    Still haven't gotten around to the last details of my new program so I did something close to what I'll be doing.

    RDL wu1x5x65# / 1x10x75# / 3x10x85# (+10#)
    Single Leg Calve Raise 3x15x45#
    Back Squats 1x15x40# / 1x20x35#
    Leg Curls 1x15x15# / 2x15x7.5# (+2.5#)

    I added high rep squats back in because I want to keep up the neural pattern instead of maybe having to learn to squat again postpartum. The set of 20 was a fun change too. Really can focus on form, breaking and driving, depth and hang out a bit in the hole.

    Haven't had dinner yet but I made sure to prep everything for bun.

    Breakfast: 2 leaner wild hog breakfast sausage patties, egg scrambled with whites, genesis toast with jelly
    Lunch: lots of all-bran buds with granola and milk
    Dinner: bun bo xao from my new vietnamese cookbook, raspberries and blackberries



    The bun has a ridiculous amount of sodium. There is so much fish sauce in the whole dish. Tomorrow is my doctor's appointment so I gotta get in one last favorite sodium bomb in case my bp is worrisome high.

    Very easy exercise update today. I didn't do cardio. I just didn't carve out time for it. It was preventable but I didn't care enough.

    I had my doctor's appointment today and it went great! Got the 2nd trimester sonogram and he is so active and healthy and perfect!!! The reason I'm not feeling any activity is because I have an anterior placenta that will act as a shock absorber until around 24 weeks when his movements get stronger. It was such a relief to know he is moving around just fine.
    My large fibroid has also shown growth and it's low on the uterus but located on the backside. If it were on the front it would almost certainly block the baby from getting into the birth canal and mean a c-section but since it's on the back it may or may not and I might not know until labor.
    Blood pressure is great! 102/64. It's normal for it to drop around this time in pregnancy so it was great to see that it isn't rising right now. I was so worried about it and now I'm relieved.

    Breakfast: genesis bread almond butter and jelly sandwich, everything bagel with cream cheese, 2 plums
    Snack: small bowl of all-bran buds with granola and milk
    Dinner: will be stuffing myself on Mexican, probably cheese enchiladas smothered in carne guisada sauce

    I had a sudden hunger hit this morning where I wanted lots of carbs and urgently. Almost felt shaky so I guess it was a drop in blood sugar. The snack was just a little something to hold me over until dinner.

    Got my second upper day of the week in. Before it I was yawning, my eyelids were heavy but I was not going to skip a day. After the warmup and first set I felt totally good to go. There is always more gas in the tank than I think. Still have not worked on finalizing routine.

    Single arm DB Row 1x10x20# / 3x10x25# (+5#)
    Overhead Press 1x10x30# / 3x10x40# (+10# but since I wasn't going slow this time it more accurately would be +5#)
    Incline Fly 3x15x10#
    Lateral Raise 1x15x6.5# / 2x15x7.5# (+1#)
    Incline Curl 1x12x10# / 2x15x8#

    Breakfast: Leftover bun
    Lunch: huge sandwich of fresh french bread with grilled ram and brie
    Dinner: lots of all-bran with granola, milk and a peach
    Snack: very likely going to eat a bit more but I don't know yet

    My husband had made a sandwich for his hunting partner who had to bail last minute and offered it to me instead. It was so dang good like a fancy philly cheese steak!


    Week 19 picture! Slow growing but right on track.

    Today sucked! I was in a bad mood before my workout and then had a terrible, frustrating workout. Ended up with aches and pains too.

    Bulgarian split Squat- drama
    RDL 3x15x65# bad idea
    Leg Extension 1x15x35# / 1x15x40# (+5#)
    Calve Raise 1x16x55# / 1x15x50# sucked
    Seated Band Abductions 2x20x16-27# red band

    I think I'm at the end of doing any kind of squatting movement with any appreciable weight.
    The BSS was a failure for so many reasons. Balance sucked. I tried holding the barbell both on my back and zercher style and it teetered like that long pole tightrope walkers use. So I tried DBs and the balance was a bit better but my abs still flex more than I am comfortable with. My low back also felt jammed and stiff at the bottom. I gave up after 4 reps.
    15 is too many sets for RDL. My SI hurts again and it's from getting sloppy on these. I also hurt my supra or infraspinatus or something in that region when I roughly pulled my shoulders back while doing a rep just because of my bad mood and frustration with how my workout was poorly my workout was going.
    I don't even know what was up my calves. They had no endurance and kept failing before my target of 20.

