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!)
Assuming you already exercise regularly, pregnancy doesn’t mean you need to stop training but it does mean you need to adjust it. If you don’t exercise, now you have a good reason to start! Exercise can help prepare your body for all the changes during pregnancy, for the marathon of birth and for all the work… Continue reading Workout Modifications & Tips For Training During Pregnancy
Hi! This was a busy weekend for me. My hubby and I attended a full day condenses pre natal class today which was actually great and I’m happy to recommend it. It’s the OCEA Pre Natal Course with Misty Pratt. Yesterday I presented at the saf camp and last night was spent the night with… Continue reading Meal Prep Nov 27th 2016
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
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
Baby G opens her eyes in the womb this week! Not much to look at really but still pretty cool. She’s got hair and eyelashes and I bet she is beautiful ( I may be biased. heheh) : ) My app tells me she’s the size of a head of lettuce or Kale (say what!?).… Continue reading 26 Weeks Pregnant
Alrighty here we go, another meal prep 😉 I’m finding my aversion to meats are strong during the day so I opted for more vegetarian protein sources for lunch this week. On the stovetop I cooked the following: Quinoa Chickpeas (I asked them first overnight with a little baking soda to help with digestion) White… Continue reading Meal Prep Nov 13th 2016
She’s the size of a cauliflower and my uterus is the size of a soccer ball! Holy moly. My app also says she’s somewhere between 1.5 and 2.5 pounds and is gaining daily. She’s also likely grabbing her toes and sucking them too. Part of me wants to whiz through the rest of this pregnancy… Continue reading 25 Weeks Pregnant
I went to town on veggies this week! I had a major hankering for veggies and fruit the week so that’s what we are having. I decided on a ton of roast root veggies plus greens. For lunches I roasted all the following with a little olive oil and Herbamere seasoning in one pan: Heirloom carrots… Continue reading Meal Prep Nov 6th 2016
Woohoo! This is a milestone week! 24 weeks means 6 months pregnant!! It also means viability which is a big deal. It means baby has a good chance of survival with medical support if she were to be born now. We don’t want that to happen though, it’s not a good scenario but amazing that… Continue reading 24 Weeks Pregnant – 6 month mark!!
Last week’s meals turned out great! The taco bowl was perfect for lunch and I also made it again today. At the last minute I decided to switch it up and do a this on my chipotle meatballs instead. The taco bowl worked well for me because it was filling, delicious, a good source of… Continue reading Meal Prep Oct 30th 2016
Baby is the size of a papaya and is just over a pound now. I can feel her getting heavier and bigger. Apparently she’s to double her weight in the next couple weeks too! Wow. My app says she’s sleeping in cycles of 12-14 hours and that she is aware of outside noise like dogs… Continue reading 23 Weeks Pregnant
Alright so here we go with another meal prep. How is the weekend so short!? I’m still working with some pregnancy induced food aversions so I’m having to be creative with my protein sources and recipes. For the most part I can handle ground meat as long as it’s combined with other foods well. I’m also… Continue reading Meal Prep Oct 23rd 2016
My baby is the size of a spaghetti squash! Wow. That explains the belly 😛 The carrot comparison last week was kind of strange but I think the app was focusing on length. This week the variety of apps say coconut, spaghetti squash or papaya. Also about 1 pound. She can see light and looks… Continue reading 22 Weeks Pregnant
Hello Sunday Meal Prep! How is it Sunday already? Where does the time go!? Last week my digestion was off and I didn’t feel great overall. That could be baby but it could also be some of the food choices I made. I had a few things daily that I don’t normally, like pumpkin pie… Continue reading Meal Prep October 16th 2016
I’m feeling time fly by now! I’m 21 weeks, which is 53% through, meaning 18 weeks left! Baby is about 26cm and 360g. My app says she’s the length of a carrot. That feels really long to be in there! I’m so short, this belly has no where to go but out. Haha. Her digestive… Continue reading 21 Weeks Pregnant
Happy Thanksgiving!!! I love this holiday. The weather, the food, the fam and the thanks. It’s perfect. This weekend I decided to cook up a little 10lb turkey for dinner on Saturday night. I figured I would have done a chicken anyway so why not get a little extra meat out of it. I did… Continue reading Meal Prep October 10th 2016 – Happy Thanksgiving!
Holy cow this week hit me like WHOA! Halfway done baking this babe. This week was a trigger for me to get Sh!t done. The last few weeks have been about baby being healthy and pregnancy going well. I was dealing with morning (all day) sickness and then a cold. I was resting a lot… Continue reading 20 Weeks Pregnant. Halfway Mark!
