I haven’t posted in a really long time. I had to stop keto for a bit because I kept getting sick trying to eat the stuff I used to. I guess now that im in the second trimester my body is doing better. I don’t get sick very much anymore. I only get neasous when I’m hungry. So today was my first day back on track. I kind of just stopped the diet because I thought I’m pregnant and I really don’t want to do it while pregnant because it’s hard with all the cravings. I went to my sister-in-laws baby shower the other day. I absolutely hated the way I looked in the pictures. I looked fat. I don’t have a bump yet because I am so big. It makes me so sad that I can’t fully enjoy this pregnancy because I just feel huge and not because of the baby.
I’m back on track today. No more excuses. I have to start again. Ive already gained 23lbs back and I’m not even half way through my pregnancy! I don’t want to gain anymore other than what the baby needs.
Breakfast I have two cheese sticks. 4g carbs.
Lunch I had a salad. The package says 26 carbs but I didn’t eat the corn or tortilla chips that came with it. I’ll just go with 20g carbs to be on the safe side.
Dinner we had buffalo chicken. 3g carbs.
Total carbs for the day 27g carbs. Not bad!
I’m trying to drink as much water as possible to be hydrated for tomorrow! Our gender ultrasound is tomorrow so we want to see what baby is!
I have been away for awhile. Keto pregnancy has been so much harder than I thought it would be. I’m at the point where I just feel gross because I have been eating like crap for a month now. I don’t even want to weigh myself. I’m back on track today and I plan on staying on track.
The baby is doing good. My next appointment is on Monday and we will get to hear the heart beat for the first time. I’m so excited to hear it.
For breakfast I had a few pieces of Turkey bacon. 0g carbs.
For lunch I had a grilled chicken salad with chipotle ranch dressing. 14g carbs.
For dinner we had taco bowls. Mine had ground beef, sour cream, cheese, and South West dip. 4g carbs.
Total carbs for the day 18g. That is so much better than I have been eating lately.
I have had a hard time drinking water lately. Today i drank one 32 oz glass of water then drank a 32 oz of water with Crystal light pink lemonade in it.
I have been putting off starting my blog up again. One reason is I have had bad morning sickness this past week and no energy. Another reason is I’m worried that something will go wrong. I’m trying to stay positive. So I’m going to start daily blogging again. I need to get back on track for me and the baby. I’m in a due date group where people are saying they gained 70-80lbs their first pregnancy! I can’t do that because I will be right back where I started a year and a half ago. I don’t want to gain fat just weight from the baby. Im kind of in this mindset that my cravings are more important than my diet which in all actuality that’s not true. There are alternatives to the cravings I have been having I’ve just been too lazy to go to the alternative. Today I start over.
7 weeks and 4 days pregnant I’m doing okay. I woke up with no morning sickness. I didn’t get very much sleep last night I just feel bleh. That’s not really a feeling but the best word I can come up with to describe it. We get to see baby again in 8 days. I’m beyond excited. I am high risk until I’m out of the first trimester which is a blessing in a way because I get to see baby more often than I would have other wise.
For breakfast 4 slices of turkey bacon. 0g carbs.
For lunch I had a grilled chicken salad with ranch. 21g carbs.
For dinner we had low carb chicken tenders with sugar free BBQ sauce. 4g carbs.
For a snack I had a few strawberries later on I also had a Kimmy Dean breakfast bowl with the potatoes taken out with a little bit of ranch. 7.2g carbs.
Total carbs for the day 32.2. over what I usually have but still not bad! It feels good to be back on track. I just need to keep that motivation!
Well I’ve been away for about 3 weeks now and honestly I haven’t been on the diet at all. I have a very special reason I have been away and now I can share it.
I found out I was pregnant 3 weeks ago!! I have been stress eating pretty much every day because my last baby was gone before we ever saw her. Needless to say I’ve been worried. Today we saw our rainbow baby and it’s little heartbeat. I’m unbelievably happy. My doctor is all for a keto pregnancy. He said I don’t have to change anything because I need the protein. So tomorrow I’m starting back up. We are gong to have a celebratory dinner tonight then back on track tomorrow! I’ll post the sonogram of my baby below!!
Well the last few weeks have been completely hectic. I have not been following my diet at all. I am so disappointed in myself because I’ve gained about 10lbs back. I’ve also cheated today too. I have to get back on track. This has been by far my longest binge since I started a year and a half ago.
Tomorrow I get back on track. So much has been going on the past couple weeks and I will continue to be stressed for a few more. I’ll have to share more about what’s going on later but I know that no matter what the situation will not get better by gaining weight. My husband made me a deal. If I cheat in the month of June he will buy gun parts out of our savings. I really don’t want that so I agreed. No more cheating for June. It’s time to get back on track!
I haven’t taken full body progress pictures in a long time. So here they are!
The picture on the left was my first day of this diet December 31st 2015. The picture on the right was today before the wedding. 115lbs down and I felt amazing!
