Well i cheated yesterday for lunch again. I’m back on track today. We had our 3rd trimester ultrasound yesterday afternoon. We got to see our beautiful baby. She actually looks like a baby! Something in my mind switched after that appointment. It was one of those this is real moments. I guess it hit me that I really need to be taking my health seriously for our little girl. Over the last year I’ve worked my butt off trying to lose weight so that I was healthy enough to get pregnant. Now that I am I can’t go back to where i was. I can’t be a good mother if I get back to where I was.
Tomorrow is my Friday. This week went by so quick. I hope tomorrow goes by fast because we have our redo 3D ultrasound on Friday. I cannot wait to see her again. I really hope we get some good pictures of her this time.
For breakfast I had a Jimmy Dean scramble. 2g carbs.
For lunch I had a salad. 5g carbs.
For dinner we had unless sloppy Joes. 21g carbs.
For a snack I had a couple Turkey hotdogs. 4g carbs.
Total carbs for the day 32g carbs. Only 2g carbs over my goal for the day. Not bad!
I didn’t get too much water today so hopefully I don’t get leg cramps tonight. I need to set reminder on my phone again to get me to drink.
This week is a short week at school since veterans day is this week. I’m actually excited about this week. I have two ultrasounds. One for my doctor tomorrow afternoon then one on Friday for our redo 3D ultrasound. I hope Miss Emma cooperates! It is bittersweet though. I won’t get to see her again until she’s born. It’s getting closer though. I can’t believe it how fast it is going by.
I weighed myself this morning to see how much damage i did over my little cheating binge last week. I’m up 6lbs. I’m need to get back on track and lose that before my next appointment. I want to try and maintain around where I was. I keep using pregnancy as an excuse to cheat but what am I going to do after I have her. I will still need to continue low carb afterwards because I am so far from where I want to be.
For breakfast I had a Jimmy Dean scramble. 2g carbs.
For lunch I had a salad with ham,bacon, egg, and blue cheese dressing. 5g carbs.
For dinner we had applewood smoked pork loin. 12g carbs.
For a snack I had some pork rinds and a few Turkey hotdogs. 4g carbs.
Total carbs for the day 23g. Under my 30g carbs goal for the day!
At school today I drank about 40oz of water. Then at home I drank about another 20oz. So I drank somewhere around 60oz of water today.
I weighed myself this morning and I’m up 2lbs from yesterday. Usually when I cheat it like waits a day then shows up. So I cheated Sunday and it showed up today. I was on track yesterday and I will be on track today so maybe I can drop a pound before tomorrow. I would love to go into my doctors appointment and show I haven’t gained any weight on the past two weeks. I’ve been trying really hard to not gain anymore than i have to.
Today was Halloween. Work was a little crazy because kids were excited about trick or treating after school. I know tomorrow will be worse. It at least it’s Wednesday and we are already half way through the week. I look at the calender today and we only have a few more weeks until thanksgiving break. I just have to make it until then and I get a break!
For breakfast o had scrambled eggs. 3g carbs.
For lunch I had salad with chicken, bacon, bell peppers,and blue cheese dressing.
For dinner we had unless burgers. I broke down and had ketchup on mine. 32g carbs.
For a snack I had a couple Turkey hot dogs. 6g carbs.
Total carbs for the day 50g. I read the ketchup label wrong. I thought it said 2g carbs per tablespoon but it actually said 4g. So 20g carbs over my goal. I’ll so better tomorrow!
I drank about 60ish ounces of water today. Which is more than I usually get so that’s good!
26 weeks today!! I feel like the weeks are going by so slow now. Im hoping once i get to 30 weeks it will start going faster! I had a lot to do today. I woke up around 7 like I do everyday. I had to start getting one of our dogs ready for an adoption fair because sadly we can’t keep him any longer. Sadly he didn’t get adopted today. I also had to go grocery shopping and start helping my mom and sister plan my baby shower next weekend. We bought a couple decorations and ordered the cake. It’s pretty much stressing me out. Everything is stressing me out yesterday.
I did try to do more steps today. I got up to 5,300. Not even close to my 10,000 goal but better than I usually get on weekends!
