Home sweet home!
I spent last week in Chicago, attending a Diabetes Educator Review Course. I plan on taking the Certified Diabetes Educator examination in December, and boyyyy…. do I have a lot of studying to do between now and then. I’m a bit overwhelmed and wonder if this ginormous task was such a great idea to take on while pregnant. eeeek.
While I was visiting the Chicago area, it was the perfect time to visit my bff, Kara Mae. Kara and her husband, Jon, live in DeKalb, IL (about an hour from Chicago). We had an awesome few days together, makes me wish we still lived in the same city. 🙁
While I learned a lot at the conference and had tons of fun with Kara… I missed Darrin terribly. I think my pregnancy hormones are flowing full-throttle. I’m so happy to be back in my comfy bed, with my husband by my side. awww.
Eating healthy and keeping up with your exercise routine can be pretty tricky while traveling.
The key is having a game plan.
I packed some healthy road snacks, so I didn’t have to stop on the drive up (KIND bars, Lara Bars, nuts, fruit, and popcorn). I also packed Greek yogurt to enjoy for breakfast daily. Cheese sticks and cucumber & dip made great snacks to enjoy on my conference breaks.
Tips for healthy eating while traveling:
I packed my mat for some hotel room yoga, and brought my sneakers for a walk/run around Kara’s neighborhood.
