Mommy Needs Coffee: Hot water + Dates!

Workout: 20 min yoga + 20 min swim

Another day, another BB breakdown at the daycare. Fun times!

This one wasn't so bad and the 20 min swim got me feeling better about the whole situation, I just have to take it one breakdown at a time. Plus, after a month or so of cold showers at the gym, we got our hot water back. 'Twas glorious!

But today I wish I could have more than one of these:

I'm just so tired, I think I may be trying to fight a cold and hopefully I will :) Hello sinus cleaning, honey and oranges!

I know yesterday's blog was more of the Mommy Needs Coffee variety and it was such a bummer, too! Thanks for listening and the kind words - it helps to know I'm not the only one going through it and I  wholeheartedly agree that:

me+a workout > me-a workout

Plus, after reading Three Surprising Tips for an Easier Labor it gave me more motivation to continue my strength training plan. Squatting and lunges are some of my "favorite" exercises and it's good to know it may help on that whole upcoming labor thing.

I'm also definitely going to make sleeping a priority, it just gets so hard once the belly is in full bloom - and IT is! I've been averaging anywhere from 6-7 of sleep but the middle of the night wake-ups have started so my new goal is to be in bed by 10. Maybe if I write it and repeat it enough it will come true!

Also, note to self: stock up on dates this weekend. Apparently, having 6 dates a day can lead to an easier labor. Sign.Me.Up.Please! Not knowingly, it's a good thing I made some date+pumpkin whole-wheat bread this weekend so I'm on the right path. I just need to start planning my date shakes and date oatmeal concoctions.

Are you a date fan? Favorite recipes? Random easier labor tips you swear by?

ADios :)

I first read date as going out with your husband, and I was all, like, "Whoa! What are they recommending?" I haven't eaten a ton of dates but they are especially good wrapped in bacon.

Yeah. I'll leave with you that.

Sorry BB had a breakdown at daycare. You are definitely not alone on that one, either. I had to just walk out yesterday and tune out the fussing.
