Scary Blood Test! | What I Ate Wednesday

The first of these photos was taken in London near our doctor's office...that is not my front door, haha! Although I wish it was - it's so pretty! This particular Wednesday was a very busy one, in fact it almost broke my pregnant a*s (lol). First we had our OB appointment in central which took all morning and then I brought Emilia to the hospital for a blood test in the later afternoon. After that it was date night and I was so shattered I almost called it off but I do think one date night a week is I powered through and just made sure I was in bed by 9pm! 

Part of the reason why I'm so exhausted lately (aside from the obvious, being 8 months pregnant!) is because I have been packing so much more into my day as I now wake up half an hour earlier to work out. I've been doing this five days a week for the past three weeks now and it has been working really well for me however it does mean that I had to modify my bedtime. Whereas I used to go to bed around 10pm I now go an hour earlier, and could probably go even earlier if I put my mind to it. Working out at 6am won't last forever because I know the new baby will take that freedom away from me but I'm enjoying it while it lasts and it has really helped make me more productive during the day. Hopefully when he gets into a bit more of a routine after the crazy newborn stage I can go back to this!

  1. Hello all the way from Virginia! I just wanted to say that your makeup has been absolutely gorgeous lately! I mean, you’re always beautiful but, the bare minerals really looks great on you!
    Have a great day pretty mama!
    You’ve inspired me to give it another try 😊

    1. Aww, thank you so much! I love BM because it doesn't feel like a mask on my face & it's good for my skin too :) xxx

  2. Around the time you start working out again during your pregnancy, I started trying to workout to lose some weight. I'd love to start getting my workout out of the way! Nothing stopping me but the difficulty I have going to bed early. Have any tips on how to turn your brain off so early in the night?

    1. Well done for starting to work out! <3 The health benefits are amazing, regardless of any weight loss you might experience! :) Honestly since shifting my routine a bit I just naturally get really tired earlier on so it hasn't been difficult to switch off! As long as I'm waking that early my body starts to need the extra hour of sleep! xxx

  3. Your dinner looked so SO delicious and I've loved your cold shoulder top! :)

    1. Aww, thank you! :) I am a big seafood fan! xxx

  4. Anna, something I wanted to let you know.. In some videos you talk about how much people like to see these WIAW's and you don't know actually why.. Because they seem boring to you (which is a good thing, since you've recovered)
    Well, I just wanted to share my reason for watching them.. I've struggled with the same eating disorder like you for about a decade, I just turned 28. I could not cope with the loss of my older brother (he died much too young) I was lost and tried to control the one thing I could.. Food and my body. I really hated myself. But that's not what I wanted to say, because: I've recovered (actually around the same time as you have) with the help of a psychologist and my husband (he's been there, always!) Everything is going good, but for me seeing these WIAW's reminds me to keep going on. They motivate me to still enjoy food, still eat healthy, still eat enough, ... So I just wanted to let you know, even tough they might seem very boring, your WIAW's are meaningful to me.

    1. Aww, that is amazing thank you so much for sharing that with me! <3 And congratulations on your recovery! xxx <3

  5. I love you so much Anna! ♥♥♥
