Happy FRIDAY to us all. <3
Oh yes. I love me my Fridays.
1. I thought I hated donuts?
So the other night at the pool party with friends there was food (obv), and I was starving. I ate chips, salad, and donuts (there were hot dogs, but me no likey). Say what?! I hate donuts??! Or so I thought….
I think I don’t like the glazed ones…but the white powdered ones?? Oh my goodness–it tasted so good when I popped that first lil’ one in my mouth.
they looked like this:
I had 4 of those suckers & that was my favorite part of the ‘dinner.’
2. Annnnnnd continuing on the food thoughts, veggies hate me right now.
It’s like the 1st trimester is trying to get me again!
I keep spending time in the bathroom (ifyaknowwhatImean) a few hours after eating veggies.
I am scared to eat salad or green smoothies right now.
It’s so so sad. I was complaining about it to Jared actually (surprise surprise), and I am all like “I LIKE those foods. Why does my body reject them?!!?”
It’s sad and annoying and frustrating. Especially because those types of foods (powdered donuts, etc) shouldn’t make me feel awesome and veggies should. But right now it’s the total opposite for me.
Gah. But it is what it is! And this baby girl is worth it. <3
3. Here’s what I ate for lunch the other day.
yikes. and yes, it was AWESOME.
4. I am ‘running’ a 5K tomorrow.
Yah, I know. CRAZY girl. Especially since I haven’t run since my 1st trimester. This’ll be interesting!
Let’s be honest though it’ll be more of a run/walk thing. And because it’s the COLOR RUN it’s just for fun & not timed at all. Don’t you worry, I won’t be stealing your PR times or setting world records or anything. 😉
I am doing it with Ashley too, so it’ll be a blast! I already feel bad for making her slow her pace b/c of me & the bump…..
5. Some days are harder than others to get up out of bed lately.
The other morning I popped out of bed in the 4 a.m. hour to go teach BP. But that day was rrroouuuggghhh.
You can see it in my eyes–I was awake b/c I had to use the restroom (it’s like 4-5x/night lately!! gah!), but was so not ‘awake’ & ready to teach.
But I make sacrifices to teach because it’s something I love to do! And, when it’s over in the 6 a.m. hour, even better. Done for the day-BOOM!
6. And to end….an ode to my ever thoughtful husband.
Dude. how did I manage to snag him?
This showed up on my doorstep yesterday:
It is a PINK (!!) cooling towel.
Ya know, because I love pink, I am hot all the time, and I get wayyyy hot after teaching fitness classes. And I’ve been complaining about all of the above nonstop to my awesome husband. Seriously, what the heck is up with this marriage?! hah.
All you do is wet it, and the properties of the towel keep it cool. It rocks!
This man is a keeper. And I am so in love with him. Thanks, hottie!
Alright, I am off to work, teach zumba, work, and then hopefully have a date with my husband if he ever gets home from school at a normal hour!
Have a GREAT weekend! <3
What veggies are YOU loving lately?!? (so I can be jealous) What are YOUR weekend plans?!? What is a thoughtful thing someone did for YOU recently??!
