Weekend Recap + A New Snack To Feel Good About

Monday, February 10, 2014

Howdy Friends,

How was your weekend? Mine was busy but not too eventful. This is the only weekend in February that E and I are actually going to be home so we had a lot of errands to run and things to take care of. I was also "suppose to be" on modified bed rest because I pulled a hip flexor and abdominal muscle last week. My hip flexors were feeling really tight Friday before last and this goofball decided it would be a good idea to run on the treadmill on Saturday. By the time I got off, they were screaming at me. It got worse as the week went on, so being the paranoid 1st time prego lady that I am, I went to see the doctor on Thursday. I got to listen to baby girl's heartbeat and the doctor reassured me that it was just pulled muscles and baby was fine. Thank goodness!

Saturday morning, started off pretty slow with a little Olympics watching and a big cup of decaf coffee!

I don't know about you guys, but I could seriously sit on my couch (while doing push-ups, squats, and sit-ups during commercials of course) for the next two weeks and just watch the Olympics! I love love love them!

The incredible displays of athleticism are awe inspiring, but I think I like hearing the back stories on all the athletes just as much. Some of them have overcome so much to make it to the Olympics! It's so inspiring!

After catching up on the Olympics, I headed to meet a friend for lunch and return some items at the mall. I was hoping to find a new dress to wear to a wedding shower I have coming up, but it was a no go. I'm in that super fun stage where I don't have a cute baby bump, but nothing fits. Oh, well I'm sure I'll look plenty pregnant soon and then I'll miss these days! All in due time :) After the mall, it was time for a nap and then dinner with the hubs and more Olympics.

Sunday, was full of laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning the house, and working on some stuff for baby girl. While I was at the store, I came across a mango and was shocked to see how big it was. My weekly FitPregnancy email said baby girl was the size of a mango last week. Crazy to think she is that big already!

I also picked up a couple of my new favorite bars. Have you ever tired a Detour SMART bar? They are gluten free, low in sugar, delicious, and packed with 10g of protein for only 130 calories! What??? I know!

I found them about three weeks ago and I love them! They are perfect for a snack and keep you extremely full for a 130 calorie bar! I would definitely suggest giving them a try.

Sunday evening was pretty low key. We grilled some fish, butternut squash, and sausage for E. I topped my fish with mango pico de gallo and sliced avocado. It turned out to be extremely colorful and delicious!

I got a little carried away with the pico, but it was so good! We watched the Olympics for the remainder of the evening and finished laundry. :) After a weekend of rest, my hip flexor was feeling a bit better but it's still not back to normal. I'm definitely going to have to be more careful moving forward. Live and learn right?

I hope you all have a happy healthy Monday!

In health,

  1. I've tried some other Detour bars, but not this Smart one. I would definitely be down for trying this variation. :) Also, I don't know if I've had butternut squash, but I've been seeing it in recipes everyone and one of my good friends has it all the time. I've been trying to find a good recipe to try it for the first time!
