Hey hey! It’s that time of the week again…
This breakfast was actually not what I had planned at all for yesterday morning.
Before I left for work yesterday morning, I started packing up the makings of what would be a yogurt bowl. I put together my strawberries and blueberries, and even had some cereal in a baggie…but I forgot the yogurt. Sheesh.
Thankfully, there were bagels in the office yesterday morning, so I grabbed a multigrain one (I think?) and topped it with some honey walnut cream cheese (<–my favorite from Bruegger’s!) to have along with my berries. I actually wound up putting some of the strawberries ON the bagel, which was quite delicious, FYI. 😉
A couple of hours after breakfast, I had to head out of the office for a bit for my 30-week prenatal appointment. The appointment went GREAT, and included a few cool pieces of info…
- Baby and me are measuring “perfectly” and weight gain is right on target
- Although I already knew I passed my glucose test, I found out my number was 86…they like it to be below 130. Holla!
- I’m not anemic (WOOT!)
- Baby Tooth is head down! Right now, he’s in a bit of a “C” shape, with his head down near my right side (which explains why I feel his little hiccups so low), his little butt up and to the left of my belly button, and his feet? Well, yes…they are right where I thought…up near my right rib cage. He’s been reminding me of that daily. 😉
- I have one more ultrasound headed my way at 36 weeks(!!)
- I ended up scheduling the rest of my prenatal appointments. THAT was surreal…
It was a great appointment indeed, so Jay and I decided to celebrate by grabbing a quick lunch at Chipotle. (Actually, I’m kidding. I planned this Chipotle stop about a week ago…it would have happened regardless).
I ordered my usual chicken burrito bowl and Jay and I shared some chips and guac.
I don’t know if it was because I was eating earlier than normal or not, but I wasn’t even that hungry by the time we got there. And then, I still filled up super quick as I was eating it, so I decided to eat half and save the rest for (what I thought would be) later in the afternoon.
Well, I didn’t end up getting hungry at all for the remainder of the day(?!), so I decided to just have the rest of it as my dinner when I got home.
I had made Jay a sandwich for dinner (softball game for him last night) as I was getting my dinner together, and the tomatoes I was slicing for it looked SO good that I decided to just cut up the rest and have it along with my burrito bowl and chips.
Fresh tomatoes topped with just a little salt? Mmmmm….looooove ’em.
A little while after dinner, once Jay had left for his game, I decided to get my butt in motion and did my full Pilates DVD (50 minutes). It felt really good to get moving again, and I was thrilled to actually have found the energy and desire to even do it. I’m already noticing certain things getting more difficult though…yikes!
After Dinner Snack
While I remained pretty full and satisfied throughout most of the day, yesterday evening was a totally different story. About an hour after I finished my Pilates workout, I was starrrrving. I headed to the kitchen and started with a handful of the first thing that came into sight…
You guys thought I loved TJ’s cat cookies? Well…these Cinnamon Schoolbook Cookies are incredibly addicting and amazing. I wind up grabbing small handfuls of them ALL the time (probably doesn’t help that I leave them right out on the counter).
At the rate my hunger was going, a handful of those wasn’t going to to do the trick, so I decided to make myself a bowl of cereal.
Quaker Oatmeal Squares, Honey Nut Cheerios, and blueberries with almond milk…and then I went back for a second bowl after that one. Holy cow, I just could not get enough!
Once I was finished with my cereal marathon, Cody and I settled in on the couch and watched a little TV while we waited for Jay to get home from softball.
Shortly after that, it was bed tiiiiime for me.
So I’d say it was a bit different day of eats than normal, but it was delicious nonetheless.
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
