These are just sexy Valentino's!

Pregnant chicks wear high heels too!

Tuesday…

No workout today, not feeling it…I really wanted a yummy breakfast!

Breakfast: 2 eggs, 2 whites, sourdough toast with jam, and oj

Did our usual Tuesday routine, took Cole to the rec center to play, had lunch at Kneaders, went to swimming, went to taekwondo, blah blah blah

Lunch: 1/2 tuna on whole wheat…Keller ate the other half…and a few parm chips

Snack: I was craving a mint oreo chocolate chip shake from our favorite shake place in Kamas…unfortunately but fortunately they put way too many chocolate chips in it so I only ended up eating about 1/4 of it

Dinner: mom made the chicken enchilada veggie soup I posted back in january, click HERE for recipe…topped with greek yogurt, avocado, and cilantro

Wednesday…

Had my usual pre-workout snack 1tsp of PB and half a banana and went to spin.  After had my usual breakfast.

Went to the hospital to volunteer for the last time.  I’m bummed cause I have really enjoyed volunteering there, but with a newborn and us moving back to Austin I have to say goodbye!  Snacked on a balance bar during my shift and then had my green smoothie (I’m really going to miss these) and half a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich…and fries…again.  Needless to say, I wasn’t starving for dinner a few hours later so I just had a small plate.

Dinner: flank steak and green beans

I spent a little too much time on my feet at the hospital and started feeling it after dinner.  I curled up in the fetal position on the couch until Keller finally made me go to bed.

Thursday…

Buns and guns class today, I was all ready and raring to go when I started to have a pain on the left lower side of my belly.  Keller forbid me from going so I just got ready for the day.  The pain kind of came and went and came and went, but wasn’t too terrible.  We had a day full of errands to do in Salt Lake.  Since I’d already had my pre-workout snack, I just grabbed a Fage yogurt for breakfast on our way out.

Our first errand was to pick up my ring that was being re-dipped at the jeweler.  By the time we were done, my pain was so intense that I could barely walk back to the car.  I decided to call my dr.  She didn’t seem too concerned, but told me if I was worried to head over to the labor and delivery at the hospital to get checked out (her office is in Park City, the hospital I will deliver at is in Salt Lake, we were in Salt Lake).  I had an appointment for some beautification and decided I would wait and see how I felt after.  By the end of the appointment the pain was completely gone. I’m thinking he was sitting on a nerve or something and finally moved.

Lunch: Cheesecake Factory Skinnylicious mexican chicken lettuce wraps

Needed a treat…and I was super excited cause Cold Stone now has frozen yogurt!!  I got a Like It size chocolate yogurt with brownie.

I met up with mom when we dropped Cole off for taekwondo and we headed over to the brand new Nordstrom (my favorite store, if you didn’t know) downtown that isn’t even open yet but was having a shoe party.  And like I would ever say no to a party that involved shoes!!  Hello?!?!  Here’s a few pairs I tried on…got lots of stares walking around in the heels.  Apparently people have never seen a pregnant woman wear high heels??

Fun summer Tory Burch wedges!

Hot Pink (very in this season) Vera Wang peep toes

And my fav…super sexy, just plain freaking awesome Valentino’s!

Dinner: I wasn’t starving so I shared a beet and goat cheese salad with mom and had some of her steak with some of my potato gnocchi and green beans…after about 4 bites I was done!

Friday…

Spin again, had my pre-workout and post-workout/breakfast norm.

Keller wanted to see the movie 21 Jump Street and since Channing Tatum was in it, of course I was going!

Found this on Pinterest!

We grabbed sandwiches and I had an apple in the theater.  By the time the movie was over it was time to pick up Cole from school.  We came home and Daddy and Cole rode bikes in the driveway…we are trying really hard to teach Daddy how to ride a 2-wheeler, but we can’t get him off his strawberry shortcake tricycle!

We met up with Aunt Sasa and her friend Kim at El Chubasco for dinner.  I had 2 shrimp tacos and some chips with pico.

On the way home Sasa stopped at the store and bought some Starburst jelly beans…I swear they will be the death of me…oh well, I still have a few days left of justifying eating whatever I want 😉

 

Bangs

Weekend Recap

Black FRIDAY:

So we used to go out on Black Friday’s and shop and then I think we all got smart and thought why the heck would we want to put ourselves through all that just to save a few bucks (unless of course there was something really cool for really cheap), but my sister who was going to be in Idaho asked my mom and I to go to Costco for her to check out the sales on TV’s.  So we did.  And if I was going to go anywhere on Black Friday, I would want to go to Costco.  We got there 5 min before they opened (at 9am) and this was the line:

but when they opened the doors we were inside in less than a minute.  Turns out they didn’t have the TV my sister wanted, but it wasn’t all for nothing.  I found a Garmin watch I have been wanting for $75 off.  Merry Chirstmas to me!

(update: I tried to set-up the watch tonight and the bezels don’t work…of course they don’t!)

After the madness we stopped and grabbed breakfast at Einstein’s.  I freaking love bagels, just a PS in case you were wondering!

Breakfast: asiago cheese bagel w/RF CC and oj 13

Met up with Sherilynn and Cole at an indoor playground in Park City and then she wanted to go to Best Buy. She wanted to buy my mom a Wii, but the salesman talked her into an Xbox Kinect.  Then I was going to buy it and just take it with me when we left.  Then we found out for everything we wanted it was going to be like $500…uh yeah no.  Unfortunately for me, Cole was thirsty when we got there so I grabbed a water from the fridge with the sodas, he had one sip, so when we were finally ready to leave I remembered I had to pay for it.  It took me 20 min to buy 1 stupid bottle of water!  While I was waiting in line I snacked on a Twizzler’s pull-n-peel and red vines that I had in my purse from the movie, I learned it’s not a good idea for me to carry those around in my purse!  Came home and had leftovers for lunch.

