I am pregnant but...
Sunday, April 01, 2012
I am pregnant but that shouldn't mean that I can/should eat what ever I want. I just put what I ate for breakfast into the calorie counter and I was shocked!!! I ate almost my entire daily limit in one meal, wow... I really had no idea!
I knew I had been gaining more weight than I would have liked to while enjoying my first pregnancy, but I guess I have just been in denial that it wasn't my food choices or lack of exercise. This last week I have been updating my SP so I can get back into the mind set of losing the baby weight after he comes, but I really need to focus on the present too.
I have only gained about 18 lbs so far & I am 26 weeks, but I still have several weeks to go. When I weighed myself this morning I realised how much I've been in denial about how close the scale is to 300 lbs... the one number I never, ever thought I would see. I'm worried I will cross that 300 lb marker & there will be no return...ugh.
So for this week I'm really going to work on making healthier choices & exercising more. I really need to cut out all of the sweets & extra sugar I have been consuming & eat more fresh fruits, veggies & lean protein. I feel like I've just been enjoying a carb feast for the past 3 months. I love to walk or do yoga too so I am going to concentrate on doing one of these once per day... I just don't want to get so far off in my goals that it will be miserable to restart again after baby.