For breakfast I had two strong cheese sticks. 2g carbs.
For lunch I had a chicken salad from Subway. 14g carbs
For dinner we had chipotle seasoned chicken with a little but of cheese and ranch. 13g carbs.
For a snack I had pork rinds with blue cheese dressing. 3g carbs.
Total carbs for the day 32g. Once again over my goal by 2g. So not too bad but tomorrow I need to stay under my goal.
I drank around 60oz of water today and I’m going to try and drink a little bit more before I go to bed tonight!
Well I let stress get to me yesterday and I cheated pretty much all day. I had a burger and fries for lunch, pizza and wings for dinner, and hubby did a late night run to taco bell for some tacos and a burrito. Needless to say I feel like crap today. I have 5 days until my next doctors appointment. I am hoping to at least be where I was at my past appointment by then. Yesterday I started a little count down on my phone. I wanted to see how many days until my due date. 99 days from today my little girl will be here! That is it just 99 days until my life completely changes. It’s crazy to think about. I’m nervous about being a mom but I’m honestly more excited!
Today at school we had fall parties. All that means is a lot of sugary sweets and pizza. We also had a teacher luncheon during lunch. The theme was a tour of Italy. They had all of my favorites out. It was so hard to resist! I just ended up having a salad. I did good today. It sucked at the time but now I’m proud of myself. I got through it. Even at dinner tonight my husband cheated and I still stayed on track even though cheese fries sounded really good.
For breakfast I had some beef jerky. 5g carbs.
Do lunch I had a salad with ranch and broccoli and baby carrots. 16g carbs.
For dinner I had a grilled chicken salad with blue cheese dressing. 12g carbs.
Total carbs for the day 33g carbs. Only over my goal by 3g. So not too bad it definitely could have been a lot worse!
I only had about 32oz ofc water to drink today. I’m going to drink a little bit more before so hopefully no leg cramps for me tonight!
This week is really dragging on. I don’t know if it’s because we just came back from fall break or the lack of sleep from not being able to get comfortable at night but I’m ready for it to be Friday! I have just been exhausted all week. Last night I went to bed about 11 and woke up at 2 then I was up for the rest of the day. I know it will probably be like that once Emma is born but I’m still miserable right now.
I did weigh myself this morning and I am down a couple pounds. My next doctors appointment is next Wednesday. I am hoping to at least lose a few more pounds. I have been working really hard these past few days to get back on track and get my weight under control. I refuse to gain anymore. This isn’t because of the baby anymore it’s just because I have been eating like crap for weeks. It’s so easy to give up but I’m determined for my little girl to keep going. I don’t want to 400lbs ever again!
For breakfast I had scrambled eggs with salsa. 10g carbs.
For lunch I had a salsa with chicken and blue cheese dressing. 6g carbs.
For dinner we had salsa chicks. 6g carbs.
For a snack I had a couple Turkey hotdogs. 3g carbs.
Total carbs For the day 19g carbs. Way under my daily goal of 30g!
This week is going by super slow. It is only Tuesday. We had a staff meeting where we had to present something which I hate doing. I can teach kids all long but I’m still a nervous wreck when I present to people my own age. It went okay though I’m just happy it’s over!
I weighed myself this morning and was surprised. I was down 2lbs from yesterday. Now I’m at the same weight I was at my doctors appointment last Wednesday! Hopefully I can keep this up. I know it will probably go up a little bit since I had that glucose drink yesterday. I want to see how much progress I can make over the next 8 days until my next appointment. I am tired of people telling me this diet is bad while you are pregnant. Considering people with gestational diabetes habe to do a low carb diet and I’m still get more than enough protein how is that bad? Plus my doctor said it’s okay to do as long as I keep my peorotein up.
For breakfast I had scrambled eggs with ham. 5g carbs.
For lunch I had chicken salad with blue cheese dressing. 5g carbs.
For dinner we had chipotle chicken with sugar free bbq sauce. 15g carbs.
For a snack I had Turkey hotdogs again. 5g carbs.
Total carbs for the day 30g. Right at my goal for the day!
As for water I got caught up doing a million things today so I completely forgot to drink water. I did get 32oz so far. I’m going to drink a little bit more before bed.
