Well, after a long break I am ready to get back at it with 2 announcements! First, check out my new do! 🙂 Wow, I should have done this along time ago. Having a “cute” haircut at 34 is what I am all about these days, you can read more about my cosmetic clinic in this link, the lady who cuts my hair made sure to give me the best tips on how to shave your underarms! lol I can remember hating when someone said I looked cute when I was a teenager, like that made me young and that was bad! Those were the days! 🙂
Now for my big announcement! We are having another baby! 🙂 I guess God thought the world needed a 3rd Monroe/McGehee and our bundle of joy will be here the end of March!
For the past 6 weeks I have been dealing with the normal pregnancy stuff like all day nausea, vomiting, fatigue and just not feeling well. I am now 13.5 weeks so I am hoping this part will pass quickly.
Food has been such a struggle like it always is during pregnancy. Luckily, I have learned from both of my previous pregnancies. With my first, I gained almost 60 lbs (which is half my body weight) and with my second, 45 lbs. Carbs are never my friend but especially when I am pregnant. During this pregnancy, I eat as little carbs as I feel my body needs but seriously do best on high fat red meat and salads. We went to Texas de Brazil a few weeks ago and I can honestly say, that was the best I have felt 12 hours after eating! I find when I indulge in carbs I just feel worse and I know from experience what will happen on the scales! I know our pregnant bodies must gain weight but 60 lbs and maybe even 45 lbs is a bit to much for this 5’1″ frame. I eat healthy and if I choose to indulge, it is small amounts but usually I just find a low-carb and healthier option. I have been using more convenience foods, like these from Wheat-Free Market.
Prayers are greatly appreciated for a healthy pregnancy and delivery and more updates soon and maybe even a baby bump picture! 🙂 I have so many recipes I would like to post but honestly don’t know when that will happen! Luckily my site is full of recipes as well as my 2 cookbooks!
God Bless and Happy Cookin’,
