Avocado toast is always one of my quick go to breakfast/snack options, ESPECIALLY during pregnancy because of the numerous amazing health benefits for me & my growing baby 🥑🤰🏼..Why this butter fruit should be a staple in your pregnancy diet⁉️ 1. Packed with Vitamins - Avocados are a great(smell-free) way to add good fats and tons of vitamins like vitamin E, vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin B6 and B5, potassium, carotenoids, magnesium, folate, lutein, and and dietary fiber. 2. Help to combat nausea and 'morning' sickness due to the large amount of vitamin B6. 3. Packed with Folate - Crucial in the early neural development of your baby. Low folate levels very early on (sometimes even before you know you're pregnant) are linked to neural tube disorders and spina bifida (so a great nutrient packed edition to add into your diet if you're currently trying also)4. Maintain blood sugar levels and lower blood cholesterol.5. Contains Calcium - During pregnancy, your body’s need for calcium goes up DRASTICALLY. That is why it is important to include calcium rich foods like avocados in order to take care of your body’s calcium needs.6. Rich in Iron - help to battle anemia and iron deficiency while preggo7. Aids in Digestion - important for those mummas suffering from constipation8. Baby Brain Development - A cup of avocado contains 22 mg of choline that aids brain development and healthy nerve development of your baby.👶🏼..So eat up this delicious nutrient packed buttery fruit!! & if you're currently struggling to meet your health, fitness or nutrition goals, please send me an email & let's see how I can help you !! 💕🤗

Transformation Tuesday – About 30 weeks pregnant to about 30 weeks post-partum 😊. Clearly I love pregnancy transformation pictures, but I mean it when I say if my chocolate addicted, Netflix lovin’ ass can do it, so can you Mama 😘.My top 5 tips for mama’s not wanting to lose their physique through/after pregnancy:1 (most important): Eat to nourish not only your body, but your baby’s body. Baby eats what you eat! You will have cravings, and I’m not saying don’t ever give in to them – you bet your behind that I did! But not on a regular or daily basis. Remember moderation.2. Piggybacking on number one, you are not eating for two. I know it’s tempting, especially if it’s your first pregnancy, but that’s exactly where first time mama’s go wrong (ask anyone who’s been through it). At most, you need 300-500 calories more per day in your last trimester.3. If you were exercising before pregnancy, keep doing what you were doing! Baby was used to it before you even knew baby was there 🙄. If you weren’t exercising before you got pregnant, start. Start light and watch how your body reacts, but even a daily walk is going to be beneficial for you and the babes💯.4. Piggybacking on number three, don’t be afraid to lift heavy! Later in the pregnancy you might need to lighten the load, but the first two trimesters – do your thing. Make them gains, girl 🤘 – it’s bulking season! You won’t harm your little peanut.5. Listen to your body, but be realistic. If you need rest (the first trimester you’re going to be sleepier than a sloth and if you’re extra lucky, you’ll be sicker than a dog), then rest. But try to determine the difference between being lazy and needing rest, because there is an obvious difference when you look for it. Pro tip: exercise increases energy levels.👌 Pregnancy is scary. Not being able to feel baby right away is nerve racking. Are you eating enough? Are you drinking enough water? Are you getting enough sleep? Is baby healthy? Are you doing anything wrong? The questions are endless. But trust yourself, mama. Trust your body. Trust your instincts. And most importantly, take care of yourself. Your baby is depending on it. ❤ #fitpregnancy #fitmom
so this happened. 32 weeks on the nose. apparently they expect you to go on insulin earlier with your second baby and this is later than with Lily so I really did do everything I could to diet control it. doesn't make me any less gutted though. pre-dinner only to start with and we'll see how we go. 3 high readings over the weekend for normal foods I could have last week with decent readings shot up to 8.1 😒 #32weeks #summer #prepping #fitfam #healthy #sw #slimming #slimming world #food #fitness #exercise #clean #clean eating #food porn #slimming worlduk #eathealthy #leanmuscle #pregnant #gestationaldiabetes #fitpregnancy
Ready to see crazy pregnant girl in action?! 💃🏽😳😜😂 Truth is I didn't want to wake up this morning. It's getting really hard to wake up and do other workouts. I attempted anothe piyo workout this morning but it didn't go well. And I was defeated. But I did not want to give up so easy so I decided to just dance it out.And to be honest I was upset the whole time we were building the final routine. But I fought hard to get out of that mindset. So I arrived at the end happier and just got rid of whatever that negativity was. I repeated the final routine until I couldn't anymore and got my fun on with my goose!
this was gorgeous. 1 syn jacket from Aldi, tuna and mayo (full fat for lowering my bloods, 5 syns per tbsp). reading was 5.6 #32weeks #summer #prepping #fitfam #healthy #sw #slimming #slimming world #food #fitness #exercise #clean #clean eating #food porn #slimming worlduk #eathealthy #leanmuscle #pregnant #gestationaldiabetes #fitpregnancy
I posted a blog post today about why I exercise while pregnant! This includes some insights into why it's totally okay to exercise in pregnancy, and why my "too intense" might be different than yours 😊 .💻Kitchenspired.com! .#fitpregnancy #fitpregnancy journey #babywible #healthypregnancy #pumpthebump #pregnantnotpowerless
Okay, I know I shout her out a lot, but can you blame me?! This girl just blows me away! Her journey is one of my favorites- I LOVE seeing how far she has come, not just physically but mentally! ❤️ # This is 9 months. NINE FREAKIN MONTHS!! 🙌 She's down 70lbs, but also so much more than that. Here is what she had to say: ”9 months ago I was so depressed. I had non stop panic attacks. I binge ate. I barely even functioned as a mom. 😥 It was horrible. And I will NEVER go back.✔I have NEVER got my sweat on longer then an hour.✔I have NEVER deprived myself of yummy treats.✔I have NEVER felt so guilty I've given up.✔I have NEVER felt 0 support because I have my girls and my coaches.✔I have NEVER been so damn proud of myself.-I changed my DAMN LIFE forever in 3/4 of a year. 😍 Physically, mentally, spiritually, in relationships and more."
Been a BIG fan of #butter lately...and this one is the best!!! --- By going grass fed, you avoid consuming grain that most animals are fed... why is that important? Well... cows wouldn't eat grain or corn naturally, so their system rebels and creates inflammation which leads to a sick animal that is pumped with antibiotics ... and overdoing antibiotics has led to decreased immune function and all kinds of probs for humans & animals alike. SO there's my 2 cents! 😘.#pregnantlife #28weekspregnant #givemeALLthebutter #grassfed #kerrygold #realfooddaily #freakingdelicious #healthyhabits #healthypregnancy #fitpregnancy
overcooked scrambled egg on one slice of wholemeal toast on my childs plate for my breakfast.

