It's that time in my pregnancy.  I'll be 37 weeks on Monday (due March 25th), and am definitely looking forward to having this over with.

I'll let you in on a secret.  I'm going to be almost starting from scratch again on my weight loss journey. I guess it's not a big secret if you've seen me around lately.  I've gained far too much weight once again, and have a long way to go.

On a more positive note, the motivation is definitely there to get my body back as soon as I get this baby out of me!  I'm truly looking forward to that sweet burn when I've pushed myself to the max, and the extra energy that comes from exercising and eating properly.  My goal is to be back to my "off season" weight by July 1st.  That's around 130lbs.  And 60lbs less than I currently weight.  I'm not entirely sure it's possible, but it would be nice if I could at least get close.

I have a plan.  I'm going to start with my original diet and training program that was made up for me after my last pregnancy and check in with my trainer every month or so to show my food journal and get measurements done.  This is pretty much exactly what I did the last time after my pregnancy except the program isn't new this time.  I'm hoping with all the muscle I built last winter that the weight will come off a bit easier this time and I won't have lost too much of what I worked so hard for.

Another part of my plan is to incorporate a bit more cardio this time, at least until I'm getting close to my off season weight.  I have roller derby twice per week, and I also picked up a double jogging stroller.  Now that I live in town, it will be really nice to take both babies out for a run whenever the weather is decent.
