Motivation 101: Exercise while expecting and TOO tired

Post work out with Peggy Fox  who shot a story to air on WUSA9 of me sweating it out at 22 weeks.

Mommy Bootcamp’s Kathy Corbey says 90% of pregnant women tell her they feel better after going through with a work out …despite a case of  ‘the quease’:

Trying 'Mommy Bootcamp' aka Gettin' my booty kicked!

Mommy strong all day long!

Mommy Bootcamp instructor Kathy Corbey invited me out for one of their Saturday morning classes at the Dulles Town Center. The 1 hour class was filled with lots of stretching, cardio, use of your own weight exercises and included laps around the mall with your stroller! I’ve trained for a marathon and enjoyed lifting weights but nothing prepared me for this (In video, I’m in the bright yellow t-shirt).  Also look for the cheering section more concerned with not dropping their Cheerios than their mama’s performance!

Why I like: It’s affordable and your workout is modified based on weeks expecting to post-baby level. Here’s July’s Schedule

What's Shakin'? My Weight.

Note to self: pay more attention to the infomercial next time. Apparently the Shake Weight is not motorized as I had originally thought.

It glows!

1000+To Do Yoga on National Mall in DC

If you follow me on Foursquare you saw that I checked-in at Down Dog Yoga for the first time this week.  The room heated at 90 degrees for the full hour had me sweating bullets midway. It’s been a couple days and it still hurts (in a good way) to raise my arms above my head 🙂 Whether you’re a beginner, pro or never have tried it lululemon is hosting a FREE yoga class on the NATIONAL MALL. It’s to celebrate the Cherry Blossoms and beautiful weather. Famous yogis like Kaitlin Quistgaard, editor of Yoga Journal and this month’s cover model Faith Hunter will be there!

I'm racing in the Kentucky Derby!

I am a lover of the races. I cried when I watched Seabiscuit. I balled when Barbaro took his last breath. I always honor the dress code no matter where the race is I attend. Last year I broke the rule… passed over Lilly Pulitzer for Betsey Johnson. This year I’m doing something ludicrous. I’m racing!

Kentucky Derby Marathon here I come.

I’ve hesitated announcing I’m running another 26.2 miles in a month because I was unsure if I was mentally there yet. It’s been more than a year since I did the Marine Corps Marathon and it’s taken time to believe it could be done again. I ran 13 miles this past weekend and it’s exactly what I needed. Half way there… and perfect place to be just a month before race day. Yep, BTW  it’s April 24th.

This is the first time I’ll get close to the Kentucky Derby and I’m fine that it’s not all about the big hats. It’s cool that I can instead boast about my bigger feet as the swelling sets in. I went to buy new running shoes the other day and the guy said what size? I said “11”. He said “ELEVEN?”. I said yes. He said “ELEVEN?”. I said yes “Eeee-Leven”.

You should’ve seen his face when they actually fit.
