a week, and belly dancing weekly that will be good!! I think.

Here's hoping that I'll maintain my current weight loss plan.

It's really fun, and I love it!

Robin and I go Tues. and Thurs. mornings. It's really great, we're with 15 other ladies, and one lovely gentleman. I would guess besides Robin and I, the average age is 54. But that's just a guess.

Its easy on my knees, and I really feel it. It doesn't hurt like after a really hard day at the gym... but you feel it.

Anyways I like that I'm doing things and I like that I like doing them...

Having to slow down..

So going to the gym was wonderfully successful. I was dropping a pound and a half a week... but I have to slow done - my doctors are thinking that I should just take it a little easy - and not push so much - maybe the lack of sleep, the crazy tired... sigh... so I'm cutting back - no heavy lifting, and pushing with the wieghts - I'll drop down some weight - but keep the reps up. I"m doign Aqua Sizing twice a week - which is good!

I'm just hoping to stay healthy - -skinny is not what I'm looking for - but Fit is.

And the reward goes to.. Me

I have hit my goal! I'm ever so proud. 1 1/2lb and a half each week - - it's only week 3 so I hope I can keep it up. I'm really watching my weight and writing a food journal. Robin and I are working at incorporating some weight watchers ideas, like points, into our routine. It would be really nice to have this all ingrained in my brain, so that I just live better, and healthier.

I got a compliment from a lovely lady at our church, saying that I looked like I was losing some weight... so people are noticing - I don't see any results, but I'll just keep hoping....

Hitting the Gym

So Today I'll be hitting the Gym, with Cardio and Weights combo workout. I'm hoping that I can keep losing the 1lb and a half I need to...

I've eaten a little less than normal this weekend, but I didn't really focus on my calories - which I should have, cause even thought I ate a little less than normal, I think my Calories were the same... so - I have to work harder.

Here's Hoping...

I start this week at 219...

Am I gaining?

I don't think so, but I'm not so sure that I'm losing either.

I come home from working out - FAMISHED. I think I'm eating more now, I wish someone had told me sooner - not to Over eat. Yeesh! I knew to watch what I eat, but I didn't really pay that close attention. I will from now on.

Yesterday I ate over 2200 calories. I didn't mean to... I didn't plan on it. This is going to be uber tough. This morning I had some fruit - 150 Cal. It's not lunch yet, and I'm not hungry, yet. This is where it gets tricky - I'll want to eat a lot at Lunch so that I don't eat a TON at dinnertime. See I have this awful habit of eating a lot, late at night. I really need to curb that too, huh?

I've made it a week without Chocolate, well not completely - I had one treat, a slice of cake.. but mostly I avoid it. ... it's actually doable.

I'm not going to the gym today - I had an hour long belly dance practice last night - and tomorrow is our performance. So today is rest day!

I'm pleasantly plump woman, and my favorite quote of the month is...

"I'm fat, But only on the Outside..."

It's Februray 2010.
GOAL: lose 25 lbs by June 2010
Current weekly goal: 1.5 lbs a week.

Height: 6 feet...
Current Weight : 221 (OUCH)

This is going to be tough, but I think it's totally doable.
