Meal Prep January 22nd 2017

I’ve been meal prepping on Sundays for years. Like probably 20 years. At least 10 years in this more structured way anyway. Today was a day that I just couldn’t do it. It happens. Sometimes we are too busy or too tired or just not able and that’s ok! In my case today I was… Continue reading Meal Prep January 22nd 2017

35 Weeks Pregnant – Breech baby!

This week’s events were rather unexpected. We found out this baby is breech and not head down like initially thought. I wasn’t feeling well at the beginning of the week. Nausea, sore and swollen. Not sleeping, feeling suffocated and I also noticed some new groin pain. Overall just not feeling great. Then at my midwifery… Continue reading 35 Weeks Pregnant – Breech baby!

Meal Prep Jan 15th 2017

I actually did meal prep yesterday morning before heading to present at the Serious About Fitness Camp because I knew today was a crazy day. We have another prenatal course all day, car seat inspection, and then a work event scheduled in the evening. It’s been a busy few weeks actually! I went with the… Continue reading Meal Prep Jan 15th 2017

34 Weeks Pregnant

So this is considered 8.5 months pregnant. Wowza. This week was a bit rough in terms of being tired, especially at the beginning of the week. I just had so much on the go, overbooked with things to do and I’m not sleeping well at all. I find it really takes about 3-4 days for… Continue reading 34 Weeks Pregnant

Meal Prep Sunday Jan 8th 2016

Today was spent at another prenatal course so I improvised a bit for mealprep. This Sunday and next Sunday we are taking a course called Bringing Baby Home through the OCEA. ? Today the class ran 9-4 and then we stopped to run a few errands and had shawarma for dinner (so we didn’t have… Continue reading Meal Prep Sunday Jan 8th 2016

33 Weeks Pregnant

I got sick again!! I got another cold, can’t believe it. I went years without getting sick and since being pregnant this is my second cold. It’s the worst, especially without decongestant drugs. Most of my family got it just after Christmas, my hubby too. His man cold was intense and just as he was… Continue reading 33 Weeks Pregnant

Meal Prep Jan 2 2017 + Lentil Soup Recipe

First meal prep of 2017! Typically I’d have some kind of fun meal prep plan to ring in the new year but this year I’m sneezing and sniffling and full of mucus and my belly is so heavy I can hardly stand long enough to to cook an egg. Not ideal. Hahaha. I still need… Continue reading Meal Prep Jan 2 2017 + Lentil Soup Recipe

32 Weeks Pregnant ( 8 months!!)

Holy crap this is what 8 months pregnant looks like (for me). This week has been one that I’ve noticed a lot of changes happening. Swelling, cramps, Braxton hicks, pelvic pain (PGP), peeing like crazy and this belly dropped more and grew a lot this past week. Baby seems to be fine in there. She’s about the… Continue reading 32 Weeks Pregnant ( 8 months!!)

NYE 2016! Reflection and Intentions

I just re-read last year’s post about New Year’s and I feel so grateful. 2016 was good to me. Ultimately I wanted to start a family and as I’m writing this I’m 8 months pregnant and can feel baby girl moving around inside me. This is 2016’s biggest gift to me. I also had a… Continue reading NYE 2016! Reflection and Intentions

31 Weeks Pregnant

31 weeks and feeling good! This week was another pretty good one, as my midwife says ‘just coasting’ along. Baby is the size of a Pineapple (or large movie popcorn or Hunter rain boot according to a few other apps hahah). Her five senses are now in working order and her brain is developing rapidly.… Continue reading 31 Weeks Pregnant

Meal Prep Dec 18th 2016

Last week’s meals were great for me. Filling, satisfying and met my nutritional needs. I’m still working with 120g protein, 254g carbs and 93g protein but I try to change it up what I eat week to week but sometimes staying the same is ok too! I almost made the same thing this week but… Continue reading Meal Prep Dec 18th 2016

30 Weeks Pregnant

30 weeks pregnant sounds really pregnant to me! Yeah, I also feel really pregnant these days! Haha. 30 weeks is also 7.5 months. Full term is considered 37-40 weeks meaning baby can be safely born at that stage although but most first time moms go into labor closer to 41 weeks. Not always though, that’s… Continue reading 30 Weeks Pregnant

Meal Prep December 11th 2016

I got to meal prep early today. I’m learning that as this baby belly gets bigger my stamina for standing in the kitchen gets compromised. I just can’t do it! If I start cooking early I can get a lot more done before I need to rest and seeing as how I’m trying to make… Continue reading Meal Prep December 11th 2016

29 Weeks Pregnant

This week was better than last week in terms of how I was feeling overall. I seem to have gotten the reflux/heartburn under control and the back pain is lessened a bit too. Baby Garcia is moving often and her movements are much stronger. She’s about the size of a cabbage (think folded in fetal… Continue reading 29 Weeks Pregnant

This week is the start of the 3rd trimester. It’s also 7 months pregnant. I’m totally in awe with my body and the miracle that is creating life. I’m also a little obsessed with my belly. Our bodies are really incredible. Baby is about the size of a an eggplant. One of my other apps… Continue reading 28 Weeks Pregnant (7 months pregnant!)

This is the end of my 2nd trimester! What the heck!? How did that happen. I’m now 13 weeks out and that rocks my world. Ha! Baby is apparently the size of a head of lettuce and growing rapidly over the next few weeks. She’s about 14.5 inches long and 2.5 lbs now and she… Continue reading 27 Weeks Pregnant

Meal Prep Nov 20th 2016

So last week’s vegetarian protein heavy meals didn’t work well for my digestion. At least I’m pretty sure that was the problem. That’s the second time I tried to rely more on plant-based protein for most meals and really didn’t feel great. Looks like as much as I’d like to cut back on the animal… Continue reading Meal Prep Nov 20th 2016
