Good Morning, friends! How’s the week shaping up for you?
I’ve actually been feeling a little uninspired in the writing department lately, which is why you haven’t seen a whole lot of me this week. All is going well though, I’m happy to report! Here’s just a few snippets…
Last night Jay surprised me with a delicious dinner from Chipotle. He wasn’t going to be home for dinner originally, so when his plans changed, I told him that I had nothing on the agenda for dinner (and was most likely going to eat eggs or cereal). He took action on that one and came home with my favorite chicken fajita burrito bowl with a big ol’ side of guac.
Chipotle burrito bowl = a happy Courtney.
I ate about half for dinner and saved the other half for today’s lunch. Win-win, if you ask me!
Workouts this week have been slim. A couple busy and unmotivated days equaled no desire for workouts after work. I was trying really hard to get motivated yesterday, and almost threw in the towel, but I decided to tell myself to commit to at least 15 minutes; if I wanted to stop after that, I would.
Well, turns out all I needed was a little jump start, since I wound up going for about 50 minutes with a few videos off of FitnessGlo.
I was honestly having FUN and enjoying myself, and wound up nice and sweaty by the time I was finished (due mostly to the fact that it was crazy hot in our house last night). I felt SO much better, both mentally and physically. Again, another win-win! So happy to be able to continue exercising at 33 weeks pregnant. Let’s hope that energy sticks around for juuuuust a little longer!
Part of the reason I haven’t had all that much to chat about this week is also because my meals have basically been the same thing for the past three days…
Yogurt bowls with fresh berries and cereal for breakfast.
And leftover couscous salad with a crumbled veggie burger mixed in (OMG so good…so sad I finished up the rest of it yesterday).
I totally need to make another batch of this over the weekend.
A few more random things for today…
- I was skimming through a bunch of blogs and social media yesterday and suddenly found myself in the comparison trap. You know…the ugly, nasty route your mind takes when you start comparing yourself to everyone else. AKA, it’s ridiculous, and I get so annoyed when I find it happening to me. As something that once consumed my life on a daily basis, it’s not something that I like to welcome back in, when it does decide to creep up on me. Once I realized what I was doing, I cut out social media for the day and took some time to remind myself of all the positive in my life. Unfortunately, I realize that sometimes, social media can become a bit of a trigger for me. While I’d say 90% of the time it’s for the positive, there’s still a small part of it that works against me if I’m not in the right frame of mind. Thankfully, I’ve learned to be able to identify this, so once I remove it, I feel much better. I think this just goes to show that, although someone may be in a happier place overall, it’s still possible to have those sort of days. We’re only human…we all have our hiccups. The key is to identify them and move on.
And on a little lighter note…
- Tomorrow is June, which means when someone asks me when I’m due, I can officially say “next month!” And that is crazy.
- I have officially found a website that can get me to laugh so hard that I’m in tears…every. single. time. I. visit. If you haven’t already, please check out this website. Even if you aren’t pregnant, I think you’ll still find it amusing. If not, you can’t be human.
- I accidentally forgot to order a decaf iced coffee this morning (for Coffee Friday!) and I think Baby Tooth knows it. Whewwweeee is he on the move this morning…too bad the little caffeine isn’t helping his mama out at all (never has, never will).
Have a great Friday and a great weekend, everyone.
