Hefner Family Update:

13 weeks!!!

The belly up close:

It's hard to believe it's already been 13 weeks. I guess it's true what they say... It goes by so much faster when you are busy with a toddler! Jace has really kept us busy with his big personality! 

The first trimester was somewhat difficult but we got through it successfully! I got in at least 4-5 days of exercise! For those of you who's first trimesters are a breeze or you haven't been pregnant yet this kind of success calls for a fist pump or "head bump" as Jace likes to do! It's a big deal people! I struggled to have energy but always felt better once I made myself get up & go!

So what have I been doing exactly? I have been doing a variety of things: running, elliptical, spin class, TurboFire HIIT DVD's, & some circuit training. I try to go with how my body feels and just get something in for the day. It's important to not push yourself too far while pregnant so I have been just enjoying a great sweat! Tomorrow I am doing a bootcamp with some other wives & shall see how my body reacts! Really looking forward to the change of pace & hoping my competitiveness doesn't come out right now ;) 

I also need to give a shout out to my wonderful husband. I seriously am so grateful for the man I married! He knows how to take care of a lady :)  He does the laundry, dishes, changed diapers, & well, pretty much everything even when I don't ask him to do it... Yes, I am telling the truth ladies! I can't thank him enough for the way he takes care of our little family! 

Now that I am going into my second trimester things are improving. I am gaining energy & getting a little bit of an appetite. I still enjoy my naps when I can get one while Jace is napping! I mean, why not? ;) 

Here are some of my favorite things right now:

My new awesome blender:

My reliable Shakeology:

 Fruit, fruit, & more fruit:

We are here in Florida & enjoying some quality family time. Spring Training is officially underway! I am so proud of my husband & excited to see what 2012 holds for him on and off the field!

Jace update:

 He is running (not walking) everywhere. He is very social & has manners. He loves Mickey Mouse, Nemo, trains, playing ball w/Daddy, praying the "roster" prayer where he thanks God for everything, talking about his cousins, sitting on momma's lap, singing DEEP & WIDE (he literally yells it) & our favorite bedtime song is How Great Is Our God (he is like his Gramps). 

I have officially become "full time" with Beachbody & helping fight obesity! I truly love my job & the fact that it's not something I have to do but it's who I am. I have been doing Facebook challenges & these women have blown me away! They have blessed me more than I could ever bless them! If you are seeking accountability or need some direction in your health & fitness journey please do not hesitate to ask me for help! It's always a privilege to do so!

Thank you to all our friends & family for all of your support & prayers! We are truly grateful for all of you!
