Hi, all! Well, I’m less than a week away from my 3rd trimester, which is crazy! It is officially a struggle due to some terrible back pain. I tried on the dress for my baby shower today and just can’t believe how much my belly is growing.
*Baby girl is potentially laying on a nerve and it hurts to even walk. This makes work tough, but I have my amazing work bestie who helps me out all the time.
*Leg cramps: they come in the middle of the night and are excruciating.
*Continued acne and redness on my face.
*Hungry ALL the time….like so hungry haha
Pregnancy is hard as it is beautiful. I do love my growing belly and have SO much to be greatful for.
*Baby kicks: they literally are amazing.
*A healthy, growing baby girl.
*A husband that rubs out cramps in the middle of the night and helps me put my shoes on in the morning.
THIS WEEK IN FOOD:
Pasta, turkey meatballs, and toast.
Taco salad with coconut oil fried plantain.
Veggie burger (I had 2) and corn.
My hash/stew that was delicious! It had chunks of turkey, coconut oil fried sweet potatoes, onions, mushrooms, and a can of cream of mushroom soup. YUMMMM!
My bowl with toast. I love healthier comfort food!
THIS WEEK IN FITNESS:
I have done super low impact this week due to my back pain. I want to stay active and healthy, yet listen to my body and take it easy.
MONDAY: I took an upper body workout class at my gym. I avoided the cardio they did, but still lifted a little.
TUESDAY: I went for a swim which felt good to get cardio without impact.
WEDNESDAY: Pure barre video
THURSDAY: I did the stationary bike, then stretched out.
FRIDAY: A short pure barre video
This upcoming weekend will be busy, but I’m excited for it!!! Tomorrow, we are heading to Cincinnati for my niece’s first birthday party. It is about a 2 hour drive each way so we will be gone most of the day.
Sunday is my baby shower!! Yay!
I hope you all have a great weekend! With love,
