Fairbanks Fitness Derby!

Monday, October 1, 2012
  Early in August Kevin and I competed in a fitness derby put on by our local Crossfit gym, Crossfit Fairbanks. We had signed up for it just for the challenge, not taking it too seriously. I was not expecting to place 12th out of 20 amazing female athletes and was so proud of Kevin getting 11th place out of about 30+ men. It was definitely a great experience and was so fun for Kevin and I to do as a couple.
  During one event I was on the rowing machine trying to keep a steady pace when I started to get very light headed. I nearly rolled off! Other than that little spell, I did not feel too bad. Little did we know I was pregnant! About 4 weeks pregnant to be exact.
  I was worried because I was lifting weights like usual.. probably over doing it as usual. So I was anxious to have an ultrasound done to make sure Baby Sommer was alive and kicking. After having the ultra sound done at 9 weeks and 5 days, I felt better about carrying on my Crossfit ways. The only things I'm currently doing differently in my workout routine are the amount of breaks I let myself take for water, and not increasing my weight while lifting but trying to maintain what I was doing before my ego got prego. My power clean has already gone down from 125 to 115! It's kinda of hard to see my numbers go down, but watching my belly go up is definitely worth it.

Cleaning 125- my Personal Record

I had already done the event Kevin was doing, 
I earned the right to be a little silly.

Pretty sweet "during" picture right?! 

Thanks to my StepMom for taking awesome 
action shots!
