185.5 again today. The baby slept all night! Well, until about 5:30, but that's my usual wakeup time anyway. I feel so refreshed, and I realized I probably haven't slept 8 hours at a stretch since sometime in the 2nd trimester.
Breakfast: coffee with whole milk, scrambled eggs, bacon
Lunch: quick stir fry with sea spaghetti on the side
Barn time this afternoon!

While I suck at updating the journal, we've actually been staying on track with food! So yay for that, and it's time to add in exercise. I'm setting myself a challenge to do something active every day. Yesterday I went riding, then came home and worked on the garden. Today - we'll see!
I've been keeping up pretty well with staying active. Husband and I have been biking with the little one in a trailer, now that he's finally big enough. I make it to the barn 2-4 days each week, and I've been doing exercise videos on days that I can't get out of the house, even if it's just 10-15min.
My vegetable crate arrived today - butter lettuce, green onions, kale, cauliflower, tomatoes, bell peppers, broccoli, apples, cucumbers, snow peas, strawberries, raw honey, milk, and handmade smoked mozzarella. I need to do some menu planning and hit up the butcher for meat and the grocery store for a few things to fill it out.
Breakfast - Coffee with milk, kale sauteed in butter, 3 eggs, slice of smoked mozzarella.
Lunch - Leftover coconut chicken curry with cauliflower rice
Snack - Latte (whole milk, no sugar or flavoring)
Dinner - Tarragon Chicken with mushrooms & greens, broccoli
Exercise - Barn time! Rode ~20min, W/T/C

Exercise - Riding lesson canceled due to thunderstorms. Need to dig out a video workout.
I've started using "Lose It!" to track what I'm eating and give me a realistic view of how my meals play out. For some reason, knowing that I'll have to input everything I eat makes me pay more attention. I also love that I can use it on my phone, so I don't have to wait until I get home to put it in.

Found out yesterday that I'm pregnant! Slightly earlier than expected - last month we stopped actively avoiding, but hadn't started actively trying - and there ya go. I shouldn't be too surprised. I carried my son to term with an IUD in, so I doubt I have any fertility problems. I'm only 5 weeks in, so we're not getting too excited yet. We'll consider it real around 8-10 weeks. This is definitely making me more determined to eat well and keep exercising though!
Breakfast - Coffee and milk, chicken and apple sausage, 2 eggs, kale, salsa
