The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

Momma's Monday Check-in: 12/40

Note: McFatty Mondays is no longer!! Instead, I will be posting Momma's Monday Check-in. Join me as I eat and exercise my way through the next 28 weeks.

Due Date: April 8, 2011

Total weight gain: 4
Morning Sickness: I thought it was gone, but I was wrong.
Cravings: Orange juice, gummy bears
Aversions: Butter and cheese
Sleep: I'm still very tired all the time but I'm more or less sleeping through the night
I can't live without: Maternity pants. I think I'm over the Bella Band. I swore by it last pregnancy, but this time it's really getting on my nerves. I need some pants made for pregnant people, the end.
I miss: My waistline--this in between period is presenting a real wardrobe challenge
I am looking forward to: a big baby belly
Aha Moment: 12.5 weeks completed, all signs point to a healthy baby, yippee!! I'm really growing another person!
Milestones: This week was full of them: first prenatal appointment, heard the heart beat on Doppler for the first time, saw the baby on ultrasound, and I think I've officially entered the second trimester. Sah-WEET!!
Best moment this week: Watching Little Sears Rock'n and Roll'n in 3-D.

Exercise: A couple interval runs and some long morning walks. Better than last week, but not good enough :) When I made my big plans I forgot that Andy had to work late twice, and that we would be out of town over the weekend. I may or may not have mentioned that I signed up for a 10K race on November 14th. Six weeks to work my way back up to 6 miles. Can I do it!?
Diet: I'm not feeling quite as picky as I have been the last month or so, and definitely better able to make healthy choices since the fatigue hasn't been as great. Luckily, I've had aversions to overtly fatty food options, finally.

Goal's for the upcoming week: Ohhhh, the same as last week! I miss my old routine.

Belly Shot:

Movement: none

Gender: unknown

Labor Signs: none


  1. Your cute belly is making me broody! Yeah for making it into the second trimester!

  2. A 10 K in November?!?! It's're my hero.
    Yay for the second trimester!!

  3. My friend craved gummy bears through her pregnancy,too - so funny!!

  4. hey lady! sorry i've been mia lately!! but in response to the comment you left me today, i know! being tired/exercising is a circle, you're too tired to do it, but you won't get the energy if you don't!! I guess Nike knew what they were talking about when they made their slogan "Just Do It", huh. I really want to be back to goal weight before my next pregnancy so I'm making that my new timeline, the sooner I lose, the sooner we can try! I mean it's as good a way to plan as any, right? LOL.
    Sorry for the longness, I should've just em'ed you huh?
    I truly appreciate all your comments!!

  5. Oh I envy your exercise. I cant even manage to clean my house! Love the belly shot, such a cute bump :)