I made Cole take a nap, because I really wanted to!  The rest of the day was lounging and snacking.  I stopped taking pictures (I think my phone actually died, or at least that’s what I’m telling myself).

SATURDAY:

Woke up ready for a workout.  I didn’t get one in on Friday (besides my timed burpees, which took all of 2min).  But of course as soon as I was about to get on the treadmill, Keller called.  I knew it would be awhile until I was able to get on so I grabbed some breakfast.

Breakfast: Honey Whole Wheat bagel w/RF CC and OJ  12

Then finally got on the treadmill and did my burpee, running intervals. 5 min run/5 burpees (doesn’t seem like a lot, but what I was trying to do was work on my form…I can’t go all the way down to the ground obviously so instead I’m doing push-ups…pathetic push-ups, but push-ups none the less!).  No pic, but drank the rest of my Muscle Milk from Wednesday post workout.

Mom, Cole, Sherilynn, and I headed down to Fashion Place to get some shopping/returning done.  We grabbed lunch at Cheesecake Factory.  I was dying to try the Skinnylicious mexican lettuce wraps that Carman and Lexy had already tried.  They were soooo good.  And with help from an app my sister told me about myfitnesspal, we figured out the wraps were 1 point per wrap!!!

So I didn’t feel guilty having bites of Cole’s pasta w/parmesan, a couple french fries, and bread.  After lunch we did some shopping and then headed back home.  While we were shopping Lexy sent me a picture of a t-shirt she saw…I laughed out loud!

We had to stop at Wal-Mart cause Cole needed a movie! He picked out Cars 2.  We came home and everyone watched it.  I slaved over dinner (I threw a turkey and spinach lasagna that I bought at Costco in the oven).  It was a hit, everyone loved it!  8 points/serving (lots of protein!).

 

SUNDAY:

I’m volunteering at the hospital here in Park City and today was my orientation.  It was basically just a tour of the hospital and signing up for our first days of training.  Not too exciting.

Breakfast: 1 egg, 2 whites, half bagel, and OJ  11

Came home and got organized a little.  Was starving by the time mom and Cole got home from church.  I couldn’t even make myself lunch I had to eat RIGHT NOW, so I popped a roll in the microwave and added butter and jam.  Oh so good.  Followed it up with a Chobani.

Cole wanted to have quiet time in his room cause he wanted to watch Cars 2 by himself.  It was funny!  We didn’t do much else the rest of the day just a movie, played some games, and snacked.

Mom made a delicious refrigerator soup…that’s what I call soup when you put everything in your fridge that you want to get rid of in a soup.  Basically it was a little but of chicken, turkey, potatoes, green beans, carrots, and who knows what else!  But it was delish!

We bought the Yoplait Smoothies at Costco for my dad, he wanted to have things that were healthy but easy for him to make and eat.  I had remembered them from one of the seasons of the Biggest Loser.  Oh my goodness they are so freaking good!!  3 points per serving (the Costco size has 2 servings per bag, the grocery stores probably just have 1).  Like oh my gosh where have these been all my life good!

MONDAY:

Love Mondays cause I get to go to SPIN!!  Today was a hard class.  She really pushed us or I really pushed myself, probably a bit of both.  Wanted to burn off some of the weekend crap.

Pre-workout: 3

Made myself do my burpees before I could have my protein pancake!

Post-workout: 5

Came home and helped clean my half of the house ;).  Got done and read an email from my hubby.  I’ve been missing him a lot.  We’ve been away from each other a lot, but never over the holidays and it seems harder.  I was complaining to him about how my body was hurting from all the frickin burpees.  He gave me some good advice and some unwanted advice.  I must have been especially emotional today, because a few little innocent sentences sent me into a self-loathing depression that made me want to go eat cookies!  Men just need to understand at all times what exact mood their wives are in so they know exactly how to respond and what to say!  Is that so much to ask?

Then Carman texts this picture of one of our heroes Jennifer Nicole Lee and that just did me in.  So after an hour texting session with the FLF girls and crying at the sandwich place, I felt better.

Lunch: veggie sandwich on Great Harvest bread (and sample cinnaburst bread)  10

Went to get my haircut and decided I needed some bangs back in my life.  I’ll most likely regret this decision!

Snacked on an apple on the way to pick up Cole.  Came home and my dad wanted to got to this BBQ place that he has been hearing about from his physical therapist.  It’s in Heber which is about a 20-25 minute drive from Park City.  When we got there, it was closed.  Even though their website said they’re open Monday-Sunday…they weren’t.  So we ended up driving back to Park City and eating at Squatter’s, a pub style restaurant.

Dinner: 3/4 turkey burger, about 10 sweet potato fries  12

And that’s all folks!  I’m excited for the next 4 weeks, my family decided to have a little weight-loss competition.  I’m a little bummed I can’t really participate, but instead of losing weight my goal is to maintain my current weight for 4 weeks.  I’m hoping it won’t be as hard as it might sound and don’t go all “pregnant women shouldn’t be trying to not gain weight”on me…trust me I’ve already gained more than necessary.  I can stand to take a month off of gaining!  Wish me luck!
