41 Weeks Pregnant

Anytime now! This week was interesting. Lots of moments where I thought “this might be it” and then nothing. I’m not overly stressed about being past my due date, I actually expected it but the thing is because of the breech scenario I’m under a more careful watch not to go “overdue”. Kind of annoying… Continue reading 41 Weeks Pregnant

38 Weeks Pregnant

Home stretch over here! I can’t believe it really, this baby’s arrival is so soon! (could be a couple weeks but still so soon!) This week was a pretty good week overall. It really made a difference to be off work. Even though I had a really busy week with appointments and things to do… Continue reading 38 Weeks Pregnant

Meal Prep Jan 29th 2017

My prepped meals these last few weeks of pregnancy are choices that are quicker and easier. I just can’t stand up in the kitchen for any length of time. It’s crazy what extra weight feels like on your joints and ligaments. I’ve only got an extra 32lbs on this bod, what the heck would I… Continue reading Meal Prep Jan 29th 2017

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

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

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

Meal Prep Nov 13th 2016

Alrighty here we go, another meal prep ūüėČ 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

Meal Prep Oct 30th 2016

Last week’s meals turned out great! The taco bowl was perfect for lunch and I almost 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

Meal Prep October 16th 2016

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

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!

We had a Serious About Fitness Camp today so this meal prep was done in high speed mode this morning. I did it all in the oven at the same time to save time. I made one of my fav ‘winter’ meals.
