WELCOME! I hope y'all enjoyed the Work It: Wednesday posts from last week, because I know I sure did! I cannot even express how thankful I am that we as teachers get this time every year to focus on US!
I am on Day 8 of the Advocare 24 day Challenge and LOVING the results so far. I snuck a weigh-in on Day 7 and was down 4 lbs. I really wanted something to help me jumpstart my progress and this challenge is doing just that! I have tons of energy and am still eating plenty to keep Smith and me happy :) If you want to learn more about the Challenge you can follow me on Instagram or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Smith is exactly a month old today (Holy cow that went quickly) so I felt comfortable adding in hand weights into my daily workouts. I REALLY love slinging around heavy weights at the gym, but I will wait for my doctor's approval before I start that- ha!
Check out my SweatShop ha! We had just gotten back from our 2 1/2 mile walk and I felt like working out my shoulders. I did not continue lifting weights throughout my pregnancy like I had intended to do so I am sticking to my 8s and 5s for now!
Remember when I said I am still eating a lot??? Ha! I really am! I am paying intention to ingredients and tracking everything in My Fitness Pal.
I also think I am getting a pretty good workout by baby wearing! Ha! I still have two older children that need lots of attention too.
And last but not least... I am taking progress pictures. I actually don't *love* this part right now, but I know I will be very thankful for the pictures soon!
And just because I don't want to leave you with a selfie of me (ha!)... here is a picture of Smith "meeting" the Atlantic Ocean for the first time!
I can't wait to read your entries!
