Monday’s are always the hardest days of the week. I never want to wake up and go to work but sadly I have to. Today wasn’t that bad i guess. My students were restless but I can’t really expect much from the day before Halloween and tomorrow and Wednesday will be worse. I just have to push through.
My next doctors appointment is Wednesday. We are scheduling my 3rd trimester ultrasound which I’m really excited about. I love seeing my baby girl. Our 3D ultrasound is next Friday. I hope she cooperates more this time and we can actually get a better peel at her face. She will be bigger this time though. I’ll be I. The 3rd trimester on Saturday. It just kind of hit me that she will be here soon!
For breakfast I had scrambled eggs with salsa. 6g carbs.
For lunch I had a salad with bacon and blue cheese dressing. I also had 3 mini bell peppers. 9g carbs.
For dinner I have chicken with cheese and a little bit of sugar free bbq sauce. 4g carbs.
For a snack I had a couple Turkey hot dogs and pork rinds. 6g carbs.
Total carbs for the day 25g. Under my daily goal by 5g! Not too bad!
I could have drank more water through the day today. I put reminders on my phone to remind me to drink starting tomorrow so I should do better.
This morning I had to retake my glucose test to see if I have gestational diabetes. More than likely I don’t because I passed the first time. I have just been eating like crap. I am really proud of myself for this weekend though. I stayed on track and was even tempted to cheat again but didn’t. It’s easier than I thought it would be.
Today at school was rough. I was tired and didn’t want to be here which is not usual. I love my job but today just wasn’t a good day. There were cookies in the teachers lounge and I was so tempted to eat one. I didn’t which I’m proud of. I have to learn to separate my emotions from food again. I did it before and I can definitely do it again.
For breakfast I had scrambled eggs with ham, cheese, and salsa. 8g carbs.
For lunch I had salad with rotisserie chicken and blue cheese dressing. 5g carbs.
For dinner we had taco bowls. Mine had salsa and cheese. 14g carbs.
For a snack I had a couple Turkey hotdogs. 5g carbs.
Total carbs for the day 32g. Only over my goal by 2g carbs. Not too bad!
I did drink a lot more water than usual today. At school I drank 48oz and at home I drank 32oz more. So 80oz for the whole day. Not bad!
So I have taken an extremely long break from low carb. I have gained a bunch of weight back. Today my doctor told I needed to get back on it because I’m gaining too much this pregnancy. I agree with him I do need to get back on it. Starting tomorrow I start low carb back up again.
Tonight we are leaving for a small vacation. Our last one before the baby is born. Tonight we are just going to enjoy ourselves but tomorrow I start over. Im going to be blogging everyday again because I feel like it has kept me accountable in the past. I am also going to buy a new fit bit. Our dog ate my last one. Doctor suggested taking more steps everyday.
I feel good. I just need to get back on it for our little girl. I haven’t posted in such a long time I will posted one of the ultrasound pictures we got today below!
I haven’t taken full body progress pictures in a long time. So here they are!
Today I felt really good. I woke up and was in a really good mood. When I got to work a co-worker asked me what diet I have been doing. I told her low carb and what I can and can’t have. She told me she’s considering trying it and that I looked really good. I hardly even know this other teacher so it’s really nice to hear that other people want to try this way of eating because they see my success. I need to keep going and keep making progress.
I know for sure I’m not going to make my 300 goal. I have really been slacking on my progress again. I need to get back to it. I have 23 days until June and 27lbs to lose. I would have to lose a little over 1 pound a day and so far that’s not happening. I really need to figure it out. Someone told me that the middle of the year is only 8 weeks away. That’s it just 8 weeks and I literally have nothing to show for it. I have to get it together. I have a goal to reach!
I skipped breakfast.
For lunch I had tuna and pork rinds. 0g carbs and 470 calories.
For dinner we had low carb chicken cordon blue. 3g carbs and 1,575 calories.
Total carbs for the day 3g. Under my 20g carb goal. Total calories for the day 2,045. Over my calorie goal by 445. Not too terrible but not at my goal.
I drank about 70oz of water today. Tomorrow I’m going to try for the full 100oz.
Starting today I will be posting how much weight I lost over the week like I did before. I think this will help me keep track of my progress. I did okay this week. I got back down to where I was before I cheated last time. I’m hoping to be at least 4 more pounds down by next Sunday. I just have to stay strong and keep moving!
Sundays are always the worst day of the week for me. I always hang out with my family in Sundays which is always nice but they always go by too fast. Today was a rough day. I just keep thinking that I would have been 18 weeks pregnant tomorrow. Almost half way done. I’m in a lot of pain today and I just want to eat whatever I can get my hands on. I didn’t but I still wanted to.
I skipped breakfast.
For lunch i had chicken and cheese with a little bit of ranch. 7g carbs.
For dinner I had pork rinds with cheese and salsa. 6g carbs.
For a snack I had two hot links. 2g carbs.
Total carbs for the day 15g. Over my carb goal of 10g but still under 20g so I’m good.
I have no idea how much water I drank today. I didn’t really care about tracking it.
Well today was stressful. Work has a lot of new stuff going on that I just need to get done. I’m so overwhelmed with everything at school. Teaching is nothing like it what I thought it would be while I was taking classes. There’s so much admin stuff you have to do. So much paper work and data. I’m proud of myself though. I wanted to stress eat but I didn’t.
Tonight is date night. We are gonna no to see Logan in IMAX. It should be fun but I will have to resist popcorn and candy again. I will be able to do it.
I skipped breakfast.
For much I had part of a chicken salad. 11g carbs.
For dinner I had some hot links. 9g carbs.
For a snack I had Parmesan chips. 0g carbs.
Total carbs for the 20g. More than I have eaten in a awhile. Hopefully it doesn’t go up.
I know I didn’t drink enough water today. Hopefully I don’t get leg cramps tonight!
