Can't decide if I made a decent choice, or a not-so-good one...

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

So Today was totally off rhythm. I woke up early, didn't eat when I first got up (I was expecting to eat when I got back from running my errand). By the time I got home, it was too late; I was getting sick. So I choked down some crackers to settle my tummy, and then I packed up breakfast, lunch, an apple for a snack, & 2 hard boiled eggs, and went about my plans. Halfway to where I was going (I was walking) I pulled out the eggs and ate 1. And was promptly sick again. *sighs*

So ok, I get where I was going, I get my soy for the morning, and its fine. So I have the other egg & some water. I have my sandwich for lunch. Then my apple. After I track all this I've had about 611 calories. Not cool. It's now about 2ish; and I have to get my second soy soon. So I splurge on a cheese danish with it. My calories are back up where they belong for pregnant & this time of day; but the danish wasn't exactly good for me. Irregardless, I feel better having more in my tummy.

Just still not sure if I should have done that or gone home and found other stuff. I have a healthy dinner planned (pork chops, sweet potatos, and spinach salad!) , and I will likely have a healthy desert (yogurt and frozen fruit!).

So I guess it wasn't too bad. It's just frustrating me that i pack as much food as I do, and I'm still shy on calories & food. Really didn't want to spend the extra $ tho.

Grr. I can't wait for my body to level out again!

    I think all things considered you did just fine - walking back home just to walk back again would have been crazy considering you were already feeling funky. I hear you about not wanting to spend the extra $, but other than that you did just fine sis.

    I'll nicely remind you too that, if you plan on breastfeeding, don't count on your body getting back to "normal" any time soon after Nathan is born either - your body will still need the extra calories to help your body do what it needs to do to breastfeed.

    At the end of every day ask yourself - "In that moment, with what I had, with how I was feeling, with what was going on, did I make the best possible choice for Nathan & I?" As long as you can answer yes sis, you're doing just fine.

    Love You, hope you enjoyed watching "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" tonight & that it gave you the laughs you needed. "Captain Hammer threw a car at my head!" "The hammer is my....." yeah ROFLOL

    Love Ya Sis!!

    I do the opposite. I seemed to eat and eat and my calorie counts are always under my prescribed calorie intake. I can't figure that out. Guess I'll have to eat a piece of cake. Hmmmm. Can't win for losing. I know exactly what you're talking about . I'm just going in the opposite direction.
