Hey ladies -

5 weeks: 164.0
6 weeks: 165.2
7 weeks: 166.0
8 weeks: 166.8
9 weeks: 166.4

I was happy the scale went down a little, starting to get paranoid about gaining too much too early! Finally starting to get a sour stomach, wouldn't call it morning sickness persay, but I have no prior experience to base it off of. I was very fortunate my previous pregnancies :)

Hope everyone's having a good week and getting their holiday plans in order. I'm already freaking out, as soon as Thanksgiving hits I feel like the entire holiday season goes so fast and I'm always behind the ball with Christmas shopping/planning etc.

Jeni/Wills - Hi! I'd imagine this board is going to be slow until the holidays are over, everyone's so busy!

Ok so todays workout was thwarted by a pulled muscle in my neck! I am so glad I have muscle relaxers right now. I cant take them unil I get mak from school, but they will help.

I am working hard at the gym. I do cardio one day and weight training the next, with a little cardio. Had a training session and learned some stuff. Hopefully I am on the right track. I feel like I have worked when I leave. The stairmaster is my new "friend"...NOT!! But it is very effective. Hope this is the key.

I have been so off track so far this week. So my weigh-in was horrible. I was back up to 183.5. I'm holding on to so much water weight. I'm really excited though, there is now a Zumba game for Wii that I believe comes out today. I pre-ordered it the other day so I should get it early next week! I love to dance so I'm hoping it will give me more motivation to exercise. I have been so stressed out lately between work and school. Then today has been so frustrating. My two kids have 4 tests tomorrow and they knew everything perfectly the past 2 days, then all of a sudden today they can't remember how to do any of it! I'm gonna try to squeeze some extra math time in instead of doing Accelerated Reader since they have already met their goal. I know one kid's grandparents were in town last night, so his mom probably didn't do any work with him. The other child, I think his mom has just given up with studying with him at home. She complained about it the other day because he doesn't work as well for her as he does with me, so I think she just decided she's only going to go over things with him the day before the tests. By the way, both of these parents work at the school with me so they know exactly what they're supposed to be doing. Well time for me to stop ranting.

On a good note, my mom is going to share her spa gift card with me!! It's a $250 gift card for a great spa here in New Orleans. We're each going to get an 80 minute massage! I can't wait.

Hey lovelies! I hope everyone is doing okay.

I'm officially moved into my little house! I need to get some storage so I can finish unpacking and I have to get some new cookware and utensils. Pullo seems to like it and sometime this week, I'll be getting two kitties to add to the family. :)

Oh and I got my first tattoo! :dance:

I missed my WI last week cause my scale (which has been packed up for like five months) had a dead battery. I brought some new ones so I'm all set for WI tomorrow!

Hopefully, I can update sooner. Less than a month left in the semester so I'll be at school way more and will have internet access.

:wave: You know MM~Holiday time is slow time.

I am betting back to my eating right AND I am feeling really good. Maybe its just the high you get from seeing the scale moving. It has a long way to go to get back to where I was 6 months ago, but I feel like I am going back in the right direction.

Gottta get to bed.

Hey ladies -

Just checking in - got a new washer and dryer yesterday, yay! So sad the things I get excited about as an adult :) Foods good, weight's staying steady, heard the baby's heartbeat on the doppler so all is well! Enjoy the rest of your weekend ladies!

Today was good, but somebody put Daves insanity sauce in my salad dressing as a joke. I did NOT think it was funny. It made my nosebleed. So I didn't get enough to eat today.

But all is good.

This past week has been horrible. I have not been counting calories or keeping track of water, plus TOM came this week, plus I've been stressed out about all the school work I have to do this coming week. Turns out I had one of the due dates for a paper wrong and it is actually due Monday Nov. 30 instead of Monday Dec. 6. So I now have 2 major projects due within a week. I have this week off of work, I have a new food journal coming in tomorrow, and my new Zumba Wii game should be coming in tomorrow too!! So I will make sure all food and water gets logged this week, and hopefully the Zumba game will give me the motivation to workout. TOM is over, the bloat is gone, and I'm ready to get back on track with both eating right and school work. Hoping the allergies go away soon so I can breathe fully again.
