So, we've officially told the kids and Corey's mother.  We told the kids there's another baby on the way on Christmas Eve.  Melodie is praying for twins, a boy and a girl, cause she wants to keep the boy-girl ratio even.  Funny.  Corey said "NO praying for twins!!"  Going to tell my mom in a little bit.  I am 11 weeks and 4 days along in my 40 week journey.  Due July 15th. 

I've been so sick this month, it's been quite miserable, but I almost feel normal today and I didn't cough at all last night.  Please let it be over.

Plank Rotations 1 minute

I've been sick the past 2 weeks, but felt I had enough energy yesterday to do 12 minutes of planks.

1 min center plank
1 min side plank left - on elbow
1 min side plank right - on elbow
yoga table

repeat 2 more times - total of 3 times for 12 minutes.

I already felt better after doing them, cause laying around being lazy was making my muscles ache,especially my shoulders, which is where I carry my stress I've been told.  I hate not being able to exercise.

So, 10 weeks along on Monday.  1/4th of the way there!

Repeat 4 times:
  • 10 divebombers
  • 10 push ups on toes
I did 2 sets around 4:00, then we had a busy evening, but are home now and I'm gonna do the next two sets before I go to bed, one set before I brush my teeth, the other set after.

400 Cleaning Lunges

I've been slightly off the wagon, but felt decent today and did 400 walking lunges around my bedroom as I picked up clothes/toys/clutter off the ground.  Along with my exercise program falling flat the past few weeks, my house is also a wreck.  Not a pretty combination, hence the "cleaning lunges"

Corey doesn't want to officially announcing anything till Christmas, but I'm gonna say it here with the assumption that people in my family don't read this exercise blog.  If any of you do, I shall announce something in the way Corey gave a teaser to his Mom yesterday, but she's sharp anyway and I think she already knew cause of my appearance and slightly sluggish demeanor which I tried to hid a little, but kinda hard.  Anyway, Corey was talking with Joe about facebook/instagram and we said "we'll give you $1000 when you're 18 if you don't use it", which Joe turned down, Joe said "Mom said $1000 is nothing." - "Well, not for us, but it's a lot for a teenager."  and Corey said "$1000 isn't a lot when you've got 9 kids..." and he gave his mom a little smile and she caught it (we only currently have 8 children).  Anyway, so I said "So can I tell people now?"  "No, not until Christmas."  blah, ok.  (I'm due July 15th)
