Happy Hump day. I’m pretty sure short weeks are the best and I’m loving that it’s Wednesday already!!
I am currently 34 weeks pregnant and counting down the days until my due date…. 42. That number keeps getting smaller and my excitement keeps growing. I want to meet this baby boy so bad but first I need to get to full term (37 weeks) and then he can come whenever.
My food has been pretty healthy these past few weeks but my meals have been random and sometimes not complete meals. I tend to eat a little here and there rather then big meals. My belly gets full a little quicker so smaller more frequent meals does the trick!
I figured I would share my food journal with you from Memorial Day (Monday)
My morning started off as usual since I had to teach the 730am Group Power class at the YMCA.
I ate 2 eggs scrambled with spinach and potatoes, I also had a couple bites of a chocolate chip muffin. I was feeling a little nauseous and for some reason sugar does the trick!!
I wasn’t sure if I would have a normal size group or if people would sleep in on the holiday but most of my regulars were there and we were excited for a workout.
I came home to refuel with a delicious banana and a Peanut Butter Square Bar.
Of course Ava saw me eating one so I opened another one and gave her 1/2. We are both hooked!!
Around 11am I was still hungry and snacked on some baby carrots and watermelon.
We took Cooper for a quick walk since the rain kind of stopped and then it was time for lunch.
We decided to eat at home since the weather was still iffy to go out. I had a salad with greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, BBQ grilled chicken, honey mustard dressing and sunflower seeds! This has been one of my favorite spring salads lately.
I was still hungry so I had an apple and a piece of toast with lots of peanut butter.
Ava was exhausted from our weekend of fun in the sun at the beach and decided to take a nap which was totally fine with me. I was tired myself! So I spent time laying on the couch and relaxing. She woke up around 3pm and I had a quick yogurt parfait snack. Geek yogurt with blackberries grapes & strawberries plus a little granola on top.
We headed to the grocery store to get some food so Marc could grill my family a nice dinner. We had burgers, honey mustard chicken, green beans, potato salad, tossed salad, baked beans, etc.
This was my plate
but my dad’s plate looked a lot better
I also ate 1/2 of a burger that Ava didn’t eat. How could I not, don’t they look delicious? I was STUFFED and satisfied after that meal.
My family hung out and we had fun playing with Ava until she went to bed.
My sweet tooth kicked in around 830pm and I decided to make a quick batch of somewhat healthy dark chocolate brownies. I used applesauce to replace some of the oil… and they were delicious!
This little boy has me craving chocolate and I’m not complaining!! This brownie sundae totally hit the spot.
It was a great ending to a long weekend
