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?
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?
