We celebrated Mother's Day over the weekend with Chris' mom (who has done nothing but treat me like a part of the family from day one, I feel lucky to have such a great MIL!) in the Adirondacks. Activities included: hanging out and chatting on the porch, bringing Koda to the lake to swim (twice), Chris and Koda going on a small hike, and going out to a lovely dinner (I opted for a garden salad appetizer and roast chicken with veggie dinner... and got vanilla custard for dessert ;) ). It was a great visit!
But we also had a little celebration of our own, because we are excited about being parents this year!
We did a LOT of housework, but also spent some time at our local Tulip Festival (which wasn't as great as I expected, haha) and going out for soft serve ice cream after lunch. I've been dreaming about soft serve for over a month, it was a great itch to scratch.
We had a really healthy dinner to compensate for the treat - baked cod with Brussels sprouts and corn on the cob! It was really summery and delicious. I struggled after a few bites of the sprouts, though, and almost gagged. Not quite ready for all vegetables yet, haha!
Peas and carrots are easy veggies for me to get down, and I am still making smoothies absolutely packed with spinach, so I am getting in those micronutrients.
I'm making better choices, food-wise, every week. I am able to stomach more and more of my old diet as time goes on. I am still relying on some grain products throughout the day when my stomach just can't be settled, but I feel pleased with my food currently!
Finding more of a balance between what my body wants vs. needs and what is good for me!
Hope everyone has a great week - it's quite hot here, upper 80s, but should cool down to low 70s by the end of the week (I wasn't ready for spring-like weather to leave and summer to arrive just yet!).
