What I Ate Wednesday

As I put this post together today, my husband looked at the pictures and noted that my “plate of food” looked kinda sad. I’ll let you be the judge of that – and I’m okay if it does – we have massive plates.

Afternoon snack: coconut greek yogurt, granola and blueberries (yum)

Okay, so this is where it looks like I eat nothing.

To be fair – the fish in this picture is the size of almost nothing.

When I cooked it on the BBQ in tin foil, I was highly disappointed in the outcome.

Note to self – cook more fish next time.

Lilly and I bought the yellow “beans” at a local farmers market.

She picked them all out but never ate any, hum!



My mother came down last week to help out with Lilly, as my husband was on rotation and I had to work a few days.

We each managed to be home a day or two but couldn’t cover the whole week.

You know, Mom’s make the best meals!

Since my husband is a vegan, and I have a picky toddler – we don’t eat meat that often.

This was the BEST pork dinner I’ve had in months – thanks Mom!

Last but not least – today’s lunch:

Good ol’ Peanut Butter and Banana sandwich on flax bread.


Now, I know I didn’t have amazing meals or pictures of great baked items.

And, I’m okay with that because I simply cannot do it all – all the time.

This is where I am struggle with fitness.

I’ve set my goals to run, dvd workouts, yoga, walking etc in this WIAW post on July 4th.

Well, my schedule has not permitted me to keep to these goals.

My pregnancy (19 weeks now) has given me a little set back  – I can’t run without having pain after.

And, with the heat/humidity we are having, I can’t manage to get in an evening workout.

Not to mention, our darling little girl does not like to go to bed early anymore (8:30/9pm).

So, I’m left to re-evaluate my goals once again.

On my last post, I posted a quote that you can read here: Motivation Monday.

Now, I know I can’t push myself too much as I have a little growing baby to care for, for another 21 weeks (or so).

But, I still need to be active, for me AND for the baby – so I set new goals (yet again).

Fitness as of 19 weeks pregnant:

1. Try to walk in the morning for 20-30 minutes

(before Lilly get’s up and on those days when my husband is home)

2. When I run errands – walk for an extra 10 – 15 minutes around the store, town or sidewalk before getting back into my car.

3. If able to run again – do so at night when it’s cooled off – limited it to 20 minutes.

Then I can hopefully sleep off any pain that may happen.

4. Go back to setting weekly goals – written down on paper,

this would include what day’s I will work out and days I simply cannot.

5. Prenatal Yoga – Buy a DVD as there are no classes until the Fall 😦

  1. I think my Roast Beef dinner did trump your Fish, in looks anyway. If this is the day your father was there, and you served fish, he said it was really good and why don’t we bar-be-que fish.

    • Mom, your right – your meal did trump mine – by miles! Poor Dad got a little serving as well, but I made up with an awesome strawberry short cake (vegan) that he liked too!!!

    • Thanks Hanna. One day at at time. You must be so frustrated with your broken leg – hopefully it heals up soon for you.
      I recently came across your blog and love it – thanks for sharing your stories, congratulations on your pregnancy and your journey over the last number of years.
