Wow, didn't realize how long it'd been since I'd written anything in here....
Appt was yesterday! I'm 23wks today.
Well, for starters I got fussed at about my weight. So far I've gained 12 lbs and I still have a bit to go... Gotta cut out several things and the candy and soft drinks are the first to go... Actually the first to go are cereals. I didn't say how much I ate BUT I do eat a lot of cereal. I haven't in the last 2 weeks cause of moving BUT before that I was getting up about 2 or 3 am and eating a bowl of cereal about every night. It's soooo easy. Plus raisin bran was the only thing that keeps me half way regular. BUT I'm not allowed ANY cold cereals at all. Not even cheerios or Kix. She said that they are all empty calories and even though they say they are full of vitamins you don't get near the vitamins in them that you get in fresh fruit and veggies. Of course I love fresh fruit but in the middle of night when you wake up starving the LAST thing you want is a banana or an apple. Eck. I want good sugary cereal. lol. But I also don't want to diabetes or to gain so much I'm miserable either. Gotta find me a happy medium.
It's a girl!!! :-D AND a healthy girl at that. Looks like she's got all the correct parts in all the correct places and looking great. She kept opening and closing her mouth like she wanted to talk. That's my girl, ;-) hehe! Of course after seeing that my DH new it was a girl before the doc said so, lol. It was cute. She was moving her arms a lot and her mouth. Chubby little cheeks too. :-) Can't wait to hold her. He positioning was odd and looked uncomfortable. She was breach butt down but her legs were thrown up over her head. lol. He actually feet were above her head. I can't imagine how that feels. She's been moving a lot since yesterday so maybe she found her way out of that position.
We've decided on a name. At least the first name anyway. Rachel Erin
We're not completely set on the middle name but about 90% sure. I do want Rachel no matter what though. :-)
Can't believe I'll be 6 month preggers soon. On one hand it seems like it's taking forever to get to the end but on the other I can't believe it's already been 6 months. :-) I'm so ready to have a baby in my arms though. :-D
Kay, so... I've allowed myself to get back up to 180 which was what I was 6 years ago when I lost 50 lbs but now I'm back where I started... Where did I go wrong? Well... I know where.... Tha friggin fridge.... Some fast food but mostly my passionate relationship with cheese. If somehow cheese could get a job, I would marry it. If Nathan tasted like cheese then I would never let him leave the house! Oh, so you get my drift.... I like cheese. Well, not only is cheese very fatty, it's also high in sodium. Like the fat content by itself wasn't enough to give me high blood pressure.
Sooo.... Here's what I did... I went out and bought the Wii Fitness set board and game set and all. Actually got a VERY good price cause it was used. I also bought another game Wii Active. I like the Wii Active so far better because I can actually get the workout done faster. The Wii Fitness just takes soooo long between exercises. Although I like the set up and body testing and all. And the yoga part is really nice to help me with balance. All in all I'm making one hell of an effort to step it up. I've actually laid off the cheese for the last couple of days. I'm planning on limiting my cheese intake from here on out. Our relationship has been a one way street for a while and I'm heading on to.. smaller... better things. hehe.
Been a rough summer with all that heat. When it's this hot I want to stay in the air condition but it's getting cooler which means I need to be more active. :-)
Sooooo... Out with t he fat and in with the skinny!
I just wanna say it's a good dang thing I'm exercising. If not I would have gained tons of weight I'm sure...
I exercise a lot. At least burning 500+ cals a day which mean that I HAVE to be taking in 2500 calories a day. At least most days anyway... Geeeezzzz. I need to stop eating... I just want to eat all the time. Even healthy stuff... I just crave food. Eating extra protein, fiber or things like that that people say supposed to make you feel full and all that but it doesn't stop you from WANTING to eat whether you're full or not. The only thing I've found that makes me not want to eat is drinking lots of coffee or energy drinks or taking weight loss supplements like Ripped fuel or Xenadrine. Basically anything with lots of caffeine. But caffeine from a diet coke doesn't get it. I'm not even sure if it's just the caffeine because I can drink 2 diet cokes which should be about equivalent to one cup of coffee and I don't get NEAR the same effect from the coke.
I take extra B vits cause that supposed to help with energy but it still doesn't help me not want food. It seriously gets to the point that I want to cry if I keep myself from eating. It's basically the same thing that happened after I quit smoking. Although unfortunately I still battle the urge to smoke even after a year and a half. :-(
I appreciate any suggestions but I feel I'm just going to have to cry it out and just do it. I've really tried everything I know of to do to help with this. I do feel for people who are like this but don't workout or don't want to workout like I do because I KNOW that it would be even HARDER to lose weight if I didn't workout like I do...
I love to sleep in but the past 2 days I've gotten up 45 min before I normally do to workout. I need a change in routine because I'm always tired and not wanting to workout in the evenings so I figured I'd try another time. Why not? It can't hurt...
So... I did just that and I've felt SOOOOO much better. I have more energy during the day and not sleepy all day like I used to be. It's hard to not get sleepy and be tired when you have a job sitting and staring at a screen all day. I will continue to do these morning workouts during the week and hopefully it will continue to make me feel better. :-)
I'm also going to try to get another quick workout sometimes when I get home.
Well... I blew it for Christmas and the end of the year. I've gained all my weight back and then some. I've been sick, lost a family member and took care of a sick hubby all in the last 2 weeks or so.
I'm ready to get back on the band wagon and start this new year out right!
I started my 30 day shred today and will bounce back between it and some other vids since I get bored with one vid everyday. I have to make every day count since I'm trying to get pregnant and I was NOT wanting to be this size when it happened. I plan on eating mostly veggies and drinking LOTS AND LOTS of water!
