26 weeks...

I got a few new products today in the mail from my amazing Team HMB family. There were 2 new protein powders and a few pre-workout supplements in a big box with my name on it. I was so excited as I opened it up and saw what was inside! Although I can’t even use the protein powders at this moment (I have to wait until after the baby is born), seeing these things reminded me of my competitive goals for the future. I quickly went online to the National Physique Committee (NPC) website to look at upcoming dates for shows that I think I could be ready for after my baby is born. There are so many shows and I found one that I think I could be ready for…October 20, 2012!!!! You may be thinking that I am crazy for still being pregnant and thinking about show prep LOL I think it’s perfect timing to be focusing on my goals!!

I have heard 2 different schools of thought when it comes to adding kids in the mix. There’s the “better do it now because once kids come in the picture, all your dreams go out the window” and the “kids add to your life as you continue to live out your purpose, dreams and goals.” I have no doubt that when Champ arrives, life will feel more full, priorities will shift and a new “norm” will be established. However, I refuse to believe that my dreams and goals will suddenly become unreachable. I am so excited to see how our little Champ will fit into and enrich our lives! I seriously have had dreams of me running the Santa Monica stairs with Champ strapped to my chest in a baby carrier LOL I know that as long as I keep my relationship with God and my relationship with my husband my top priorities, I will be able to be the best mother and wife that I can be. This may sound backwards to some, but it makes perfect sense to me! My relationship with God and my relationship with my husband are the 2 most important things in my life. They are my foundation. In order to build something great, the foundation has to remain strong. Champ’s birth will be the first “brick” on the foundation, and definitely won’t be the last! As we begin to build and more pressure is placed on the foundation, I must do my part in taking care of that strong, bottom layer so that it doesn’t crack! I’m so glad that I have couples and families around me that are living examples of how to keep the foundation strong. I know having children will be a challenge and sometimes will feel like a juggling act, but the reward greatly outweighs the challenge. I can’t believe that I only have a few more weeks to go until I'm a mommy…
