if u have been following me for a while. U know I prep my meals A LOT. I love meal prepping! But ever since I’ve gotten pregnant, my meal preps have gotten boring, and truth is some weeks I don’t prep because with pregnancy and breastfeeding… some days I just don’t feel….. inspired anymore. Now that I’m back on my nutrition health kick. I’m going to try to make 1 meal with u every week. You should though pop your chicken in the air fryer for 20 mins and have eggs made or if you prefer make it along with the rice. It is all up to you. So, this week is going to be my 113 grams Protein Kimchi FriedRice. U don’t … Continue reading Over 100 grams protein meal prep!
I had to change my negative self-talk, to talk nicely to myself, to be gentle and not be soo demanding with myself. I was in the shower the other day (I know. It seems like everyone get their epiphany in the shower) and I heard myself say, I will be 6 months postpartum soon, I SHOULD be…. And then I caught myself and think, wait what. No! I shouldn’t be anything! My postpartum journey will happen for me when the time is right. I just have to put my head down and keep grinding. It isn’t easy for sure. But there is no SHOULD, there is no time frame to follow as to when I will feel 100% like myself. It all will happen for me.

And sometimes I don’t even know what to do with it even though I have been taking care of it my whole life.

Things do get easier. We can look at things more positively. Mentally… there are hard days and of course there are easy days. But for the month of December, there just seems to be more hard days than others. Some days I just want baby girl to come now. Some days I just want to be bubble wrap and never leave the house. Some days I don’t know if I ever will be ready for baby girl’s arrival. Some days I have no idea what I am doing at all. Some days I am like, where am I again? Phew. Hormones you know.
