Hi friends! I had one last pre-baby early morning boot camp date with the girls on Tuesday morning!
I’ll be keeping up the daily walks and doing some prenatal yoga and swimming, but at nearly 38 weeks (tomorrow!) I decided it’s time to call it on the early boot camps. I have to modify SO much at this point and I’m getting more and more awkward with the big belly, so I decided it was time. I’m so grateful that my body was up for keeping up these workouts for so long – especially since I haven’t been able to run! They definitely helped keep my spirits up, and I know staying active has helped with me still feeling relatively good this late in pregnancy, too.
Kathleen and Chelsea – keep the weights warm for me and I can’t wait to pick back up our weekly workout dates come January, or whenever I’m officially cleared to get back at it! 🙂
For now, though, I’ll enjoy the extra sleep until the baby comes – although I will miss these sunrise views driving into DC – we had an especially lovely one on Tuesday!
As for food, this week’s craving has been bacon! Matt made a ton of bacon over the weekend and I had enough for two leftover sandwiches. The first was a lunch BLT…
And the second was a breakfast BLT + a fried egg. So good!
I met a friend for lunch at LPQ earlier this week and was actually craving a salad/refreshing veggies, though, so I was pumped about that because it definitely hasn’t been the norm lately. This lentil avocado salad (with some quinoa on the side that I put on top) hit the spot!
I also whipped up a tasty salmon dinner the other night – we had salmon with yogurt sauce (similar to my Baked Salmon with Lemon Mustard Dill Sauce, but sadly minus the dill since we didn’t have any), leftover roasted potatoes, and garlickly sauteed spinach. Usually by evening I don’t feel that great so Matt has been the one cooking more often than not – he was very pleasantly surprised to come home to dinner ready this night!
In other news, fall is officially here – it’s really chilly out there today! It actually felt really good on our walk this morning, though – I don’t know how those of you who were 9 months pregnant in August did it… cold weather feels so much better. I even had to break out my hat and gloves!
Back to work… as I mentioned, this is my last big week of AnneTheRD nutrition client meetings, and it’s a busy one.
See you guys back here tomorrow!
p.s. I’m glad many of you liked the look of my Spiced Butternut Squash Muffins from yesterday! An oldie but goodie. 🙂 If you’re feeling the pumpkin instead, check out my Paleo Pumpkin Muffins, Delicious Regular Pumpkin Muffins, or Gluten Free Spiced Pumpkin Pancake – or try the fun Pumpkin Oatmeal Bake or Paleo Pumpkin Oatmeal that I bookmarked recently from friend’s blogs!
