Howdy friends, how’s life?
Life for me is jussssssst dandy. If you follow me on instagram, you know that I recently shared a photo of what it looks like in Chicago (HERE). It’s snowy, freezing and overall miserable. But, on the bright side, at least I’m pregnant and feel perfectly content sitting my lazy rump on the couch. 🙂
I happen to be feeling somewhat like my old self and therefore, I’m not AS embarrassed about what I’ve been eating these days so I thought I would share a couple of things. So here goes nothin’…
This is what breakfast has looked like lately: fruit, egg whites and turkey sausage with a side of english muffin
I also made Bryan’s favorite: mashed banana, egg whites, walnuts, strawberries and almond butter
Lunch has been pretty boring, I typically bring a salad and then also go pick up either a soup or sandwich from somewhere nearby. On this particular day, I made a spinach salad with dates, pears, walnuts and goat cheese tossed with olive oil and agave – I think I got a veggie sandwich on wheat from Corner Bakery as well (no photo because I feel like a weirdo taking pictures of my food at work).
Dinner has been all around the board including: chili, meatball subs, tacos and…PIZZA!!! Seriously, who am I?
Despite the abundance of shitty food choices of late, I have managed to keep my snacking pretty normal/healthy; typically, I go for fruit and yogurt (I used to eat carrots a lot but carrots are DISGUSTING these days, such as life).
Working out these days has also been a struggle. I’ve noticed that either a) I am just too lazy to bring myself to the gym or 2) I am having one of those days where I just feel like dog shit. However, even still, I’ve managed to get my whoopie cakes (according to the internets, this is another name for “butt”) to the gym about 4 times a week. Last week I did this walking workout on the treadmill:
The other day this woman in the elevator at work asked me “I heard you are 5 months pregnant, is that true?” to which I replied “why yes, yes it is” … Apparently, I don’t really look like I’m showing which I guess just means I look like I’m getting fat, ha! Actually, I think I look like I’m showing. Here’s a side shot so you can decide for yourself:
On second thought, I guess this picture doesn’t really show much so here is one with my shirt up (I apologize for the grainy picture, there is zero natural light in my apartment so pretty much all my pictures look like they were taken with a disposable camera):
How have your meals looked lately? Any good recipes?

Love seeing another prego who loves to eat and cook healthy! It feels great and I know I’m doing great things for this little guy. My diet is very similar to yours.
It can be hard at time but I think it will be totally worth it in the end…keep up the good work!
your bobbies are huge!!!
I KNOW! I hate it 😦