    It's back to the drawing board on what to do on lower body days.

    Oh yeah! I did tack on 30 mins and 7 miles of biking at the end to feel like I at least worked out. That helped my mood a bit.


    My bad mood was from going through baby things that a relative gave me. At first I thought is was kind that she offered me things but most of it is damaged to the point that I would never offer things in that condition to anyone. Two tote bags full of **** stained clothes, a playpen that has an overwhelming stench of weed and is crusted in who knows what everywhere, and an infant pillow covered in dog hair to the point that it looks like her dog had been using it as a bed. Was she trying to clean out her apartment or does she actually think gross things like that are appropriate to pass on? A charity shop wouldn't even take items in that condition. These things are literally trash so I feel offended.

    Anyway.


    Breakfast: tomato, cucumber, krab and mayo salad with crackers
    Lunch: lots of all-bran with granola and milk
    Dinner: jalapeno cheese wild hog sausage, brussels sprouts and potatoes boiled and then fried in butter, a peach

    Yesterday. Full rest day.

    Breakfast: split chicken breast seared in butter on genesis bread with spicy mayo, pickles and lettuce
    Lunch: all bran buds with peanut butter puffs and milk
    Dinner: jalapeno cheese wild hog sausage with a huge apple

    I wasn't feeling veggies at all yesterday.


    When I was showering and cleaning my belly button I noticed that it's getting smaller because the bottom is pushing up. I guess I'll say goodbye innie in a few months.

    Upper body today. It went pretty good.

    Guillotine Press 2x10x40# / 2x10x45# (+5#)
    Pull-ups 2x12x10-50#black band + 50-120#green band / 2x10x10-50#black band + 50-120#green band (+2 reps)
    Upright Row 4x10x40#
    Rear Fly 3x15x5.5#
    French Press 3x15x25#

    I'm going to switch the French Press for single arm DB overhead extensions. The press feels more awkward and uncomfortable than it does challenging and I don't want to go up in weight because of that. I guess I felt great for the first 2 sets of pull-ups so I went past my goal.


    Breakfast: nothing because I was busy
    Lunch: a humongous chicken caesar salad, all bran with granola and milk
    Dinner: don't know yet but something light and very low fat. maybe fruit and bread? EDIT: indeed 2 dry bagels and an apple

    I have been stuffed since lunch ended at 3. It made the workout kind of suck because I was getting stomach cramps. I also had to cancel dinner plans because I knew there was no way I was going to be okay with eating a single bit until after 9.

    Got my 2nd lower workout in of the week. Much better than the 1st one.

    Squat 1x17x50# / 1x20x50#
    Leg Curl 1x15x17.5# / 1x15x20# (+2.5#)
    RDL 2x10x85# / 1x10x90# (+5#)
    Single leg Calf Raise 3x15x50#
    Lying Band Abduction 1x15x13-21# yellow band / 1x15x16-27# red band (+ 3-6#)

    While scrolling through my journal trying to find the yellow band information I came across the ending numbers to my AllPro.

    This is where I'm ending. 12 reps for everything
    Squat 65#
    Bench 45#
    Pendlay 40#
    Overhead 30#
    RDL 75#
    Upright 35#
    Single leg Calf raise 50#
    My numbers since then seem weird. I thought I had progressed on bench, OHP, upright row and RDL but adjusting for rep differences I haven't or not by much. Keeping a database of lifts would probably be a big help for me.


    Breakfast: bowl filled to the brim with all-bran buds and peanut butter puffs with milk, a banana
    Lunch: chicken tortellini with tomato, mozzarella, basil, balsamic and olive oil
    Dinner: guacamole and unsalted tortilla chips, a promax bar, and a peach

    I didn't have much to choose from today. I'm about to leave town within the hour for the weekend and had to make due with what was left in the kitchen. It's a short road trip and casual visit so I'm going to keep updating. I also have very limited equipment available but I think I'll be able to get something similar to my upper body workout on Saturday accomplished!

