Happy March!

Made it to 26 weeks and I feel like I’m 36 weeks and immobile and huge.

So happy to see March, with spring just a few weeks away. I can’t wait! It has been a cold winter and I’m ready for some sun (hello Seattle this winter??) and warmth!

I’m starting to feel the largeness of pregnancy and feel a little restricted 🙁  I have 3 months and a week to go, almost to 6 months. Running has been hit or miss but mornings have not been going well and I usually do better running midday or in the afternoon. Lifting is still going strong with motivation from Blonde Ponytail workouts on instagram.

I haven’t been remembering my workouts lately to write them down, but going backwards it looked something like this:
Today- a record 5.25 miles on the treadmill around 10am.  Have not been able to run straight or that long for a while and it is rare right now.
Saturday – 1 mile, then TRX circuit and 2 miles
Friday – strength workout from BP
Thursday – off
Wednesday – run 3 miles
Tuesday – heavy weight circuit and 1/4 miles in between
Monday – run 2.5 miles and some strength

Here’s the meal plan for the week:

Week of 3/1. I’m off for the weekend so meal plan through Thurs!
Goal for the week – more raw food!

Sunday: Dairy free gluten free lasagna w/ spinach and tuscan kale salad with roasted veggies and cashew sauce- the veggies looked good yesterday but today make me want to gag. I’m kind of favoring a raw food diet right now!!

Monday: Pulled honey chicken and rice (freezer from another week) with broccoli and rainbow chopped cashew salad

Tuesday: Risotto (frozen/leftovers) and peas, roasted veggies with dill/avocado dressing (yum!)

Wednesday: Tuscan soup with homemade bread, cucumber/apple/avocado salad

Thursday: quinoa burgers (costco), sweet potato fries and dairy free mac & cheese
OR… maybe fish tacos or a raw salad??

Friday/Saturday- off duty while I go meet my new niece! <3

I’m enjoying Ezekial bread with avocado, salt and pepper for lunch often, smoothies for breakfast with vega, and snacking on Vega + almond butter or last week almond butter brownies. I had to freeze those because I felt like I was eating the whole batch in one sitting!

Lunch one day was this raw food wrap – I see more in my future:

  1. You look great! This was around the point in my pregnancy that I started to generally feel “not great,” so I can sympathize, but you’re still going so strong!!
