Hey guys! It has been a busy week over here – running from one meeting to another! You know I like being busy, though, so it’s been good. 🙂
I had an especially cool adventure yesterday morning – I was interviewed live on local WERA 96.7, Radio Arlington! I’m a member of the local chapter of a networking group called Awesome Women Entrepreneurs, and one of the founders, Karen Bate, hosts a weekly radio show where she interviews business owners from the group. I was thrilled to be featured on the show this week!
We had a lot of fun chatting about getting healthy in a sustainable way, why the diet industry is setting people up to fail, how my business got to where it is now, and more. If you’d like to listen to a recording of the interview, click here to check it out! It’s 25 minutes long. Also, please ignore the description – I told Karen my blog is ONE of the most heavily trafficked dietitian-authored blogs on the web, but she gave me a promotion and said it’s THE most heavily trafficked – definitely not the case, lol. I think she’s going to update that later today but in case it’s not updated when you view it, just an FYI that I’m not delusional. 😉
I had a bunch of errands to run after the interview and another meeting at noon, so I treated myself to a latte and a slice of quiche at Java Shack nearby to tide me over until a late second lunch at 2-ish.
One of my random pregnancy cravings has been all eggs, all the time. In all forms – but I’ve been especially loving quiches and frittatas as a super satisfying mid-morning meal. No seriously – I’m literally eating another quiche right now while I work at a different coffee shop (I had an early AnneTheRD nutrition client here this morning, so second breakfast was necessary – first breakfast was my microwave banana oatmeal with cottage cheese and some berries).
I think this weekend I’m going to make one of my egg casserole/muffin recipes (either my Crustless Quiche with Spring Veggies or Scrambled Egg Muffins or Smoked Salmon & Vegetable Egg Casserole) so I am not spending so much money on second breakfasts during the workweek!
Anyway! In terms of lunches, I’ve been into sandwiches this week, which makes sense since I just shared my mix & match healthy sandwich recipes post (check that post out if you missed it)! One of the highlights was a tuna salad creation made with mayo (plain Greek yogurt would also work if you prefer), dijon mustard, and artichoke hearts. I love artichoke hearts in tuna! Plus some greens on the sandwich and some leftover veg on the side, too!
On the workout front, I’ve gotten in some good variety this week. As of yesterday I’m 27 weeks, so officially in the third trimester – wow! I’m definitely slowing down a lot during these workouts and keeping the intensity low, but proud of myself for still showing up – that’s often the hardest part.
- Monday: lunchtime yoga class downtown
- Tuesday: evening swim (my new maternity suit hasn’t come yet, so I’m still stretching out my old speedo – argh!)
- Wednesday: morning boot camp/strength training class with the girls
- Thursday: evening prenatal pilates class. I signed up for a 6 week workshop series and last night was the first class. Fun! I hadn’t done pilates in forever and obviously this is way different from normal pilates but I think it will be a great complement to the other fitness I’m doing. I met some nice women who are due around the same time as me, too!
- Friday: rest day! Looking forward to a dog walk later since the weather is nice. 🙂
If you’re looking for a fun workout to try at home this weekend, here are two posts that caught my eye this week: Yoga Strength Total Body Workout + a round up of 30 Minute at Home Workouts (definitely bookmarking this for once the baby comes… will be useful once I’m approved for fitness again post-baby and tight on time).
And now, I will leave you guys with this randomness: have you ever purchased green bananas that literally never got ripe?! I bought these bananas 2 weeks ago and they are still as hard as rocks. What the heck! I’ve never had this happen before – so weird!
Have a great weekend, and I’ll catch you guys back here on Monday!
