Prego Bootcamp Day 1

Prego Bootcamp Day 1

Today my other prego friend Gabby and I went for our first class of "Fit4baby" classes here in the suburbs of Los Angeles. We all met up in this beautiful park and was joined by other pregnant woman of all weeks. We had from 35 weeks down to 11 weeks. As the class started I realized this is NOT the stretching and yoga I had imagined it being, given we were asked to bring mats. This lady had us running, doing squats, doing jumping jacks and throwing ourselves down to the floor for a mini push up?...can u say PREGO BOOTCAMP? The instructor was pregnant herself and probably in the best shape of her life with energy that was seeping out of her eyes because she was just full forced with energy. I being 28 weeks pregnant was one of the most winded pregos there. I couldn't keep up. I really thought I was going to die. She actually yelled at me at one point when we were supposto be sprinting and I started power walking she yelled in my face "this is a workout class ladies". I felt like the biggest loser =(  It was my first day working out in about 7 to 8 months so I must continue and push through. I felt great afterwards which reminded me how much I love working out, but never did imagine myself working out this hard at 7 months pregnant. I would like to continue to blog my progress with weight and diet change because I have gone into the dark side of pregnancy and was allowing myself to indulge 100% in my chocolate craving lil miss K has been giving me. So as of today 28 weeks in I have gained 15 lbs. Today I drank nothing but water and had a salad for dinner. Follow my journey on this adventure for the rest of the pregnancy and lets see how it compares to not working out at all (which is what i did with my son)

Letters to Baby K



Being pregnant with my baby girl has changed my outlook on being a mom. As a mother to a boy for the past 5 years I know am realizing the differences I feel in being a mother to a boy and to a girl. With Justin, as a women to a boy you feel more like a protecter and watcher. My life experiences are hard to pass on directly to my son because I want him to have life experiences based on a boys point of view. His real father has not been involved in his life at all so my husband now is taking over that father mentor position which he has lacked all these years.

As for a little girl. I just feel like all my life experiences can directly help her make better decisions. I am a younge mother and still remember 1000% the feelings of losing a friend, your first heartbreak, the akward years and so much more. The older we get the more we lose the basic feelings that younge adolescents feel when something has gone wronge and the world feels like its going to end. Adulthood really toughens you up and makes you realize there are way worst things that can happen, but to a child that IS the worst thing that has happened to them and  its tough.

SO Letters to Baby K will be a new blog I will start for my daughter for her to read bits and pieces of life which i will print out and give to her as she grows up and experiences these things first hand.

Baby Shower

My Baby Shower!

This is a little late but its better late than never. My baby shower was held May 21, 2011 at my sister in law's house. It was a garden themed baby shower with gerber daisies all over the place. This is my 2nd shower and I can't tell you how different it was from my last. I was 19 and my mother was so upset at the fact that i was becoming a teen mom. She cried the entire time and the atmosphere in the room was an overwhelming feeling of how i dissapointed everyone. I think the only person happy was me. OK well that was a path down memory lane. This shower was filled with love. Kennys family and mine both reunited again to celebrate the birth of our new baby girl! I had my bestest friends in the whole world join me! It was tons of fun we played a few games and opened gifts and ATE =) here are some photos I took , ENJOY!
