It's ice cream season again!! I saw this recipe on CC Katie's blog and had to try it out. I improvised a little. First I food processed some cashews and almonds (I didn't measure, just saved the extra). Then I made some fudgie babies with almonds, cashews, cocoa and agave and didn't clean out the food processor. I added in a frozen banana, some vanilla, and the cashews and almonds ground up. Food process till smooth! It has a more brown color because of the fudgie babies that were in there. It made a great refreshing dessert!
For the last few weeks, I have been eating whatever I want, including ice cream almost every night since it is in my house - plus baked goods that I've made. I decided after my appointment Monday night (it's totally hard to see your weight being the highest ever, pregnant or not!) that I need to get back on track - fruit, veggies, fake desserts that do the trick. Hence I made the banana ice cream on Tuesday and last night and it is a great treat. Grapes and strawberries are in our house, bananas, and a bunch of veggies. I feel back on track now and better about what I'm eating!
I had a dr appt on Monday evening - the baby's heart rate was around 148, which is has been consistently. I still feel like I am carrying higher than I was with Nick, I'm definitely having trouble getting to sleep without propping myself up. I feel like my hips got bigger with this pregnancy based on the way my shorts/pants fit. My weight gain so far has been 18 lbs, I have to go back and see what it was with Nick, but I feel like I am gaining more with #2 now, and I thought you were supposed to gain less. Oh well - I'm excited to have my body back in a few months and work on getting it back into normal shape!
Swimming - I'm getting less and less motivated to swim, even though it feels good when I do. I can't get up for the 5:30 masters practices anymore so I try to go one day a week on my own and it's hard to motivate. I do one day with them on Saturdays since it is at 6:30. Last week the PH was high and water was disgusting. Running - some days I can't even call it that, and most days it takes a long time to warm up. It's going ok.
My DOVE soap obsession returned. Some of you who have been reading remember I had this thing for Dove soap in my pregnancy with Nick. I had it in the bathroom at school so that I could use it when I washed my hands and loved the smell of it and washing my hands. Well.. that is happening again. Haha, so random! It seems my hair has started to shed again, right when I hit the 3rd tri - same with the soap!
It's been really nice out the last 3 days here. I told Nick it was hat day so he'd wear his hat out in the sun :)
