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!

I feel like whoa mamma she’s growing She’s also working on her sight, smell, taste and hearing and she’s also now covered in vernix (that white greasy stuff all over baby when… Continue reading 19 Weeks Pregnant
I love this weather! My absolute favourite. Get that Vitamin D! I’m still congested and coughing and I can’t really taste or smell but I don’t feel like death anymore so that’s good news! Being sick and pregnant is really not a nice combo. 😉 I decide to do meal prep a bit earlier today… Continue reading Meal Prep Sept 25th 2016
Unfortunately this week I caught a cold. I’m not entirely sure how it happened but it started with a sore throat Monday and Tuesday and by Wednesday I was congested and feeling rough. Thursday and Friday were mostly spent in bed and I’m still feeling pretty rough today. It’s been ages since I’ve had a… Continue reading 18 weeks pregnant

Sunday was a day trip to Montreal. I did meal prep yesterday… Continue reading Meal Prep Sept 17th
I’ve got a pomegranate in there! My app says Baby is about 13cm and 167 grams. She’s getting stronger bones and putting on a little fat in there too. Our umbilical cord is apparently really growing thicker and stronger now too. Pretty amazing. It’s all such a miracle! I’m beginning to love my baby bump. One… Continue reading 17 Weeks Pregnant
Reverse dieting is about bringing your calories, particularly carbs and fat up as high as you can for as long as you can with minimal (but still some) weight gain. It’s a time to stop dieting and to eat to fuel your body. It’s a time to build your metabolic capacity. Repair the damage dieting… Continue reading Reverse Dieting – My Results 2015-2016

Well my last post was all about how great I was feeling. I had an awesome workout last weekend and was feeling full of energy then boom Monday. I got the worst headache I’ve probably every had. Brutal! It could be described as a cluster migraine headache and lasted from Monday until Wednesday night. The… Continue reading 15 Weeks Pregnant
Holy shitballs it feels good not to want to barf all day! Ha! My nausea is pretty much gone and my energy was solid this weekend. My appetite is also back, oh so glorious!

It seems like I just wrote the 13 week update which is actually a bit of a good feeling because I think those first 12 weeks felt like they were standing still. They went by so slow! Each week that goes by I feel a little more secure in thinking this babe is safe, happy and… Continue reading 14 Weeks Pregnant
