Lunch & Learn

July 23, 2012


Good afternoon friends!! I survived another Pump Challenge class this morning. It felt good to be back in the gym – it had been a week! I’m doing lots of walking these days, which just makes me happiest. The good thing is walking with a baby is probably the easiest form of exercise as well! I’m glad to have kept up Pump and pre-natal yoga though too – both I see as being very important!


I made a No Bull Burger for lunch – on Dakota bread – stacked up with nutrition!


Ketchup + mustard, tomato, avocado and some locally made cheese


Chips on the side (I ate twice this many while my burger was cooking!)


And two plums for dessert


Drink fav-or-eeet!



I took my lunch downstairs and watched this DVD I’ve had from Netflix for about 2 months now. It seemed appropriate given today’s BERF post! It was actually very similar to my breastfeeding class and was good visually to see some more nursing in action.


I have a few hours to work before our doctor’s appt – see ya!

I wish I had known about the No Bull Burgers while I was down there, so I could’ve grabbed one to try. They look so grainy, which is my favorite kind of veg burg.

So glad you’re back to bodypump! I’m sure the girls (and Scott) are happy to see you back. 😉

I’m glad I’m not the only one who holds on to netflix videos for months at a time!

Avocado slices are a burger essential- great lunch!

I’m glad you’ve kept up your workouts in a way that works for you! I know that feels great! The biggest thing that worked for me with breastfeeding was to be committed. It is definitely not the easiest thing in the world to begin with, but it your milk comes in and things function well, the commitment will totally be worth it in the end. Best cuddles ever too!

YAY for hitting the weights :) It is SO healthy for you and the baby! Wahoo!

That lunch looks so delicious.

I have been diggin a bean burger from Jessica @ How Sweet Eats- so delicious! I can’t get enough of them when they are topped with fresh avocado/lime! …..I’ll have to look into that breastfeeding video since I can’t attend a class for myself! Thanks for the info!


9 Rachel July 23, 2012 at 1:36 pm

I’ve never seen plums like that before!


10 Vivi @My.Beautiful.Air July 23, 2012 at 1:37 pm

those golden plums look so enticing !


11 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat July 23, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Sounds like an amusing vid! I absolutely love the small yellow plums right now. I just polished off a basket of local ones and they were so deliciously juicy. Tart skin, sweet on the inside, just the way I like ’em!


12 Andrea July 23, 2012 at 1:46 pm

That lunch looks delicious! What kind of lemonade do you buy?


13 KathEats July 23, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Santa Cruz Organic


14 Kimberly July 23, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Oh! You just reminded me that I forgot to pick up veggie burgers at the store! I wanted to eat them for lunch this week. :)


15 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles July 23, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Oh those yellow plums look like they were just plucked from the tree! So goood!


16 Chelsea @ Chelsea's Lovelys July 23, 2012 at 2:01 pm

This burger looks delicious! I’m loving all the yummy toppings and chips on the side! :)


17 Lydia @HappyHealthyConfident July 23, 2012 at 2:02 pm

Love the ‘No Bull burger’ recipe!


18 Brie July 23, 2012 at 2:19 pm

Too funny–walking is one of the HARDEST forms of prenatal exercise for me! The repetitive motion makes my round ligaments and feet cramp up terribly. I do much better with CrossFit, because I’m never in the same position for very long. It stinks because we have a treadmill in our nice cool basement. Just goes to show you how different everyone is!


19 KathEats July 23, 2012 at 2:22 pm

And there is no way on earth I could do cross fit :)


20 Megan @ The I Do Diaries July 23, 2012 at 2:25 pm

That burger looks delicious-all the best toppings!


21 Angel7 July 23, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Thanks for reminding me… I need to buy some avocado!


22 Catalina @ Cake with Love July 23, 2012 at 3:10 pm

Love the yellow plums, but I can’t find any at the supermarket, I hope to see some at the Farmer’s Market on Wednesday!


23 Lexi @ You, Me, & A World to See July 23, 2012 at 3:14 pm

Love the little stacks of cheese on that No Bull–like a cheesy log cabin :)


24 Averie @ Averie Cooks July 23, 2012 at 3:31 pm

locally made cheese = sounds great!

one thing about nursing, forgot to mention this in your berf post and not sure if you mentioned it or not, but find out when your hospital (or local la leche league chapter or similar) is having weekly breastfeeding support group meetings – being with other women who are all going thru the same things, and seeing more experienced women, is so incredibly helpful.


25 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats July 23, 2012 at 3:44 pm

that sandwich looks amazing!!! And walking is the best form of exercise when you need something easy, you just need yourself and some good shoes! And you don’t get sweaty like you do running! Haha well, depending on the heat.


26 Lisa July 23, 2012 at 3:48 pm

Hmm. Avocado on a veggie burger- will have to try it!


27 Samantha July 23, 2012 at 4:09 pm

Man oh man I am excited for you guys!


28 Amanda @flecksofgreen July 23, 2012 at 4:40 pm

The No Bull Burgers look so great! I don’t think they sell them in or near Delaware–I think I’ve looked everywhere!


29 Jessica @ New Girl, New City July 23, 2012 at 5:05 pm

That burger looks AMazing! I so want to try No Bull Burgers.


30 Megan @ Megan's Munchies July 23, 2012 at 6:01 pm

Who knew videos like that existed?!


31 Julia H. @ Going Gulia July 23, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Netflix never ceases to amuse me with how random its DVDs are, haha.


32 Nicole July 23, 2012 at 11:15 pm

I just attended my first pump class tonight. Great workout…I’m thinkin’ I’ll be sore tomorrow. I do love a good muscle sore though!


33 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count July 24, 2012 at 5:51 am

Delicious looking lunch. Wish No Bull Burgers were available in my area…I would buy them!


34 Tara July 24, 2012 at 6:24 am

I just received that same DVD last week. Funny!


35 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More July 24, 2012 at 9:10 pm

Oh man! How bad is it that all I want now is avocado?! ha! 😉
