Weight Loss, Fitness & Health Weight Loss, Fitness & Health

I've decided...

That after this baby I, me, myself, will finally come first (within reason with a newb of course!). We're finishing out taxes and dh will be putting aside a certain amount for me to return to Crossfit this Fall once I'm cleared from my midwife (currently 20 weeks and due the beginning of July). I know none of you know how excited this makes me but good grief, I wanna bounce off the walls I'm so excited!

Crossfit is the ONLY thing that has helped me begin to lose the weight I need to lose. It'll also help get me back to pre-pregnancy shape and then some. My love for excersise, minus running, has come from this sport. I've learned to love the weights, gymnastics, all of it and have a chosen family of amazing friends now.

So for now, I'm going to do what I can at home but I'm looking forward to the end of the year. I'm finally putting myself first so I can always be there for my kids :)

That's awesome!!  I'd SOOO love to do CF- when I finish school (or income is better), I'll be all over it!!

Congratulations on your pregnancy!!  I love that you're using a midwife!!  I'm a nursing student right now, and my master's will be in midwifery.  =)

That's great! Ya know, though, you don't have to wait! What about prenatal yoga or aquafit? There are so many great gentle workouts you can do now!

I'm slowly adding excersise back in :) I couldn't the first half because of dehydration and exhaustion.
