Day 1 - All over again, w/ a bun in the oven.

Thursday, June 14, 2012

So... I took a few days off after finding out I was pregnant. I celebrated a little
bit with some junk food. Picked up about 2 lbs just for fun to celebrate. I was so stunnedby the news, that I figured why not have a milk shake and a butter finger. I did get a piece of fried chicken too! Since, I've been eating so healthy lately.... it all tasted kind of gross to me, so it was definitely a waste of calories.
So, I've got back into the groove of things as of today. I had 2 donut holes because my head was slightly swimming though. I even had a little bit of a soda and it didn't go over too well on on my taste buds. So everything else is in line with my healthy way of life..... I've accounted for everything I have had and will have on today.

I am having a hard time with adding more food to my dietary though. I know I am suppose to add at least 300-500 more calories to my caloric intake, but I am really not hungry. Not sure what to do about that, but we'll work it out somehow even if it's adding a bowl of cereal or something.
ANY SUGGESTIONS? I don't want to starve my little precious one....

Well, I plan to get a 30 min walk in ontoday. I even found out that I can continue in my turbojam, but LOW and I do mean LOW impact. I just want to work on my arms so they won't be as jiggly as J-E-L-L-O.... hahaha

Well that's keep this party rolling... I have my !st Doctor's appt on 07/03, so I'll keep you posted on our lil peanut..... Love you all

    Don't worry about forcing extra calories right now... When I was pregnant, I had absolutely HORRENDOUS morning/noon/night sickness. We're talking, "wake up at 2am to throw up" sickness! When I was 4 months pregnant, I was 10 lbs LESS than when I'd gotten pregnant, and a bit concerned. The doctor laughed at me and said "Mama, the baby is fine, growing and thriving. YOU lost some weight!" Considering I wasn't even remotely overweight when I got pregnant, I decided to just relax and let the baby keep growing emoticon

    I was losing weight when I got an oh what I'm pregnant. But, I weigh 209 pounds. I just stayed with what I was doing. I will admit I did not track calories. I ate healthy. NO I mean no sweets and my body felt better than any of my other 3 pregnancies not the spikes in blood sugar. I did walk away the pounds and water aerobics and I felt awesome and lost all my baby weight in 6 weeks. that was unheard of for me. But, I only gained 20 pounds. For someone weigh in at over 200 that's ok. Best wishes. You can do this.

    Congrats!!! When it's so early in pregnancy you don't really need that many extra calories a day if you're already eating healthy and have a little bit of weight on you. Try adding a glass of nonfat milk and you will be fine! Baby is going to suck the calcium right out of you, so it's a great choice. Best wishes to you!

    I'd definitely listen to your body. Eat when you are hungry. That baby won't let you starve him/her. So glad you can still do your turbojam. Having fun fitness activities to look forward to might helps us stay consistent when life gets crazier.

    I agree with IVNARU - it's all about the healthy choices. Keep the kitchen full of great, baby- and mama-nourishing foods and those habits will be cemented by the time the little one arrives!

    Congrats on the big news! Im on my 8th month and cant say that I have changed much in regard to my diet - I eat when we're hungry and thats about it - just choose healthier options like a banana instead of a snickers bar. Both sweet but one will keep you fuller longer and is good for you and baby. Good luck to you both!!!
