My Fitness Routine During Pregnancy – Baby #2

My first pregnancy with my daughter was fairly comfortable (as far as pregnancies go), I had a good amount of energy for the most part, and I had a really great labor (5 1/2 hours total and she was here!). I truly think the reason for all this is because I exercised my entire pregnancy. So this time I plan to do the same – mostly. The first trimester is a just-do-whatever-you-can time for me. I did whatever I could…

First Trimester Recap – Baby #2

I’ve always heard people say that all pregnancies are different. This is definitely true in my case! I am already 17 weeks and into the second trimester but wanted to share how the first trimester went in this second pregnancy. It was definitely different in many ways and honestly, a lot harder. I wrote a post about how I found out I was pregnant with this baby and how during the marathon I noticed I kept feeling short of breath….

In The Trenches

I’m always 8 steps behind (maybe 10, maybe even 20). I can’t keep up. My thought process the other day when a little like this: I have to get my clothes to the dry cleaners by tonight or they won’t be ready by Tuesday and then I won’t have anything to wear for work. But I need to pick up diapers for Ady. I will do all this on the way home. But I need to be home by 4:30…

Getting Things Done as a Working Mom

I’ve only been a mom now for 15 months but I’ve learned a LOT during that time. I’m still learning and I’m sure this will continue for many years. The biggest adjustment to having a child is simply not having enough time. To do anything! I’m a working mom and this post is in no way meant to be offensive towards stay at home moms. I was one for 10 months and that job is HARD. I have been working…

The first time I didn’t feel guilty

I know I’ve talked about mom guilt before and it is ROUGH. I have had a really hard time adjusting to this since becoming a mom. Anything and everything can make me feel guilty. If I’m doing something other than spending time with my daughter, I feel like I’m a bad mom. But the truth is I’m not. I’m human. And just because I do something without her or doing something for myself, doesn’t make me a terrible mom. It’s…

The perfect sports bra has been found!

I told you recently that I am now a Brick Betty Fit Professional and I’m still very excited about this new adventure! As I learn more and more about this company, I thrive on the passion, quality, and excitement they bring to their clothing line. Recently, I tried out the Brick Betty bra. It looked great on the website but of course seeing it in your hands is always different than on the internet. The very first thing I noticed…
