Spark vs. BabyFit?
Sunday, April 06, 2008
Yesterday, I got really frustrated about STILL being in a plateau. I mean, my weight has not moved in over 3 weeks. I have been bumping up my resistance level on the elliptical, cardio-ing for 30 minutes instead of my usual 20, changed up my strength training to be tougher, and still - nothing. Saturday morning (yesterday), my weight actually went up. Grrrrrrr. So for the hell of it, I took a pregnancy test. And I got the little pink line. That explained a lot.
I went over to the BabyFit.com site, and I'm sorry to say this, but I HATE the meal tracking. I don't like much about the site at all, except it has lots of pregnancy info, has a ticker for my due date, and has other pregnant, preconception, and new moms on it. The user-friendliness is not so good, imo.
So now I'm trying to decide if I can swing everything on 2 sites every day. According to the BabyFit site, I shouldn't gain more than 15 lbs through my whole pregnancy, but the amount of calories they recommend I take in is HUGE. So yeah. Frustrating.
But I'm super excited about my little pink line. I hope it sticks. I'm kinda old to be doing this again, and being overweight doesn't help. I haven't told my kids or any family. We're waiting til it's safe to let other people get excited. If I lost it, I wouldn't want to have to make more than a couple of phone calls.
Cross your fingers for us, please!
