Pregnancy Week 14-Bump Watch October 18, 2017

Week 14 is here and I slept great last night…..I got a full 40 minutes… that sums up my week, in a nutshell. I have had such a hard time falling asleep and staying asleep. Even though I don’t feel like doing much of anything, I am still trying to push through and get my workouts in and eat clean and healthy. I am waking up at 5 a.m. and working out almost every morning and let me be real for a second….this is hard, like, really, freaking, hard! Before pregnancy, I would pop right up, drink pre-workout and be jacked about going to the gym, not so easy now.

On another note, you know “those” woman who glow like magical fairies during their first trimester? Yeah, that’s not me! God, help a sista out! This mama has zits all over her face and feels like a bloated whale. Even though my first trimester has not been magical, maybe the “pregnancy glow bug” will bite me soon…..let’s pray. Even though I am trying to be perfect this pregnancy through clean eating and exercise, I am aware I am going to struggle a bit. I’ll be honest, I am having a hard time mentally with gaining weight because I have come so far with my health and weight loss. I am trying to practice grace and gratitude with myself and body, but guys, I am struggling, some days are hard. Don’t get me wrong, I am so blessed with this sweet gift, but I am a woman and gaining weight is never easy. In the previous weeks, I have struggled with not really wanting anything to eat. To top this off, I am having really bad food aversions to most meats and some vegetables. The only thing on my mind lately has been a plain baked potato and oranges. The beginning of this week, I noticed that my morning sickness was easing up, but not so fast ……IT”S BACK! This makes eating well-balanced meals throughout the day hard because veggies and healthy stuff sound gross, but hey, I am still trying to push through for my health and the baby’s health.

Below I am detailing my meal and workout plan for the week: Most of my meals are designed around the Paleo and Whole 30 guidelines, but I am using Food Freedom for those foods I really WANT and that are “worth it.”

    Thank you so much for these updates! And thank you for being “real”! Gaining weight is hard, even good weight! I love the youtube workout ideas to mix things up! I have such a hard time feeling in a rut sometimes with my workouts. Would love to see more of these!
