Eating better

Just like when I wasn't pregnant, I'm struggling to eat healthier. Ugh. Today I made Black Bean Quinoa salad that I totally stole from the Zumba Queen herself...Kimberly. It's right up my alley and if you can eat it slow enough so that it's four servings...it's core.

I think I'm going to try to going back to eating core...more of it and ignore the flexies...but I think I need to fill up my dietary day with more fruits and veggies rather than bagels, butter, and candy. Seems to make sense to me.

I'm also not used to this hormonal stuff. I never really had bad PMS (curse at me if it makes you feel better) but I left work "sick" today because I was afraid a library patron would come in and make me cry...I was *that* on edge all day. I just do not feel like myself today and it make me feel yucky. I think it's a combo of stress, looking at houses that Chris and I can't agree on, and the fact that I'm not sleeping so great. To remedy all this, I set up an appointment for a prenatal massage tomorrow. I told the appointment lady that I didn't need the special table, but I needed someone who was certified in prenatal because the rumor is...if you're massaged "wrong" you can have weird stuff happen like dizziness, headaches and in rare cases...contractions. It's an extra $5 but I think it'll be well worth it.

And Marta, I never responded to your comment, so I'm doing it here. We're not going to find out what the baby is (aside from human) before it's born.

I'm glad you liked the recipe. It's now the one thing I make every week so that I always have something to eat even when I don't feel like making anything, and it gives me lots of good stuff that I need.

Congrats on your pregnancy! I really need to keep up with my blog reading! :)

My poor little mommy...I'm glad you went home. You need to take care of yourself, little lady.

Thanks for the sinus thingy review. I'm currently seeing an accupuncturist, taking herbs, and I'm on antibiotics, but I'm still having sinus issues....GRRRR! I'll try that Ayr stuff. You make it sound like so much fun!!! haha!

Okay, for the babe, maybe instead of green, I'll do purple? We'll see.

Hey Congrats! I was not on the blog for a few weeks and was reading and thought pregnant? Did she say pregnant? Again congrats.
And what is wrong with mommy blogs? I think you may find them more interesting now!

LOL, yes...soon you will be inducted into the wild wooly world of mommyblogs.

Not that there's anything wrong with that. :)
