Jul 16 - 21 (13 weeks)

13 weeks - meyer lemon
Monday - 13 weeks done today, baby the size of an egg or a meyer lemon. In 2015 with Owen, my weight was 148.6 lbs. Today I was 144.2. Did a 2 mile treadmill walk/sprint, did four 1 minute sprints, woo! Mile 1 was 15 minutes, then took a bathroom break, mile 2 was 13 minutes. Then did 9 min of this Zgym workout, Summer Shred #12, that dragon hold is killer.
Tuesday - 12 minutes of planks and tried the dragon hold again, just got 10 seconds
Wednesday - Treadmill walk/sprint from 1:45 - 2:20 (only one interruption) did 2 miles in 26:55 with four 1 min sprints. Dragon hold for 14 seconds, almost 15! Stretching, broke a real good sweat
Thursday - 11:45 at night but I got it in - did this 35 minute "Legs Like a Dancer #1" workout in ZGYM, it was great, and a workout I'll be able to do as my tummy gets bigger with the pregnancy, yay! And I'm 4 for 4 this week for working out, go me! I'm gonna get all 6 days this week for the first time since the end of May... May 21-26 was the last time I did a workout all 6 days of the week, I'm glad to be back on my game.

Jul 9 - 14 (12 weeks)

12 weeks - Passion fruit
Monday -  12 weeks today. Did a morning flow for my morning routine, yay.
Tuesday - nothing. I need to start getting in movement in the morning or it doesn't happen, but this morning we were prepping for Natalie's birthday.
Wednesday - nothing. Didn't get it done in the morning and thus didn't happen - this morning I had to take Wes down to meet the bus in American Fork for his jazz band tour.
Thursday - Started to take iron - I remembered I get anemic when I'm pregnant, that might account for the super low energy I've had this week. Goal today: take a 20 min walk. I did it from 9:39 - 10:09 pm tonight as I took Daniel on a walk.
Friday - I feel better already, I'm hoping iron was the trick. Exercised today at 8 am! Did the Zgym Stretch & Tone Cardio #12, felt great. Then a little resistance - 60 reps of each of the following:
  • laying chest press with 2/15 lb dumbbells
  • laying tricep extensions 2/12 lb
  • shoulder side raises 2/8 lbs
  • hammer curls 2/15 lbs
  • back rows 2/15 lbs

Jul 2 - 7 (11 weeks)

11 weeks - brussel sprout
Monday - 11 weeks done. At 11 weeks when I was preg with Owen I wasn't doing much, I didn't do much last week but want to do more this week, going to keep it simple for myself with just walking, planks, and maybe some BFL resistance.... It's 1:30 pm, I haven't done anything yet except I did do one pull up, yay. I'll do something and check back later.... (later...) at 11:55 I was laying down with Owen to help him fall asleep, and I did 12 minutes of planks while I waited, he was asleep when I was done, yay, win, I did some exercise today!
Tuesday - nothing, doh! I had plans to, I joined zgym tonight. Tomorrow I'll do double to make up.
Wednesday - Happy 4th of July. Did a 3k Fun run this morning with my little girls, plus walked to and back from the church, so we'll count that as 2 miles. Then when we got home I did some upper body resistance mostly BFL style (Body for Life) of increasing weight as decreasing reps - 12 reps, then 10, 8, 6, 12, and switch exercise for same muscle group for 12 more:
  • back - I started with 1 pull up, yay, I can still barely do one... to continue at end
  • biceps - weight was with two dumbbells of 8, 10, 12, 15, 4 reps w/20lbs, 12 w/15, then hammer curls 12 reps with 2/15
  • lying tricep extensions 8, 10, 12, 15, 12, then 12 reps overhead with 1/30
  • push ups on toes, most on toes, last 24 on knees
  • shoulders - seated press 10, 12, 15, 20, 15, then 12 reps of upward rows with 2/15
  • back - superman t up pules - 60 reps with 2.5 lbs
Thursday - Look at me go - it's 10:37 AM and I just finished my workout! Yeah! I did 2 miles on the treadmill today - took me 25:56, I beat my time from last Saturday by 25 seconds, go me. I did four 1 minute sprints during that, now I'm going to go take a bath for the first time in 3 days, I need it, but I wanted to workout first, so yay, I did it. Just a light overall soreness in my upper body from yesterdays workout, so that's perfect - not like that 7 day struggle walking after the Melissa Ioja thing on Friday three weeks ago, that's just crazy. No more 30 min resistance workouts for me unless I'm training. True, I did feel slightly empowered after I finished it, but what's the point of that if I'm feeling like an old hobbling lady for the next 7 days. Nope
Friday - I was doing so good this week, but didn't workout today. We spent the day cleaning before i let the kids pack up for Scofield, and then headed out for a weekend of fun with neighbors.
Saturday - no workout, but I did get a major burning in my left leg while I was wake surfing. Pretty fun, I got up no prob three times, still figuring out how to surf though. It was fun, we had a good weekend with friends.

