My Little Lyla is 18 months today! Pregnancy update.
Lyla has developed so many amazing milestones in the last 3-5 months. She went from crawling to walking, she is now saying so many words and repeating us, and is just the cutest most affectionate little girl. It's so weird when I actually sit down and think about her how emotional I get. She means the absolute world to me and it's so hard for me to imagine that I can ever love any child as much as her. I almost feel bad for the baby inside me because I am so in love with Lyla. I have talked to several moms and I guess this is a common feeling. But once the next baby comes you fall in love all over again. Which is so hard to imagine for me because my heart is filled with my Lyla.
11 Weeks Pregnant and my Kettlebell Workout (will provide a picture soon)
So all the morning sickness talk was not even morning sickness. It turns out I had Salmonella poisoning. The baby and I are fine but it was not a fun week. I lost over 8 pounds that week and was so depleted. I have now gained it all back but it hasn't been easy. I am just now starting to be able to work out again. That little set back put me behind and it really did a number on my emotions. When you are pregnant you NEED to do some type of workout for your mental well being and I was unable to do that. Therefore my body and mind were depressed and tired. I had to change my eating habits because I couldn't even stomach anything "healthy". I ended up eating pizza twice for the first time in over a year along with other not so healthy foods. Wow it tasted good but my stomach sure didn't like it. So I have managed to get myself back on track now that I am feeling better. WOO HOOO!
Here is a workout I did with my class today. It felt really good and balanced.
Double Suitcase Deadlifts 16kg's 12 reps x 3
Kettlebell Push Ups 5 reps x 3
Swings 16kg 20 reps x 3
Pullovers 12kg 12 reps x 3
Clean and; Press 12kg 6 rep per side x 3
