BOY OR GIRL????? The reveal.....

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

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

    Congratulations! Your blog brought back memories. I have two girls and I still remember my pregnancies with nostalgia.
Your doctor is right about the cereal. I had diabetes on my first pregnancy and I had to take measures of my blood sugar three times a day. You can't imagine how high the readings were after morning cereal! So, you'd better keep away from them.
I wish you a happy and healthy rest of your pregnancy. May you welcome your baby girl with all the joy in the world!

    That is so exciting!! Congratulations!! I have a sweet little soon to be three year old girl myself and even though I am married, she is the love of my life! You are soon to find that out too!

Did they offer any suggestions on staying regular while preggers? I know lots of water and keep exercising, that seemed to help.

I wish you all the best!!

    YAY! Congrats! I'm so excited for you. I am having a girl as well. I'm beaming ear to ear. I am glad to hear that your baby is growing well and looks healthy! My doctor hasn't gotten on to me for my weight as of yet but I could see the writing on the wall. I went to the grocery store and stocked up on ALL healthy foods. There are no sweets, fried foods, or pasta in the house. I think I've been doing good so far. Goodluck to you. :)

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 don't like cheese, but give me a bowl of ice-cream and I am there!! I know though today for me it is all in moderation. That is the key.. Take care, Moni emoticon

    Haha I feel ya there with the cheese...I LOVE cheese. It's hard, because it definitely racks up the calories! But don't completely deprive yourself either!

& good job doing the's great to find activity you actually LIKE! I'm glad you're getting back on track. We can do this!

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...

    Sometimes if you are dehydrated you can feel hungry. Try drinking a cold glass of water before and after each meal. Soup is another good way to fill up. Of course, there is always lettuce, carrots, tomatoes and cabbage. Also, it is a good idea to take a multivitamin. Maybe do something nice for yourself to help you relax. Splurge on a massage or get a pedicure.

    I'm not sure where you are at in your weight loss journey but I know my first few weeks were the hardest. After that, my better habits became part of my life and I am down 92 lbs. It is not even hard for me right now because I have developed the discipline. My desire to be slimmer and healthier "outweighs" my desire to eat what I shouldn't. I've been where you are and felt how you feel. It will get better.
Hang in there.

    I agree with ZENBABY16 - I chew a lot of gum and it does help. I also drink water when I'm hungry before I give in to stuffing my face. That doesn't always work, but it does cut down on the amount that I eat. Can you use some of your LA Weight Loss tricks/tools to help? You are a strong woman Mitzi - you've done it before. You can do this! I have faith in you emoticon

    Hey! lol I am glad you see where I am coming from! I honestly wish I had the problem of not eating when I'm stressed. You sound like you're reading my life story. I exercise, but I have a huge appetite, like a guy pretty much. But unfortunately I don't get to hear people write it off as 'Oh, she's just a girl, girls are just like that' Haha! I'm the same way with coffee. It is what gets me through the morning, not for making me more awake, but for suppressing my appetite. If I figure out any tricks, you'll be the first to know :)

I will add you as a friend! Hope to hear from you soon.

    Hey, just wanted to write and let you know that sometimes I go through days like that where I just have this craving to keep eating no matter what I just want to eat! I have found one thing though that usually helps, and as insignificant as it may sound, but I try to chew gum when I get in those moods. Sometimes I have to chew a couple of pieces at a time, but it gets my mouth going to simulate eating and gives me some flavor without the calories. Most sticks of gum have under 5 calories per piece. I would give it a try next time, it really is a life saver for me on some days! The only days that I really have problems is when I am stuck at work and don't have any gum left or I am busy and can't go to the store to get more.

Good luck, you can do it!

Morning workouts ROCK!

Friday, January 14, 2011

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.

    I know the feeling, by the time you get home, its dark, dinner still has to be cooked and cleaned up. Soooo, I am been hitting the exercise video at 4:45am too!

Keep it up, it really does fuel your day!

    I really wish I could get up early to work out but I'm just NOT a morning person. I've tried it & do have more energy during the day but just can't get up in the morning - especially on the mornings I have to go to work. Could it have something to do with my job? emoticon emoticon

Have a great weekend & enjoy the warmer weather. Get out & emoticon emoticon

It's time once again....

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

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!