    I'm also really feeling heavy, a little short of breath and in need of reclining after eating for the past couple of days. I should get in the habit of 4 meals now.

    Got my workout in on my Dad's old cable machine and it went very well. I enjoyed using cables again because it's been such a long time.

    Machine Row 3x10x35#
    Machine shoulder press 1x10x25# / 1x10x30# / 1x10x35#
    Pec Deck Fly 1x15x25# / 1x15x30#
    Cable lateral Raise 1x10x10# / 2x15x10#
    Cable hip Abduction 3x10x30#

    The row was awkward. The grip was neutral, wider than my shoulders and rowed to shoulder height.

    Breakfast: lots of all bran buds with peanut butter puffs and milk, a banana
    Lunch: genesis bread, cheddar, carrots, watermelon
    Dinner: Big Mac meal

    I was thrilled we were all too tired to go out to eat. I love the once in awhile Big Mac.

    Yesterday's nutrition was so bad. I had gone to bed a tiny bit hungry because nothing in my dad's house sounded good. So I woke up ravenous. Then after I got home I was so tired I napped which I very very rarely ever do. So I got takeout for dinner.

    Breakfast: lots of all-bran buds with peanut butter puffs and milk, 2 cinnamon raisin bagels with margarine *gag*
    Dinner: two tacos and chips with queso

    These were the tacos. They hit the spot.

    Brisket


    Fried portobello

    Yesterday's update.

    My left hip was hurting again on the outside towards the back, bottom, basically at the glute/ham tie-in. It started to hurt to walk and stand and I did a fair amount of walking in the morning that irritated it for the rest of the day. It kind of ached after last Thursday's workout mostly from my first set of squats. So I didn't workout and didn't want to bike in case that was enough hip activity to bother it. It put me in a sad mood to miss my workout. It didn't even occur to me that I could do everything for just my right side until this morning so I'll do that today.

    I got new equipment yesterday! I bought some 1 1/4 pound magnetic plates as well as a TRX. I also signed up to for Alexia Clark's workout subscription. I would like to do endurance workouts like that on my days off. My husband has been getting into phenomenal shape doing bootcamp classes and it makes me miss my old athletic days where I was all-around fit and could go exert myself non-stop for long periods.

    Breakfast: lots of all-bran buds, with peanut butter dots and milk
    Lunch: white potato hash with peppers and onions in butter with eggs
    Dinner: extra lean meatballs with ww pasta, marinara and parmesan
    Snack: genesis almond butter and jelly sandwich

    I really needed to go to the grocery store yesterday but I was swamped. Hoping to make it today. But I could definitely scrounge and come up with something healthy and filling one more day.

    Workout actually went better than expected.

    BSS right leg only 1x10x16# / 2x10x24#
    RDL right leg only 3x15x30#
    Leg extension 1x15x40# / 1x15x45# (+5#)
    Calve Raise 1x20x85# / 1x20x95#

    I was able to comfortably do Bulgarian squats today. I took a longer stance, kept my foot on solid ground vs on the slightly padded mat and kept the dumbells light. One day my stomach might get in the way of these. I could have went heavier for the RDL but out of convenience I used 15# DBs.

    Breakfast: jalapeno cheese hog sausage with genesis bread and mustard, a plum
    Lunch: lots of all-bran buds with lots of granola and milk
    Dinner: onions, snow peas, peppers, several types of mushrooms, celery, asparagus and bamboo shoots in sauce with white rice + a tiny pork spring roll, a tiny piece of sugar cane flank steak, 2 small pieces grilled squid, and a shrimp wrapped in a spring roll

    Ooof. Dinner has me exhausted. I don't even get a feeling of fullness. I get out of breath.

    Sad workout. My SI joint started hurting again today too. Maybe it was from the workout yesterday. It hurts to adjust position when laying down, it hurts to stand too long, and if I walk wrong I can get a sharp pain that stops me in my tracks. I've had this pain before over many years. I've been to the orthopaedic surgeon, I've had my really great physical therapist try to help, nothing. It keeps coming back on occasion. I'm so upset that Zumba of all things is what triggered it again. I'm going to have to drop everything for lower body except leg extensions, curls and calve raises.

