Late night randomness

27 weeks has come and lucky me got to do the glucose tolerance test to test me for gestational diabetes......and I failed. The cut off was 130 and my sugar was 140, boo. So now I have to do a 3 hour test (which doesn't sound fun) and pray that it is fine. That requires me to sit at the lab for 3 HOURS and get poked every hour. Nonetheless it was a wake up call to what I'm eating. I admit, I have been eating junk this whole pregnancy. I'm just so lazy and exhausted I cook up whatever is fast, and it's usually not healthy. I have been living off sugary cereals, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and toast with nutella. I have been eating a ton of yogurt, and drinking my weight in water so that's good at least! So regardless of whether I fail the 3 hour or not, I am buckling down and eating better. And I'm hoping to start doing some mild exercise. Maybe just some walking and some weights. Today I ate pretty good. I'll break it down for you...

Breakfast/lunch- whole wheat natural blueberry pancakes with sugar free syrup. These little pancakes are perfect. The servings come individually wrapped, 3 little pancakes in each and it's the perfect portion.
I was on the go all afternoon and needed a snack so while I was at Hastings of all places I bought an individually wrapped skinny cow chocolate wafer snack. It was delicious!
Dinner- It was wonderful.

Sorry for the horrible iphone pic and my yard sale stickers in the background. Chicken/avocado salad. YUM! I found the recipe through another blog, and kind of did my own take on it. It's diced chicken, avocado, and grapes mixed with greek yogurt on top of lettuce. Simple but packed with flavor! I will be re-creating this many more times.

Snack- blueberry yogurt with natural banana nut granola. Also delicious.

I should have been eating healthy these entire 27 weeks, but better late than never, right?!
