From My Beginning To Yours - Blog #77

temp-post-image Summer is in full swing which means while the days are longer, most likely, we are trying to pack three times the activities into each one. I know with the countdown to our baby girl's arrival, I'm squeezing in as much outside and pool time as I can with our 4 and 6-year-olds, knowing that when our sweet girl arrives it won't be quite as easy to grab a towel and go. I want to max out summer with the kiddos as best we can.

So, on the go, I've been throwing together some crockpots of chicken, packing snacks before we leave and while leaving room to be spontaneous, planning enough to know where we will be during meal times to make the best choices.

At 34 weeks, we have 6 weeks left of Baby and Me WODS. In the last two weeks, through TNT's programming, I've worked on hanging power snatches, sled push shuttle runs, hanging clean and jerks and more. This month's benchmark workout was the 5K, for baby and me that was 4 miles on the bike. The last 2 years, I've shaved a lot of time off my 5k and while this year feels almost like a pass I know that next June will be here before I blink. I'll just have to see what it brings. With so many possibilities for improvement, all I can do is my best when the time comes.

For now, I'm going to continue to do my best to WOD 3 times a week before the baby comes, keep my attitude positive and remember to be thankful that I'm able to put forth the effort. Even if there are days I don't feel like it, I'm going to keep getting up and making it happen. No one can do it for me.