    My workout today was upper body but getting in place on the bench for presses set off the sharp pain and I started crying out of frustration. I am trying so hard to take it easy and stay active and two nagging joints for several weeks is a blow to morale.

    Guillotine Press 4x10x45#
    Pullups 3x10x10-50#black band + 50-120#green band / 1x11x10-50#black band + 50-120#green band
    Upright Row 2x10x40# / 2x10x35#
    Rear Fly 3x25x5.5#
    DB Overhead Extension 1x15x12# / 1x12x12# / 1x12x8#

    I'm going to start doing regular bench instead of guillotine. My form feels better that way. I need to remember to do AMRAP on pull-ups because increasing the resistance is too tricky so I have to increase the reps. And I lowered the weight on upright rows because I wanted to be done faster and easier after my crying breakdown wiped my mental energy.

    Breakfast: all bran buds with peanut butter puffs and milk
    Lunch: broc**** tots pan fried with butter, jalapeno cheese hog sausage and a peach
    Snack: not sure but probably genesis toast and an egg scrambled with whites
    Dinner: also not sure but maybe a big garden salad with shrimp, croutons and ranch or maybe my go-to krab salad with crackers. whichever is more lazy.

    Moved today's workout to tomorrow so I still have 2 full days off between body parts. My hip has been feeling totally better. My SI was better today too. But I still will only be doing leg extensions, curls and calve raises tomorrow.


    Breakfast: surimi, cucumber, tomato, garlic and mayo salad with crackers, some plums
    Lunch: garden salad with ranch and croutons, hatch cornbread, all-bran buds with peanut butter puffs and milk
    Dinner: ended up being an apple with gruyere and more cornbread

    Was super busy today and pushed lunch until late so it was bigger than usual. I have no idea what I'll eat for dinner. I'm think salmon salad with mayo, mustard, onion, apple, dill relish and pecans on crackers. Last night ended up being a bagel with cream cheese because that was how lazy I was.

    Did my wussy lower body workout and actually progressed at 2/3s of it! Not bad.

    Single leg Calf Raise 1x15x50# / 2x15x55# (+5#)
    Leg Curl 2x15x20#
    Leg Extension 1x15x45# / 1x15x47.5# (+2.5#)

    I was tired. It was 100 degrees. I had been busy and had had a late "lunch" again so my workout was also later than usual. So I did really good considering. If conditions were better I would have added a set to both the curls and extensions.

    Breakfast: pink salmon with mayo, mustard and relish with a side of hatch cornbread
    Lunch: lots of all-bran with granola and milk
    Snack: more cornbread!
    Dinner: OMG! It started with guacamole and chips and I thought it was going to end there, but then 2 almond butter and jelly sandwiches and 2 platefuls of s&p chips later...

    I mixed the salmon salad right in the can. Ready for sleep deprived eating with a newborn!

    21 weeks today! Over halfway there! I'm getting big. I usually crop all the photos at the same dimensions but had to start adding horizontal pixels to get the whole belly in.



    Most of the "belly" is actually my normal fat. When I rub my stomach to feel how big I am inside I can feel that my ab wall is really just bulging a tiny bit. He is still not even a full pound or a full foot yet. He has about 6 pounds and 8-9 inches to go.

    We were at the baby store getting shower gifts for a friend the other day and ended up buying our car seat (a maxi-cosi mico) which is the first gear purchase we made. It's compatible with the stroller we want, on Consumer Report's top 10 safest car seats list, and it was 20% off so we jumped on it. It made me so happy setting it up and learning about how it works knowing that the little man will be in it at the end of the year ready to come home. I told my husband that I might turn into a weirdo who sits in the nursery and stares at the baby stuff as we start getting it all set up.

    Missed my upper body workout yesterday. I thought I had time but my plans for the day ended up taking way more time than I thought.


    Breakfast: huge salad with romaine, carrot, tomato, cucumber, chicken, crouton and ranch
    Dinner: small double cheeseburger, french fries, chocolate chip cookie
    Snack: a big peach


    My weight is starting to come to a crawl this week. Not quite a plateau. I expected this because how long could I have kept gaining 1 pound/week?!

