Yesterday & today
I had a day of tests yesterday, so I got NOTHING done on Spark. All the tests were routine, and mostly all pregnancy related, but it was a very long day and by the time I got home i was EXHAUSTED. I went to bed at 7 and I didn't get up except... Read more
Well, today didn't go so great. I've had a rough day. My seizure meds were upped lately because I'm entering the third trimester. This has led to an increase in the side effects. The only way I know to mitigate those is an increase in the so... Read more
Not sure what to blog about today....
So this is gonna be a bit random. I've been sleeping more than usual, which is making the exercise a little less than happening; I think I'll have to step it up this week. Which mostly means lots more walking and yoga; I'm having trouble with ... Read more
I've got the munchies and I can't turn it off!
I'm near the top of my calories, I've got the munchies. I'm not actually hungry but I can't stop being munchy. GRR! I don't know what to do. I don't think baby is actually hungry, but I don't know. I can't tell. I want chocolate chip cook... Read more
SOOO glad it's Friday!
I've been going through some rough stuff lately, and I'm just glad the week is over. I'm really looking forward to tonight (date night) with hubby, and just resting and relaxing for the weekend. I seriously need to just unwind and relax. Extr... Read more
Today did NOT go well.
Where do I start. Emotionally it was a lousy day, and in turn, my eating was not so great. :( I woke up to my mom being snarky on an email. That started it. So I went to Starbucks to cheer myself up and work. The working happened, the cheer... Read more
Well, last evening I had a seizure, (yes I'm fine now, and so is the Energy Plug) so I spent today feeling a little wonky and tired.
Irregardless, I had a great time with an old friend who was in from out of town, and got some light exer... Read more
Last blog of the year!
Happy New Years! I did really well this year on the fitness front - I set my yearly goal last New Years at 17,177 (Don't remember how I got that # now!) and I blew it out of the water! I ended up with 18,405 minutes. I'm Very proud of that nu... Read more
Here are my revised goals for 2013 as they relate to Sparkpeople. I also fleshed out some more of the goals that my husband and I have set for ourselves for the year, but those I won't post. The goals for this year are a bit more specific than... Read more
Connecting the dots...another NSF :)
Hubby and I were talking today, about how he liked how I was looking now, while pregnant, ect. I thanked Chris for a particular conversation we'd had shortly before I decided I wanted to get healthy & joined Spark. You see, originally my main ... Read more
How do you find balance?
I have a question for everyone.
How do you find a balance between being active, and listening to your body (especially when pregnant) about when to take rest days or slow down?
I'm approaching my third trimester (I'm 26 weeks along) a... Read more
Back on Track, and Remembering
I did a great job today. I got my calories on track, and I ate healthy. I FORGOT how much food I could actually eat when I ate well! LOL :) I didn't overdo the sugar, (tho I was just a touch high in the fat department)
I've had a really h... Read more
Did pretty good today!
I'm a little over my calories today, but I didn't do too bad. I was mostly over on my drinks, not the food! I even got some exercise in, in small increments. I was pretty pleased with myself.
I had a good time with my family. I don't hav... Read more
Well, yesterday was a mess. I KNOW I had too much sugar. :( I did do better than in other years still, so that's something. I think I did reasonably on food itself (I didn't track) and I didn't get my water. I got a little bit of yoga in,... Read more
