Back in 2015 I lost over 20lbs for my wedding. Through weightlifting and IIFYM. I was able to maintain for a while, but gained a bit back in the typical marriage comfort and complacency.
In November hubs and I found out we were pregnant! Baby Jaxon is due June 27 and we could not be more excited!
Pregnancy has been an interesting journey.Â Â You read and read about it, freak out about every little symptom and abnormal reaction, and in my case, get sick. A lot.Â Â Morning sickness only hit me for a couple weeks, I thought hey- Iâm super lucky!
Migraines, indigestion, chronic fatigue, insomnia and 3 major colds in a 4 month span.Â Â I am only 23 weeks and I am WORE OUT! Not only wore out-but feeling guilty. I am creating a life here! A cute little nugget, I shouldnât be feeling this crappy about the process! Needless to say- my workouts since week 8 have been few, far between, and consisting mostly of walking my pups a few miles on sunny days. -
We cancelled our gym membership due to lack of time and budget and had joined Beachbody On Demand earlier in Fall.Â Â I had done Insanity in the past and loved being able to do different workouts from the comfort of my home and in less than an hour a day. -
But I realized that I had become lazy and was using my pregnancy as an excuse.Â Â I was always too tired or too sick or too busy with work.Â Â I am a generally healthy person and have a healthy baby growing, but that was not how I wanted to live my life!Â Â The week I started back up I already felt my energy increasing and my general attitude improve. I realized this change was way overdue. -
After much research and internal debate- I have decided to officially join the Beachbody family.Â Â Although I am a little late to the game as far as this pregnancy is concerned, I am so excited to continue withÂ Â building this healthy pregnancy and jumpstart my postpartum journey into Motherhood in health and happiness!