    Lower body day again. Left hip still hurts. It got triggered a couple of days ago when I leapt up to run after my dog. SI doesn't hurt but it still feels off. So wussy leg day.

    Leg curl 2x10x25# / 1x10x27.5# (+2.5#)
    Leg extension 2x15x47.5#
    Calf raise 1x20x95# / 1x20x105# (+10#)

    I could've increased the extension but it slipped my mind to add weight.

    Breakfast: caprese salad and a bagel
    Lunch: huge chicken caesar salad
    Dinner: baked sweet potato fries and broc**** tots with either a peach or a couple of plums

    My husband mentioned he has a stethoscope and we are at week where that should be enough to hear the heartbeat so we're going to do that tonight. I'm really sad and very slightly anxious about not being able to feel movement because of the placenta placement. I hope in a few weeks I can feel any kind of sensation.

    Busy day again yesterday. I am on a streak. I had no workout planned so that was good. My SI started hurting big time again and my hip started aching while walking around shopping last night.

    Breakfast: extra lean beef with marinara and ww pasta
    Lunch: lots of all-bran with granola and milk, an apple
    Dinner: 1.5 cooked sushi rolls

    I've been eating a tiny bit less these days. About 100-150 calories less. But I'm still eating to hunger so I think it's making up for not doing cardio. I really want to get back to doing cardio but my body needs to repair and feel better.

    I had a wonderful workout today. I did Saturday's upper body routine because I still haven't done it properly. The first week I was at my dad's and did a similar workout instead. Last week I skipped it entirely. I really wanted to do it instead of Wednesday's workout so I did and it was a great idea.

    DB rows 2x10x25# / 1x10x27.5# (+2.5#)
    Behind neck Press 1x10x30# / 1x10x35# /1x10x40# (+5#)
    Flat Fly 2x15x8#
    Lateral Raise 1x15x5.5# / 2x15x8# (+2.5#)


    Breakfast: turkey bacon, egg white, cheese and avocado breakfast tacos, a plum
    Lunch: cinnamon raisin bagel with butter, leftover extra lean beef with marinara
    Dinner: huge garden salad with croutons and a bit of chicken with ranch, a peach

    Shortened my workout by 1 set today and also cut out left leg curls because I want to see if it's possible affecting my hip pain.

    Right leg only Leg Curl 2x10x15# (+1.25#)
    Leg Extension 1x10x55# / 1x10x60#
    Single leg Calf Raise 2x15x55#

    I also cut extensions down from 15 to 10 for the first time so I don't know if that progressed.


    Breakfast: lots of all-bran buds with peanut butter puffs and milk, an apple
    Lunch: breakfast tacos with turkey bacon, egg whites, avocado and salsa verde
    Dinner: either NY style pizza or fried chicken nachos

    Having dinner with a friend. I won't know what I'm having until we pick where to go. I'm looking forward to either choice.

    Edited. Yum! Ended up sharing fresh, thick potato chips with cheese dip, 2 slice of bbq brisket pizza and a snickers ice cream bar. I was BLOATED. Still kind of bloated this morning too.

    No workouts planned today.

    Breakfast: last two slice of leftover pizza
    Dinner: huge garden salad with croutons and honey mustard, lots of all-bran buds with pb puffs and milk
    Snack: peach

    The pizza slices were huge so they lasted me until dinner. I guess I'm also not that hungry today since I had such a big meal last night. I'm a couple hundred calories short.


    In kind of baby related news I've started organizing a lot more. I started organizing/cleaning out the house room by room a couple of weeks ago. This past week I did a very thorough budget and looked into opening some new and better accounts and cutting down or out unnecessary expenses to get some more going towards savings. Organizing finances.
    Also this past week I also started implementing a cleaning schedule. I figure I need to get on something more structured rather than to do things when we feel like they're in kind of desperate need to get done. If I can build the schedule now and we can stick with it for the next 4 months it should be easier to kind of keep up when the baby comes. I used to be a spotless person when I was single and my husband used to be... not. So over time we've met somewhere in between. I know having a baby is going to make us go further towards the mess end so I'm trying to get us to make up the difference now.

    22 weeks! We are both growing pretty fast now. The difference between my stomach normally tensed and fully relaxed is coming to a close. And he is roughly at the 1 foot & 1 pound mark!

