I got a wonderful pre-Thanksgiving blessing this past Wednesday!! We had ANOTHER ultrasound to check on the "bleeding" and it's GONE!!! So the "reduced" exercise and "no weight lifting" WORKED!!! I can come back to "normal" exercise with "medium" weight lifting....WOO HOO! GOD is GOOD all the time!
Truly, I haven't let myself grow "too attached" as a means of "protecting my feelings", but everything is "NORMAL" at this point!

When I saw the baby moving (flipping and kicking) and there were NO SIGNS of bleeding I started to cry...a HUGE weight was LIFTED off my heart and shoulders...and I felt this little baby literally FILL my heart! We have another ultrasound planned for Dec 23rd to check on things...and of course FIND OUT the sex!

For now LIFE is good...and about to get even better...tomorrow we head for SUNNY FLORIDA! DISNEYWORLD here we come!
Can't wait to see the boys faces when they see MAGIC KINGDOM!

Hope everyone had a WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING!!! Know get back to the EXERCISE routine and eating HEALTHY foods!

Here are my boys LOVING hanging out with their second cousins! The girls maybe not "loving" it as much!

Exercise is WONDERFUL for you at ANY PHASE of your life....but especially while expecting a bundle of joy. I am 13 1/2 weeks along with my 3 child and of course I'm exercising!! However, I've had to "tone it down" these last few weeks due to a complication (no worries baby is fine....just need to get SCH (bleeding in uterus) to GO AWAY! It's been there since 6 weeks...which is why I couldn't run the half marathon I trained for on 10-10-10! It reduced in size signficantly while not running and decreasing weights in bodypump...but it is STILL THERE. So... I've been told to SLOW DOWN and NOT PUSH IT! EASY to say...but HARD to DO! It's been 10 days...and I've just taught 3 classes....doing LOW IMPACT OF COURSE and MORE MOTIVATING than SWEATING...but PRAYING on Wednesday the ultrasound will SHOW that it's GONE! Ready to get back to "normal"!
So... are you getting your SWEAT SESSIONS IN??? If not... do one for me...PLEASE!!! IF you are expecting...check out this article of the BENEFITS (as I've been missing them)!
Hoping you are well!

Hike to the HEAVENS!

We have celebrated fall with a WONDERFUL long week-end getaway to Gatlinburg TN with some friends! To get some EXERCISE and enjoy the BEAUTIFUL scennary we decided to go on a little hike. It was JUST 2 MILES!! What we didn't really see at the BEGINNING of the TRAIL was this sign!!! Hubby said (after the hike) "Oh, I saw that sign, but thought we'd be ok!" SERIOUSLY!!! With all those kids and NO SNACKS, a couple of water bottles!!!
Check out the sign!!


LOOK AT HOW STEEP IT WAS....the guys went up...not even to the it was SCARY....we stopped with 5 kids at the "base" of the Rock! Literally we could see the "TOP" but NO-WAY to take the kids ROCK CLIMBING!

NOW check out the GROUP picture AFTER THE "little hike"! WHICH TOOK 4 HOURS! ONLY 1 KID STANDING!!!
WE had the BEST JUICE BOX and GOLDFISH EVER!!! Well deserved SNACK after that!!

Hoping you are enjoying the HOLIDAY kick-start!!! KEEP THOSE CALORIES BURNING... change things up....maybe GO ON A HIKE! Just look for the SIGNS...and be prepared!

Life is good! ENJOY and STAY FOCUSED!

We have been enjoying fall... from pumpkin patches, hayrides, playing in the leaves, to trick or treating, and more. Life is never dull with 2 energetic little boys. Not to mention this little one inside my belly trying to suck some too!!!

How are things in your world??? Are you managing to stay on track with EXERCISE???
My Mommy and Me class JUST STARTED ANOTHER INCENTIVE!!! This is a GREAT way to help foster "sisterhood" within the class, help everyone set some goals, and ACCOMPLISH them, all while staying focused on getting their WORKOUTS in!
THe Holiday season is a true test of your commitment to HEALTH...we tend to let things "slip" and eat MORE CALORIES while exercising LESS! I'm DETERMINED not to let those that come to my classes "fall off the wagon"! I hope you'll decide to do the same and SET 3 GOALS for yourself over these next few weeks.

Ideally, you'll need to look at 3 aspects of your life- MIND, BODY, and SPIRIT! Identify one thing in each area and SET an OBTAINABLE yet CHALLENGING goal that can be completed in 6 weeks!!! To make it more "fun" and keep you "focused" ALLOW YOURSELF a special "treat" ONCE YOU COMPLETE THEM!!! Our class is required to meet AT LEAST 2 of 3 GOALS and attend class 8 out of 13 meetings. IF THE LADIES do this then their names will go into a drawing for AN EXPENSE PAID NIGHT AWAY on me!!!
I've agreed to DANGLE A CARROT in front of them..... 1 night stay, dinner for 2, breakfast for 2, and spa treatment for her at WEST BADEN SPRINGS HOTEL!!! It's one of my most favorite places..... JUST GOOGLE IT!
ANYWAY...that is their BIG INCENTIVE.... maybe you could CHOOSE to get a MANICURE/PEDICURE or indulge in a special outfit, or DATE NIGHT with hubby....whatever it is that MOTIVATES you to stay on TRACK!!!
So are you in????? I hope so!!! Let me know what your goals are!!!

Here is some of our fall fun at the HUBER's FARM!
