Hey Hey 11.30- my birthday! Turning 30 this year (yikes!)
Okay, so I need a plan. I am starting to eat like a LUNE. I had been holding steady at 255 but now if it tells you anything, in the past week and a half (give or take) I weighed at 263 last night!
Granted, I found out this baby is apparently huge according to the scans we had a few weeks ago (I was just 31 weeks and she was measuring to be 5lbs 9 ounces :D) so I'm sure baby, blood, fluid, etc has some face in that but STILL, I know some of it isn't - because like I said I've just been eating willy nilly lately.
I. have. to. get. a. handle. on. this. before. it's. too. late.
I've bragged and bragged that I've done so well compared to my last pregnancy, but honestly its not going to take much much more and I'm going to be right up there close to what I was with my first baby.
Just for technical purposes, I started both out around 230ish. With my first, I remember weighing in at literally 300 pounds right before I had him at 37 weeks.
With this baby, I started out around 230 (maybe a little less) again, and I just weighed tonight at 263 at 33 weeks. I will say that is much better, but at the same time I'm telling you it is easy as PIE to to gain this weight. It would not take a miracle for me to gain about 20 pounds in a few weeks time. Lets not. Lets not.
So with the baby being so big, my doc said it wouldn't hurt a thing if I wanted to watch my carbs. I had already been trying to do that a little bit- but with little success. So excluding today (it is my birthday- I'm sure we will go to eat and stuff) where I will just be looking at calories mostly (I will not exceed 1900!!), I am also going to start watching some carbs. Here is my plan.
Breakfast- at least 5 days a week, I will have oatmeal or raisin bran with a glass of OJ. That's pretty carby- but I really need that fiber and the vitamin C. I am going to have it in the morning though so I'll have time to work it off throughout the day.
Lunch- some type of meat with a low-carb tortilla, or eggs with a low carb tortilla.Sides would be pickles, mushrooms, peas, anything really that falls in that category. Peanut butter.
Snack- Protein Shake
Dinner- Meat with low carb tortilla and veggies and one startch (potato, whole grain rice, etc)
Snack- jello and peanut butter
Look this is a good deal. Lets do this and stop. drinking. pop! Just stop. Today is day 1 of revisiting no pop. On my birthday.
Also no excepts on our walking schedule. I'm supposed to be up to 8000 now and I regressed back this last week and can barely hit 7000. Lets at least get 7000 a day this week.
LETS GO YOU'VE GOT THIS! Only a month or so before baby is here and we can work on getting back to losing this WEIGHT YES.
New goal: 180 by 4th of July! Let's go ahead and get a jumpstart!!
