PG - 12 Weeks 2 Days - What I'm Wearing Today

I know when I blogged about the maternity clothes I picked up, some people asked for pics. I don't have any yet, but I can explain exactly what I'm wearing today to work. It's really hard to figure out what to wear to work everyday. I picked up a two nice dresses and some tops until I desperately need maternity pants, but that time is pretty much here and I'm trying to hold out as long as I can for budget reasons. This is my last pregnancy, so this stuff will be going to consignment shops when I'm done.

The two dresses I picked up are really for Spring, so today I figured out how to winterize them. Here is the one dress I picked up from Destination Maternity that I'm wearing today. /I'm kind of impressed with what I did to winterize it and feel fashionable at work. I put on an eggplant purple turtleneck (non-maternity), a pair of maternity black patterned tights, black low-heel suede boots, a costume set of three black bead bracelets and my good black pearl earrings. I feel fab! Which is always one of my first steps to having a good day.

Cute dress and your winterization sounds great too.

That sounds cute! Much better than my big cardigan over tight (in the belly) non-maternity pants. I don't know if you already know this but a bella band is crap. I found that out today. Maybe I'm too lumpy and round but all it did was roll up when I sit. I had to button my pants and take it off.

If you want some cheap maternity clothes, I recommend KMART. They have some comfy jeans that aren't expensive. They got me through...

Love the dress... have something very similar from ATLoft. Nice to know when I do get pregnant I'll be able to wear it for at least 4-5mths.

Absolutely agree if you feel fabulous, it will manifest itself in so many other ways throughout your day.

Thanks for sharing,
Anna

Bravo! I stay away from dresses in the winter even when I'm not pregnant. Hate pantyhose/tights. I stuck to pants and now that I'm off work I'm living in yoga pants and jeans when I have to go out. :)

Oooooh! I love the dress! I'm sure you look fab-ooooo-lous! It's tough to drop the big dollars on clothes we're only going to wear for a few months, isn't it?! I'm a sucker for all things Old Navy maternity...I always have good luck with their sizes/fits.

Have a fantastic weekend, hot mama!

Here's Phoebe's 5th Grade School Picture.  I really like her in red or bright colors.  She's definitely becoming quite the little lady.

Improving Habits

I've been a little bad on my diet beta test plan over the weekend, eating bread and drinking wine.  I'm ready for a hard do-over and get myself ready to try my first supported fast. Over the weekend while I was doing some much needed weeding, I was listening to podcasts, especially The Chalene Show, and one in particular about working on your habits.  Right now I have two habits to work on - not drinking a glass of wine in the evening after the kids go to bed and exercising daily.  I'm going to use the replace tactic for the wine and swap it for herbal tea or ginger-turmeric latte.  On the exercise, I need to keep to simple workouts like PiYo on Beachbody On Demand and remind myself how good I feel when I workout.  Today my nutrition was as follows:

Waking - coffee, black
Morning - intermittent fasting, drinking lots of water, until almost 11AM when I had my chocolate vegan Shakeology with unsweetened almond milk and coconut butter
Lunch - salad with chick peas, avocado, …

Diet Beta Test Update

Wow!  I will tell you this is life changing stuff!  I've been wanting to give an update to everyone as I've been having great success experimenting with fixing my metabolism.  Partly why I wanted to try this program, is I already was experimenting with different things like healthy recipes, cutting out dairy and intermittent fasting and was having some results.  What I was really looking for was more guidance on protocols and why one would choose to try different protocols and why.  That is exactly what this program is.  You listen to lots of different audio programs talking about the following ideas:

Healing gut health - this is one of the key ideas that we need to do in order to repair our metabolism and ensure we are receiving full nutrition from the healthy foods we eat.Eliminating inflammatory foods - inflammatory foods do not help your metabolism and gut health.  I've been avoiding dairy, gluten, alcohol, peanuts and nightshade vegetables (tomatoes, egg plant and pep…
