Pregnancy Nook: Highlights of Week 21

January 9-15, 2013

This whole week was a blur; thank goodness for my journal and photos or I’d have no idea what day it is or what went on. Gosh knows what it’ll be like with another baby. I have no belly pics from this week but make up for it with food pics. I will apologize for the formatting of this blog, I am writing this on the fly tonight.

This is me this morning at 22 weeks, sans makeup, I can still pull off a “not pregnant” look for the first 1/2 day.

Favorite Moment of Week 21: snow! Lots of snow fell on Friday which resulted in 1/2 day off work.


The little one handled the snow and cold so well. We all enjoyed the fresh powder for about an hour. Unfortunately hubby and I have come down with a cold!

I’m feeling…
Incredible! I’m so lucky. I’m sleeping extremely well and other than heartburn (and the new cold), I am experiencing no pregnancy symptoms that can drag one down.

Nutrition Nook:
Between my new juicer, the comeback of the smoothie and utterly refusing to buy in junk food, my nutrition is spot on. Thank goodness those holidays are over! Here’s a few pics of my weekend meals

Week 21 Workouts: still working out pretty much every day in some way. I feel more complete lately if I squeeze in a little here and there. I’m happy to report that all the extra kegals I’ve been tallying up have paid off. I can go much longer while running before a bathroom break!

Wed: 5 min insanity warm-up, 45-50 min lunch walk
Thu: ? I think I rested
Fri: AM= 10 min Insanity workout; PM= 45 min Insanity Max Cardio Conditioning workout
Sat: 10 min Insanity warm-up, Tank Top Arms,
CrossFit – Get Those Glutes Workout. Both the above and below workouts are awesome! I’m so glad I’ve added them to my workout pins!

Sun: 5 mile treadmill run (happy to type that one out)
Mon: 10 min Insanity warm-up, Daily Hiit (formerly BodyRockTV) Day #2, Fat Blaster workout = total 35 min
Tue: 3.3 mile treadmill run

Have a happy and healthy week! Take care of yourself!
