Delicious Healthy Snack: Banana Sushi Rolls

Snooki - Healthy Snack Banana Sushi Rolls

So I came across this adorable snack recipe online and had to try it out! Um…AMAZING and adorable! It’s so simple and the best snack for your little one, or for your tummy!!

Directions:
-Simply cut up bananas into slices
-Add almond butter (or peanut butter) to act as the “glue”
-Add tiny thin slices of wheat bread to go around the banana

And WHALA! You have your banana roll! Also if you want to get decorative and add a little more flavor, drizzle honey on top!

Enjoy kiddos! XOXOX

My Second Pregnancy…Here We Go Again!!!!!

Snooki - Mommy Pillow Lorenzo

I am absolutely over the moon in love with my son and i can’t wait to have that feeling again with my new baby! When I found out i was pregnant i kind of freaked out….a lot, because there is so much i have going on this year with planning my wedding, moving into my dream house, lorenzo’s 2nd birthday, and on top of that having my second baby! Talk about a busy schedule! But everything is meant to be and everything always works out and I honestly couldn’t be happier! I’ve also always wanted to be pregnant the same time as Jenni (JWOWW) and now we can be pregnant besties! Even though she is a few months ahead of me, enduring this journey with my best friend is going to be pretty amazing!! Lorenzo is so excited to have a sibling, and jionni and I are so exciting to be expanding our family! It’s not gonna be an easy ride, but we are ready for it! Bring it on busiest year of my life!!!! I’m as ready as i’ll ever be to take on my second pregnancy, experience the crazy roller coaster ride again, but this time i’ve decided to have a FIT PREGNANCY. I’ve already been working out everyday and not indulging on every single craving that i have and i feel so much happier and full of energy unlike my first pregnancy. I can’t wait to experience this pregnancy differently and being fit and active will hopefully help me in labor this time. I don’t want to be in labor for 27 hours again!

Thank you all for your amazing comments & support! We are all so excited and I can’t wait to share another pregnancy journey with you! XOXOX Stay tuned! -Nicole <3

Why Hello Second Trimester…

Snooki - Jionni LaValle

YAY so excited to be entering in my second trimester. My favorite trimester, because i always feel so much better. The tiredness and crankiness subsides and I can actually function with a smile again. Unlike my first pregnancy, I am feeling awesome. I think it has a lot to do with sticking to my daily routines, which is not being lazy, eating healthy and still working out. ( Cant wait for you guys to see my Pregnancy Work out videos!) I’m so excited because i still have my muscles, i still feel strong and I don’t feel like a hippo yet. My first pregnancy i felt like a hippo the 2nd month because i was eating everything i wanted and didn’t lift a finger to attempt any sort of exercise. I definitely recommend my mamas to try to be active during their pregnancy, because being both inactive and active during pregnancy, i vote for this one.

So excited to have my energy back and give Jionni a break. I have been such a raging lunatic to him, he deserves another trophy for my mood swings. But babe, don’t worry, i feel great now & i won’t be such a pain in the ass, diva pregnant woman.

My Second Pregnancy Journey…

I love that I have my own blog and can say everything that I want to say and sharing everything with you guys!!

Thank you so much for all the positive feedback about my pregnancy. We got a lot going on this year with moving into our house, having the baby and then getting married. I’m entering the second trimister and my baby is healthy and I’m all good… though my first trimester brought back memories of my last pregnancy!!!

Let’s talk cravings. Love strawberries and salt and vinegar chips right now. But the one thing I’m going to change about this pregnancy is that I am going to stay active and keep working out because I’m getting married soon after I have my second baby. My lifestyle right now is very healthy so I’m going to continue with that while I’m pregnant. I am going to be working out safely and share my workouts with you on my blog!

Watch the video to hear all the updates!!!

Thank you to all of you for being so sweet and kind!!! Love ya!!!

xoxo,

BREAKING NEWS: You Can Still Workout While Pregnant

Snooki - Working out during first trimester with second pregnancy

So happy to let everyone in on our exciting news! And news flash: you can still work out while pregnant! The first trimester, woman are allowed to do everything they’ve been doing in the gym. So hell yea I’ve been getting my last rounds of flipping tires and hardcore weight training. Now that the second trimester has started, YOU CAN STILL WORK OUT. Just have to change your routine a little bit to be safe for you and your child. Thanks to my fabulous trainer Anthony Michael he has been training me safely. Just because I’m pregnant doesn’t mean I’m going to lose all this muscle I’ve worked hard for. Unlike my last pregnancy I’m going to be active, workout and be happy! I’m excited to see if working out really helps with labor, because I refuse to be in labor again for 27 hours! Talk about suspense. I also want to be in some what good shape for my wedding. Having my second child and getting married are very close to each other, so no time to be lazy! I’ve got a lot coming up this year and I want to look and feel my best! So bring it on pregnancy, I’m ready for you this time!
