I think I got a stomach bug. I woke at 2am really close to throwing up-and I am not a thrower upper.

Today the plan went a bit off. I think it will be better if I just post what I ate after the day is done. Then I am not writing it out twice and I can also keep a word doc open and comment on how I am feeling when I eat too.

Today was my little mans 3rd birthday. We had so much fun today. I feel so much more present with him these past days. Enjoying him so much more without all the stress weighing on me about the pregnancy.

This afternoon I was so sick to my stomach I couldn't eat more than half the salad at lunch-so I had half of a whole grain english muffin with some butter and jam instead.

This afternoon I had a handful of grapes and some strawberries.
Tonight I had about a cup and a half of cereal, a cup of soymilk and some melon.

I am pooped.

This evening I was trying to put together my sons train table and was feeling tired. When my husband came home from work, I thought he was upset with me, and almost decided to chow down on the cupcakes I was making. I recognized it and just let it sit. I didn't eat a cupcake, I had some melon instead.

Now I am going to have a cup of tea and go to bed.

How are you guys doing?

I've been off my plan and feeling miserable about it, a lashing in my brain for all that I should have been doing, instead of shoving candy in, hand over fist.

It wasn't the weekend, I was conscious and planned as I said. It was the after-math, the last two days of being exhausted and catching up. I forgot about that - that I can't handle sleep deprivation and that I always eat too much when I'm in that mode.

Today is my weigh-in and I'm dreading, almost positive I won't go just because. But these are the times that I should, and I should stay for the meeting as well.

Instead today, I choose to forgive myself. I'll weigh-in here and then I'll go power walk outside. The air is fresh and crisp - a big storm last night blew everything out and I can take in nature and regroup my brain.

I know we're not virtual partners here, but honestly, you doing this while I'm doing this...it helps me and that's why I've written such a long comment, in hopes that it helps you too.

Happy Birthday to your boy-o, three is the most delicious age. xoxo

For me, having a long term goal helps most. Yeah I want to get healthy, but what I really want is to look good in my swim suit this summer :) It's the day-to-day, minute-by-minute struggle that's been playing with my mind. I try to keep the snack drawer stocked with nuts (like almonds) or trail mix when I need a quick fix or if I feel my sugar levels dropping.
I've been taking 2 cardio/weight training classes a week - and I have to tell you - I've seen such a good result. The weight training makes a big difference. Today, I'm taking my first Pilates class..
Be gentle with yourself. It's real easy to beat yourself up if you make mistakes. I've made a ton. I just keep telling myself that it took a long time to get where I am, so it makes sense that I won't really *get* into these new habits overnight. It's a slow process, but keep believing in yourself.
Happy Bday to your boy. I have a little Marchie too.
