Monday August 13th, 2018 (BABY PARK IS AS BIG AS AN ARTICHOKE!)
Walked pups 2.5 miles in the morning!
I feel like a fat BLOB today.
I am a hot emotional mess and I’ve been on the verge of crying at least 5 plus times today and it’s only 3pm. I don’t know if I feel this way because I literally ate a dozen + cookies this weekend or if it's because I am 18 weeks pregnant.
I feel unattractive but mainly I don’t know why I feel so emotional, sad and unhappy. I am trying to stay busy so I don’t think about how I feel. I have a TON of work to do which is great in keeping my mind busy. I know Albert wants to try and fix it (He's a fixer by nature) but it’s not something that can be fixed.
One of the members made us her homemade chocolate cake and it is literally the most delicious cake I’ve ever eaten in my Life. Another of my personal training clients even brought in homemade blueberry vegan muffins and they were so delicious too! Such sweet people in our lives already feeding baby park.
Working out was good but I had to motivate myself to get through it. It's important to remind myself that I need to it one day at a time because everyday I feel different.
***Addicted to Terrace House in Tokyo and Chocolate Cake!

Walked pups 2.5 miles in the morning.
Felt a lot better today, energy and mood wise. Feeling a little overwhelmed with the work load these past couple days. There is a lot to do with our business and I feel like there just isn’t enough time to get things done.
My mood was a lot more serious today, especially with training my clients. Pushed my afternoon ladies through a birthday WOD and I love seeing them work hard! Started experiencing some uncomfortable cramping today — Baby park is moving around, I can feel him or her!
I loved my training today, especially the Pushups off the bench since I feel that my pushups have been challenging for me lately. There's nothing better than getting a chance to practice something that I feel like I've been sucking at. I also like the feeling of doing Farmers Walks.
Makes me feel like I am working my core without having to do situps and I don't have to think about technique or form too much. Just lift something heavy and carry it a distance.

Walked pups 2 miles in the morning.
A super productive day and I got a lot of work done, but there still is so much more to do. It’s hard for me to stay focused at the end of the day. I'm just so tired by the time I get home.
I had a great workout today and loved doing some heavy DB Rows and Lunges.
Sleep has been decent so far this week, not the greatest and today I experienced some tail bone pain along with cramping for the first time while I was coaching Barbell Class. Not sure what it’s from exactly. The cramping consisted for the rest of the evening and I didn’t want to eat anything that we had at home. Not even the Trifecta meals that we order and have ready in the fridge.
Albert who is always my guardian angel and lifesaver called me like he does every day when he leaves the gym and asks me, ‘Do you need anything? Can I pick you up anything from the store? Are you craving anything?’ And tonight I took him up on the offer of getting some Pho in hopes that it would help me and my tummy feel better.
So he came and picked me up, despite it being late and after a long day...
It did help some, and when I got home I was so exhausted, I passed out on the couch at 10:30pm and Albert woke me up at 12:30am and told me to go to bed.
Thursday, August 16th, 2018 (REST DAY)
Woke up at 4am with horrible cramp pains again also known as round ligament pain and possibly Braxton Hicks?
That shit is painful!
I had a fun walk planned with Taylor that I had to cancel that I felt so bad about but I literally could not do anything and just laid in bed in the fetal position until 7am. I tried to go back to sleep. I took it easy today and just went to the gym to train my ladies then came back home to chill until Albert got off work.
We had dinner plans with Mary and David and had Korean BBQ in Eastlake! It was so delicious, so much protein! Was nice to hang out with our friends and catch up.

Walked pups 2.7 miles in the morning then did a fun track workout with Albert.
I love working out outdoors with Albert. he always comes up with fun ones for us to do together and it’s another way for us to bond. I felt nauseous today which felt weird. Also a little crampy. Was wondering if it was because I needed to eat?
After the workout, we went and checked out this yummy cafe in Kirkland called ‘Sano Cafe.’ They have yummy fresh salads and acai bowls so we both got different salads and shared an acai bowl.
In the evening, we went to our annual Reign Bowling Night and it was super fun hanging out with all of the Reign Fam, seeing everyone enjoy themselves and hanging out - outside of the gym. I did enjoy some boneless chicken wings and fries!
P.S. I am so happy that the chocolate cake is gone because I seriously feel like I put on 3lbs this from eating a slice every night! LOL!!!

Walked pups 2.7 miles in the morning
Today we had a Team Training Day which I love to have because it gives us a chance to spend time together learning outside of the coaching setting. Love spending time with everyone!
*For the first time, Hanging leg raises bothered me so I did plank hold + Shoulder taps instead.

Walked pups 2 Miles this morning with Albert.
Feeling rather large and pregnant today. My legs are so sore from Friday’s 400m lunges, then team training day on Saturday. I feel like I need to be a little more conscious about my food because I feel like I have been a little more lax these past 4 weeks eating more of the things I’ve been craving and not really paying too much attention to the amount of calories I’ve been consuming.
"It’s also pretty sad that I can no longer fit into any of lululemon pants that are a size 4. LOL"
We went to target today to pick up some storage bins so I can put all of my workout clothes in there that I can no longer wear. Sad day.
I felt so overwhelmed shopping in the maternity section... I have no idea what to pick out and what fits well or what size to choose. So, I just resort to the sleepwear and pick out comfy pajamas. I could LIVE in Pajamas!!!
But I can’t wear and train in PJ’s all day like I wish I could.
I ended up not buying anything really except some comfy sleep shorts and a nightgown that’s really soft which Albert picked out. It’s super cute and has baby chicks wearing rainboots on them. We literally only ate two meals today but they were both rather heavy. Gyro and fries for lunch and homemade spaghetti for dinner.
