I guess I have felt so negative about the limitations of my eating choices while being preg sick that I had never considered there was a positive spin to this. In the past few months, I have had to think (sometimes a little too much) about what to eat and what my body will handle. This is more awareness than typically I give on the topic of food!
Though I have been eating meat for a year now (after many years veg), lately I find myself wanting to cut most of it out again. Not sure what this is about or from where this is coming.
Had a dr. appointment last week and wasn’t please to see I weighed in at 150. I am not as concerned about the “numbers” as how I feel. I am getting over this infection and now confirmed I am pregnant. A lot happening and in the meantime I want to make sure I am not eating for comfort. I need to eat for health and balance.
After 14 years vegetarian, hubby and I are eating meat again. Okay with this change, but I can tell my body is readjusting. I am finding that I really need to have a snack-free week coming up. If I don’t ea anything after dinner (before bed) then it feels so good. Nightnsnacking kills me.
It’s serious shit. I have been upping the sea vegetables in all our diets. Can’t too be TOO conscientious. God bless the people in Japan.
I have an insatiable hunger. One explanation is that I am nursing my son. But, it’s pretty insane. So, I am trying to munch healthily and mindfully. It’s just always on my mind! I’m trying to up my protein intake so that maybe it will sustain me longer.
I have balanced my eating quite a bit. I am being more honest with myself and thinking about what I’m grabbing when I want a snack. Sometimes I am frustrated that I have to be so controlled, but I know I’m an emotional eater and so having the structure helps me from overdoing it and then feeling awful about it.
One big step is that I am off of dry cereal and eating oatmeal or 5-grain hot cereal each day, though I still sweeten it with maple syrup or brown sugar. I am drinking a lot of water again and that feels wonderful. On any given day when I start to feel sluggish I check to see how much water I’ve drunk. Usually drinking more will do the trick. I still have such weak spot for chocolate. This week I am adding some choc chips in a raw nut mix to see if that satisfies.
I’m making progress and it feels more balanced that I’m not thinking about it every second of every day.
and staying away from sweets. They are bad news!!! I also think I’m hitting my daily protein intake, which is helping me with sustained energy throughout the day. I have been not very diligent with water, however, and have to get that going again.
is vital to my success in regaining strength in my body and recovering from this pregnancy and childbirth. I am not so concerned about reaching a particular goal weight as I am feeling good and balancing my food intake. This week I remain candy-free. No more excuses.
