I'm a chocolate-loving nutritionist, pre & postnatal coach, doula and let's face it- total birth nerd 🤓. I'm here to help you cut through mommy-marketing and pinterest perfection to confidently cultivate a pregnancy and postpartum experience you totally love.
That second trimester energy burst is here and I couldn’t be more thrilled to greet it with open arms. The ability to stay up past 8:30pm is just dreamy.
My schedule is still pretty hectic, so while I’m not traveling much, I’m still struggling to find places to ease up. It’s tough, ya know? I get stressed about being stressed and then stressed about that. SO FREAKING RIDICULOUS.
But when I manage to make time to move each day, I sleep better, I eat better and I feel better. It’s a win-win-win-win-win…
Thing I’ve discovered about myself this week: I hate salad.
Okay, somewhat of a false statement. But I hate boring salads. My husband can sit down to a giant bowl of baby spinach, splash some Primal Kitchens Ranch on it and he’s a happy camper. That makes me want to vomit and die a little inside.
So I’m on the hunt for really yummy salad dressings and favorite toppings, because that seems to make all the difference. I’m attempting to eat all the veggies, because you know… growing a tiny human and it matters.
Anyway! Here’s what my workouts looked like this week:
