Workouts – Last week (June 9 – June 15)
  • 3.1 miles on the elliptical
  • 2 hours of kayaking
  • 1 hour prenatal yoga
  • 3.5 miles on the elliptical
Symptoms: Hugeness. Is feeling huge a symptom? If so I have it!
Movement: Baby moves all the time and I love the movement. It’s kinda crazy that sometimes the movement surprises me after all these weeks. Like how could I forget it was there as large as I am!
What I’m eating: I’m officially on the smaller, more frequent meals plan. If I try to eat my normal amount for lunch or dinner I get so uncomfortable and almost feel sick. I’m still loving salads and fruit and fruit in my salad…especially strawberries and dried cranberries. Chicken salad or tuna salad on top is great! Lemon dressing is my top choice. Lemon hummus with rice crackers. Nectarines. Smoothies for breakfast (we ate 2 bunches of bananas last week!). Earth Balance peanut coconut spread on piece of toast with jam or apple butter. I like to eat chicken (grilled or baked) with sliced avocado and cheese. My favorite meal eaten out last week was seared scallops over risotto with peas.
Drinking: Lots of water, kombucha, orange pineapple juice, and Nepresso decaf coffee in the morning with french vanilla coconut milk creamer.
Looking forward to: The babies nursery is almost complete. I’m waiting to share the pics when I get my new rocking chair because I feel like it will finish off the room. Every week I go to the store or order some things online to keep checking things off the list of baby stuff still needed. Last week I used a couple gift cards to buy a baby bath, baby thermometer, some size 1 diapers and baby lotion. I also ordered a waterproof crib mattress cover, a Natursutten pacifier and diaper bag online. Some items still on my list are a breast pump, bottles, baby monitor, baby Tylenol, a reusable wet/dry bag, baby detergent and a nursing cover. Because the babies gender is a surprise I’ll need to do some clothes shopping after the birth. I only have 2 packs of onesies and 2-3 gender neutral outfits!
