Weekly update – week 18

I’m 18 weeks pregnant and everyone has been fussing at me to get more than 5 hours of sleep 😂😂. So I have but it’s cut into my blog time.

As a quick update – I feel awesome and cute. I only got dressed 2x this week but that’s ok 😂. I also organized under the sink in the bathroom in my nesting escapades.

Started my next fitness program and I’m feeling great. This week was only 15 minutes – next week goes to 25.

Anywho, a real post will come soon but for now – Here’s some pics of my pregnancy flyness over the past couple weeks.

17/18 weeks – Nesting with Tarra

This past week in Nesting with Tarra I did a few things. First, I threw out all of our towels and got all new spa grade fluffy white towels.

It was a need.

Then we tackled the kids bathroom. This was another room that like our laundry room, was white. Like only primer from the time it was built in 2006. When we were visiting a friends new house about a month ago they had a blue bathroom and LB asked for one for his birthday. His wish is my Nesting command.

I also had Brian frame out the mirror and put up a new light fixture. I added some hardware to the vanity (leftover from another project) and added a towel organizer for his new blue towels he had. I also got a new rug from home goods.

Framing the mirror was hell. Only because we had an old fancy track light from our old house we tried to use, but it was missing the back plate and … listen it’s a long story but it just wasn’t worth the hassle lol. So we got a new one.

Other than that, Brian pried odd the mirror boarded around 3/4 of the mirror (glued onto the mirror by builders) and glued the boards directly to the mirror. The top board is nailed into the wall. That board actually somehowwww got cut short. Nothing that couldn’t be fixed by cutting a small piece and gluing/caulking into place. After painting you can’t tell.

Fitness plans! 17 weeks

Yal. I’m getting big – so people have been asking me about my next fitness plans.

Honestly I still feel great – I haven’t started to feel off balance yet. Other than being sleepy I don’t feel much different. So my plans haven’t changed!

On 10/22 I’m starting a newly revamped program called Shift Shop with some of my new challengers :). We are starting out with a prep week and then going into the program.

What is SHIFT SHOP?
SHIFT SHOP is Chris Downing’s breakthrough conditioning program that has helped thousands of people of all fitness levels see maximum results in minimal time. The program starts you off slow, alternating between cardio and strength workouts-then gradually increases the intensity week by week.

Starting Oct. 22, the SHIFT SHOP will incorporate the Proving Grounds – two new workouts that score your performance against the clock with a series of challenges that test your speed and strength. You’ll swap out one Speed workout and one Strength workout for Proving Grounds workouts every week.

Workouts are from 15 – 45 minutes in length and a modifier is ready.

Not sure it’s for you? Try a free sample workout here!

Contact me to get everything you need to get started on 10/22! There are currently 4 spots available for this group.

Weekend Recap!

Guys, I had the most fabulous weekend! However, I am ready to never travel again LOL! It was my best friend of 17 years WEDDING! at VA beach. and I was her matron of honor 🙂

We left Thursday evening and headed down to Charleston, WV to stay with my parents. LB of course always has a blast being spoiled by them. The next morning we got up at 6 AM to head to the beach. We made it down around 2 PM to our air BNB – which was fabulous. The only issue was noise traveled easily from the upstairs unit – but I think we are just spoiled used to single family home living.

Anywho, after a shower and some rest we headed over to the rehearsal at 4 PM at the beautiful home the wedding was at. LB and Brian played in the sand/ocean until after the rehearsal, then we went inside and ate. Afterwards we went home, I washed and blow dried my hair and went to sleep – I was exhausted lol. I was up at 7 the next morning to get dressed and ready to take my best friend out to get our nails done. Then we went to the mall to eat and then get make up done and buy some last minute things. Brian was the real MVP here for keeping LB entertained basically ALL WEEKEND :).

Guys she looked AMAZING.

Absolutely dazzling. We were out long enough to make everyone nervous (got back to the house around 2 PM and the wedding was at 4). but I think she was glad to be away from the stress of setup.

It felt like old times, we were carefree and living life.

Anywho, wedding was beautiful. We had a great time and drove back all day Sunday.

This was one of the most fun, refreshing weekends ever.

Favorite Snacks :)

I’m basically a snack machine lately. I feel like all I do is eat! So I figured the least I could do was let yal know some of my favorite healthy snacks.

Honey Roasted Almonds. Omg I’ve been tearing these UP.

 

ants on a log

Ants on a log. Only way I got my veggies in AT ALL when I was nauseous.

shakeology

Of course my shakeology. In all of it’s variations. My favorite thing everrrrr because my OB has approved it AND let me know I don’t have to take nasty prenatals :).

 

cheese its

I’m all about some cheese its lately. I know they aren’t healthy – but they kept my nausea down early on.

I could go on but it’s time for me to get LB from preschool.

What have you been snacking on?

16 weeks in “Nesting with Tarra”

My plans for laundry beautification were interrupted last week because it was fall break. No preschool so no alone time.

To watch this story instead of read – watch these snippets from my Instagram story (follow me @Tarra.Yvette)

Anywho – I decided to work on it over the weekend when Brian could entertain LB and I could have my sister help with paint.

First things first, I had to pick a paint color. Which was HARD. I wanted to go with a blue color but honestly we have so much blue in our house. And it’s a small space so I thought I could get a little wild and go with a purple tint.

I planned on painting a billion swatches before picking but I walked Into Lowe’s and this color called my name

Updated maternity fashion

Thought I’d post some more outfits!

Tried to wear maternity jeans this week and they kept sagging so it’s not time yet.

Weather has been super up and down but I’m enjoying dressing my little bump.

It’s fall break so no preschool (my usual blog time) so sorry for being MIA! More soon.
