Goals for Jan 3rd - Jan 9th

Sunday, January 03, 2010

What a wonderful weekend this was! We found more items for our little girls nursery and now the room is really coming together. I think it will be done by the date of my shower which is the end of February. I have tried to do as much research as possible on everything from swings, bouncers, cribs and so on. It is amazing the amount of stuff that is out there. It can be overwhelming as there are so many brands to choose from. But with a little patience and a TON of reading on the internet, we have bought most of the big items. It is a good feeling to know that her room will be done before hand and we can rest and much as possible before the big day!

I am excited about another week to work hard and reach some goals!! I want to start 2010 off STRONG! I am still feeling good but I am lowering my miles somewhat this week as I have had some increased heaviness in my abdomen and I just want to be careful not to overdo things. I had to rest this last week more than I would have liked, but in the end it was worth it as I was feeling better as a result and to be honest 20 - 25 miles a week right now is plenty. I am also go to try and add some stationary biking and swimming in this week. I need to get a new suit because my racing one from this summer will split in two if I try to wear that now! LOL!

Hope everyone has a blessed week!

    Isn't getting the nursery stuff set up fun! Our furniture came in on New Years Eve and I had a great time decorating with what we have so far.

    I hear you on the researching baby stuff. There are so many things and brands! Registering was totally stressful!!

    Great goals! You are doing a great job pushing yourself without going beyond your limits!

    You are doing fantabulous!!! Congrats on your pregnancy. Totally listen to your body. As you get bigger, you'll do less time and get a little slower. However, it's all good. As long as you keep active the weight gain will just fall right off within months of the pregnancy. I'm sure you've done tons of reading, just a tip, a woman's body takes about 18mths to get back to the stability it had before the pregnancy, so don't worry if things are quite the way you want them to be when they baby comes. Just do what you can and enjoy the little one :D

    I have heard that swimming is the most awesome thing that you can do while your pregnant! What a GREAT plan! (I LOL about your bathing suit splitting in half, but maternity suits are SO CUTE!!!)

    Make sure you take photos of that finished baby room :) You are working mighty hard on top of all that walking - you should be very proud of that activity level!

    I'm so excited for you! It is a relief to have things done before hand. Then you can concentrate on staying healthy and fit while she continues to grow. Looking forward to seeing how your week goes! Good luck but take care of yourself.

    What an amazing job you are doing! You are inspiring to everyone, and even more so to other mothers-to-be that it is possible to be active and have fun while being pregnant.

    I hope you have a wonderful week, and are able to achieve all of your goals!
