Blame It On the Breakfast Burritos!


I thought Thursday would never come! This week has seemed so long, but at least I get tomorrow off. Woo-hoo!!!

I did not want to get out of bed this morning, let me tell ya! I was so comfy in my maternity sleeping pillow, but I got up anyway and got myself to the gym. I got to the gym a little later than I wanted to because I made us our breakfast burritos.

Sometimes, I just don't have a concept of time. I know I have to leave my house by 6:20 at the latest to be at work by 8 and now I know that 10 minutes to brew our coffee, have my yogurt and make our burritos is just not enough.

It was the breakfast burritos fault, though!

I did manage to get my 23 laps in, so it's not all bad. I don't know what I'd do without that pool!


I go home for lunch every day to let the doggies out, and was looking forward to my whole-wheat chicken calabacita soup that I had already prepped last night. Then, I opened that fridge door and saw that my sneaky, sneaky hubby had taken it for himself!!! Boo!!!

What to do now?

I turned to frozen veggies, shrimp and pre-made pesto sauce with some of the left-over whole-wheat rotini. It was actually quite good and it made me realize that having some cooked whole-wheat pasta/rice ready to go in the fridge might be a good idea to keep in stock.


I was really busy at work today, but all is good when it's interrupted with some PB & Choco goodness in the form of Reece's cereal.

You have to learn to enjoy the small things in life!


BACON!!! (Said in that doggy, bacon commercial voice!!!)

I had planned to make this yummy bacon, spinach & pasta dish but I was out of spinach. I thought I could substitute it with asparagus, but when I got home it just seemed to heavy for me. 100+ degree weather will do that to your appetite.

Since my hubby said he didn't care what I made, I opted for some easy BACON + chicken lettuce wraps. I used some canned chicken and cooked 4 pieces of bacon. I then added some celery and 2 T of ranch dressing. I topped it with some sesame seeds and had some pita chips on the side.

Overall, it was pretty good. I love dishes that come together so simply.


For dessert, I had some mango goodness. I won't lie, I had a handful of the Reece's PB cereal and almost made a grab for the marshmallows, but I restrained myself. Oh that Sugar was at it again, tempting me with those marshmallows.

I said "NO!", though, and now I'm quite proud for tonight!

Any Reading?

Only a couple of chapters, I wish I had more time!!!

I usually only work out 4 times a week when I get my Friday's off, but I need to add one more workout in this weekend. We always walk the doggies all three days, but I really have to work on my stretching! That'll be one of my goals this weekend.

We're also going to try to set up the nursery this weekend, it should be fun :)
