it's happening again :shock: . food aversions have returned and all i want for breakfast, lunch, and dinner is Subway!!! so i had some last night for dinner. yes, the entire thing in one sitting. don't worry, it fit my macros, lol. i've been randomly putting my meals in MyFitnessPal just to make sure i'm somewhere in the ball park of my daily requirements. anyway, thanks Sonny, you're awesome.
it's a turkey breast sammich on honey oat bread with all the veggies except onions and jalapeños with honey mustard. hadn't had one since the 1st trimester and boy was it as tasty as i remember.
uncomfy , eh? understatement. i enjoy the constant reminder that Odego is awake, moving around and doing his thing in here. however, i feel every single twist, turn, kick, punch, head butt, and cartwheel. all of it. just like Chiso, he gets wired up as soon as i get settled in the bed at night. but thankfully it doesn't hinder my sleep one bit.
let's talk about these energy levels though! this baby is siphoning mine off day by day and i knew that was coming...just not so dang soon. so most mornings,
i wake up like that.
but this morning before teaching my 5:30am weights class i felt good. like really good again. maybe i should eat foot long Subway sammiches before bed more often.
10 weeks left yall!!! :shock: WAT. i'll explain more about that #pregnantNOTpowerless hashtag in a bit.
ironically, i'm most uncomfortable when i'm dormant or at home cleaning and picking up random stuff off the floor. i do all this working out at the gym but when i see something on the floor at home that's not where it's supposed to be most times i just leave it there LOL. why is it so much more of a challenge then?! idk. i've been sleeping with one of those body pillows from Target for the past 4 months now and i highly recommend one. you can splurge and get the real thing too.
still not caring for sweets, just all things dairy, mainly cheese. but every now and then i'll make this guy instead of going to get fro-yo, soft serve at BK, or a McFlurry - a low-dairy chocolate milkshake at home. i'm totally satisfied after slurping this guilt-free concoction down. try it! throw this in your blender:
- 3/4 cup cookies and cream or vanilla maple Arctic Zero ice cream
- 1/4 cup + (2 tbsp or so if needed) unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 2 tbsp Hershey's sugar-free chocolate syrup + more swirled in your glass ;)
before i made coconut whipped cream (which is dairy-free) for the first time a few days ago, i just used fat-free Reddi Whip and chocolate sprinkles for my topping. legit yumminess for a total of:
this little boy here. he has his 'Odego Time' every single day, multiple times a day. he GETS it now. his little brother is on the way and he can't wait to slide down the slide with him at the park. his words, lol. i was worried about how he would be affected (and still somewhat am after he arrives) and i'm reading up on how to make this transition easiest for him. heck, all of us. any tips moms, please share!
you have a bigger influence on your kiddos than you think! i just knew the park would be way more exciting than lil ol' me, but as soon as we got there he asked, 'mama can we make a video? i want to exercise with you.' floored. so that's how our 30 week playground workout came about.
