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!
I’ll call this “one chin wonder! ”
Once again not a weight-loss blog so come back tomorrow for weigh loss!
Well me and my husband went on a mini vacation this weekend. I think this is what we needed. Just a little time together away from everything and relax. I haven’t worried about the diet at all this weekend. Tomorrow I’m getting back on track. I just needed to stop worrying about everything and be with my husband this weekend.
We decided that even though our baby stopped growing before it was even big enough to see that we decided to give our angel baby a name. I wanted a girl very badly so we decided it would have been a girl and we would have named it Avery Elaine. I feel some kind of closure now. I know I will never be the same but that could be a good thing. I got to experience 11 weeks of pregnancy even though my baby stopped growing around 1 or 2 weeks. I know I’m still going to cry and hurt but I’m going to be okay eventually.
We are going to wait until I have my first menstrual cycle then try again. Until then I’m going to work off this vacation weight and focus on losing so we have be healthy for my next pregnancy. A year ago it wouldn’t even have been possible to get pregnant now we know we can. I’m praying very hard that we get pregnant soon. If you are religious at all please pray for us. It has been very hard understanding why God has done this to us but I know there’s a reason I just can’t see it right now. Thank you for all the support I appreciate it.
