Pregnancy Week 5

Saturday, July 05, 2014

Things are going well other then some slight fatigue. I also wake up a little queasy this week but once I start out eating/drinking water it goes away. I make sure to eat small meals at a high frequency to make sure I don't feel sick all day.

I am excited to grow this little seed! ;) I've been making sure to eat really healthy with the slight exception of snacking last night. I'm also not sweating the small stuff and just trying to focus on eating well and exercising. The exercise helps because its the only think that seems to wake me up and make me feel energized.

I am so glad that I had started eating healthy and working out consistently again. I found out I am pregnant last week!!! Randy and I are very excited.

I got my weight down to 153 considered at the low end of the "overweight" range on the BMI spectrum. Although I take this with a grain of salt because BMI doesn't take into account muscle vs fat and I have been heavily lifting weights and doing drills at the gym. I would've liked to be down more but I am happy with the progress I've made in my lifestyle.

This will be my first child and I am so very excited!! I am only just 5 weeks along so its still very early. I have been experiencing a lot of fatigue. I've been trying to eat well and work out to combat it.

Changing my thinking.

Monday, May 12, 2014

I felt really discouraged at the end of last week. I kept thinking 'I was so much better at this LAST time around." And because of that, I allowed myself to make poor choices this weekend.

But it dawned on me, there is NO "last time" around. This is a journey and a process. I need to keep that in mind and stop being so hard on myself. I also started to feel run down last week. And the snot just hit me like a ton of bricks yesterday. Exhaustion and illness totally played a factor in this journey last week. If i consider all of that, I think I did pretty good.

I made it to personal training today and it was hard. I was exhausted towards the end. Doesn't help it that I can't breathe. I got through it though.

Nonscale success: I can lift more than I started.

Things I'm thankful for today:
A smooth work day.
My husband.

    Being compassionate to yourself is so important. You have done well to increase your weights and workout despite being ill and exhausted.
You are right. This is a continual journey..a daily choice. That was an insightful blog.

Irritable or is it Hangry?

Thursday, May 08, 2014

I've been extremely irritable this week. I'm not sure what my problem is. Is it my body's reaction to adjusting to calorie restriction? Last time around, I didn't ever feel THIS irritable, at least not that I know of. I know I've been constantly on the go for the last two weeks so that may have something to do with it.

I've given up drinking coke for the most part, but I took up drinking coffee...I am wondering if the caffeine in the coffee is making me irritable? I will cut it out and see if it helps.

Nonscale victory: my arms feel stronger.

Things I'm thankful for today:
Having only one more semester to go before receiving my Master's Degree!
My husband, he's a great guy.
Cameron. He's a great kid.
Good weather!


Mental Break

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

I don't know if it was the right or wrong thing to do but I decided to take a night off from the gym. I actually made it all the way to the gym, was walking to warm up for class, and then left. I am still in a lot of pain from my work outs on Monday (and Tuesday) and then I've been on the constant go for the last two weeks that I feel burnt out.

After going from 6 months of inactivity, and then jumping back last week for 5 out of the 7 days, I felt like this break wouldn't be horrible. Work is also incredibly stressful right now. I have had little time to de-compress from work the last two weeks because Randy has had recent hand surgery so I have had to pick up some extra chores around the house and also help take care of him.

I feel like I have had no moment to myself.

Currently Randy's at work, and I am just sitting here by myself relaxing. If I wasn't watching what I was consuming, I'd be having a glass of wine right now LOL! Instead I will blog and drink some fruit infused water. :)

Nonscale Victory of the day:
I felt really good in the dress I wore today. :)

Things I am thankful for:
having one more semester of grad school left prior to graduation.
my health.
My husband and Cameron.
A job that keeps food on the table.
