I had every intention to post more often about this pregnancy, but here I am in my third trimester and I haven’t had a lot to say about it this time around. I feel like it has flown by! It probably helps that I’ve been preoccupied with writing my second cookbook and have been working in my office full-time, so I just haven’t had the chance to think about what my body is going through– which is maybe a good thing? It’s amazing how our bodies can do so much on auto-pilot.

That also means I’ve done nothing special in terms of working out. If you’ll remember, I consistently did modified barre workouts up until 35 weeks with my first pregnancy. (Not to mention, I walked my dog 2 to 3 miles everyday.) This time, I don’t think I’ve formally worked out more than three times in the last 7 months. I hope to change that in the near future, but I’ve only got two more weeks to work on final recipe tweaks for my next book, so I’ve been trading-in exercise for standing in my kitchen for several hours each night. Hopefully it all evens out, especially considering that I do lift and chase a 30-pound toddler around my house pretty regularly. Lately, we’ve been swimming at the pool after work, which wears the whole family out!
