WIAW: Love and Hate for food


I officially have 4 weeks left until my due date, 28 days is not a lot of time and I’m overly excited!

I apologize for being MIA on here lately. To be honest I’ve been quite tired and any free moment I get, I’m totally kicking my feet up or closing my eyes. Ava’s sleep has been all over the place these past 2 weeks and it is catching up with both of us!  I have been sleeping on average about 6 hrs per night which is not enough. My body needs all the rest it can get now before this baby arrives so if she naps, I almost always try to close my eyes myself.

Anyways, I did keep track of my food from Monday. It started off as a pretty solid day of food but then when 5pm struck my love for food turned into hate. I literally opened the fridge 100 times between 5-10pm and nothing jumped out at me. I didn’t want to eat anything…


So here’s my day of eats:

Monday morning started off early with a 6am alarm clock. I was still tired but my day starts early so I needed to get ready.

I opted for a simple scrambled eggs with spinach and potatoes.  A little while later I made Marc and Ava breakfast and ate 1/2 a piece of toast because I was still a little hungry.


After teaching Group Power I refueled with a banana right after class.


Once I got home I ate some Cheerios and cashews. (I also ate Ava’s leftover egg not pictured)


Oh and an apple that Ava and I split. The YMCA was giving members Apples so how could we not have one?!


I headed back to the YMCA to teach my second class around 10:15am. It’s funny to me that I always leave both classes starving!

Lunch was leftover Thai Food. I had Chicken with broccoli, carrots, eggplant, zucchini and baby corn with brown rice in a brown sauce. Simple but delicious!!! I actually wish there was more leftover.


Peaches are a daily occurrence these days and I had one with my lunch.


Around 245 I dove into my afternoon snack. Yogurt with Berries & Granola. I love this stuff and it never gets old.


We headed to my parents around 3 to play outside, walk Cooper and hang out for a bit. Ava loves going to Grandma & Grandpa’s house and I do too! She gets to play with different toys and their neighborhood is great for being outside.

We left around 5pm and headed home for dinner. Ava and I were starving. When we got home I fixed her a play of food while I contemplated what to eat myself.

I ate a side salad with romaine, cucumbers, tomatoes & peppers.


I had anticipated to eat some leftover chicken cutlet but took one bite and almost threw up. I thought my taste buds were off. I made marc try it and he was skeptical. I wasn’t sure if it was the dipping sauce or what but I was immediately grossed out. From that point on my dinner became a disaster. I tried BBQ grilled chicken, same issue.. tasted funny.

So I ended up eating 2 meatballs and tortilla chips. Somehow I managed to fill my belly a little.


(UGLY picture but I ate them cold and with no sauce so I’m weird)

Around 8pm my belly was hungry and I wasn’t surprised. The only thing that sound or looked appealing was a grilled cheese so I quickly made a grilled cheese on wheat bread. YUM!


it was simple and perfect in every way.

I love when Marc cuts watermelon because it’s a snack that’s hydrating, tasty, healthy and I didn’t have to cut it ;) Ava and I stood in the kitchen as Marc was cutting the watermelon and pretty much ate as much as we could!

Around 10 pm I had a KIND bar and that wrapped up my night of random eats.


I am hoping that this love & hate towards food doesn’t last long. I would much rather love all foods but lately my body dislikes more food then it likes. I almost feel like I’m back in the first trimester, help!!!

  1. Yesterday I celebrated a friend’s birthday and we shared some yummy bruschetta- and pot de creme! Yum!

  2. It’s amazing how bodies just don’t like or want certain foods during pregnancy… I’ve never been pregnant, but that seems to be what I’ve observed. I hope you get back to loving all foods soon, but I think your eats look REALLY varied and delicious!

    • You are right Emily! It truly is amazing that our bodies sometimes need and want certain foods. I am more in touch with my body now and I try to listen to those cues. I hope I have more foods I want to eat this week :)

  3. Those KIND bars are soooo good. And hey, sometimes you just need a grilled cheese, haha. that’s one of those go-to dinners around here because we always have bread and cheese!

    • I love KIND bars. They have been my go to 10pm snack haha.

      Aren’t grilled cheeses amazing?? they take 2 minutes to cook and they are so tasty!

  4. Ugh, I am not pregnant, but I do totally understand this “love and hate” relationship. With gut issues or even mood and simple fatigue… it can really affect our taste and hunger experience. Grilled cheese is the perfect remedy for this though, I think. Comforting, simple and delicious. Hope this doesn’t last long for you!!

    • Thanks Cora. It’s funny how much food really effects our daily live and even our mood & energy. I hope you don’t run into any dislikes for food like me, its not fun!! Hopefully it gets better this week :)

  5. Ah, I hate when I don’t have any appetite or food cravings. The worst!

    • I know! luckily it’s only been happening after 5pm so I guess it could be worse but still I love food and don’t want this issue.
