#tbellyt and Challenge Prizes

It’s that time of the week where you are forced to hear all about my belly bump!

Weeks: 22 and growing
Enter horrible selfie at 5AM.
Size: Small Spaghetti Squash… yum!
How I’m Feeling:  Definitely starting to feel the running slowing down.  Way down.  While in Charleston, I tried to run 3 days in a row because I had no other workout options and my legs and lower back are STILL aching.  Learned from my mistake.
Sidenote:  My cousin Meg‘s husband ran the Boston Marathon in her place Monday.  If you haven’t seen this video from our local news channel please watch, but grab a tissue!  The reason I’m including this here is because I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to run another half before this baby comes.  This just inspired me.  Unfortunately, we are gone just about every weekend in May and June probably will be too hot!  Suggestions?

Workouts:  Just plucking along taping Virtual Gym videos for the Summer Sanitize Challenge and teaching spin 3 times a week.  AND, of course, LOVING the Boho Body Cycle Class with Shannon!
Eats:  Been really trying to snack a lot.  I notice I crash if I don’t.  I’m adopting the 6 (large) meals a day plan.  This girlie is grow grow growing!  And, lucky Justin… I have been taste testing all the recipes I’m using for the Summer Challenge… adding chia and flax seed to just about everything and eating LOTS of almond butter and chocolate… because you have to eat dark chocolate everyday to reap the benefits… duh
Buying things:  Since we are having another girl, I don’t really need to buy anything.  Just need to get Gentry a bed and moved out ASAP!  Time is creeping up on me!  Also need to clean up the FREE double stroller I got and find a double monitor.
Oh and I’m definitely buying Gentry more clothes these days.  I mean, they’ll get reused now right!?

If you didn’t read about my Challenge Monday go check it out.  I have an update-
One challenge participant will win an adult AND a kid ibitz.
What is an ibitz?!
From their website:

With ibitz for kids, children will have their character blast off and explore the galaxy in a spaceship powered by their steps. The more active the child is, the more they can explore and the more rewards they can earn.

Adults can set goals and add rewards for their child to keep them active and exploring. Kids can even earn coins and exclusive content through Disney’s Club Penguin.

The ibitz for adults, tracks minute by minute activity, including steps, distance, and calories burned, for themselves as well as the entire family, by day, week, month or year.



Pretty cool device to combat those childhood obesity levels if you ask me!


So, if you haven’t signed up you can HERE to enter to win and get lots of great goodies!




And finally, I will leave  you with one recipe I have LOVED recently




Healthy Ice-cream sandwiches.  I posted this picture on Instagram and got a lot of HOW DID YOU MAKE THAT responses!


Have a super weekend!  I’m showering my cousin with a Jungle-Themed Baby Shower, eating out for an engagement and birthday celebration and hopefully enjoying the outdoor weather!  Oh and probably a trip to Shyndigz while I’m at it!

    You’re still so tiny! The second time around my belly popped like crazy… I’m thinking it’s a boy since L was totally different. 🙂 Hmm, a half in May or June…I have no idea. I know of a few more this weekend around here but then they start cutting back to the shorter distances until fall.

  2. The Running Chef says:

    Ahhhh how exciting 🙂 You are looking beautiful with a bump! Cant wait to follow you as you go through the fruits……I hope you know what I mean haha, the way people say your baby grows like different fruit sizes!

    That dessert looks incredible! I need more healthy dessert ideas with my half coming up soon! Need to limit the sugar!
