it's happening again!  i have worn a size 10 shoe since i stopped growing.  for some strange reason my feet shrink when i get preggo.  seriously!  you would expect the opposite, right!?  i walked away from a successful shoe shopping trip with these adorable, peep-toe nine's and another 9.5 pair (both reduced waaaay low, woo hoo!), which worked in my favor because 10 wasn't available in either.  luckily these skinny jeans are super stretchy and can support my expanding bump a lil' while longer.  i am loving flounce tops like this one and the off-the-shoulder look is needed for this unforgiving Texas summer heat. whew.

calling all Greek freaks and Niko Niko lovers!!! Niko Niko's new I-10 & Beltway 8 location is now open!  did you ever catch Niko Niko's on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives with Guy Fieri on Food Network? well deserved appearance, no doubt. they were already on Houston's map though!Hubs and i didn't mind taking the drive into the city to the original Montrose location, but we're cool with them meeting us halfway :) . ironically, it's 30 seconds away from my gym. #uhohthey knew the crowd was on its way so they were well equipped with this huge, accommodating, dining room. nice. i wasn't too hungry but still wanted to enjoy an outing with my bears.  i stuck with their seafood soup + greek salad combo.  their greek salad has always been and will always be THE bomb!  also chose to go light because eating late always ends up being a terrible idea.  i wake up burping up the food i ate the night before because it hasn't finished digesting yet. ugh! all apart of the preggo process though. (remember, this helps with that!)

everything on this plate is a fan favorite.  the seasoned, tender lamb, the soft, chewy pita bread, the crispy, non-oily fries, the buttery rice, and that one-of-a-kind tzatziki sauce. #herculesplate

pita pizza (which i don't even think is on the menu but was customized for us)and pita chicken quesadillas for the boys.talents:  picking dessert.as i stood there dumbfounded, several people had the same idea and came up to snap pics of this massive, goodie filled dessert case. you can't help it!portion control on deck! 3 for 5 bucks. tiramisu, almond something, and chocolate something. lol. my sweet cravings are coming back unfortunately and fruit just ain't cuttin' it these days.  doing my best to lean on the 80/20 nutrition rule, move 5-6 times a week, and drink plenty of water. ya know, the usual!

Q: do you like Greek food?

happy BUMP day!

 got a 1-on-1 session with my girl, Amaka, bright and early this morning.  i filmed a snippet of her squatting for two on my snap chat; did you see it!? hello, snap chat is WAY fun. apparently i've been missing out.  sorry not sorry, periscope.20160302_090730-01

fact or myth: if you have never exercised (or its been a good while since you've done anything) then pregnancy is not the time to start.

MYTH! pregnancy is not the time to go for a new squat PR, give flag football a try, or train for a marathon... obvi!  it's no excuse to spend almost 10 months on the couch either though.  start with low impact things like brisk walking, swimming/water aerobics, and light/moderate, basic weight lifting.  in most cases exercise helps fight back strong against fatigue, mood swings, aches, pains, stiffness, swelling, and discomfort.

y'all. this bra.  sassy, strappy, stylish, and most important, supportive.  out of all the bras i've tested these past few months for my prenatal and postpartum fit moms, this was number one in my book, ladies! i could not wait to share this sneak peek!  i have bought and gone through a ton of cheap sports bras over the years to support my active lifestyle, but eventually i began to purchase them with my handbag mentality.  that just means i'm willing to shell out a little more than i normally would in exchange for top quality, durability, cuteness, color, and support all in one.  i finally found that in this bra, no doubt. 

fabric + features

  • Luxtreme® fabric is cool-to-the-touch and sweat-wicking 
  • added Lycra® fibre bends with you and stays in great shape
  • pockets for optional, removable cups
  • designed to provide support for C/D cups - even 36DDD!

the back is gorgeous, right!?  coral is one of my fave spring colors. i've put this thing through intense HIIT sessions, plyometrics, running/sprinting, and weight lifting, and it passed each one with flying colors.  the 'girls' are always comfy and secure, and it never feels like i have an inner tube tucked under my arms. i do a lot of jumping in my classes but i have no nip slip fear because of the full coverage.  my compression crops are heavily discounted right now and almost sold out!!  i got them for black friday last year.
