Down then Up

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

I have to admit, I was a little disheartened yesterday when I weighed in. I had gained a pound from last week. ALTHOUGH, it shouldn't surprise me (I was busy with the July 4th holiday) emoticon . Not to mention, I was around unhealthier foods, even though I tried to limit my portions. It never ceases to amaze me how MANY calories can be in such a SMALL amount of food!

Therefore, I'm trying to get back on track this week. Yesterday I was quite proud of my calorie intake and the amount of exercise I did. It was my 1st time getting back on the elliptical (or doing any sort of REALLY physical activity emoticon ) since my D&C procedure a few weeks ago due to my miscarriage.

I desperately desperately want to lose this extra weight (for a future baby). Having had a miscarriage during my 1st pregnancy has also made me leary emoticon . I'm trying to do anything and everything I can to give my next pregnancy the best shot possible. (Granted the miscarriage before wasn't caused by anything I did- or didn't do-, but still, I want to make my body as healthy of an environment for a baby to grow). Almost every time I pick my food choices I think to myself (would this be good for a baby?)... and that curbs me. It's funny how I will willingly eat junk and not exercise if it is my own well-being, but if you place a baby into the equation my choices radically change. emoticon

    That is absolutely true! When you have a child every choice you make is revolved around them.
    If that is what is working for you, stick to it! Your future baby is worth it!
