Baby Number 3 Trimester 1 - Fitness Recap

I have been blessed with healthy pregnancies, that allowed me to run and remain active throughout the entire time.  With all fitness goals and routines, I consulted my Doctor and when running, made sure I stayed at a "conversational" pace. I am not a medical professional, this is just what I did with the clearance from my doctor.

I trained for and ran three Disney races during my first trimester. Glass Slipper Challenge (6 weeks)10K1/2 MarathonStar Wars Dark Side Half Marathon (14 weeks) Yoga:  I did yoga 2 to 3 times per week Goals for Trimester 2. 
Since it's starting to get really hot, and I don't have access to a treadmill anymore I won't be running. I don't feel comfortable with it, especially since I took a couple weeks off of running when we were packing up our apartment to move (Life Update here). 
I have been walking with the double jogger and continuing to do a lot of yoga and other strength training. My goal is to be active 3 to 4 times a …

Weekly Chase - May 2016

Well Friends, it's been a minute (or three) since I joined Mindy for the Weekly Chase.  If you read my Life Update, you understand why.

This weekend was jam packed with house hunting, going to the zoo, birthday pool party for Tita (Auntie), and church. Still haven't found the right house, but there really isn't anything available in our budget right now. We just have to be patient...

Here are my goals for the week.

1. Walk at least 2 mornings.
2. Yoga at least 2 times
3. Schedule pediatrician apts
4. Update doctors with new insurance

Question of the day: What's your favorite animal at the zoo?

Life Update - May 2016

Can I just tell you that my life as been literally insane since my last post . Well, actually since before that post. So allow me to share what's been going on in our lives.

The best way I can explain the crazy is to give a little timeline of the last couple of weeks.

Friday, April 14 - Announce Baby # 3!!  Hooray!!! On this day we left for Disney to run the Darkside Half Marathon, I also had a doctors appointment AND we got a phone call from a University in Miami offering my husband a position. (Pretty much the greatest day ever!)

Monday, April 17 - Start date agreed upon.

When we arrived home on April 17th, we started packing our home in Fort Myers right away because my husband would be starting a new job back home in Miami in three weeks. So, I spent every opportunity packing, packing, packing (at 4 months pregnant).

Saturday, April 30 - MOVING DAY! We spent Saturday moving back to Miami, cleaning our apartment and turning in the keys.

Monday, May 1st - Baby Appointment and 3 …
