Being a second time mom is a funny thing. Yesterday I dropped Emmalyne off at school and it was just Bryn and me all day long. It was the easiest day ever! When I had brought Emmie home from the hospital I felt pretty in control but still overwhelmed. I was always “busy” with her during the day and it was hard to eat, shower, or do whatever. This time? Not so much. I made Em and I breakfast and nursed Bryn. I also managed to get both kids in the car and Em to school on time. Throughout the day I got everything done I had hoped to while still interacting with my sweet baby. Oh the glory of being an experienced mom 🙂 Since I did manage a full day of eats, I thought I would share them for What I Ate Wednesday! Don’t forget to link up with Jenn!
A pretty standard for me breakfast – scrambled eggs with cheese and bacon on a whole wheat English muffin and fresh fruit. A big cup of coffee on the side.
Didn’t get all my snacks pictured but I did munch on homemade trail mix in the morning, I had some cheese and crackers in the afternoon and a couple of chocolate chip cookies my mom made before she left.
One of my favorite grab and go options – an EVOL chicken burrito! Lots of smashed avocado on the side.
I have REALLY good friends who offered to bring me a couple of dinners. Last night Leslie Ann brought over this delicious feast. Pork loin, veggies, salad, brown rice, and croissants. Got to love it 🙂
My mom also made this cranberry cake for our last dinner together on Monday. Chris and I are enjoying the leftovers and had a slice while snuggling Em on the couch last night before bath time.
Overall I feel pretty good about my eats. There is definitely some “cleaning up” to do in this area when I start trying to lose the last few pounds of pregnancy weight. I was cleared to start working out after a visit to the OB Monday as long as I ease back into things. SO – I am hoping over the next week or so I start working on getting back into shape.
Happy Wednesday friends! I’ll be back tomorrow sharing how I am recovering from baby 🙂
