Healthy Food now!

This past week I have been cooking and eating MUCH better, than the past few weeks before. I have been going to the local farmers market and buying all my fruits and veggies (all organic), and then everything else on my grocery list I buy from Whole Foods Market. Luckily there is one just 10 minutes away! My meals have been very healthy, yummy, and have much less meat! I was a little scared that Thomas wouldn't be to happy because he loooves his meat, but he has really liked them! I made fresh fish tacos with homemade salsa, and he loved those. I also made these black bean wraps, which are basically just mashed up black beans, green peppers, cilantro, and a little bit of mayonnaise and lime juice. You spread it on a whole wheat tortilla with a big piece of lettuce! It was reeeeally good! Last night I made chicken stir-fry with organic chicken and tooons of fresh veggies. I made my own honey soy sauce and served it over whole wheat rice!! It was amazingly good!! And I have been laying off the sugar... the only sugar I had all week was a bag of hand made chocolate raisins. I love eating like this! This is how my mom always cooked for our family when I was growing up, and as soon as I got married and realized that Thomas likes "man food", I slowly started cooking differently. Now that I am having a child, I am going to start cooking like this again. Thomas will thank me when we live to be 100. :)

I want my baby now!!

I can't wait for my baby boy to come!!! He is soooo cute! He gets the hiccups almost every hour, and is kicking me CONSTANTLY. I guess he is going to be just like Thomas when he is born- CRAZY! It's ok though, I need to be more active. Lately, I've been sooo exhausted, I just sleep on the couch, or eat fruit roll ups. I know they are really bad for me and the baby, but they are too incredible to not eat. And the ones I buy are fortified with Vitamin C!!! LOL! SO they are kind of healthy!! I try to eat as many fruits and veggies as I can to make up for it. It just came to me- maybe that is why my baby is so hyper, because I am eating like a pound of sugar each day...
