Workouts – Last week (May 12 – May 18).
  • 2.5 miles on elliptical
  • 1 hour Barre class
  • 1 hour prenatal yoga
  • 1 hour spin
Symptoms: The pain/discomfort in my tailbone area when I sit is sticking around. It may be caused by the babies position and therefore may be here to stay until the end. We’ll see. I hate that the heat wears me out because I usually love the heat of spring and summer. See below for how I’ve been dealing with it!
Movement: I’m starting to feel kicks in my ribs. I love it when the baby the moving around, every time it happens I think, “I love you baby.”
What I’m eating: This week I changed up from my regular coconut or vanilla yogurt and got plain. It’s really good with honey drizzled over the top of the granola and fruit. I roasted some bone-in chicken breast that was delish! The leftovers got turned into equally delish chicken salad that we had for lunch for 2 days. My favorite veggies last were zucchini and onions that I cooked in coconut oil and my diced baked sweet potatoes. I made a layered dip with lots of avocado mashed with lime juice as the base, some refried beans, a little sour cream and salsa on the top. That was my lunch on Sunday with some Late July tortilla chips. A little frozen yogurt or fruit popsicle is a must in the evenings after dinner.
Drinking: Zevia Ginger Ale. Kombucha. Ice water. Unsweetened iced tea with lemon. Nepresso decaf coffee.
Enjoying: The fact that our pool is finally warm enough to get in and float around in! I’ve spent over an hour floating around each day for the last 4 days!

Looking forward to: Our wedding on May 30th. I’m trying to enjoy all the planning that has been required. I really can’t complain…everything is falling into place like I planned it months in advance.
