Tough Times

Things aren't perfect.  They never are.  Situations never present themselves in an easy fashion.  There are ALWAYS forms of obstacles in the way.  Whatever your obstacle may be, rather than shutting down and giving up... look for ways to overcome that obstacle. Pray- but don't expect God to hand you the answer.  Get out there and create your own destiny with His guidance!  If it's meant to be, it will happen! Even more than that... the more you have to overcome... the SWEETER the VICTORY!

My Thoughts On ViSalus

I won't lie. I never thought I'd see myself jump on board. I had 4 close friends contact me about ViSalus over the past year and each one I turned down.  I thought it was a pyramid scheme.  I didn't want to play into the hype. I hate doing what everyone else is doing.  I don't like "fads".  I got a message less than a month ago from my friend, Sheri, and something clicked.  She'd recently joined and her message was simple and to the point. 
It got me thinking about all the people over the past 10 years who have come to me wanting to lose weight and feel better about themselves, but all having the same responses...
"I don't have time."  "I can't eat what you eat."  "I don't have time to cook all that food."  "I like my sweets."  etc... etc...etc...
All of those people who had complained to me.. I didn't really have an answer for.  You have to invest time to get results.  We all know that.  Here's the thing.  You don't have to do a total overhaul.  If you make ONE simple change.. it can help change your life.  I like to compare it to my cousin.  She lost 30lbs over 4 months by just drinking water instead of pop all the time.  One small change.  No gym time.  No diet pills.  Simply substituting ONE thing in her life made a huge difference! 
So I say this to you all now.  ViSalus is your answer when you have all the excuses like listed above.  It's a company that has based everything around their shake (yes they have other products, but the base is the shake).   There are plenty of nutrients packed into a low calorie shake that you can mix all kinds of goodies in and make it even BETTER.  Replace the worst meal of your day with a shake.  For example, if you stop at Wendy's on your way home from work in the evening, mix a yummy shake instead.  You're getting WAY more nutrients, LESS calories, and it will take you less time than waiting on the drive thru too, all while saving money. If you have trouble getting up to get breakfast in the morning, have one for breakfast.
Then the company has even better news.  They spent NO money on advertisements.  They simply gave incentives to people using their products, who are now making loads of money from home. So they put the money into the people, rather than billboards.   So now, not only are you losing weight, making healthier food choices, you're getting your shakes for FREE and if you want to be a promoter, making more money on top of that. 
I know you all probably feel like I'm spamming my facebook wall or something with all my Visalus recipes, wanting you to join.. but seeing as how so many of you have asked for help along the way and I KNOW you want to make a change. Here it is. Right before your very eyes! and SOOO SIMPLE! So yes, I won't lie. There is money to be made with the business.  But even more than that- I truly believe so many of you would be successful with this!  That is why I want ViSalus to take over Charleston! It's time we all stood up and did something positive for a change!!! 
PLEASE message me for more details! I will get you samples! I'll give you my number and we can chat and I can answer your questions! Whatever you need, just let me know!

My 1st and foremost goal is to be the best Wife & Mommy I can possibly be!
With everything going on, all my loves and passions in life... nothing can surpass those "titles" and what all they truly mean. Being a wife to Andrew is the greatest blessing I could have ever asked for, and NOW, we have created this little boy that we get to raise. I can't wait to meet him! As for baby, our goal is to raise him the way God intended. Have fun, love him, cherish him, spoil him too of course, but also give him direction. Teach him morals and values.. right from wrong. These are my true goals to come.
As for some other goals, I know you're all wondering and asking about my fitness plans. I do have high hopes of returning to the stage. As you all have learned over the years, I always work to improve from year to year. This year is a bit different with all the changes my body has gone through, however once baby gets here, we will reassess the situation and make a plan from there. While I would love to return to the stage asap, I will not do so unless my body is ready both physique-wise AND routine wise. I will not rush anything "just to compete". I always want to be at my best and while I love to push my body, I also know my limitations. We'll take this process one day at a time. In the meantime, we're enjoying the pregnancy and now have a countdown of 30 Days Until Baby Wright is Due!!!!

Just a little update

Here's a belly pic from 34wks on Jan 30, 2012.

I figured it was about time to stop in for an update. As for baby, he's growing well and progressing as he should! Things are going great and I couldn't be more thankful! We've also had our baby shower since I last posted so we've had a time trying to find a place to put everything. The baby has taken over and he's not even here yet LOL =) We are SO thankful for all the wonderful gifts we received! It was definitely a huge load lifted off our shoulders with all the help and support we've gotten! At this point, only about 34 days to go!
I'm still working at the hospital full time. I have my moments of being short of breath where baby takes up so much space, but overall doing well. I would go ahead and take some time off, but I would MUCH rather be off after he gets here.
I'm also still able to go to the gym. A typical workout for me is 1-2 exercises per body part. I typically do a full body workout with slightly higher reps and lower weight and then 20 minutes on the treadmill walking at an incline. It feels pretty good to still be able to have my gym time... not only to still be able to feel the weights, but also makes my body feel better and I sleep better too. At this point I'm lifting strictly to prepare for labor/delivery of baby as well as for circulation purposes. Definitely pregnancy lifting isn't to gain muscle or lose body fat. It's 100% for baby!
And his name, you ask!?! We have had his name picked out since the beginning of the 2nd trimester but haven't told anybody! It's going to be a surprise! We did get him his first outfit to wear and it has his name on it! So we can't wait for our families to come see him the first time! =)
