5000 lbs Later and 16 Fish

So this is going to be a little bit of a brag session, but I am so proud of myself. Today, I lifted a total of 5000 lbs. NOT all at once of course, but our workout today was one of the qualifiers that they used in the Crossfit Games. I chose my weight, which dictated my reps, chose the clean/push jerk technique, and went for it. I ended up lifting 53lbs 95 times and finished in a time of 16:47 and a slight tear on my hand on the bar. This obviously wouldn't put me in the games, but for being preggo that's pretty darn good. I have been working out this way for about 2 months and I couldn't feel better. No worries, I'm not hurting the baby at all. He has been very active, the doctor has said his heart sounds excellent thus far, and I wouldn't be surprised if he popped out and did a push-up or two ;)

This is me a little after I first started doing a one-handed Dumbbell snatch. Don't be alarmed on how red my face is. It has always been that way when I work out.

Also, I forgot to mention that Tony went fishing with his dad up in Clarks Fork. He caught 16 fish! Out fishing his dad by 8 fish. I'm glad that he has such a good relationship with his dad. Way to go Tony!

So behind....

Tony and I don't have interent at our apartment for now and I have gotten so behind on my blogging. I guess it is a good thing that nothing has really gone on since, but at the same time there has. I am down in the single digits of weeks left. I am so excited to get this little guy into the world, but not too excited that I would want him to come too early. He has become very active lately. I enjoy it, but it has impeded on my sleep in a very obnoxious way. I know it will all be worth it in the end, and I'm sure this is just Heavenly Fathers way of helping me prepare for the inevitable sleep deprivation I will experience once he is in the world. I will be getting more belly shots taken soon by my friend so there will be a fresh batch in the next week or so. Thank you for all your comments. Sorry this isn't a very fun post to look at.
