Special WOD!

Well, today is a very special post for Kyle and I. It’s finally come the day where we get to share with you guys a secret that we have had to keep from you for almost two months now. Some of you know, some of you may know, and some have no idea. Well, it’s official, there’s a mini Kyle and Tenny growing in my belly!!! Crazy! I’m just over 12 weeks now and we are overjoyed and SO excited for this next step in our lives!!

It’s been so hard to keep this a secret, especially on the days I’ve been coaching and feel so fatigued that I want nothing more than to just be laying on the couch with a bowl of cereal (yes, Paleo or anything of the sort, is becoming a bit distance for me right now). I think it’s important for you guys to know too, because, as I’m encouraging you all to participate in our Biggest Loser Challenge, here I am… getting bigger and bigger! What kind of an example is that?! Well, I guess now it explains it a little. :-) Additionally, workouts for me are going to be a lot slower and less weight. It’s going (and has been) a really hard pill for me to swallow, but I’m slowly learning what is best for me.

I’m so excited for our baby and that he/she (although I’d bet my life its a girl) will get to grow up in this environment with all you amazing individuals in their life. It’s going to be so special. I’m SO thankful for you all being understanding with me over the past couple months if I have seemed out of it, looked like death (which I’ve heard from people but in very nice ways), or if my brain has been totally off. Which it has. There has been, and I’m sure will be, times where I completely mess up all my words in explaining workouts. Or, I get out of breath after one box jump demonstration :-) I’m finally out of the phase of complete fatigue and feeling more normal energy… so I hope to be back to a semi-normal—just getting bigger—Tenny-self. Yeah baby.

So, for todays WOD, which was the suggestion of a couple people, I kind of made it related to our little peanut. I don’t really like attention being drawn around me, so I was hesitant to do it this way, but I thought the idea was kind of fun. SO, 7 will represent “7 months left” and the 10 and 5 will represent the due date of 10/5. Hope you guys like the WOD, I want it to be brutal.

Much love guys.

    How can you not love a wod called “Baby Jacobson”? That baby is going to be a stud! I really hope the baby has Kyle’s hair. It’ll be so cute to watch him carrying it around with both of their hair sticking in the back. Im also hoping that lil thing does NOT inherit dads love for Journey.
