Yesterday was weird…I was exhausted. Took Cole to school and then went to the store to grab a few things. Came home and organized some stuff while catching up on Grey’s Anatomy. Was about to take a nap, but decided I needed to get out so I went out to walk the hill. It was a gorgeous day, high 60s and sunny. I was so glad I made myself get out and walk. The one thing I did notice is that it’s getting harder for me to breathe. When you’re pregnant your lungs are processing more air allowing your blood to carry more oxygen to the placenta for the baby. Add that on top of having exercise and altitude induced asthma and it’s a miracle I can make it up that hill at all! +8pts
I tried to focus on the little things today. Like for breakfast, I usually just spread my peanut butter eyeing it to be about 1 TBSP…today I pulled out the measuring spoons.
Van’s GF waffle w/1TBSP Skippy all-natural w/honey peanut butter 5pts
I also pulled out the scale to measure ounces for my turkey and cheese on my sandwich for lunch…made some ranch dip w/light sour cream and a ranch packet. Great Harvest wheat bread, turkey, muenster cheese broiled and topped w/avocado sandwich, carrots, celery, ranch, grapes. 12pts
Snack after walk: Chobani 3pts
And for dinner we had leftover chicken piccata with 1/2C orzo pasta and green beans 7pts
After dinner snack: orange and Trader Joe’s light kettle corn 3pts
And then because I hadn’t taken a nap and walked the hill, I was ready for bed at 7:30pm, didn’t fall asleep until 8 but still 8pm what am I …4?
Probably the best part of my day was my sister asking for an idea for a Halloween costume…I told her to be a text message and this is what she came up with!
