So I’ve been pregnant for 8 months…sometimes it feels like it’s flown by, other times not so much.
Since Keller got home we have worked out every day, so it was nice to take a day off and just be bums.
Breakfast: bagel and green greek yogurt smoothies
Cole has been wanting to watch Stars Wars cause the previews for Episode 1 in 3D coming to theaters has been on. But my dad only had the Attack of the Clones movie so we put that on. It’s seriously like the worst movie ever. I had to go get a book to read while they were watching cause I wanted to throw something at the TV! After the movie we went to lunch at Red Rock Brewery.
Lunch: my fav tuna sandwich in a pita pocket, ate half with salad and a few of Keller’s fries
The whole point of us going out was because Cole really wanted to go get some ice cream, but I made him have lunch first! So after lunch we grabbed a Cold Stone. I had a “like it” size chocolate with brownie. Oh so yummy!
I was cordially invited to the Waldorf Astoria in Park City (right down the hill from my parents and for any The BACHELOR watchers..where they filmed the Park City episode) to have a hot chocolate party with my sister and nieces. My sister had a free night stay and in an attempt to steal my title of world’s best aunt, took the girls for a sleepover…aren’t they special!!
Cole and Uncle Keller came over later to swim. The pool is outside, heated, but still…the temperature outside was approximately 30 degrees and dropping. The kids were in the pool for maybe 5 minutes before they ran to the hot tub and spent the rest of the time there. I sat outside next to the hot tub on a lounge chair in my North Face jacket and Keller’s beanie wrapped in towels. It was actually super fun!
Keller was craving Cafe Rio chips and queso and I was still full from lunch so we got a steak salad to share. I had probably a total of 5 bites, because that’s what it’s like sharing something with my tape worm husband (that’s what his buddy nick named him cause he eats so much and no one can figure out where it all goes). But it was fine cause I really wasn’t that hungry.
SUPER BOWL SUNDAY
Breakfast: Protein Pancake w/OJ
Keller took a 3 day job in Texas so we took him to the airport in the morning. Cole was not cool with Daddy leaving again after he just got back, but we got over it. I don’t know what my deal was but I was sooooo tired that we didn’t make it back for church, instead mommy took a nice long much needed and overdue nap!
Snack after nap: apple and Trader Joe’s chunky PB
We had a fun little family Super Bowl party with Michelle’s family. We were commenting on how proud of ourselves we were that the food was pretty much all healthy. We made chicken and pepper kabobs, pita w/hummus, fruit salad, veggies and light ranch dip, caprese’s on a stick (baby tomatoes with a small piece of mozzarella, and a sliver of basil drizzled with balsamic), shrimp, WW oatmeal cookies, and then of course we had to have some chips. Michelle’s sister-in-law Missy brought a delicious buffalo chicken mac and cheese dish and these incredible cake balls. Needless to say we were all stuffed by the end of the night…but it was all soooo good!
I felt like someone beat me with a b$&#h stick today. It was bad…and my day did not help my mood. Took Cole to school and then went to spin. We had a substitute from our usual teacher and she was AWFUL. Her music was awful, she didn’t know how to use the microphone so you couldn’t hear her, she didn’t have set sequences (like a hill, or intervals, or speed work) she just let her iPod shuffle songs. It was the longest hour of my life.
Pre-workout: 1 heaping tsp PB and 1/2 banana
I thought maybe after I got home and got some food in me maybe my attitude would improve, but it really didn’t.
I went to get my haircut and that was the highlight of my day. My hairstylist redeemed himself from last time and gave me a really good cut (see prego picture).
And then I went to Costco. I spent almost an hour wandering around and left with only 7 things. And then of course I picked the LONGEST line possible. I headed up the canyon and started really wanting a veggie sandwich from Great Harvest. They stop serving sandwiches at 3, it was 2:40. So I called to have it ready for me to pick up. I also had to have a slice of their cinnaburst bread because (as I’ve justified to myself) we won’t be living here that much longer and I won’t be pregnant that much longer so I’m taking advantage when I can! My sister Sherilynn who lives about 10 min from my parents house is out of town and needed someone to bring in here garbage cans so I took my lunch to her house. Her driveway was literally a sheet of ice. So my 8 month pregnant self (in flats mind you) had to shuffle in the snow pulling her garbage can down and holding onto my car. I told my dad it’s a good thing I workout and have abs of steel 😉 or I would have fallen multiple times! So I make it in her house and dry off my snow covered feet and go to unwrap my lunch. My veggie sandwich is literally tomato and lettuce…like for reals…so I called Great Harvest to ask them if they had just run out of their veggies and she was like uh no I don’t think so. UGGG…luckily Sherilynn had 1/2 a zucchini in her fridge so I cut it up and stuck it on and it wasn’t too bad!
Picked up Cole from school and he begged the whole way home to watch X-Men. I read my book again. Wasn’t really hungry for dinner when Cole was so I made him dinner and then we went back to the movie. Even though he had just eaten, he wanted a bagel to to eat while finishing the movie. He only ate about 1/3 of it, so the rest of it was my dinner! By the time the movie was over it was time for bath and bed. I literally spent the rest of the night finishing my book. I couldn’t put it down. I realized at 10:15pm when I finally finished that I hadn’t eaten anything else besides that bagel. Oh well.
