Recent Eats

Hi guys! Thank you so much for all the tips and advice regarding yesterday’s post about the hip/lower back/glute pain I’ve been having lately related to pregnancy. I appreciate the advice, and I just made an appointment for an assessment next week with a local PT that specializes in women’s health. Hoping she can help – fingers crossed!

In the meantime, I’m working from my standing desk as much as possible (until my feet hurt, anyway…) and also treating myself to a yoga class over lunch today. Sitting for long periods of time certainly doesn’t help the situation!

Anyway! Recent eats. I’m still obsessed with eggs. I love eggs normally, but we appear to be having a serious moment recently. Yesterday for lunch I was working from home and decided to do brunch – we had some leftover bacon and green pepper/potato hash that Matt made over the weekend, so I paired that with two fried eggs and some microwave wilted spinach that you can see peeking out under there too. Yum!

Pregnancy-related Sciatica advice?

Hi guys! Looking for some advice from you today. It appears that now at 26 weeks pregnant (full pregnancy update coming later this week), I’ve officially started to make my way out of the “magical” 2nd trimester phase where you mostly feel like yourself just a bit slower/more tired. A couple weeks ago I started having some pain (both a constant Continue Reading …

Weekend

On Friday night, it was rainy and dreary and we thought pho sounded like a good idea, so we hit up Pho 75 in Arlington. The best! Regular chicken pho for me, large beef pho for Matt. Saturday morning was all about relaxing – and pancakes! We used this mix which is still our current fave, and added some chia seeds and blueberries in addition Continue Reading …

Fitness Week in Review (Pregnancy Edition)

Hey guys! I haven’t done a comprehensive fitness week in review for awhile, so I thought today would be a good time to do one! I’m 25 weeks pregnant now, and proud of myself for still keeping the fitness going! I keep the intensity lower of course, but getting out there is great for me both physically and mentally, so I’m glad I’ve been able to Continue Reading …

Recent Eats

Hi guys! Popping in with some of this week’s eats. We’ve cooked at home a couple nights but I haven’t gotten pictures – oops! Last night, though, it was such a nice night that Matt and I decided to treat ourselves to an al fresco date night at Sushi Rock – our local fave. Yep, still loving sushi lately! Cooked of course. :) We got 3 cooked Continue Reading …

Back on the Run!

You guys – I’m back on the run!! And by back on the run, I mean I’m back to incorporating some jogging into my walking routine, but this is really exciting because I seriously miss those endorphins! I wrote a few weeks ago about how pregnancy and running for me have not really been a great combination, and while I’m certainly not going to be Continue Reading …

Day in the Life

Thank you to The Quaker Oats Company for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own. Hey guys! It’s time for another Day in the Life post – it’s been quite awhile since I’ve done one of these, and I know you guys enjoy seeing how one of my typical workdays looks. Since my previous Day in the Life posts have mostly been on days I was working Continue Reading …

Weekend

Hey guys! I hope you had nice weekends! Matt was out of town on his annual canoe/camping trip with his buddies, so it was just me and the dogs. One of my best friends from college, Turner (real name is Laura… that’s her nickname), was in town for work last week, though, so she stuck around until Saturday afternoon which was fun! On Friday night Continue Reading …

Recent Eats: Quinoa + Lentil Grain Salad Bowl

Hey friends! Wow – thank you for all the awesome stroller recommendations on my 24 week pregnancy update post yesterday! It seems the majority of you guys recommend having 2 strollers in the mix – a lightweight, portable, travel-friendly stroller to keep in the car and a jogging stroller for walking (and running if I want to, but not until the baby Continue Reading …
