What now?


January 19th at 5:51my baby was born. My labor was induced and I was in labor for 24 hours before they had to do an emergency c-section. Everything was fine. Baby is doing good and I’m good just sore from the surgery. I am going to give myself a little bit to recover before starting up the diet again but I do plan on getting back on track soon. I will be back to blogging and dieting once I fully heal. I am very excited to start this new chapter in my life as a parent!

Well the past 24 hours have been a nightmare. I was on track all day yesterday. I ate lunch at 12 and then didn’t get to eat again until 9:30 this morning. My doctor called and told me my baby was measuring 2 weeks behind and that I need to go in after work and do a stress test. Then my blood pressure got super high and wasn’t gong down. So they decided to induce me. They gave me the first dose of medicine at 11. Then my blood pressure drop back to normal around 3 Am. So they decided to stop the induction since it was down. I was finally released at 8:30 this morning. So needless to say went and ate something good for breakfast that was not keto friendly. It was a rough night and I was starving the whole time. 

I need to take it easy the next few days. I have to go in to do stress tests twice a week until my due date. I also may be put on maternity leave early since my blood pressure was so high after I got off last night. I’m going to try and stick to the diet but right now it’s not my number one priority.

Last day of break and I’m really sad but at least I wont be bored anymore. Hopefully tomorrow is an easy day since kids don’t come back until Monday. There’s only 28 days until I go on maternity leave so I just have to make it until then. At least going back to work I will be more active. All break I have been lazy and it will make time go by quick.

I have my very last ultrasound on Monday. I can’t wait to see her and see how much she’s grown. Then I have another doctors appointment in 11 days. Then I go go every week appointments. Everything feels so far away but when I really think about it it’s coming up so fast. I’m excited and nervous.

I skipped breakfast because I was in a hurry this morning.

For lunch I had a grilled chicken salad with jalapenos, a hard boiled egg, and blue cheese dressing. 17g carbs.

For dinner I had steak and scrambled eggs. 2g carbs.

For a snack I had ham and cheese roll ups with ranch. 7g carbs 

Total carbs for the day 26g. Under my goal by 4g carbs.

I’m on my last two days of Christmas break. It went by so fast but I’m kind of glad to be going back. It gets boring sitting around doing nothing all day and it’s hard not to over eat while just being at home all day. I literally did nothing but lay in bed and watch tv today. I have not been sleeping well at all lately and we got a brand new bed yesterday. I slept great last night but I guess it’s one of those you sleep so well you are still tired the next day kind of things. I feel good though. It was one of the first time I. Months I was able to wake up and not be in pain.

One month from today is my due date! I can’t believe it’s only a few weeks away. I have to do my best not to gain over the next couple of weeks until she is here! I need to stay focused and keep going!

For breakfast I had some ham and cheese roll up with ranch. 7g carbs. 

For lunch I had a couple hot links with a little bit of cheese and mustard. 4g carbs.

For dinner I had pork chops with buffalo sauce. 0g carbs.

For a snack I had a Jimmy Dean scramble and later on I had pork rinds with buffalo ranch. 4g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 15g. Thats only half of my goal for the day.

Happy New years! I’m so excited to see what this year has in store for me. Only one month and two days until my due date. After i have the baby I have to recommit to this diet fully and exercise. I’ve gained a lot of weight over this pregnancy and I have to lose it. I will be breast feeding so awhile so that will help. I need to be healthy so i can be the mom I’ve always wanted to be! 

As far staying on track yesterday that didn’t happen. My husband took me on our last date of 2017 and I cheated. Then we went over to my mom’s house to celebrate and I ate way too much food that I shouldn’t have. With all that food in my stomach I passed out at around 9:30 so I didn’t even get my new years kiss from my husband! Today was a lot better. I have  a doctors appointment tomorrow and I really don’t want to see the scale!

For breakfast I had a Jimmy Dean scramble and a cheese stick. 4g carbs. 

For lunch I had a taco bowl from Qudoba. 20g carbs 

For dinner I had some hot links and a few ham and cheese roll ups. 9g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 33g. Over my goal by 3g which isnt too bad.

I didn’t sleep very well last night. I was exhausted all day. I woke up later around 10 then took a 3 hour nap later on. I definitely took under 1,000 steps today but I am on winter break from school so I guess I deserve a couple lazy days while I’m off. 

Tomorrow will be a real test for me. It’s going to be an emotional day for me. A year ago tomorrow I found out I was pregnant for the first time. I can’t believe it’s already been a year. I know i will want to eat my feelings but I can’t give in. We are also going to my mom’s for finger foods. I got some low carb stuff to eat so hopefully it won’t be too bad. I have a doctors appointment on Tuesday so I need to be as good as I can. If I don’t gain anything I may have a small cheat after my appointment. I’ve been craving pretzels really bad lately.

For breakfast I had hot links. 5g carbs.

For lunch ham and cheese rolls up with ranch. 7g carbs.

For dinner I had chicken tenders with a little bit of reduced sugar ketchup. 9g carbs.

For a snack I had 2 string cheeses. 2g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 23g carbs. Under my goal by 7g. Not bad. I know i can get through tomorrow with our cheating if I really try!

Down 2 more pounds this morning. I feel good. I’m still over where I want to be. As of this morning I’ve gained 46lbs this pregnancy. I want to continue to stay on track that way I don’t have too much work to do after baby comes. I did pretty good today though. I almost ate some lasagna for lunch. I really wanted it but I didn’t eat any. Pregnancy cravings this week have been pasta covered in a ton of sauce but I haven’t had any.

I didn’t do so well on my steps today. I had kind of a lazy day. I only got 4,300 steps which I guess isn’t the worst I’ve done but definitely not as much as I did yesterday. I have to do better tomorrow.

For breakfast I had some spinach artichoke with pork rinds. 9g carbs.

For lunch I had a couple hot links with reduced sugar ketchup and mustard. 9g carbs.

For dinner I had scrambled eggs with ham and cheese. 4g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 22g. 8g carbs under my goal. I can’t wait to see what the scale says in the morning. I’m pretty sure I’m in ketosis. Usually when I am I lose 1 or 2 pounds over night. We will see.