    Month 5 is very close to being over too.

    Here is yesterday's recap.

    I cannot seem to keep up weekend workouts because I don't want to. I might go back to MTu/ThF instead of the MWThSa I've been trying to do. Whether or not I make it up today is in the air.

    Breakfast: 2 bean burritos with guacamole and tomatoes, 2 plums
    Lunch: baked sweet potato fries, broc**** tots and a cinnamon raisin bagel with almond butter
    Dinner: lots of all-bran buds, pb puffs and skim milk, a smallish caesar salad with fried onions instead of croutons, a peach


    Now for some personal stuff to get off of my chest. My dad and brother live in the area getting massive flooding and they stayed there. I am worried sick about them. Both of them already have several feet of water on their first floors because the creeks just a block from each of them have passed the 500 year water mark which is unreal and it's just going to keep getting worse. Usually a storm passes through and then it's time to deal with the aftermath but this time everything is getting destroyed and there is no relief in sight. It's going to keep getting worse for days and days. It's too late to get out too. I also don't think that people are aware of how hot it is in August in the subtropics when you have no A/C and 100% humidity. It's a very difficult situation.

    And the worst part that has been making me tear up thinking about it is that my brother doesn't have flood insurance. They have been having so many financial difficulties for the past couple of years and are already struggling to get by and now they're very likely losing their home. There is already 3-4 feet of standing water in their house and the water is going to be rising for 3 more days. They have evacuated to a neighbor with higher ground and have plenty of food and water so they are safe. But they do not have the money to repair the house and they have no insurance to pay for it. And both of their cars are underwater and I'm not sure that they have comprehensive coverage that covers flooding. I know that they are feeling completely devastated and hopeless right now and everything is grim. I feel so sad for them and their is no way I can help them right now. We had gone through so many storms our entire lives in that area and nothing even close to this has ever happened. It's unbelievable how much water has hit and will keep coming.

    My dad is better off because he has insurance, water, food and power right now. But I'm very worried about him because he is alone and like I said his first floor is taking on feet of water too. Oh today and this week are going to suck. I wish there would have been a mandatory evacuation days ago.

    Yesterday.

    Breakfast: breakfast tacos with turkey bacon, egg whites, cheese, avocado and salsa verde
    Dinner: krab salad with surimi, tomato, cucumber, mayo and garlic on crackers, 2! cinnamon raisin bagels with almond butter

    I was anxious about my family all day yesterday which is why breakfast was late and lunch was skipped.


    Today I finally felt good enough to do an Alexia Clark's lower body workout and it was great. It's circuit style with little rest and requires relatively light weights so it's great for the second half of pregnancy. Since it's a service I pay for I'm not going to share the details but here is what it was like.

    Lots of hip thrusts, squats, step-ups, lunges, RDLS and the like for 10-30 reps.

    Breakfast: white potato hash with onions, peppers, butter, seasoned salt and fried eggs, a plum
    Lunch: lots of all bran buds with granola and milk
    Dinner: about to eat extra lean beef tacos with refried beans, lettuce, tomato and sour cream, probably a peach

    I used to never make ground beef tacos at home because they were always disgusting compared to restaurants but then I learned that browning the meat and then poaching with seasoning was how to make kick ass ones.


    My family is doing well. My brother's family was able to get to a friend's who has power and he is staying optimistic about dealing with the damage and has talked to FEMA. My dad however lost power. I hope he decides to leave and meet up with my brother whenever the water goes down enough to do so. He was very comfortable up until he lost power though. He had taken his Keurig upstairs to have coffee in the morning and had cold Guinness and Netflix to keep him happy.

    Sorry to hear about your family, but I am glad to see your brother is doing better. It is hard to just have to sit a watch and literally not be able to do anything. The whole situation is such a mess... My SO's house was flooded out and I've been feeling the same way. Edgy.


    Working out helps though. eek at doing 30reps.

    I'm so sorry to hear that. It's unreal how many people who aren't even in flood plains have been flooded. The amount of water is unbelievable.

    The only things over 20 were body weight so it wasn't that bad. But I am tight today! The big increase in volume has given me a bit of DOMS.
