Well, I abandoned WWW the past several weeks and now you know why :) Although i pretty much followed WW and my original diet up until recently I did splurge more on the weekends and I can see the results of that (IT'S NOT GOOD)! I will be honest, I am having a really hard time figuring out what to eat, what not to eat, how to adjust my caloric intake and such!! We all know I am pretty obsessive over my weight, but I have always been healthy about it! I don't want to gain too much and I don't want to too little! But in due time (and lots of research and reading) I will figure it all out. My Dr says right now the baby doesn't require THAT much extra food than I am eating already (so I can't use being pregnant as an excuse to down 4 slices of pizza instead of two) :)
I am not going to follow WW while I am pregnant but I am going to watch what I eat, as I have always done! At this point I am already having some food aversions. Not many cravings but aversions for sure. Like, for one, I was eating a salad almost every night with dinner, but now, the thought of lettuce and dressing makes me want to vomit! And I am not craving some foods as much as I once did. It's strange. But I have been reading that this is all normal. My sweet husband bought me the book "What to Expect When You're Expecting" right after we found out and I have been reading up (hence my pause on the Twilight series)!
I know there are many questions that are going to pop in my head about pregnancy and I am so glad I have some fellow bloggers that are going through or have recently gone through what I am!
So I probably won't have much going on with WWW until Baby Beanie arrives, but know that after, I will be jumping right back on the Fit Train!!! Believe me!! And I am determined to get back down to my goal weight!! It will happen :)
Hubs and I are planned to run a 10K about 3 months after Beanie is born! So I will have very little time to get prepared for that, but that's my motivation :) And I do plan to run throughout my pregnancy. After talking to my Dr, since I have been running all along, it's ok to continue. I am listening to my body and I am not pushing myself too hard. I have lowered my intensity of running and basically just jog now! It really keeps me sane and let's me know that I am working hard to keep my body in shape. Being pregnant is no excuse to gain 40 or 50 lbs. I plan to only gain around 20. I will keep you (honestly) updated on my body's changed! After all, I need some place to vent!! :)
So after sharing the news, I got some of the sweetest comments, emails, cards and even a few gifts.
My dear IRL friend Tracy made me a beautiful Auburn burp cloth. It's so cute and it means so much because she MADE it!! Thanks my dear!!
And my IRL friend Meredith got me the most precious sterling silver cup for Beanie and we will have it engraved once we know if it will be a boy or girl!!
My mom of course has done some shopping. She bought Beanie an Auburn pacifier and bib. They are precious and an Auburn baby book. So cute!
Hubs got me the cutest onsie with a little monkey on it for Valentines Day! I looove monkeys :)
