White Chocolate Protein Balls

 

**Note: It has come to my attention that my comment system has been down lately. We think we have worked it out. So now your comments won’t secretly disappear! Or be moderated because you use the word “shoes”… It was that dumb. Hopefully we got it figured out! Comment away! Please and thank you!

It has been a pretty rainy two days here, and being the summer girl I usually am, this rain has been quite welcome for this prego momma!

So here is a recipe for a healthy treat on a rainy day.

It was actually Baylees idea to make these today. She loves to help me in the kitchen and her never ending whine to make “ball cookies” today was never ending.. how could I really say no?

WORKOUT:

This morning I headed to GPP to get the workout done before I coached. This workout was rough!

I have been loving the shaping/lifting part of the workouts lately and then a quick sweat fest to finish it up. The timed part of the workout took me just over 13 minutes. Being pregnant I try not to pay too much attention to the clock because I have the tendency to turn into a competitive thing if I let it.  I listen to my body and most importantly the baby. The hardest part of this workout was the burpees.. I don’t think I have ever missed doing a REAL burpee so much in my life as I have lately. Modifying a burpee for this belly has turned into a lot of strict pushups! You just can’t fall to the floor anymore.. ha! I even did double unders today! I wore my running belt to help support a bit and I was proud to get through those comfortably. My longest string was 17.. kind of rusty.. I haven’t done DU for a LONG time so it was fun to pull out my rope and tackle them again.

As part of the 21 day challenge I had a few more things to finish up and by the end I was a hot pregnant mess.

LUNCH:

I snagged a rostierre chicken from costco this morning and made my lunch wrap out of it.

Great idea if you ask me.

I will probably eat a wrap every day of my third trimester. They have been my go to as of lately and not sure they will be beat.

This wrap I had chicken, cucumber, hummus, onion and tomato.

Subway has nothing on me.

Ps. I think subway is disgusting.. They use to be good but I had a sandwich last weekend on our little road trip to Bear Lake and it was just BAD. The bread, the meat, the “avocado” ugh.

What was your lunch today?

What is your favorite Sandwich?