Jun 18 - 23

Monday - I am still freaking sore from Friday's workout! Usually if I do walking lunges I'll be sore for 1 day, but man, this is day 3 and they hurt just as bad as on Saturday. Next time I'm keeping Melissa's workout to 15 minutes. Or I'll atleast remember that if I do more than 20, there's a good chance I'll be hobbling around for the next 3 days. We stayed up late last night (1:30 am) talking with Joseph, it was fun, but we paid for it this morning. My Morning Routine is so off. Got thrown off during Newport and I haven't gotten it back on track yet. Doh
Tuesday - still sore, but almost not wincing as I go down stairs
Wednesday - still sore but bearable.
Thursday - still sore but I think I'll have recovered tomorrow. I haven't done jack this week exercise wise and I wish I could still get up for my morning walks in the mountains, but it will have to wait. For those who actually read all this type, I'll let you in on a secret that's not much of a secret cause I've been blabbing it to neighbors and my lady friends, but I'm taking magnesium again, if you're interested, feel free to click that link to figure out what that means. Oh I'll just say it, we're expecting again. Official announcement coming soon after we tell the kids some time in the next few days - I think Corey's said we can tell the kids before Joseph leaves, so that's on Tuesday. I'm sure the kids are already guessing though since I've been laying around and resting so much. Thankfully I'm not totally out of it dead, gracias to my magnesium again for pulling me through. Yeah, I don't feel great, but I'm not dead on the couch, so that's a win.
Friday - 12 minutes of planks in rotation in my closet - 3 rounds of 1 min each: center plank, left side, right side, and yoga table
Saturday -

Jun 11 - 16

Monday - I am off my game. The sun it up, but I'm hitting snooze, nooo.
Tuesday - Holly warm up, then did Melissa Ioja fit test. Here are my scores:
  1. Push ups - 18 toes, 10 knees
  2. Jump Squats - 38
  3. 4x4s (four high knees and four alt inside toe touches = 1) - 12
  4. Feet up then knee hugs (these were awkward for me) - 5
  5. lay down and knee drive - 18
  6. Jump Lunges - 34
  7. Burpees w/o push up - 11
  8. Forward touchdown backward touchdown - 14
  9. Elbow ups - 19
  10. Box jumps - 10
I'm going to try to do her 30 day challenge, so I'll come back here in 30-ish days to compare my score.
Wednesday - morning flow and five 30 second let downs
Thursday - no workout, but an very active day cleaning. Corey's birthday is tomorrow and he said he wanted a clean house (he wants a maid to come) so we kicked it in gear. The kids had the remains of a  big fort they built on Tuesday in the front room. The whole house was trashed though, looks much better now.
Friday - 10 let downs on the hour throughout the day starting at 7 am. Also at 8:00 I started Melissa Ioja workout Day 1 Survival of the Fittest. I did 10 rounds, took me over 30 minutes. Each round consisted of:
  • 5x of jump lunge right, jump lunge left, jump squat = 1 
  • 5x of left shoulder press, right shoulder press, both shoulders press, shoulder side raise = 1(I used 2/15 for the first 4 rounds, then 2/10 for the next 6 rounds)
  • 15x of lower than parallel squats with 1/30 lb
  • 3x of 3 wide bicep curls, 3 standard curls, 3 hammer curls = 1 
I did most of my rounds in about 3 minutes. Quickest round was 2:42, longest was 3:14. I'm sweaty! That hasn't happened for a while. Good workout.
Saturday - I. Can't. Walk. My arms are fine from yesterdays workouts, but my legs, oh boy. I did them a number yesterday. I didn't do anything today except try to walk up and down stairs without having to grit my teeth.

Jun 4 - 9

Monday - Back after a week in California, I didn't exercise at all while we were gone other than a few morning flows. Although I did break my most steps record on the day we were at California Adventure. This morning when on a 60 min walk on the Little Cottonwood trail.
Tuesday - Jog with Hyrum at Dimple Dell, 40 minutes. Then did 60 reps of bicep swings with shoulder press, 2/15 lbs.
Wednesday - Walk with Wesley in the mountains, lovely morning. I got invisalign braces on today, it is recommended that I keep them in for 22 hours, so that means only 2 hours to eat during the day = no more mindless snacking or munching on whatever! I'm going to have to be very intentional with my food, which will be a pain kinda but I guess is a good thing!
Thursday - 30 minute walk this morning, got some lovely honeysuckle blossoms to smell today. I'm just getting back into the swing of things after our vacation, going to try to do resistance again today.
Friday -short hike in the mountains for date night, yay, we had a picnic by the river, it was great
Saturday - short walk to the church, that was it.
