Pancake Sunday, 19 weeks, end of month


Here was pancake Sunday - same pancakes as last week for one batch, then I tried another batch of whole wheat vegan pancakes from the Clean Eating Mama's recipe. I love pancake Sundays! Send me your recipe to try!

I did not like these quite as much as I love Avery's pancakes, but they were good!




They needed something - so almond butter was good with them.
The apple/banana pancakes are good just by themselves. So yummy!

Here's both - the apple/banana in the back and whole wheat in the front.



Then for dinner, I made a veggie lasagna and whole wheat bread. This bread was really good and probably the first time that bread turned out for me perfectly. The funny thing is that the directions said to let it sit for 20 minutes and I let it sit for 2 hours while I was doing things. I hardly kneaded the dough, but it turned out great!



19 weeks -I hit 19 weeks yesterday - this is going really fast and I want it to slow down (I want the pregnancy to be done! but I am not ready to have a baby right now!)
This week I feel like I really hit my stride. I'm tired at night but not afternoons anymore, which is fine. I try to go to bed early! This week being hit with snow had some good things that came along with it: I found a new routine that I like better!

Monday: Swim
Tuesday: Run
Wednesday: Jillian (easy day)
Thursday: Run
Friday: Run
Saturday: Yoga and Jillian (easy day)
Sunday: Run

I ended up with my highest mileage in a while: 31.4 miles and it felt good! I only swam one day but it was nice to sleep later instead of getting up so early. The past few weeks I have been running Saturday and Sunday and since I sleep in on the weekends, I was kind of dreading running both days, so I may try this new schedule, and maybe throw in another day of swimming if I'm feeling it or go later in the day or on Saturday!

End of the month challenges: The food bill was decreased - I did well on that front and will continue to try to hit a lower budget in March. For fruits and veggies, I made a conscious effort but didn't count past day 2. Getting there!

  6. I love knowing there are other runners out there who run while pregnant! While I'm no longer pregnant, I think I would've gone crazy those 9 1/2 months without my running. Keep up the great work!

  7. Pancake Sunday sounds fun. Bread is really hard to do. My bread has never turned out well, but I'll keep trying. I can't eat wheat so it can be quite hard getting the balance right of different flours.

    31 miles. I can't believe your not exhausted. I've been hitting about 15 (well I abandoned Sunday so didn't make that this week) and that is enough for me. I was hoping to maybe get up to 20, but I'm not convinced my body wants to do that. Perhaps it is the fact that I have to have 3 late nights a week due to work, but seriously great going from you!

    Oh and I know what you mean about Pregnancy flying by, but wanting to be further on. I've def been fed up the past 2 weeks, but I'm sure part of that is just wanting to get to the Easter break and it is still 5 weeks away, by which time I'll already be in 3rd trimester! Yikes!

    Take care,
    Kaz.
