What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW)

What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW)

Happy Wednesday! Well, it has taken me 3 1/2 years, but I am partaking in my very first What I Ate Wednesday today. Being that it is only mid-day, this is obviously what I ate yesterday, but you get the picture.   1.  For breakfast, I had a protein pancake topped with organic pure maple syrup, strawberries, and blueberries.  I also had some decaf coffee with almond milk and cinnamon and a huge glass of water with lemon. 2.  Lunch was a wrap on a whole grain tortilla and filled with grilled chicken, avocado, tomato, onion, and...

Healthy eats from the past few weeks

Healthy eats from the past few weeks

A few weeks ago, I wrote that I planned to bring back my “Healthy eats” posts (and more healthy eating posts in general).  Oddly enough, I am starting today- on a day when I have a massive headache coupled with extreme nausea.  I’ve actually felt like this for several days now (hence the major lack of posts this week).  I have no idea if it’s a bug or the pregnancy, but the feeling has basically rendered me useless. But enough about all of that.   Here are some of my recent meals and snacks.  Hopefully,...

Things I didn’t share Friday (1/31)

Things I didn’t share Friday (1/31)

  1. Maybe it is pregnancy brain, but my memory has been horrible lately.  I walk into rooms and forget why I am in there, think I’ve responded to emails when I haven’t, and get in the car and can’t recall where I am going.  I’m basically the human version of Dory from Finding Nemo.   2. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a pic of some new Ugg boots that I ordered online.  I chose them because they could be worn high or low and because I liked the gray color.  Unfortunately, they were more...

Healthy eats from the week & link love

Healthy eats from the week & link love

  If you’ve been reading TGS for awhile, you might remember my “healthy eats from the week” posts.  Since I haven’t done one of those in several months, I figured that I’d do one today- in gallery style.     As you can see, I enjoyed grilled chicken salads, quinoa, sliced veggies with hummus, fish, smoothies, and omelets this week. I’ve been on a big brown rice kick lately too. And for some reason, I have “rice, rice, baby” (to the tune of the Vanilla Ice classic, of course) stuck in...

Baby steps & healthy eats from the week

Baby steps & healthy eats from the week

Happy Friday! We have a lot planned for the weekend, so Monday’s weekend recap just might be a two-parter. My in-laws are coming over for dinner tonight, so I have some groceries to pick up and a house to clean before they arrive.  Michael is sleeping right now, so I’ll have to get moving quickly before he wakes.   (I love that little face.)   Speaking of Michael and sleep… For background, he’s been sleeping in our bedroom in his Moses basket ever since we brought him home from the hospital.   I’ve...

Shopping with grandma & healthy eats from the week

Shopping with grandma & healthy eats from the week

Happy Friday! Michael and I just got home from a little shopping trip with his grandmother (my mom).   Our stops included Old Navy, Buy Buy Baby, and Babies ‘R Us. In typical grandmother fashion, my mother completely spoiled her grandson during our little excursion today. Check out this loot…     And that’s not even all of it! Michael is my parent’s first grandchild, and it’s such a joy to see how excited they are about him. My mother has always been a very happy and cheerful person, but I am not sure...
