Aug 29 - Sep 3 (36 weeks)

36 weeks - canary melon
Monday - 36 weeks today, Officially full term! Almost done with this pregnancy, I can make it. Corey left for Brazil today, he'll be back the 8th. Tried to jog this morning but tummy was super tight, so I listened to my body and walked more. Did one mile in 14 min, then had to take kids to band. After I got home I decided to do upperbody for today instead of cardio, will try to do jog again tomorrow. Upperbody workout was this:
Weight after workout was 178.4. With Owen at 36 weeks weight was 183.6
Tuesday - Had a great morning. Treadmill cardio from 5:30 - 6:15, did 3 miles in 35:48. Did a 4 minute warm up, then kept it at 5.5 - 6 mph pace most of the time (10 to 11 minute mile). Did a 7 mph pace for 1 minute two times near the end, feeling good today! weight was 176.4
Wednesday - Did 12 minutes of planks at 6 am, then a bit of stretching. 9:30 pm did circuit of squats, deadlifts, then calf raises, all with 30 lb dumbbells, 22 reps, 14 reps, then 24 for total of 60 reps each.
Thursday - 3 miles in 38:45. The treadmill kept slipping again, when it slips it feels like trying to run and stepping on a piece of paper on a wood floor. Not good, I don't want to fall. So the first mile and a half were mostly walking, then I decided to just hold on to one of the hand rails and jog and was able to finish the last mile and a half at over a 10 min pace/6 mph. So I was glad I was able to keep it under 40 minutes. Got nice and sweaty
Friday - Upper body:
Saturday - 3 miles in 42:06

Aug 22 - 27 (35 weeks)

35 weeks - honeydew
Monday - 35 weeks today. When I was 35 weeks pregnant with Owen, that was the week we came home from Brazil. I hadn't weighed myself the whole time we were gone. When we got home I did and I was 186. Today I was 178, so that is encouraging to me that I'm doing better than last time. This morning I did 3 miles on the treadmill. I went so fast last time, I made a mental note to try and beat my time every time but after 1.5 miles I realized I wasn't on pace to do it. This time I was doing 2 minute walk (3 mph=20 min pace) 2 minutes at 4 miles per hour, 2 min at 5 mph, 2 min at 6mph, then back to a walk. I did want to atleast get below 40 minutes, so I had to push it the last mile, esp the last 10 minutes, even jogged a 7 min pace the last 90 seconds! Go me. Barely finished in time:
Then I walked for a "lap" and ended up with 3.25 miles in 45 minutes.
Tuesday - Lower body - 12 minutes of planks at 5:30 am, rest of lower body around 11 o'clock:
Wednesday - I was up and jogging at 5:30 am. Took a break after 20 minutes/1.67 miles to say bye to the high school duo, then finished up my 3 miles for a time total of 34:39! Not bad for 35 weeks pregnant. Jogged most of the time at 5 or 6 mph, a little while at 7 mph too. Think I can keep this up for 3 more weeks?
Thursday - Usual BFL style upper body, done at 7:10 am, go me
  • Back - reverse push ups
  • Shoulders - usual upward press - weights 10, 12, 15, 20, 15, then 15 upward rows
  • Triceps - one dumbbell - 20, 25, 25, 30, 25, chair dips 12 reps
  • Biceps - the usual BFL curls then 12 hammer curls with 15 lbs.
  • Chest - push ups
Friday - 7 am, just finished 3 miles, 35:21, did the last 10 minutes at 6mph, did 7 miles for 1 minute early on, but maybe I was dragging my feet after that, cause next few times I tried the tread kept slipping off the rollers. Gotta pick up my feet
Saturday - busy day, lots of interruptions. Nice to sleep in this morning. Now it's time for bed, but first I did calf raises at 8:45 pm, then up to do planks at 9:00, then read scriptures with the kids, now it's 10:10 and I'm going to do 60 deadlifts with two 30 lb dumbbells and then walk around the neighborhood and do 200 walking lunges. I shall return and report...
Deadlifts - done at 10:18
Lunges - finished and all done 10:36, goodnight!

