Here I am..

just feeling a bit in limbo...ready to have this baby, but still so much work and school stuff to do! Yes, I realize I will never have everything done...but, I'd like to be as close as possible.

Naturally, I am excited to finally meet the little guy I've been carrying around all these months. But, the other thing I am really excited about is working out again!

Not the pansy ass little neighborhood walks...I'm talking REAL WORKOUTS.

The legs and arms like jello, achey muscles the next day, kick my ass kind of workouts. :-)

I am undecided on the running though. My 1st goal will be to lose the baby weight. Sure, running will help me burn calories and all that, but I also want to focus on strength training and getting my core stronger. Before I found out I was preggo, I was having a lot of issues with my lower back...the PT hottie said it was all about building a stronger core. I really want to vary my workouts though - some bike, some swimming, some running. To be honest, I miss my bike more than I miss running. Probably because it was still new to me when I had to stop...kind of that "honeymoon" phase. The running had gotten old...partially because I was burned out from the same old routine and not having enough time to really dedicate to it. The good news is that as of August 16, I will be done with school (not that I'm counting the days or anything)!!!!!!!! Yes, I will have an additional child, but I will have a bit more time to dedicate to working out again. Wooohooo!!!

So, I am up in the air - join a gym? get a trainer? try a new home routine (maybe the P90X? TurboJam looks fun too.)? With the recent move (and the increase in gas prices), I am tinkering with the idea of joining Woodlands Fit....although, I'll admit that the entire time I've been in school I've been wanting to try Kenyan Nights (the morning program doesn't work with the hubby working nights) or a Bootcamp at Memorial Park in addition to Houston Fit. I dunno, I guess I'll wait and see. I may have to eventually change the name of this blog though. :-)

ETA: Just for Jamoosh, I changed the comments so that you no longer have to worry about the word verification...which, as he pointed out, it pretty pointless when your blog is password protected. So now, my 1.8 readers have it easier! :-p

Did you say Woodlands Fit? Did you move up to the Woodlands? Did I miss reading something somewhere? For some reason, I've always thought you lived in side the loop. Just goes to show how much I know.

Woodlands Fit?? You could be with several of us bloggers if you did!! We'd love to have you join us! And I had no idea you were in this area either...

With Jamoosh, Holden, Me, and several others, I know you have more than 1.8 readers..

Moms are always running, so there is no need to give up your blog name!

Champions Fit! It's close to you! Very, very close. That's not fair to join Woodlands Fit - they already have all the fun people.

We have no other bloggers in our group. Well, there is one who does intermittently, but he's very sporadic.

Please, oh please oh please oh please drive down Cypresswood to 249 instead!!!

Too funny about the word verification - I always think the same things on the other blogs that are private (you aren't the only one). I think everyone needs to fork out $8 a month and have their own domain name anyway though...

Ref Comment Verification - You are so sweet! I get so behind on reading blogs lately that I half expect to come to your and see a picture of a baby!!!

If you do Woodlands Fit I am in like flynn? I think it goes like that. We totally have to get on the bike together whenver you are ready. Swimming you have to whip me in to it. I quit it too easily. I am making all these workout plans for us yet we have'nt met. I am just so stoked to have a possible training pard :-)
