Thankfully, this pregnancy allows me to actually eat healthy foods. When I was pregnant with Vienna, all I could eat were tater tots, subs and chicken fingers. It was fun but riddled with miserable consequences. My ass was huge, my arms were bulky. I looked like a linebacker. In her broken English, Nico's grandmother told me at my baby shower, "From the front, it looks like [you're having a] girl. From the back? Boy." Which was awesome.
I vowed when I got pregnant second time around that I'd carry like Kourtney Kardashian- little body and baby belly. Not so much- I still look like a line backer, but I'm hoping with my exercise habits and relatively healthy food choices that when it comes to drop the baby weight it'll be a bit easier this time. I am 30. Everyone says it'll be harder now, so every bit of effort I make has got to help. For the love.
Or so I tell myself now. I'll keep you posted.
Anything pumpkin and chai to me is a treat. So I made myself a little pumpkin chai smoothie tonight. A healthy one. I'm tricking myself.
1/2 cup Pumkin Puree
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Chai Spice
1 TBSP Agave
1 1/2 cup Almont Milk
Yum. Happy 23 weeks to me!
