July 25 - 30 (31 weeks)

31 weeks - long as a leek
Monday - 31 weeks today. 172.4, that's what I was at 25 weeks, so good job me, I'm maintaining. 3 mile walk this morning. Actually, 2 mile walk, then emergency bathroom stop at home, (had one of those last week too, I might need to make a shorter route closer to home that I can do laps on, but going around the block 12 times just sounds painful...) then another mile/20 minutes to finish it up.
Tuesday - 12 minutes of planks this morning at 8:30 am, then had a busy day, did lower body at 6:30 pm - 60 calf raises with 30 lb dumbbells, 60 deadlifts with 30 lbs, then 60 sumo squats with 30 lbs.
Wednesday - 3 mile walk from 6:20 - 7:20, jogged for 5 minutes (as well as I can right now anyway)
Thursday - upper body, did first three exercises around 6pm, finished up with biceps and triceps at 11:30 pm.
Friday - 3 mile/1 hour walk, 6:15 to 7:15
Saturday - 20 deadlifts and then 20 calf raises, both with 30 lbs, repeated 3 times for 60 reps each, then 12 minutes of planks. Will do lunges or something for quads on Monday

July 18 - 23 (30 weeks)

30 weeks - large cabbage

Monday - 30 weeks today, yay, down to the last 9 weeks, hooray for single digits. Weight this morning 174.4. Seems like I've been pregnant for a very long time. I've been pregnant 97 weeks of my life so far, will be 99 when I'm done with this little man. That's a lot of months. Went on a 3 mile walk this morning, jogged for over 8 minutes.
Tuesday - Got up to do my lifting early, usually I sleep in a little too much on weight training days and don't get to it until later. So from 7 - 8 am, did BFL Upper body, here's a pic of what I did, easier than typing it up :)
Wednesday - 3 mile walk this morning from 6:10 - 7:10, and remembered to stretch when I got home too
Thursday - Lower body: calf raises, went outside to do 300 walking lunges, deadlifts, then planks. My legs were shaky from the lunges and I could hardly hold the planks cause of my legs
Friday - morning walk to Bell Canyon trail head, 6:29 - 7:30
Saturday - Went to the temple this morning, so besides today I did my workouts this week each morning, pretty good. And it's good I do them early, cause the day slips by if I don't. 11:57 pm right now and I just finished up an upper body workout. Not totally BFL style, but that's cause I'm in a time crunch. Did 60 reps of each of the following:

  • triceps - 60 sitting press with one 25 lb dumbbell
  • biceps - 60 sitting curls with two 15 lb dumbbells
  • chest - 60 push ups on knees
  • back - 60 bending over pulls with two 25 lb dumbbells
  • shoulders - 60 side raises with two 8 lb dumbbells

July 11 - 16 (29 weeks)

29 weeks - large butternut squash
Monday - 29 weeks today. 174.8 - had my Dr appointment this morning, only gained 2 pounds, that's an improvement upon last months' 12 pound gain. Everything else looked good. Was a busy day, only did 12 minutes of planks. Will do lower body tomorrow
Tuesday - Got up with energy at 5:15 (we went to bed early last night!) (well, early for us = 11) Did BFL Lower body, but a little different cause it was in a circuit - so did 12 reps (w15 lb dumbbells) of deadlifts, calf raises, and static lunges, then did 10 reps all of those with 20 lbs, then 8 with 25, 6 with 30 (my forearms were burning from holding the weight) then 12 of those followed by 12 more deadlifts, 12 pulse calf raises, and 12 squats with weight. Then did a 3 mile walk from 6:05 - 7:05
Wednesday - Upper body after dinner tonight. I don't want to type it all up though, I'll snap a picture of it later...
Thursday - 3 mile morning walk 5:55 - 6:57
Friday - Had a hard time getting going today. 1:30 pm finally did BFL Lower body - 12 minutes of planks in circuit, then did deadlifts, calf raises, and will do walking lunges tomorrow on my walk.
Saturday - went on a walk at 6:40, 250 walking lunges at 6:50 for 15 minutes, home at 8:00.

July 4 - 9 (28 weeks)

28 weeks - kabocha squash
Monday - Happy Fourth of July! 28 weeks today, baby is about 2.5 pounds. Weight 174.6. (was 157.4 with Hyrum in 2003, oh the good ol' days...) I have 11 weeks to go. Had the holiday Fun Run this morning, I pushed Owen and Natalie in the stroller, they weren't too heavy, but I generally don't like to push a stroller for a workout, thus it didn't count. I could have done the whole thing if I didn't have Lily and Sophi walking with me. We were dead last, until we took a short cut that cut about half of distance out :) Abi was a bit amazed that I had gotten ahead of her when she had been running the whole time! I did break a major sweat when I walked home with them at 10:30, it was a hot day! Tonight I did a BFL upper body workout (was supposed to be on Sat, but we were gone at Scofield). The numbers below are the weight. Reps for each are 12, 10, 8, 6, 12, then 12 of a different exercise for same group of muscles.
  • 1) Shoulders standing press with two dumbbells: 8, 10, 15, 20, 15, upward rows 15
  • 2) Chest - push ups fast on knees, slow on knees, 8 fast on toes, 6 slow on toes, 12 fast, chest press with two 20 lb. 
  • 3) Tricep extensions, one dumbbell: 20, 25, 30, 30 slow, 30, chair dips
  • 4) Bicep curls - two dumbbells: 10, 12, 15, 20, 15, hammer curls 15
  • 5) Back - mower rows with one dumbbell alternate each arm: 20, 25, 30, 40, 30, back flys with two 8 lb.
Tuesday - 3 mile/1 hour walk from 6:02 - 7:04.
Wednesday - BFL Lower body - first did 12 minutes of planks, then calf raises, then deadlifts. Will finish it up by doing 200 walking lunges tomorrow on my morning walk.
Thursday - 3 mile walk, took a small loop around the school parking lot near the beginning of it for my 200 lunges. It's a small parking lot to do lunges around so I didn't get much of a break to shake it out after each 50. Probably gonna feel it tomorrow.
Friday - BFL upper body. I might need to get a gym membership to give me some variety on my exercises. Or we need to get a little more equipment. Today I did:
  • 1) Triceps laying (lying?) extensions, two dumbbells: 10, 12, 15, 20, 15, 15 chair dips, knees way bent. Chair dips totally kill me!
  • 2) Chest - laying chest press on bed (wasn't able to go very deep with my arms on the bed, need a bench...) two dumbbells: 12, 15, 20, 30, 25, push ups - 11 on toes, one on knees. 
  • 3) Shoulders - side raises. nice and slow with two dumbbells of these pounds: 5, 8, 10, 12, 10, then 12 standing upward press with two 15 lb dumbbells
  • 4) Back - reverse push ups on a bar I had. No weight, my legs gave out before my arms (sore from yesterday!) final 12 reps were mower rows with 30 lb dumbbell for each arm.
  • 5) Bicep curls, two dumbbells of: 10, 12, 15, 20, 15, hammer curls 15
Natalie and Abi exercised with me :) Natalie looks like she's doing a good concentration curl in this picture, funny! Cute kids. 

Saturday -
