I'm sorry for your loss. It must have been very hard. The only good thing is that his organs will help other people live, so his tragedy will be turned into hope for many people. My thoughts are with you.

Thank you, I really agree with you about organ donation. Some people out there got life changing/saving news on Friday morning and that is amazing.

I feel like crap today! I think its all in my head though. I got up and Mike and I did 20 minutes of yoga and I just got back from running 2.5 miles. Its humid and nasty out but I really love running, what a nice therapy session LOL. I ate well yesterday and I am doing good so far today.

Uck so maybe I am not up to posting pics. Shame on me. Today was a good day. I tired the vega sport preworkout drink and it was good. I am sensitive to a breeze and I felt fine :) It even helped my run, I def had more energy throughout the day. I ran 2.5 miles, played soccor with my kids and hubby and practices an hour of power yoga. My arms are killing me.
Now I am making some healthy baked beans for the weekend for the holiday :D If they turn out good I will share the recipe.

Hey you have already posted some pics, so you can't feel too bad about how you look! Sometimes a lifestyle change takes some time to have a big effect, but the important thing is that you are getting healthier day-by-day!

Awesome job, you are working hard and making fantastic progress! Love to see people being super-active soon after having a child. It sets a great precedent and you are being an awesome role model for your kids! Keep it up and you will be photo ready in no time!

Thank you Derek :) My kids like to "workout" with me. I am happy they will grow up knowing a healthy lifestyle from day one.
I just dont like the pics I took, the other ones are ok (the ones I posted) but these eh...
Anyway this weekend wasnt bad. We ate really well. No drinking, early to bed.... Im thrilled. Today was fantastic. We woke up and did an hour of power yoga, had breakfast and went to the track. I did 25 minutes of HIIT and hubby ran after I did. He had surgery in April and he is getting back into everything slowly. I feel really good. I registered for a marathon in October. It benefits the rail trail in the lehigh valley. I got my running plan and I am pretty excited. I LOVE running in the fall, the run followsthe susquhanna river.... its going to be beautiful.
I kind of want to run a 5k this weekend, it is at 6:30 pm and benefits a local fire company. I just want to run for fun. We will see what the weather has in store.

Yesterday was my rest day, I went grocery shopping and then I actually rested (well as much as possible with the kids). I went to bed early and today was fantastic. I woke up and had the vega sport preworkout drink. I really really like it. I mixed it up today, I have been doing tons of yoga so today I felt like lifting and I did! I am thrilled because the yoga has helped me so much I had to use heavier weights!!! YEA!
3 sets 12 lateral raises
3 sets 12 bicep curls
3 sets 12 rows
3 sets 12 front raises
3 sets 12 tricep kickbacks
3 sets 12 overhead presses

Now I used 10lb weights which for me is great and I am feeling like I may need more because they really werent that tough. During pregnancy I was using 5lb weights so I am pleased :)
After that I did my runners abs routine and I added some extra pilates moves in because I like them.
80 crunches with legs flat
40 side stretch crunches
pilates 100
12 roll ups
2 sets 50 bicycle crunches
2 sets 20 supermans held for 10 sec ea
2 sets 12 bridges with leg ext
2 sets 20 swimmers
2 sets planks with leg lift 10x 5 sec ea
standing rib rotations
Then we packed up the family and went to the track (1/8th mile from our front door) and I ran 4 miles in 38 minutes, it was hot and humid but who cares I did it and I am happy with my time. I cant believe I am training for a marathon!!!
Mike played soccor with the kids while I ran and then when I was finished he ran 2 miles while the kids and I did yoga. I love that my 3 and 4 year old try so hard and enjoy themselves. I feel really good about being a mom on days like today. I am always disgusted by the "youre selfish if you workout after you have kids" people. YUCK.
After we got home I had a grain meat sausage and a cucumber and tomato salad. Water water water all day long, and I just had a green smoothie and some pistachios. Dinner is a mystery.
