Finally, a weekend filled with beautiful weather! Hubby and I woke up early on Saturday morning and completed all of our grocery shopping for the upcoming week at our two favorite grocers, Wegmans and Lidl. Grocery shopping has been something we now do together but independently since we both are following two very different diets. I plan on writing a post in the near future going in to more detail about our diet differences and how we grocery shop and plan our meals. In brief, Andrew follows a strict no carb diet and I, in contrast follow a low carb diet. I focus primarily on portion control and reducing sugar consumption in order to manage and maintain my weight. I have altered my meals slightly to incorporate more carbs because I am pregnant but in small portions.
After grocery shopping we spent the remainder of Saturday with family and enjoyed a mini pre-summer cookout. As you can see from the picture above crab legs was on the menu. I definitely enjoyed my crab legs. I have been craving seafood lately in my pregnancy and the majority of the meals I prepare have had some sort of seafood in them. Despite, my cravings for having less than 5 weeks left until Jr. arrives I think I am maintaining my weight and figure well. The only place I seem to be growing is right where is should (my belly). Jr. definitely will be packing on more weight in the coming weeks as he prepares for his arrival into the world.
Today is Sunday, and we made our weekly weekend visit to the library (Abby’s favorite place). Together, we are working to complete 100 books before Kindergarten. Our local library actually has a reading list available that we have been following. Abby is doing a great job in checking books off her list. I am positive we will have exceeded reading all 100 books and more before the start of Kindergarten in the Fall.
Once we arrived back home from the library I immediately began my meal prep for the week. Now, everything is packed and ready for the week. Hubby spent a short time searching for my breast pump in storage and to his success was able to find it. That was the last item we needed to locate in order to be prepared for Jr. I refused to have to purchase a new pump. I am so grateful that Andrew was able to locate my breast bump and all of my supplies/equipment.
As Sunday comes to a close, I hope all of my readers have a blessed and successful week ahead. Remember to take some time out before bed to review your calendar for important events and tasks. Be sure to also reflect on your goals- new and current.
