I didn't do as bad as I thought considering I haven't been working out daily like I should be. ( I was out sick)

My goals for the next weeks are to continue this workout, get an extra workout in (walking with Em) and now that my diet is much better, try to incorporate smaller portions throughout the day.

How did your fit test and weigh-in go?

Emma Grace | 7 Month Update

No comments
These are the best pictures I could get this month.  She is always on the move...and apparently being 7 months old is serious business (as expressed in the bottom picture).  LOL.

Weight: 16.8 lbs (40% percentile)
Length: 26 inches (35% percentile)
Milestones:  I don't know what I am going to do with this girl.  She is walking with her walker and has started clapping.  She loves when we say "yay, Emma!" and she claps her little heart out.  She is saying mama and hi and still learning to wave hi/bye.  She has this cute little Miss America wave.  Emma has 5 teeth.  She also started playing Peek-a-Boo back with us.  It's sooo cute!
Sleep: She is back to sleeping through the night.  Almost 12 hours and still taking 2 naps during the day that are each 1-2 hours long.  I hope it stays like that!
Eating:  Still eating like a big girl.  She loves pretty much everything.  We started giving her yogurt and she has done really well.  That was something I was a little worried about with all the dairy.  She is a pro at picking food up and feeding herself.  I am still going strong breastfeeding.
Favorites:  Emma loves music.  This is something she definitely gets from her daddy.  I really hopes it continues.  She loves her shadow.  She tries so hard to grab it.  Her favorite thing to do is chase Neko, our dog, around.  Of course, he takes off as soon as he sees her coming. LOL.  She loves to play fetch with him too.  She gets so excited and kicks her little feet.  She has started doing this really silly (fake) laugh and I love it.  Her personality is starting to shine through.  She even fake coughs.  Haha. 
Dislikes:  She still doesn't like to put on the changing table for very long.  We are definitely going through a little separation anxiety as well and she doesn't like when we leave the room. 
Clothes:  She is in 6 month clothes and fitting into some 6-12 months.  She is growing so fast!

BBM Challenge | Week 6

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

So, technically I'm a week behind, but spent Week 7 doing two workouts a day to catch up.  I didn't work out at all week 6 because Emma and I were both sick.  We are feeling better and I don't want to get too far behind.  It has really helped me to get a workout daily.  It's part of my motivation so I don't get "lazy".  Anyhow, here is how my week went..

Strength-Day 36:
Bent over Reversed Flys-25; Dumbbell Deadlifts-14; Divebomber Pushups-7 (so hard!); Weighted Lunge Kick-L16 R16; Dumbbell Windmills-L15 R15; Plank w/ Alternating Leg Lift-60secs

Cardio-Day 37:
Fake Jump Ropes-145; X Squats-28; Jog in Place-70secs; Mountain Climbers-100; Power Skip-60; Speed Skaters-21; Squat Thrust-24

Strength-Day 38:  
Bent over Reversed Flys-22; Dumbbell Deadlifts-13; Divebomber Pushups-8; Weighted Lunge Kick-L14 R14; Dumbbell Windmills-L17 R14; Plank w/ Alternating Leg Lift-60secs

Cardio-Day 39:
 Fake Jump Ropes-136; X Squats-30; Jog in Place-70secs; Mountain Climbers-100; Power Skip-55; Speed Skaters-20; Squat Thrust-22

Bent over Reversed Flys-25; Dumbbell Deadlifts-16; Divebomber Pushups-6; Weighted Lunge Kick-L16 R16; Dumbbell Windmills-L17 R15; Plank w/ Alternating Leg Lift-60secs

Rest-Day 42:  I went to a good friend's bridal shower and had such a good time.  Michael has been great and pretty much taken care of Emma all day, so when I got home I was able to catch up on things for my shop.

I was able to get all my workouts completed in the AM this week and it felt amazing!  My goal is to continue to do there earlier in the day and not wait until the evening.

How did your week go? What is one goal for next week?
