There isn’t a whole lot to report at this stage of the game, but I know this will get more fun and interesting as I progress so I figure why not start now! Here is some stats for your reading pleasure. If you don’t care – skip to the bottom for my workouts.

- Total weight gain/measurements: +1
- Maternity clothes: No, not yet!
- Stretch marks: Goodness no (and I would hope everyone could answer no to that this early)
- Sleep: Pretty good except for the multiple bathroom breaks in the middle of the night.
- Best moment this week: Seeing baby’s heartbeat!
- Miss anything? Not that I can think of right now.
- Movement: Nope
- Food cravings: cold veggies and my morning green smoothie – loving spinach right now.
- Anything making you queasy or sick? Only if I go too long without eating.

- Labor signs? NO!
There you have it. As I start to show I’ll share some pictures but for now there is nothing really to see! I think I had this big of a pooch before getting pregnant! And before someone freaks out and all “you know what” breaks loose – that is my ARM in the first picture – NOT my boob!
I have really slowed down since finding out I am pregnant – almost too much. I’m sure once my energy returns I will pick back up. For now, I am happy with any workout I can get in.
2/25/13 – Crossfit – first WOD since finding out I was prego! Strength was Push press (5,5,5,3,3,3) and I worked up to 3×100#. The WOD was Half Murph and for me it was a Modified Half Murph. Here is what I did: Row 400 m, then 10 rounds of Cindy (5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 air squats) then row another 400 m. It was a good one!
2/26/13 – push up challenge (week 2, day 1)
2/28/13 – Crossfit and push up challenge (week 2, day 2). All I did was bench press because I was a little crampy and nervous about it. I did a 500 m row to warm up and stretched really well and then left after I benched. Here were my rounds: 5 x 65, 5 x 75, 5 x 85, 5 x 90, and 5 x 95.
3/1/13 – 2 mile walk/jog with the pup.
3/2/13 – push up challenge (week 2, day 3)
3/4/13 – Crossfit – Broken up Filthy Fifty – holy Moses this was hard for me. I did everything but instead of box jumps, I did step ups and singles instead of double unders. I also used a 35 lb KB. My time was 35:35.
3/5/13 – Push up challenge (week 3, day 1)
3/6/13 - Crossfit. Strength was push press (5×5) and I worked up to 100 for my last round. WOD was a tabata – 8 rounds each with 20 seconds of work, 10 seconds of rest: Kettle Bell Swings (35lbs), Plank hold, Burpees, Sit-ups. Your score was the lowest number of reps for each round. I am really feeling “being pregnant” because this was much harder for me than it should have been! My final score was 7/20/4/9.
3/9/13 – accumulated over 3 miles of walking (spent the day at the Daytona Speedway for the Supercross event and covered a lot of ground throughout the day) – this totally counts!
3/11/13 – Crossfit. Strength was deadlift and double under work. I did about 5 minutes of double under work but started cramping so I stopped that all together. For the deadlift I worked up to 205 lbs. for my final round (3 reps) and felt good. I didn’t want to push it and my coach said to just stay under my 1RM. Although I felt fine, I will probably end at a lower number next time. No point in pushing it. The WOD was a 15 minute AMRAP of 20 DU (60 singles for me), 15 wall ball shots (14 lbs.), 10 T2B and 5 deadlifts (125 lbs). I completed 4 rounds plus the singles of the 5th round.
So there it is – see I have been doing something over the past few weeks. I know I need to get back to some running and I will. This week…so ask me about it next week if I don’t have some running included in my workouts!