This girls still GOT IT 🙌🏻🙌🏻 PREGGO diamond push-ups 🙌🏻 💎 Today I sat on the couch trying to talk myself OUT of my workout. Ever done that? Yah. But I remember how GOOD I feel afterward and I do it anyway. I get dressed while I'm STILL telling myself to skip today... I'm tired, baby didn't sleep well, I have laundry to do, I have errands to run, I'm pregnant.....etc.Today's workout is ROUGH. Friday Fight is one of the hardest ones in Max30. But as soon as I started I felt A-MAZING. Literally. I haven't done full diamond push-ups for MONTHS- I loathe push-ups actually 😂. And this move calls for knee-Diamond push-ups. I started out doing that but I was feeling good, like I said. So I was like... what the heck? I'll find out if I can still do them 👊🏻 And I did. TRY new things. CHALLENGE yourself. You will be surprised at what you're truly capable of when you do. You will have belief in yourself you never have. And if you can't? You TRIED. And that is a new goal. If I wouldn't of been able to do it, I could set a new goal for myself. To do a damn diamond push-up. 🙌🏻 Because goals OUTSIDE of a pant size, weight loss and inches lost are IMPORTANT. Non-scale victories will make you MORE successful. When you want to be 'healthy' that means more than a weight. It means long-term habits. Constantly making new goals in your workouts will make that happens. There is ALWAYS room for improvement! #fit #fit spo #fit ness #fit mom #fit nessmotivation #boymom #mom #mom life #mom bod #happy #healthy #pnw #milso #summer #diy #pnw #workout #motivation #instagram #instagood #food #food ie #iifym #girlswholift #fit pregnancy #pregnant #coffee #dogmom #gsd
I love the accountability I have with these ladies. Especially on days like today where it's cloudy and the kids sleep in past 8am. Enjoyed 5 hot/humid miles on one of the most gorgeous fall looking trails!
Day 4 of #SeptemberSelfCare is One-legged Up Dog, modified into a gentle backbend post-Stroller Barre Workout. I always feel great after workout, and I feel like I'm a better mom when I get a chance to move and schweat. I also managed to cut off my legs. 😂😂😂 But, I really liked the clouds and sun in this photo.

3.5 early morning miles 🏃🏼♀️🌙I intended to go longer but a real feel of 39 degrees && rain threw a little kink in the plan 😬☔️⛄️ So instead of snuggling back under my warm comfy sheets, I forced myself to the gym 💪🏼Also, it's hard for me to coordinate working out, eating breakfast, getting ready for work, staying awake && getting an insta pic all before 7am SO...this is the best I've got for today 😂🤷🏼♀️ Happy Tuesday!
Always a princess...I just became a healthier princess 👸🏼.
First workout post Triathlon complete☑️:And now I'm stuck at a crossroad. 😣 For the last year and half I have been doing a constant powebuilder/body building program. I'd add in cardio depending on races; resulting in 2-sometimes 3 a days:But now that I've completed an open ocean swim triathlon; I'm hungry for more. So, do I continue doing what I'm doing putting work into two different types of training-depleting my body at each step.? Or do I pull back on the weights dedicate three solid days to 🏊🏽♀️🚴🏽♀️🏃🏽♀️ and but the weights as a second fiddle.?.Ultimately allowing my body a rest but still someone what achieving my goals.? Ugh...this next week maybe two I'll have a lot of contemplating, lots of planning to do if I want to be ready for Tri-season come March 2018. And possibly compete in my first Olympic Tri and hopefully 🤞🏽 Ironman.:Anyway that's where I'm at training wise. (Still need to fill you guys in on my personal life) What's you're take on it? Advice welcome 😘
