WIAW: my 90/10 rule


Hi there!! I hope your week is going well and you are feeling great. Today I’m 21 weeks pregnant and moving right along. I don’t want to jinx anything but my energy has been up this week and this is the best I have felt so far. I’m pumped about that.


I’ve always focused on healthy eating even but with a little baby growing inside of me I’ve been working a little harder at it. Some of my strong cravings for chocolate have gotten the best of me this trimester but I’m trying to keep my food focus on 90% healthy 10% fun.

Let me tell you that 10% has been put towards brownies, it’s so good it’s bad ;) I’m not even lying. It’s all about balance right?

Anyways, I’m linking up with the WIAW crew over on Arman’s blog today to share my food journal with you from Monday. I think I ate pretty healthy and all my meals were satisfying and delicious.

 Breakfast was 2 eggs with peppers & potatoes. Eggs are my thing!


After I taught Group Power I ate a banana as I was walking to my car. My biceps were feeling it more then usual, it was a good one.

Once I got home I had a chocolate shakeology,


a blueberry bran muffin from Trader Joe’s which ironically had not ONE blueberry in it. Go figure I get that one.


I also had a handful of mixed nuts. 


Ava and I headed back to the Y around 10/1015am and she played at Childcare while I taught my Fit For Life class. Again my biceps were feeling a burn.

When we got home I fixed Ava her lunch (a stuffed shell, some chicken & applesauce) and I made myself a bowl of salad to eat with her. It had romaine, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers & balsamic dressing.

I then had a second bowl and this sandwich with chicken, roasted peppers, lettuce and a little mayo.

Ava and I read a book and then she started to get over tired from her busy weekend so I put her down for a nap.

My afternoon consisted of blog writing, fitness coaching, and eating this orange!!

Oranges are one of my favorite fruits right now.


Around 3 o’clock I needed a real snack so I had Siggi’s Yogurt topped with granola, blackberries & grapes, I swear there is yogurt in there!!


Dinner wasn’t anything crazy and was actually quite random. I had a bowl of Turkey Chili with beans & brown rice.


Plus a side of shaved brussel sprout salad


that was sautéed with balsamic & olive oil. It was delicious but it didn’t really pair well together.

Marc had a basketball game at night so I used the time to kick my feet up and relax after I put Ava to sleep. I snacked on a bowl of blackberries and when Marc got home we shared some Trader Joe’s popcorn. That stuff is addicting!!!


That’s about it for the day :)

 Do you follow a 90/10 rule with healthy eating?

IF you have ever been pregnant before what were some of your cravings?

  1. My craving right now are relatively normal, for once, but then again, there’s little to no room in this belly of mine. I’ve been digging PB and chocolate chips, because you know, I’m healthy. A few weeks ago I was DYING for tuna, which is weird since I kind of hate it..

    • MMMM PB & Choc chips is an amazing combo. I’m so happy my body is now craving peanut butter again. Ive also had some tuna cravings!!
      I hope you are feeling great!

  2. That jar of mixed nuts is SOOOO addictive. I have such a hard time stopping at one handful.
    I think I probably follow more of an 80/20 rule in general. Being in school makes it hard to be consistent! I am okay with that for now.

    • Hi Kate, I do agree those nuts are addicting. I can’t eat them straight out of the container or else it’s trouble.

      80/20 is also a good balance!! I think as long as you enjoy the foods you love in balance life is good ;)

  3. Those chocolate shakeology shakes look like milkshakes. It looks like you are really good at eating well for you and your precious baby.

    • Thanks Emily!! I’m trying to eat healthy but I’m definitely giving into more of my cravings. It’s been so different this time around. I never had strong cravings during my first pregnancy, but I’m rolling with it!

  4. Your breakfast is making me want to have BREAKFAST FOODS ALL DAY LONG today! :)

    • I’m obsessed with breakfast and could eat it for every meal!! Especially with runny egg yolks!!!

  5. Hey! It was my first time stopping in but loved the post, and your eats! YUM!

  6. That chocolate smoothie looks awesome!
