Some Things That Tickled My Pickle This Week
I meant to get this up much earlier.. I just kept getting distracted!!!
Eating a lot less meat.
The past two days I've only had meat at one meal (unless you count eggs?) And this entire week I've just had a lot less than usual. It's been nice. Making soup or spaghetti squash makes this really easy because I will eat it two or three times. I don't know if being a vegetarian is ever in the cards for me, but it does feel nice to cut back. :)
tomato tortellini soup with zucchini
Sketti Squash duhhh
Steven walked by while I was eating this and said "uhh.. nice bowl" pffffff amateur.
Finally making homemade enchilada sauce.
That one meal involving meat recently: turkey enchiladas with homemade sauce. I don't know why it's taken me so long, with everyone saying how good it was. They were right! It's so easy it's stupid and I never want to go back to the cans. I used this recipe. Go make some!!
Sleeping with a humidifier
We've been needing to get a new one since I threw out the Vick's humidifier we used to use (it got super nasty on the inside) and I finally grabbed one at Walgreens a few days ago. Oh. My. Goodness. I'd forgotten how wonderful they are. Every night I enter what can only be described as the "humidifier coma" and have a night full of sleep so deep I only wake up one time to pee.
Mustard. (with ketchup)
A bit random. I've never liked mustard, BUT my husband loves it. He used to eat two sandwiches for lunch almost every day just so he could eat a ton of mustard. Guess what I ate the very morning I found out I was pregnant. Mustard. Two packets of it. (on a sausage roll.. hehe) My Dr. appointments are by a grill where I get french fries and dip them in mustard, which not even my mustard obsessed husband thinks is good. But this week I got an extreme mustard craving and we literally had to stop and sonic where I ordered a corn dog and put mustard and ketchup on it. Soooo good. What the heck?? I guess the baby likes mustard??
Throwing random foods in a bowl and eating it.
I call this one.. goop? The glob?? Whatever I threw spaghetti squash in a pan with pesto, marinara, avocado, and parmesan. Sooo delicious. I couldn't finish it, but I heated the rest up later.
so steamy ;p
Not gonna lie, I've been majorly slacking in the workout department since getting pregnant. I hadn't really been running for a couple of weeks when I found out (my only option was outside and it was dangerously hot and humid. My best friend/summer running partner nearly passed out and had to have her boyfriend come pick her up.) After a few weeks off and a first trimester with such horrible nausea I couldn't function, I felt like it was too far gone. I tried running a little bit on the treadmill and it was just miserable. I've been trying to walk and do yoga here and there but honestly.. I've been really bad about keeping up with it. This week though, I'm finally starting to get better. I've just been looking up Tone It Up videos on youtube and following along with those. It's been pretty awesome! It feels good to do some work and be a little sore. Now I just need to stay on the ball! After I have the baby I can't wait to get back into running. 2014 is going to be my year!
It's so cold outside and our house is old and drafty. So it's growing on me!
Okay, so it doesn't look anything like this here, but it did snow! I love it since we haven't needed to leave the house but I don't want to miss my nieces birthday party tomorrow (and we are running out of food!) So I'm hoping it clears up a bit soon. But how beautiful is this gif??
