With this pregnancy, I have had no desire to eat healthfully. And yes, I know that that is THE more important thing that you can do for yourself and your child while you're pregnant...but dangit, I'm just so hungry for junk food! I'm talking, frozen pizza, cheetos, candy, cake, cookies-you name it.
It's frustrating to me, because I know better...but the cravings are so strong that I almost NEED those foods. Can anyone relate?
In the beginning of this pregnancy, I did a lot of research and reading on the best foods to eat while pregnant, and came across this article. I loved that it was all real food, and a very simple diet. I've gone back to it numerous times, just for a little bit of motivation.
I have also been reading through The Birth Book, by Dr. Sears and his wife, where they give more information on eating a balanced diet. If you're pregnant and haven't read this it. It is by far the best book that I read on birth.

Another list

Are you a list maker? I for one LOVE making lists! The feeling of crossing off a task, and knowing that you have accomplished something gives me a feeling of...relief. Lately, I have been making lists upon lists, weekly menus, To Do lists for every day, To Do lists for the coming weeks, freezer meal lists, cleaning lists, etc. Seriously...I love making lists!

Here's what is on my "daily to-do list"

-wipe out counters and sinks
-pick up toys, anything out of place,

It's really simple, but IF I do these three things every day, I feel less stressed out, and am more likely to be productive in other areas during the day.

Life has been busy, busy , busy lately. Isn't summer always that way?
Here's what I've been up to:

-Growing baby #2 (boy or girl...what's your guess??)
-Pinteresting (is that a word?) way too many things during nap time
-The usual, cooking and cleaning
-Coming up with new activities to keep my little mister busy
-Trying to stay cool
-Drinking water
-Attempting to sleep
-Watching Ugly Betty
-Going to a Tuesday night Bible Study at my church

Those seem to be things that keep popping up lately...especially the whole nesting thing. I didn't really have any urge to "nest" with my little mister, but for some reason, with this one I can't seem to clean enough!

What have you been up to lately?
