Well hello again…
That is about all I can come up with after being gone so long. Shame on me, I know. After finally saying good bye to the first trimester, I am for once feeling like myself again. It seemed that sitting at the computer and trying to type something, anything just made me sick to my stomach. Now? I am 12 1/2 weeks along and getting back into the groove (slowly) of blogging once again. Shall we catch up??
Where did I leave off? Let’s see. During my pregancy announcement here at the sisterhood I wrote of not wanting to gain as much weight as I did with my last pregnancy, setting a goal of about 25# pounds. Also I believe I rambled something of trying to make this a healthier pregnancy for myself and my baby.
How have I been doing? Well thankfully since my last weigh in on Feb 18th I have only gained one pound. With several weeks of nausea and indigestion food not only sounded awful, it tasted awful.
Just as I was starting the couch to 5k program I learned of this surprise pregnancy and all my exercise came to a screaching hault. After a misscarriage in the begining of February, I was shocked to find out that I was still carrying another embryo. (for those of you who are new here, the story is here) With each doctor appointment I had I would beg to start walking on the treadmill to keep active and yet every appointment I would get the same answer, no. While my eating was under control, my exercise and lack there of has suffered these past 6-8 weeks.
So after losing weight here on Shrinking Jeans, my food comsumption has been weighing heavily on my mind. Every thing I put in my mouth I stop and think if it’s worth it in the long run. (will this swiss cake roll be the culprit of my post-partum weight crisis???) My only wish is that I would have lost another 20 pounds before getting pregnant, but such is life. With this new challenge and mini-challenges here at the sisterhood, it’s my hope that I can once again become empowered to continue to make healthy food choices and start a light exercise routine.
That’s what I’ve been up to ladies and gent, but I want to know what all of you have been up to! I have still been reading this site daily but tell me of one good habit you have picked up since you came into the sisterhood. Really, share.
Mine is my water intake. It has made such a great difference!
