Still, 5lbs is great Crystal! You could have gone overboard, but you didn't, and that's great! And I bet when you leave the hospital you will lose a LOT more than 5lbs, meaning you've lost some.
Holly, I love myfitnesspal! I use it on my iPod. It's great b/c you can figure out calories for 'bad' things you've eaten, like take out or fast food, and then make up your calories elsewhere. Or plan your day of eating from the start and not have to worry. It helped me lose 10lbs before getting preggo. And of course, you awesome ladies help out too. :D
Sounds like a good app. I will have to check it out.
Hiya ladies! I posted over on our BLC thread. I thought everyone had posted but now I think I jumped the gun. I did SO good today. Tomorrow will be harder because I will be stressing out about something and when I do this, I over eat.
Good for you Kim! I didn't do so great on day one but I did stay well within my cals, probably why I didn't gain much this pregnancy. I'm just not eating that much over all. Today I will do better!
OB this morning, really hoping I don't end up with a resident. I really like this doc today so I want to see her...
I did okay with everything yesterday except my diet. I had all four kids home alone w/me yesterday for the first time, and my little guy has definitely got the Terrible Two's down to a science. I had a meltdown after he had his 7th meltdown and ate a bunch of Valentine candy. Bad!! Hoping for a much better day today!
Yeah, so I discovered that the Cheesecake Factory supplies our local small-town middle of nowhere Barnes and Noble with yummy treats. I did well by only eating half of a cupcake, but it was probably still 400 calories. Also, I made a healthy lunch and turned into a starving fiend in the afternoon. I am trying to eat healthy, but I am breastfeeding and we have twins.
Today there is a 20 minute zumba class at a free dance expo downtown. I might do it because I think I can survive 20 minutes. It will be my first cardio in a year for medical reasons. I am a little worried because I have some funny knee pain in both my knees - from the twins pregnancy. Obviously my body did not like being 212 pounds.
Hubby did let me sleep most of the night and handled the feedings... so I get points for that, but only because my hubby suffered.
Tiffany, ummmm Cheesecake you say? I am drooling over here. I've never been to one. Not being able to eat dairy products is seriously killing me! I love anything cheese related so much. That stinks about your knees. I have really really bad knees and can't do any exercising that is squat related so I understand in that dept. Have you ever tried Pilates? It's really easy on the knees.
Holly, wow! That's some supermom power going on right there. Don't feel bad for eating candy at all. I had my three yesterday and in the morning I would have downed some chocolate if I could have. My oldest has ADHD and was up until 130am!!! Needless to say the morning was crazy. How is Cameron adjusting his new sister?
Good luck at the OB Crystal!
Kim, good job eating healthy yesterday. I was waiting to post over there to make sure Mia wasn't joining us. I hope she does.... Miaaaaaaa where are yooooooou. LOL
AFM, yesterday I ate like a champ too. But seriously, it's not that tricky when you can't enjoy junk. Heh heh. I did make strawberry cupcakes for my son's bday today. Then at 4am this morning, I ate one. Whoops. Ya do crazy things at 4am..... They aren't that many calories honestly. But I'm sure after I make the chocolate frosting they'll be all kinds of naughty......
BTW, the first challenge is up and it's an easy one. Just goals.
Should we wait one more day for Mia? Or just head over to chat on the BL thread? What do you guys think?
Oh I just checked the BLC sign up and Mia just signed up this morning. Yay! So wait to chat until she gets her point tracking set up. We'll just stay here till then. She said she wad going to do that after her kids were down for naps later.
OB went ok, had a resident :( but she is nice enough. went from 2+ to 'a good 3' and long to at least 50 % effaced and very soft cervix. Some progress is better than none I suppose.
Holly and Marie - We don't have any Valentines candy in the house but we still have some Christmas chocolate left. What I am really craving though is ice cream cake from DQ and we don't have a Dairy Queen anywhere close (at least a 2 hour round trip). Plus ice cream gives me tummy aches so I'm better off not anyway lol
Tiffany - Mmmm Cheesecake factory? I've heard good things but never had anything from there before. I love cheesecake too...
Marie - do 4am calories REALLY count? I'm inclined to say no lol it's not breakfast, it's not even a midnight snack - it's survival mode!
I'm trying to plan my day out food wise so I do better than my choices yesterday, breakfast was good now I need to figure out lunch and some snacks... frig I'm hungry already!
Crystal- I am sorry you didn't get to see the Dr you wanted. :(
Holly- hugs, being home with all the kids can be rough. I end up having meltdowns after my son T has his meltdowns.
Tiffany- cheesecake???? I am drooling. Let us know how Zumba goes.
Marie- I want a cupcake now. I think we can say I am hungry.
I woke up sick. I have sore throat, runny and stuffy nose, etc. I am miserable.
