Food, Fitness, Pregnancy, And Winter Break

Hello, all! With 2018 coming to an end, I just can’t help but reflect on my pregnancy journey so far. From medicine that made me sick, to shots, to IUI’s, to finally seeing “positive” on 3 pregnancy tests, it has been a whirlwind. And in just 8ish short weeks we will be meeting our baby girl. What a blessing!!

I am pretty uncomfortable at this point, and I am so tired I have been napping every day of break (even when I get plenty of sleep). I’m a bit nervous about working and feeling so rough!

Anyway, this break has been full of resting, cleaning, and getting prepped for baby girl!

Bibibop from our Friday date night!! It was delicious! Then we saw Aquaman.

Last night’s dinner was tilapia, sweet potato fries, and veggies. Yum!


I made it to a spin class this week (I lasted 30 minutes).

For other cardio, I’m sticking to the elliptical, arc trainer, and lateral machine.

For strength, I am continuing prenatal pure barre videos.

I’m feeling pretty good still during my workouts, which is so nice!


I’ve done a few face masks, taken baths, and tried to just relax as much as I can right now.

Just a cute picture of my Maverick!

Well friends, that’s all for today! Have a safe and fun New Year! I will be at home snuggled up to my husband, cats, and little lady!

With love,

  2. Um, all your food photos just made me irrationally hungry! Especially the tilapia one. I need it in my body ASAP. I have to commend you on continuing to hit the gym when youโ€™re so close to having the wee one! I know I gave up on that venture when I was about eight weeks pregnant, ha. Happy New Year! I canโ€™t wait to follow along in 2019!

    1. Haha I sure love my food!! The tilapia was so tasty! Thank you! I’ve definitely cut back a ton, but keeping my body moving has helped so much….physically and mentally. Happy New Year to you, too! Looking forward to following along with you as well! ๐Ÿ˜Š


  3. Those bibibop bowls look so yummy! I’m so sorry you’re feeling uncomfortable but that’s so impressive you’re still working out. Can’t believe baby is so close to being born! โ™ก
