Some of you have been wondering where I’ve been since I haven’t posted in a while. Well, Big NEWS, I’m pregnant! Wow, it’s a far cry from what I was doing last summer- bikini competitions and being Single Digit Body Fat! Last year was all about getting lean & fit and doing crazy competitions. This year is all about gaining weight, in the right places of course for having a healthy baby! As you can see from the Picture Mark is ecstatic, and I’m rockin’ the Bump now! Everyone wants to touch my belly it’s hilarilous!
I’m over half way through my pregnancy and I have learned a lot through this process about diet, lifestyle habits and exercise. Even though I already train clients who are pregnant, being prego gave me a whole new appreciation for what they are going through when they train with me. Thanks for all your love and support Ladies!
I avoided the deficiencies that can be linked to pregnancy and I have had a very comfortable pregnancy overall. I did feel the nausea most women feel in the 1st trimester, but I did learn some secrets about how to lessen it, but luckily I got through it pretty quickly also. It was still tough though, so again I have such an appreciation for other women who have had children and of course my Mom and Grandma!
Since I didn’t get a chance to make another holiday recipe this year yet, here’s the link to one I made in the past that’s super yummy and healthy! It’s my holiday cranberry orange scones. They are flourless and sooo yummy with agave coconut oil spread. Your family will love them and not even know you are feeding them something healthy! A little trickery never hurt any one! Have a wonderful Holiday Season with your family and look for more recipes and Health tips soon!
Wishing you wellness,
