I Tried It Tuesday

I’m linking up for Tried it Tuesday and Treat Yourself Tuesday. I’m pretty excited that it’s Tuesday, because we’re only 2 days away from my 20 week anatomy scan and supposedly it’s one of the more fun appointments 🙂 I’ll be sure to keep you guys in the loop.

LSR - Tried it Tuesday

I tried my hand at some protein pancakes. They turned out okay, but I won’t be making them again. They’re protein powder, Pumpkin and egg whites.

I tried my Snoogle the other night. I’ve read a lot of good things about this pillow and while my sleep hasn’t been horrible, it hasn’t been the best. Not gonna lie, it seems like it should be simple, but I can’t figure it out. So far, it isn’t helping me sleep at all. I tried asking Dr. Google and it didn’t help much. Looks like I’ll need an in person lesson from a friend (that’s you Pam).

I tried a Peanut Butter & Jelly Quest BarI’ve been trying to keep a healthy stash of snack at my desk so I can avoid the candy drawer. Sometimes the Quest bars leave my tummy a little wonky, so I’ll eat half a bar at a time and save the rest for a few hours later. I usually stick to the cookie dough, mint chip and white chocolate raspberry, but I branched out a bought a ton of new flavors that I’m excited to try. PB&J was a winner!

I tried my Gabrialla running belt and I’m glad I bought one! I started using this around week 18. Remember, my belly is a bit bigger than the average person because of the left over fluid from OHSS. I read that the belt can chafe bare skin, so I’ve been wearing a tank top to prevent that. Well, halfway wearing a tank top, haha. It’s usually pretty hot in our treadmill room (despite having a fan and portable AC blowing on me) because of the huge window and blazing heat/sun. Always good to have Nuun in the cup to keep mom and baby #healthyandhydrated!

Gabrialla Running BeltI tried my first smoked turkey! It was AHHHHHH-mazing! Seriously, so good. Friends of ours have a big green egg and smoked it in that. I can still smell and taste is now. We also had salad, green beans roasted in coconut oil and a portobello/asiago cheese scalloped potato dish. Yum!

And on this Fine Tuesday, I’m treating myself to a decaf Nespresso espresso and a bite of a cupcake after lunch. Still working on keeping the sugar low, but deprivation leads to over indulgence, so a little bite won’t hurt 😉

  1. “Treating” yourself to a “bite” of cupcake??!!

    Girl, pregnant or not, eat the damn cupcake. Lol…..I’m being silly, but in all seriousness….a cupcake (or even 2, imagine that), is just fine for you AND for baby!!’ Honestly, relax and enjoy your pregnancy!

    You look reat btw!!!

    • Oh I know. I had an exceptionally bad weekend of eating! Baby and momma had WAY too much sugar- which has been my downfall lately- and I’m trying to reign it in. But I know I’m not going to be able to say no to the cupcake this afternoon, so a bite will do just fine. Trying to have some moderation 🙂

  2. Well I want TURKEY IN MY FACE right now… AND I BLAME YOU!!!!!

    And I used to LIVE on protein powder, pumpkin & eggs!!!!!!!! I kinda wanna make one of those pancakes and wrap it around some smoked turkey! AND HOOVER IT!

    • Maybe I jsut had the wrong combo of those ingredients… who know?! That pancake wrap would almost be Thanksgiving like! My fave holiday 🙂

  3. Protein pancakes can be really great if you have a good recipe.. I hope you give them another try! If you don’t feel like using a recipe- my go to mix is About Time’s Chocolate Chip Protein Pancake Mix.. it is so simple to make! You can also get 25% off when you use coupon code ‘CLEANEATING’ 🙂 And I totally agree with you.. that Lemon Questbar definitely tastes just like Pledge- gross!

  4. July was a crazy month for me and I hadn’t been able to read your blog since mid June. I was so excited to read your good news on your baby girl! Congrats to you and Todd!

  6. That pillow was a life saver for me. I wanted to keep it after the kids were born, but my husband wouldn’t allow it. He hated it because it took up too much room in the bed and he could never know that I was in there with him! LOL.
