It feels like I’ve been gone for such a long time, but we’ve really only been on vacation for about a week. That is truly the best type of vacation! I’m proud of myself for staying offline for the most part, minus necessary Instagramming;-) I feel completely re-energized and ready to get back at full force this week. It doesn’t hurt that it’s actually a short week anyway!
Other than busting out many, many recipes in the kitchen this week, I have my big glucose screening test (the first one) on Thursday. I’m actually pretty nervous about that… Right before I found out I was pregnant, my then doctor told me that I had PCOS. It’s a long story but I’m not actually convinced that was the case and since I took a positive pregnancy test seven days later, there wasn’t really an opportunity to explore that. I’ve been taking something that is supposed to reduce my chance of having insulin issues, but I’m still anxious about getting back the test results. A healthy baby is my top priority, so if I need to cut back on the sweets, I obviously will, but that doesn’t mean that it will be easy!
Now for this week’s updates:
Most popular recipe/blog post: Super Creamy No-Churn Cookie Butter Ice Cream
Five favorite things I pinned all week:
Frosting Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies from Cookies and Cups
Marshmallow & Peanut Butter Cookie Cobbler from Coordinately Yours
Cinnamon Whole Grain Power Pancakes from Pinch of Yum
Caramelized Cheetos (no joke!) from The Spiffy Cookie
Alice Medrich’s Guide to Freezing Baked Goods (very useful!) from Food 52
I hope that you are all having a wonderful weekend!
*fingers crossed that the glucose test goes well*!!!
Good luck! Just don’t eat anything too carby or too late the night before and drink lots of water. You will do great!!
Belated thanks, Rachel!!
I guess I’m so late in reading this that the glucose test is today! Good luck!!