Aug 15 - 20 (34 weeks)

34 weeks - cantaloupe
Monday - 34 weeks today, 5 to go! That almost feels close. Got up early and did cardio, 3 miles on the Weslo treadmill. Did 3 minutes walk then 3 min jog, alternated until finished 3 miles, took 47:30
Tuesday - I was in a funk today, Owen was clingy, not looking forward to the school mornings, I already miss summer. Did upper body tonight at 10 pm, just a quick plow through - 60 reps each:
Wednesday - woke up at 5 to wake up Joseph and Mel for their first day of school. Tried to fall back asleep for a few minutes, but then figured I could get half of my cardio done... did one mile/15 minutes on the NordicTrak treadmill, then paused said goodbye to them, woke up Ethan and Hyrum, went outside to do 130 walking lunges (still needed to make those up for last Saturday) Then finished 2 more miles. Total time: 41:34!
I even did 6 minute pace a few times! Broke a good sweat, feeling good, maybe this school year won't suck after all if I use my time wisely. We gotta go to bed earlier though, I wasn't asleep until after midnight last night.
Thursday - Went to bed at 10:30 last night, woke up at 5:45, didn't have a ton of energy, maybe it was too much sleep than I'm used to? Did 12 min of planks at 6:30, then after they kids left for school I did lower body in the basement - calf raises BFL style, 60 deadlifts with 2/30 lbs, then 60 sumo squats with 2/30 lb dumbbells.
Friday - 3 miles in 38:56, I was surprised that I finished it in less than 40 min, I must have been going fast! I did 4 minutes at a walk (usually 3.4) then 6 min of a jog. Repeated until I was done at 7 am. pretty good 
Saturday - repeat of 7/19/16 Tuesday workout

Then for the 4th time I did 6 minutes walking, then finished off the 3 miles with jogging at 4.4, but also did one min at 5.4 to try and get it over with, not bad self!

Aug 1 - 6 (32 weeks)

32 weeks - napa cabbage
Monday - Officially 8 months today. Weight this morning 177.4.  AND it's also August, which means I am due "next month!" that is nice to say. Sounds better than "September" cause September still feels forever away, but maybe just maybe I'll make it. We are up in Park City this week, I came down this morning for a dr. appointment, gained 2 pounds, nothing else to report there. Got up at 5:30 and did a 3 mile walk on the treadmill in the Marriott's gym while I read 3 conference talks. I'd listen to music by my earphones aren't working. Like I connect them and my phone says they're connected but no sound comes out. Sad. So did 3 miles in 53 minutes, pretty good.
Tuesday - Upper body workout - nice to use the gym here. I didn't have my phone or a paper with me to write down what I did, but here is what it is to the best of my memory:
Back (stationary lat pull) - 55, 70, 85, 100, 85, 85
Chest (press) - 55. 70, 85, 100, 85, 85
Quad (leg curls, making up from Saturday) - 60 reps of 55 lbs
Triceps 35, 45, 50, 55, 50, 50
Biceps 30, 40, 45, 50, 45, hammer curls 2/15 lbs
Shoulder (upwards row) 10, 12, 15, 20, 15, shoulder press 15
Wednesday - 3 miles. Did one mile and accidentally touched "finish workout" with my knuckle as I got my phone, it wouldn't let me continue, so took a pic
Did another mile and then hit pause to grab a towel, was gone for 5 seconds and some guy got on the treadmill. I didn't make a stink, but went to the treadmill to get my phone and then went outside for a 20 minute walk up and down Empire street. Took a pic of the house where my grandpa used to live.
Thursday - Lower body
Friday - 3 mile treadmill walk
Saturday - Upper body, tried to do the same as Tues, but must not have remembered the correct weight I did for some of those, cause that chest workout would have been way too heavy. Today I enjoyed my last morning at the gym at 6:30, I did:
Back - fixed pull down (lat pull) that was the same as Tuesday: 55, 70, 85, 100, 85, 85
Chest (press) - 40, 55. 70, 85, 70, 55 - that was really heavy and hard, no way I did 100 on Tues.
Triceps 35 (really easy), 45, 50, 55, 50, 50. The tricep machine is awkward to use/hold
Shoulder (upwards row) 10, 12, 15, 20, 15, shoulder press 15
Biceps curl machine: 30, 40, 50, 55, then 24 reps of 50
done at 7:15
