We made it through all the holidays, did you?? This is our family business’s busiest time of year and
our first year juggling the busy season, homeschool, pregnancy and a few home renovations all in a very short amount of time! It seems that this season of craziness has come to a resting place, though, and we are ready to return to normal life…until this spring when the baby shows up. 🙂
I’ll admit, after losing a ton of weight and being in the best shape of my adult life, it is kind of hard to go back in the other direction for the better part of a year. I’m not getting wound-up about it, though, because I know post-partum fitness is attainable! This pregnancy, I am focusing on maintaining a (mostly) clean and vegetarian diet, and simply not over eating or binge eating. I am allowing myself grace when it comes to cravings, but not letting them overpower my goal for having a healthy pregnancy. I’m also doing my best to drink more water. That’s always been a problem for me in pregnancies past. It’s not that I don’t love water, I just don’t like to be bothered with so many trips to the bathroom so I ignore my fluid intake. I know – bad. bad. bad.
I have also been posting some kid-friendly dinner recipes on my Facebook page and hope to report some of those to you, as well. Let me know what kinds of things you’d like to see and I will add them to our meal plan. 🙂 We also got a new crockpot and waffle maker for Christmas, so hopefully I can post about some fun recipes on that end, soon, as well.
Meanwhile? You *might* want to check your local Costco to see if this Trek Mix is in stock. It is SO MUCH FLAVOR. And? I don’t feel bad eating it.
