I created this blog as a tool to keep myself motivated as I head into a new chapter in my life.  I'm currently 31 weeks pregnant (due May 26th) and am planning on using this blog to chart my progress towards my post-pregnancy goal of getting into the best shape of my life - and staying there!  I would also love to hear from others who are in the same situation and working towards similar goals.

I have worked towards this goal in the past and was starting to see some definition on my abs, but I hit a plateau and after hearing a lot of conflicting information on how to break out of the plateau, I wound up hitting a wall and just giving up.  So I started this pregnancy about 25lbs heavier than I was at my peak, and the pregnancy pounds have just kept piling on.  

I'm ready for a change, and this blog is going to help me achieve that.  My plan is to set up a workout and diet program with a personal trainer and IFBB Pro in town named Jeni Briscoe.  That way I only have one source of information coming at me, and it's from a source I trust.  I will be working towards competing in the figure category at the Northern Classic amateur bodybuilding show in June 2012.  Whether or not this actually happens will depend on a lot of variables, but it seems like a good goal to start with.
