This post is going to be quick — I’ve been up all night throwing up and just feeling like poo.

I had my typical Spark/Rehydrate/Catalyst combo yesterday before going to the gym. I also ate a chunk of a cinnamon raisin bagel.

I worked out for about an hour and a half, doing some interval on the elliptical then working my chest, biceps and back. Getting up and just going to the gym makes me feel so much better and really starts my day off on the right foot.

Back at home I made my go-to breakfast right now of one fried egg and four egg whites laid over a piece of ezekiel toast thats got some mustard and avocado schmeared on it. This is seriously so good, and has been my breakfast now for the last week. I’ve even eaten it for dinner a few times. I was still starving after I ate this, so I had another chunk of toast, and a few handfuls of cocoa puffs.

Logan had some yogurt [which he loved eating out of the actual container] and some banana slices. The new Chrsistmas Tree ornament had to join us too, I got this at church in our ornament swap, and now Logan carries it around with him all day.




After breakfast we played around for a litttle bit, then got to work on making some Christmas cookies. This was a fun little activity to kill some time. We didn’t decorate the cookies yet, because I’m still trying to decide if letting a 20 month old have a jar of sprinkles is a good idea.

After having a quick snack, and AdvoBar for me and some orange slices and goldfish for Logan, we ventured out for a winter walk. It had been snowing all morning and finally let up, and the thought of just being outside, seeing some snow, and getting some fresh air was so appealing.


By the time we got back inside, it was time to get our lunch together. I whipped up Logan some noodles, cottage cheese, and some turkey and pepperoni slices. I had some turkey meatloaf, some left over brown rice mixed with veggies, and a little chunk of baked eggplant. This baked eggplant is one of our favorite things to have for dinner. It is ridiculously good, and something you HAVE to try. Logan’s telling me that my lunch is ‘hawt’ ‘hawt’.


Nap time couldn’t come fast enough, I was starting to run out of steam. Logan slept for about 3 hours, and I slept for 2. I don’t know what I would do without these afternoon naps.

Nausea started kicking in a little, and I just wanted something warm, and bready- but not bread. So I made a little microwave muffin that’s super high in protein. It’s just 2 tbsp coconut flour, 3 tbsp applesauce, 2 egg whites, 1 tsp cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp baking powder, and a little stevia. Mix it up, and microwave it for two minutes. It looks super ugly, but it’s to die for. Logan just had a little squeeze pouch and begged for a sugar cookie.


We went to my in-laws for dinner, and I didn’t snap any pictures, but we had a great dinner of spaghetti with meat sauce, broccoli salad, and bread. By the time we got home, I was feeling super full, and have been battling constipation, so I decided to drink some prune juice. I did a half an hour of prenatal yoga and called it a night. And from there, every thing went downhill. Starting at 2 am I was up throwing up and just wanting to curl up and sleep.
