Hi! I have been reading all of y'all's journals for awhile now and have been inspired to start up my own. I had a couple at mm.com but never really followed through on them. No more of that! It's great how you are all so supportive of each other and i could really use some of that right now.
I am 5 1/2 months pregnant with my first (and probably only) child, due the end of October. I am very excited/freaked out about having a baby. So, since I'm pregnant I haven't been lifting as heavy as I normally would, but I have managed to work out every day since day one! (as I have for about the last 5 years or so)
I've been eating well for the most part, but this is the main area I need improvement. I tend to binge and obsess about my food intake. I am tired of guilt! I have sometimes used being pregnant as a good excuse to eat something that I normally wouldn't.
Most of the time I am focused, though. I am really excited to get into better shape than I ever have been after giving birth. That helps to keep me focused.
Wow, I am rambling. I'll cut to the chase.
Height: 5' 5 1/2"
Weight: usually 132, currently I'm 22 weeks preg and weigh 140
Bfat: usually 18%
My goals right now are to eat consistently healthy, lots of veggies, cut out processed foods. Stick to whole foods with protein and grains as well.
I want to eat as clean as possible now to be that much closer to being super buff chick after. Before getting pregnant I could see my top two abs, and had good muscle definition, but not the quantity of muscle that I would like.
I just got back from vacation a couple hours ago and ate more junk than I would care to write down so I will start posting my intake and workouts officially tomorrow. Any and all advice, constructive criticism and random chat is appreciated and welcome!
