Re: Jessica M. Day one Starts January 2nd

Thank you so much! I just checked out her website and she does give some great tips on how to work out while pregnant. I had no idea it decreases your chance for miscarriage, I thought it was just the opposite. :) I'll check it out some more. Getting back in the gym tonight!

Re: Jessica M. Day one Starts January 2nd

Since nobody actually knows me on this site, I can tell you- I'm two months pregnant!! So that's why I have been completely exhausted and super hungry scarfing down carbs. Any advice out there for someone who is trying to be careful while still being healthy? I'm now 35 and considered a more high ri...

Re: Jessica M. Day one Starts January 2nd

Well, I figured out why I was so tired and now adjusting myself accordingly. I went for a walk on Saturday- 2 miles in the fresh air- it was really nice.
I have been eating alot of carbs so need to adjust my eating too-
Will be going to the gym tonight and run/walking and weight lifting.

Re: Jessica M. Day one Starts January 2nd

Thanks Karen- working through it! Tonight is workout night- 30 minutes of cardio and then some weight training, not sure what I'm doing yet but I know I'm probably doing squats, arms and tummy (and pushups, I'm sure). Had oatmeal with some blackstrap molasses for breakfast and falafel sandwich (not ...

Re: Jessica M. Day one Starts January 2nd

Last night I skipped the weights and just did the running. I couldn't stand being in the gym again. What is it about the gym that drives you insane after a while? Drill Sergeant wasn't happy about me not doing the weights but I tried to just let it roll off my back. Sometimes he thinks that he's hel...

Re: Jessica M. Day one Starts January 2nd

I'm seriously tired this morning. I stayed up reading a book I couldn't put down till 1am and up at 7. Worked out this weekend and it was the first time in a while that I've been sore so it was good!! I started doing pushups- drill sergeant was relentless telling me that I have to do 50 even though ...

Re: Jessica M. Day one Starts January 2nd

It looks more complicated than it actually is. It was basically just putting the sweet potatoes and peppers in the oven and let it soften. Meanwhile mix up the ingredients for the dough- roll it out then when the sweet potatoes and peppers are soft, peel them and mush. It tasted amazing but it was t...

Re: Jessica M. Day one Starts January 2nd

Yesterday was my day off- made my own pasta- for the first time- whole wheat and spelt flour. It was good.
Ate well yesterday except I think I ate one too many ravioli's.

Tonight is training night. Not sure what I'm doing yet because the drill sergeant will be there. Will post more tomorrow.

Re: Jessica M. Day one Starts January 2nd

Thanks Karen- I read your other post too and commented there :) So last night I went to the gym minus my drill sergeant and did 10 minutes elliptical and then 30 minutes running at 5-5.5. It felt really good and I did allow myself a few minutes walking time. I did leg lifts for abdominals and then t...

Re: Karen's...

Karen, Thanks for the encouragement. I do hope all is well with your mom, I completely forgot to mention that in my post above. What you're saying makes sense, will try to incorporate a little more "Leeway" and not get so hard on myself if I don't stay right at 1200 calories. :) And of cou...

Re: Jessica M. Day one Starts January 2nd

I'm reading everyone's fitness journals and realizing that they are training sometimes 2 hours. Am I not doing enough? I need to lose 20 lbs (or become a size 4 whichever comes first). My workouts are usually 1 hour maybe 1:15. I will do the extra 10 minutes of the elliptical and do the 30 minutes o...
