I am mostly doing well but there are times when I am struggling, my eating is not as good as it could be, I find myself snacking much more than I used to or really want to. So this week NO ADDED SUGAR. So snacks will be fruit, better for me anyways and since I have to cut it up I have to really want it, far to easy to grab something that is packaged. I am trying to be less lazy.
I have not stepped on the scale in a couple of weeks, last time I was at the midwife I had gained 10 pounds, the downside 7 of them were since my last visit 6 weeks earlier so I’m hoping to not hit 7 again next week. I tried to run a couple of times, it sucked. Between the sore hips and the bladder issues it is just out, the breasts finally stopped hurting but too late to get the running groove back on. I did manage to run 2 miles a couple of weeks ago but it sucked so it’s out. What really stinks is that now walking is really killing my hips too, I have decided it is probably because of all of the hills. I have signed up for a pre-natal water aerobics class that I hope I like, I need more activity that is is fun, walking is no longer fun it is boring and I hate having to do it twice once for me and once for the dogs, the hills just make me scream.
I still feel like I look fat not pregnant, my loving husband agreed today, isn’t he nice??? In fairness I asked but yeah it sucks. At least I feel the baby move now and know it’s real. We still cannot agree on a name she has her middle names and last name but still no first name, why oh why was a boy’s name so easy????
I haven’t felt much like blogging, this blog is my weight loss journey not my day to day life and the intersections between weight loss and my life right now strike me as mostly whiny. I’m happy to be pregnant I wish I didn’t have to lose my body in the process. But I do have a few things to share. My garden sucked this year, we got a handful of good stuff but mostly it was a disappointment. Half of it drowned with the constant rainfall and anything that really needed any kind of heat to grow didn’t. That would be our tomatoes, peppers, eggplants etc. We had some great green beans and zucchini and an awesome crop of potatoes but everything else was a wash and a massive waste of money which pisses me off. I decided to put in a new bed this year since we had such explosions last year but this year nothing but suckage, oh well.
I tried a great new mostly healthy chicken chili recipe that was totally easy and practically no cook since it started with a rotisserie chicken. It turned out great check it out and was super simple which is awesome at the moment because my motivation to cook is not what it was. I have planned a ton of meals that I plan to make in November and freeze for once the baby is born so we don’t have to live on take out or packaged crap. So I have all the meals planned and the grocery shopping list. I plan to spend a couple of days cooking and freezing, wish me luck and motivation
Okay I have rambled enough, I will try to update more often, I’m sure you are all dying to get my updates LOL
