Adventures in Pregnancy – They Can’t All Be Good Days…

Today has just been one of those days where pregnancy kicks my ass.

I’m blessed this isn’t the norm, and grateful I have a husband who can prepare the slightly indulgent dinner my heart desires (WITHOUT judging me 😉)… tomorrow is a new day!

Did you have an easy pregnancy?

Kara Keepin’ it Real – SO GLAD THE HOLIDAYS ARE OVER!

You know why I’m RELIEVED today is Monday, the day after Easter?!

I’ll tell you!

I’m relieved because finally, today means a rough 6 month stretch of holidays full of sweets and treats (and coworkers who bring those treats into the office…) is OVER.

It starts with Halloween and segues quickly into Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. We get a verrrry brief reprieve before we are bombarded with Valentine’s Day stuff, and then Easter is close on the tail of Cupid’s day.

And I swear, each year these holidays get more and more centered around junk; that or I’m just getting more sensitive to/aware of how many treats we consume during these times.

And I never seek the stuff out, but when it’s made available/in front of me, I definitely have my weaknesses, and I definitely give in sometimes.

Which there is nothing wrong with the occasional treat… but I’m not gonna sit here and act like I’m not relieved this holiday stretch is over, BECAUSE I AM 😉

It is a rough stretch for most people, and I am no different!

 

Sunday Shakeolgy

It DOESN’T keep me from never having the real deal (be it chocolate or cheesecake!)

It DOES help me keep most indulgences sensible, not whole-aisle or whole-cake style 😉

Look, small victories like that freakin’ matter – far be it from me to say it would work for everyone, but it definitely helps me keep this sweet tooth {{mostly}} in check!

Could you use some help with that?

Wellness Wednesday

Shakeology contains protein, but it’s not just a protein shake! It’s a whole food (meaning it comes from a real food and is not man-made) nutrition shake, but it has tons of other goodies other than protein.

It’s made with the healthy stuff you should be eating every day, but typically don’t. Shakeology’s the perfect combination of proteins, phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, prebiotics, and probiotics!
