Taking time for family and friends…

Once a week I meet with a good friend over FaceTime!  It is our time to work on setting goals for our businesses and discussing the ups and downs that life brings us!  She has also played and huge part in helping me to grow and push my business to what it has become and will become in the future!  Thanks to all the advances in modern technology it has been so much easier to keep in touch with friends and family and they have all been able to watch my baby girl grow even though they cannot be here with us!  They have also gotten to see my ever growing belly!  So please do not take for granted living close to family and friends.  I have always wished I could live closer to family and one day it will happen!  In the mean time I am very thankful for FaceTime, Skype, MagicJack, and all of the other pieces of technology that have made it possible for us to feel more connected to family and friends.  So please go call someone you love and tell them you were thinking about them! Or go see them if you can!  Embrace it for all of us that can’t!

Cravings Happen…

The struggle is real folks and as much as I try to keep healthy foods here I have days (since being prego, when not prego I could go a lot longer without sweets!) that I just can’t help it!  There are days where yes I chug some water and feel better or eat an apple with some PB and  I don’t think twice about it.  Then there are days like the day I made the purchase below that I just couldn’t help myself!  There was no way around it! Or there are days when my husband (Mr. I don’t eat sweets!!) wants ice cream and he brings home 2 pints of Ben & Jerry’s and yes I resist at first.  Then a couple of days later I am at a moment of weakness when nothing is helping and there is goes more ice cream consumed!!  I will say that this time around the cravings are a lot fewer and far between, I am managing them better, and well it helps there isn’t a Dairy Queen less than a mile down the road!!

Here are some of the snacks that have really helped me to manage this craving!!

Greek yogurt, sliced banana, with PB – mix the yogurt and PB, slice the banana and put the mixture over it and put in the freezer for a little bit.  ENJOY!!

Greek yogurt with PB2 – mix together and use as a fruit dip!

Plain almonds

Good old fashion glass of water! With lemon or lime of course!

Prego or not one serving at a sitting is not going to kill your weight loss or your eating but continuing to eat like that will or eating half of a container in a sitting will! Hang it there it isn’t the end of the world and it happens!  It is a fact of life it happens and depriving yourself of something that you enjoy will only make matters worse in the long run!

Vanilla Blueberry Banana

So trying to make a shake at 4:45 AM after being up since 3 AM with heartburn was rather interesting!! Needless to say I couldn’t figure out why it didn’t taste right this morning, luckily I figured out rather quickly that I had left out the 1/2 scoop of Shakeology!! I have a feeling I will be napping with baby girl later on today!!
