Okay…I know I’ve said a million times that I don’t really believe that cravings for sweets are caused by pregnancy…but I do in this case..only because it’s so random! Yesterday, I was weirdly craving cheesecake. I like cheesecake…but it’s not the dessert I’d usually pick. I’ll definitely eat it if it’s there (like most things)…but [...]
Hi guys!! It’s been a while huh? I’ve been a slacker blogger lately, I know. I had some server issues last week plus just one of those weeks where I was totally not motivated to do anything. I hate those weeks…I feel like such a blob. But it’s okay I’m getting back into the swing [...]
First of all, sorry for being MIA these past few days. We had some car issues I had to take care of Monday (is that not the worst thing ever??) then actually I was having some problems with my server. Anyway, I’m back (hopefully).
Over the weekend, I decided that I wanted to start planning [...]
6 months baby!! That’s so crazy. I have to admit, I thought I’d be bigger at 6 months just because it sounds like you’re so far along. As far as weight gain goes though, I’m on track so that’s all that matters!
Although I don’t look huge, I feel pretty huge. This week my tummy [...]
I don’t know about you, but I tend to get inspiration (and motivation) from other blogs, especially recipe inspiration. As much as I like to pretend I’m a professional in the kitchen, I’m really not. I’ve tried to “wing” recipes and they usually turn up as fails. I guess that’s how you figure it out [...]
I’ve been obsessed with my food processor lately. Mostly because of my new nightly ritual of healthy soft serve. My husband loves his ice cream at night and I love me some ice cream too, but nightly bowls of ice cream add up so these healthier soft serve alternatives really do hit the spot!
I feel like I’ve been in a recipe slump lately. Probably because my desire to cook anything has sort of fallen by the waist-side. That is, until yesterday. For some reason I suddenly became super motivated to start cooking again. My favorite things to cook are baked goods and breakfast items so usually things [...]
In my opinion, high intensity interval training (HIIT) is the way to go if you want to get stronger and burn some major calories. Combining strength moves with cardio bursts in between is my favorite approach. Keeping your heart rate up throughout the workout allows you to burn calories in a way that say, running [...]
I’m almost 6 months pregnant…how crazy is that? I have to say, I totally thought I’d be bigger at 6 months but no complaints :). I know I’ll suddenly feel huge one of these days so might as well stay comfortable if I can!
Overall, I feel pretty good. I was having some back pain [...]
I admit, the suggestion of adding eggs to your oatmeal sounds a little scary and basically disgusting at first. But I swear, it works! When I say eggs of course, I mean egg whites. I haven’t taken the plunge yet and added the yolk. I feel like then I’d have to eat savory oats and [...]
